Heya, Takley here

I am planning on running Metamorphosis alpha again in the inn, this time ill post all the mutations in a post and full instructions for creation

Backstory-You are a student at the school of gifted individuals or SCHOGI for short, you are on an assignment to the 2nd level to find out what happened in the village of Targran that it stopped communication though you are not sure why they were communicating with the school. The school is mostly humanoid with a quarter of them being Fae-short winged humanoids that size in about 2'2/2'1 and, if they were born with thermokinesis, are very strong in that area.

The school was made to help you develop your abilites to use them in a way thar was not thought possible or just plain better than training on your own would achive(think X-men and Xaviers school or a school full of misfits in general)

types of beings-Fae(humanoid), humanoid in general(human mutants) and pure mutants(animals, plants; will be found later on and join the group as a petof sort or if approved(and small enough) can be on the grounds already)-forgot one, and pure human(rare in the school and the area but ya never know)

3-6 players

Just thought of something

once I get my homework done this week, I will work on describing the powers briefly to avoid confusion and to be able to allowthe players to check.

shoulda done it when I wrote them down first though.

Geography Map ???

Where is this taking place, as all that has been posted is the name of the school and a village ?????

A Map would be helpful or at least a description of the surrounding country, planet and time frame for this adventure setting!

This would be extremely helpful and necessary for developing the background story for our character!

Thank You
