Three lengthy adventures wrapped in a thrilling frame story with a life-and-death twist!

It begins simply enough. Doesn’t it always? A nobleman’s estate needs tending in his absence. But what secrets lurk in its shadows? What deals has this man made with whispered voices in that darkness? And once such a discovery is made, can it be undone?

The Devil’s Spine wraps three distinct adventures in a thrilling, hard-driving frame story. The terrifying devil’s spine graft will claim a life, and the clock is ticking. Removing it will send the characters to the depths of the Mechanized Tomb, into a web of Viral Transmissions, and ultimately off the corebook map and into uncharted territory when they go Beyond the Maelstrom.

Run these adventures (in any order) as a mini-campaign, or ignore the frame story and use them as standalone adventures. They give gaming groups a taste of the fantastic Numenera setting and showcase the narrative structure of the game and its evocative world. The product also contains 16 full-color illustrations to show to players to illustrate important and evocative encounters. You'll want to get (and run) this adventure for the amazing art alone!

In addition to introducing new territories not covered in the Numenera corebook, The Devil’s Spine also offers new creatures, characters, and items to add to any campaign.

    Can this still be run with Numenera Discovery, or is it version-locked to the previous version?

    All of our Numenera titles are completely compatible with the current generation of the corebooks. You can absolutely enjoy The Devil's Spine with either the original corebook or Numenera Discovery.

    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.
