In Alternate Dimensions

In Alternate Dimensions

Watermarked PDF

The Ninth World can be a weird place, but those realms outside the natural world are even weirder. Navigating a reality of pure sound, a realm with only two dimensions, or a plane where time is inconstant, can be a serious challenge to Numenera characters—and an even greater challenge to Numenera GMs.

In Alternate Dimensions gives GMs three critical tools for running adventures in the many alternate realities PCs might accidentally—or purposefully—find themselves in:

  • 100 transdimensional GM intrusions. Great intrusions for use when traversing dimensions, arriving in new realities, using transdimensional items, and combatting transdimensional creatures. There are even GM intrusions that arise as unexpected repercussions for past transdimensional travel.
  • Using insight (first introduced in the Cypher System Rulebook) to help PCs come to terms with very weird alternate dimensions.
  • 100 options for parallel dimensions. In parallel dimensions, small historical divergences create a spectrum of alternate realities—some almost identical to the Ninth World the PCs call home, and others radically different.

This product is an ideal companion to Into the Outside.

Original electronic
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.
