Description Edit | History

A space opera role playing game. Uses a 16 sided "doubling die" to generate results, along with a standard d6, d8, and d10.

From the back of the box:

"The MetaScape Roleplaying System awaits, with the potential to unlock the ultimate power within! This innovative new roleplaying game incorporates unique die mechanics, an exciting super-science setting, and rules geared toward playability and instant, ad-lib gaming."

Inside the large box (3.75" deep!) are a Rule book, Setting guide, Equipment manual, Character manual, and an adventure titled "Shakna - Assault on the Hive." The box also came with six metal miniatures.
