Henri The Hurricane caused lots of mayhem for me as a DM this past weekend. It turned out to be a mild storm with an attitude. If one listened to the newscasters it was supposed to be the 'storm of the century'. And said newscasters almost but not quite seem geniunely diappointed when there wasn't any real destruction unlike Hurricane Sandy which barrelled through New England in 2012. We cancelled four game sessions this weekend . Fortunely my current B2 Keep of the Borderlands by Gary Gygax kept my mind busy.
B2 Keep on the Bordlerands set aboard the Warden or a simlar starship has gotten me thinking about another older campaign idea. Adventurer, Coqueror, King rpg's The Sinister Stone of Sakkara by Matthew Skail & , Alexander Macris works very well as a bridge gap between B2 & some of the weirdness aboard the Warden. A quisi Indo European adventure location with the advanced beastmen & their growing numbers aboard the Starship Warden works.
|AX3: Capital of the Borderlands could easily serve|
as the home base for the PC's.
The Warden has many influencs within its pages & its possible that the PC's might find one of the multiple houses on their travels across the campaign lands. This means that the PC's could stumble upon one of the many ruined homes scattered across the landscape of the Warden.
The Warden takes its weirdness on its own terms & this is something that extends a great deal to the Amazing Adventures version of the Starship Warden. Familiar & yet utterly alien in equal turns.
Make no mistake that 'Metamorphosis Alpha: The House On The Hill' is absolutely deadly unto itself. Stupid actions are going to equal dead PC's. Read through the entire adventure & don't convert this one on the fly. This is the voice of experince here. Read through, take notes, and convert monsters as needed.
These house could contain very valuable information about the actual state of the Warden. The predicament that the PC's find themselves in & the current state of the Warden. Could this mini adventure be linked into the cult of Chaos?! Its very possible as the PC's stumble across a group of cultists messsing with a bungalow aboard the Warden for valuable artifacts or possible weapons. The PC's coming into the middle of such a raid? And then dealing with the fall out from it. There's also the fact that currently there's a 9.95 the Metamorphosis Alpha Bundle which snags you Metamorphosis Alpha 1E, 3 Metamorphosis Alpha sourcebooks, and Death Ziggurat & Warden Adventures. Erok Tankard has far more details on this bundle here.
These resources would have to be converted over to Starship Warden rules as the DM & players see fit.
