Description Edit | History

Shape shifters, those beings of such mercurial nature that their very bodies are not static, appear throughout literary history. The characters range from the fantastic -- super heroes who can stretch, shrink, grow to enormous size or change their very appearance to the terrifying -- werewolves terrifying the countryside during the full moon, Dr Jekyll's transformation to Mr Hyde or the alien "others" who have assumed the form of your loved ones.

Ultimate Metamorph gives you all the tools you need for creating and running these form-changing characters. Included in the book are new powers, advantages, limitations, power tricks and plot hooks. Several example characters are also presented.

--user description

From the Publisher's Website:

TIME FOR A CHANGE

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!
