IT DARKENS THE SKY

A disk the size of a modern metropolis hovers over the Ninth World, darkening the sky and the lives of those below it. What secrets lie within this mysterious artifact of the prior worlds? What power keeps it above the world, a flying shin in the night? Questions like these plague those who have seen this remnant of the old civilizations of Earth. Some are even inspired to invent or find some way to join the socalled Skyscrape up in the heavens and bring its treasures back down.

EXPLORATIONS: THE SKYSCRAPE is a six part adventure series for Numenera, detailing a flying metropolis full of prior world wonders. It is the second in our Explorations series: a set of adventure supplements leveraging Numenera’s unique Discovery system for experience to create excitingly exploration-based game sessions.

It provides the following:

  • A six part adventure, exploring the city, its trap-filled underground, and the "shimmering spire" that forms the pinnacle of the ancient metropolis' majesty.
  • Three new Descriptors for scavengers:  Erudite, Impervious, and Voracious.
  • Three new Foci for heroes who aim to learn the secrets of the ancients:  Deciphers Signs and Symbols, Removes Barriers, and Repairs Ancient Devices.
  • New loot customized for adventures in the Skyscrape:  100 new Oddities, 5 Artifacts, and 36 Cyphers (in an easy print-and-cut format).

Review of THE SKYSCRAPE over at Origins of a Dark God:

"The Skyscape is a great deal for $3.  RCG packs a lot into their books."

Another note: DrivethruRPG's watermarking process on the pdf's seems to have been causing issues for some customers, so we've disabled watermarking on all our digital products. We'll likely be doing this for the foreseeable future, as we don't really mind if people "pirate" our supplements anyway. Art belongs to society.

Thank you! I have vision problems and sometimes need audio assistance. The watermark messes with my pdf's auto-reader.

Good to know! Yet another reason not to use the option.

Just to let everyone know, we've updated the file for this so that it's not quite so big. Hopefully the new file will be a little more manageable, especially for tablet users.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
