From genre to genre, one of the most popular and intriguing types of characters you can play are metamorphs ? characters who change some aspect of their shape, form, or being. Ranging from supervillains who can copy anyone's appearance or powers, to werewolves and other lycanthropes, to robots with adjustable body parts, to free-floating minds that ?change shape? by possessing living beings, metamorphs exist in fascinating variety and can add a lot to your game.

The Ultimate Metamorph is your guide to creating and playing shape-changing, form-altering characters and powers in the HERO System. It includes:

?a discussion of the various types of metamorphs and how best to create them using the HERO System rules

?a review of Body-Affecting Powers such as Duplication, Density Increase, Multiform, Shape Shift, and Shrinking, with advanced and expanded rules for each

?a Metamorphic Powers chapter with nearly 300 pre-built metamorphic abilities, most with options so you can easily customize them to suit the character you have in mind

?a genre-by-genre review of metamorphs with sample characters for each type of campaign

?a Metamorphic Bestiary of common shapeshifting monsters and beings

?rules for existing and adventuring in the Microverse of the very tiny and the Macroverse of the truly gargantuan

So get ready for a change! The Ultimate Metamorph will bring new types of fun and adventure to your game!

Have not played Hero system in years but knew that I wanted to player a multiform character. Didn't even know where to start. This book has many examples and variations on a theme for multiform and shapeshifting. [...]

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.
