More MA Memories - And Stretch Goal Ideas
We’re tidied up after Gen Con and excited about the steady support for Epsilon City!
In this update: more MA memories; and some stretch goal ideas!
40 Years of Metamorphosis Alpha, Installment #3: Epsilon City is timed to release with the 40th anniversary of Metamorphosis Alpha, and we all have great memories of the game from over the years. Here's a recent memory from longtime fan Marv Breig:
My all-time favorite Metamorphosis Alpha memory has to be from GaryCon 2014, where I got to play in my first-ever game run by the legendary James M. Ward. A bunch of our characters had landed on a planet to investigate why communications had broken off. The group was allowed to pick a list of any twenty items we wanted, and naturally most of the folks got the biggest, baddest guns they could dream up. Each time we entered a new building it seemed like we lost another player character, sometimes to nasty creatures in the buildings and sometimes from characters doing dumb things that endangered other characters. By the time we decided to head back to the ship and get off the planet, there were only a couple of us left. I think that I was the only one to actually make it back to the ship, and there were some tough moments at the end when I tried to operate a ship that I didn't know how to fly. When the dust cleared I was the sole survivor and so Jim autographed my character sheet because I actually survived.
