Metamorphosis Alpha First Edition rulebookAdventurer! We've resurrected our August 2021 Metamorphosis Alpha Bundle featuring the vintage 1976 First Edition of Metamorphosis Alpha, the tabletop roleplaying game created by James M. Ward of mutants and monstrosities on a colossal generation starship. In 2290 humanity launched its first colonization ship, the Warden. A radiation storm in deep space struck and crippled the gigantic starship. The ship's human crew died – the few survivors mutated and formed primitive civilizations – tribes struggled against a world they could not comprehend. Generations later, as a human, mutant, or robot on the Warden, you fight to survive, unaware even that your irradiated world is a spaceship. Can you uncover the secrets of the Warden and steer it back on course, or will you simply try to live another day?

For just US$9.95 you get all seven titles in this revived offer's Starter Collection (retail value $42) as DRM-free ebooks, including the 2016 Goodman Games reproduction of the complete 1976 Metamorphosis Alpha 1E First Printing rulebook (originally presented as Chapter Two of Goodman's MA 1E Deluxe Collector's Edition), plus the Referee's Screen (retail $6); three MA supplements – Creatures & Gadgets, The Mutation Manual, and Warden Armory; and two adventure sourcebooks: the introductory campaign Death Ziggurat in Zero-G and Warden Adventures.
