Metamorphosis Alpha: The Warden Armory

A Sourcebook

This sourcebook includes more than 150 pieces of new combat equipment for Metamorphosis Alpha! Dozens and dozens of weapons, plus armor and shields; bots, droids, and drones; vehicles and exo-skeletons; and a few other miscellaneous items.

From the foreword by author James M. Ward:

This is a work of science fiction. The premise is that several cargo holds were filled with useful equipment for a planetary colonization effort, but unknown to the colonists, another hold was filled with powerful military weapons. The military commanders of the colonization starship Warden were the only ones who knew where this special cache was located. 

This book is intended to stimulate adventures and quests to find and use all of this equipment. It doesn’t matter what set of role-playing rules are used. Just trying to figure out how to use all of the interesting equipment is enough reason to play with this booklet. However, imagine the fun when a group of crazed mutants starts attacking using powerful suits of armor making them stronger and leap incredible distances. Player characters will want to find equipment like that for themselves. Such an effort instantly spawns a fun adventure quest. Or strange robots in the shape of dogs and giant snakes start attacking your town. You need to find out where they come from before they inflict any more damage – the trail leads… that way. 

The booklet contains countless adventure possibilities. Whether your characters are primitive tribesmen on the Warden or newly woken soldiers in cold sleep for three hundred years, the Game Master will find this a perfect supplement for high adventure.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
