Strange Creatures of the Ninth World


The Strange and The Strange Bestiary introduce scores of creatures compatible with Numenera, many of which look and seem as if they stepped right out of the Ninth World! Using creatures from The Strange in your Numenera campaign is super-easy--the rules require almost no conversion work.


Strange Creatures of the Ninth World gives you advice on interpreting the minor differences in creature listings between the two games, along with alternative, Ninth-World-specific backgrounds for about 80 creatures from The Strange Bestiary.

This is a very cool product that features "strange" creatures for the Numenera setting. Although this is not a huge product, it is still a good one and it is worth a download. [...]

The readability and presentation were great, and as usual MCG provides helpful guidance to GMs. The advice in here will be very useful to GMs having trouble converting creatures from The Strange to Numenera on their own. The kicker is, it's free! super [...]

Great free content. To the guy below who gave this one star because of his own printer problems... Really dude? [...]

I really like the quality and guidance it has, even if that part is quite short. All the biomechanical things from Ruk and place like it mix really well with the basic tone of Numenera. [...]

I can't say as I could not get it to print. It does have interesting images [...]

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.
