A Breath of Fresh Air


Descent into a mysterious crack in the ground and survive in an alien world beneath! This Cypher System Adventure comes from the author of "The Bridges we Burn – a Numenera Adventure” and is designed for Tier 2 characters. It takes about 3-5 hours to complete and can be easily adapted for any of the official Cypher System settings.

Discover an ancient, mysterious and gigantic machine, battle vicious foes and save-or doom an entire species. As always, the choices – and the consequences – are yours to live with.

Those who dared the Rift (and managed to tell about it) share:

“What happens below, stays below”

“Wow, this adventure was realllly weird. So I guess it was perfect for the game!”

“We… killed them all, didn’t we? And for what?” *another PC toys with a powerful artefact*


Requires the Cypher System Rulebook from Monte Cook Games.

The table erupts as our collective minds get blown to pieces. I end the session. Calaval’s eyes, what a night! When dice meet the narrative, peak RPG experience happens. It was so sublime that I dreamt about the session that night [...]

I discovered this adventure via a review shared in a Numenera/Cypher System community. The many positive reviews it was receiving convinced me to take a look. It proved to be a great adventure! While I could see this adventure being adapted to a [...]

I've talked before about the differences between strategic and narrative role-playing games (RPGs). Some systems lend themselves more to one than the other. Sometimes it comes down to the adventure being played. There are adventures written to b [...]

I was in the final playtesting group. This is a spine-chilling, attention-grabbing and mystery-ridden adventure! A definite must - but please be warned that you will never look at mushrooms in the same way... [...]

This one-off adventure is easy to port in about any sci-fi world (or even fantasy-sci-fi world), but its feel is perfect for the Ninth World. It is an underground story linked to a lost civilization, a huge, ancient juggernout used for a task not conte [...]

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.
