    Default [Kickstarter] Metamorphosis Alpha™ Minis - First Miniatures for First SciFi RPG

    We Launched yesterday, and are going strong! I want to give everyone who is new to this thread for the first time a peak of where we are now and a glimpse of our Kickstarter.

    Metamorphosis Alpha™ 28mm Miniatures Kickstarter
    [url]https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497254986/metamorphosis-alphatm-28mm-miniatures[/url]



    In 1976, while working with TSR, the original publishers of Dungeons & Dragons, James M. Ward created the foundation for another genre of adventure role-playing. His game, Metamorphosis Alpha™ Role-Playing Game, established a foundation where Science Fiction storytelling could harness the imagination of players in this classic paper and pencil role-playing game. Game enthusiasts have been waiting a long time for Metamorphosis Alpha™ to have miniatures that represent even a small portion of the incredible creatures and survivors on the Starship Warden.

    And YOU are a crucial part of making that happen!


    Pretty much everything is available at early Pledge Levels as an ADD-ON!!


    With your backing, we have the unique opportunity and honor to bring a portion of this world of imagination to life in the form of 28mm miniatures. Being able to do this is a huge honor, and we are thankful that James M. Ward is giving us this opportunity to make miniature representations of his world. We agree with Mr. Ward when he says “gaming on the Warden is better if there are visuals to look at.”

    Your support will allow us to purchase a license from James M. Ward to not only create the miniatures for this kickstarter, but also establish a schedule of quarterly releases of new Metamorphosis Alpha™ Miniatures.

    To make this all happen, we've engaged the talents of a number of artists to create sculptures using both traditional materials and 3D digital sculpting:

    Anton Ducrot
    Mark Evans
    George Fairlamb
    Shane Hoyle
    Jason Wiebe

    ORIGINAL "PRE-LAUNCH" POST BELOW!

    As some of you are aware, [URL="https://www.facebook.com/effincoolmini"]Effin Cool Minis[/URL] is a small startup and as such we are looking to crowdfunding to help us get our start and make the First Ever Miniatures for the First Sci-Fi RPG Ever Written. This is a huge honor, and we are thankful that [URL="en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Ward_%28game_designer%29#Career"]James M. Ward[/URL] liked us enough to give us this chance to make miniature representations of his world, for as he has said, "gaming on the Warden is better if there are visuals to look at."

    Game enthusiasts have been waiting a long time for [URL="https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metamorphosis_Alpha"]Metamorphosis Alpha(tm)[/URL] to have miniatures that represent some small portion of the creatures and survivors on the Warden. In 1976 [URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Ward_%28game_designer%29#Career"]James M. Ward[/URL] worked with [URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TSR_%28company%29"]TSR[/URL], the original publishers of [URL="en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dungeons_%26_Dragons"]Dungeons & Dragons[/URL], when he created the foundation for Science Fiction to meet the imagination utilizing paper and pencil through his RPG scenarios.

    The Warden was an enormous and benevolent ship whose A.I. made certain everyone was taken care of and every machine stayed in its place. At least, it did before the event that changed everything.




    In Metamorphosis Alpha, anything is possible as it takes place long after the radiation based event that reshaped the living creatures who were fleeing on the Warden to what they hoped was safety. They were wrong, and most perished but for those creatures that survived in their remote sections of this enormous ship new cultures evolved. Small pockets of humanity still exist though they are often tribe-like with simple rules passed down from generation to generation. Other creatures evolved their own cultures with their own set of rules, some more advanced than others. These rules have enabled a primitive form of survival in a high tech environment where stepping ever so slightly outside of the known and finding some new object could yield more understanding and prosperity, but most often brings destruction through ignorance.

    Effin Cool Minis has the distinct opportunity to bring a portion of this world from the imagination into a person's hands in the form of miniatures, but first we will need a bit of help from the fans of Sci-Fi that would like to see this made a reality!
