Inverse World Accelerated

Selected Option:

The Inverse World – so named by outsiders, who came from beyond the world’s crust. Inside, they found a massive, windy void, with a glowing star shining in the center. A ring of islands orbits this star, and far above lies a ceiling of stone. The Inverse World is on the inside of a planet, and could even be inside of an already existing campaign world, if you dig deep enough.

The locals call it a different name, however: Invells. Invells is a mystical place, where an imprisoned god casts light and rain up to the top of the world, and then it all drains back down to the center. The great god Sola is trapped in the center of Invells, a massive burning star that created the light and rain from which all life in Invells was formed. Well, most life.

Invells is a bizarre world, filled with all manner of flying fish, strange monsters, wondrous machinery, and Sola’s children, the three spirit-blessed races. Airships, great chains, and winged angels bridge the open gaps between the floating islands. Shanty towns of wood and iron cling to the top of the world. Great cities of light and gold are hidden within the sea of clouds surrounding Sola’s cage, a molten sea of gold with a god trapped inside. There is much to see, and all of it is just out of reach.

Inverse World Accelerated is a supplement for the Fate Accelerated Edition tabletop roleplaying game, set in Invells, a wholly different sort of fantasy world. Inverse World is built around the idea of making fantasy fantastic again, by introducing a world unlike any other.

This book includes everything you need to play Fate Accelerated Edition - no other books required! It also includes information on the various types of explorers and people found in Invells, along with detailed and highly customizable character creation options. Inverse World Accelerated introduces the Inverting mechanic, allowing you to make the most out of bad rolls, and features a unique method of character advancement built around Discoveries - you improve by learning more about the world around you and adapting to what you've discovered.

This book also introduces the new setting of Invells, but it does so with an aura of mystery and a bit of strangeness – nothing about Invells is locked in place except what the players say about it. Rather than list solid facts about anywhere, Invells is full of Rumors, and you play to find out what exactly is true.

The original Inverse World DW book was perhaps my favorite supplement for that game, and I am glad to see that it made the transition to the FAE system unscathed. The setting is one of the most interesting I've seen in a long time, bringing in inspirat [...]

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.
