This is the full version of Predation. Check out the free preview.

A little sci-fi. A little post-apocalypse. A whole lot of dinosaurs.

Welcome to the Cretaceous. Our ancestors won’t climb down from the trees for another 66 million years, but here we are now. Time travel seemed like a good idea. Exploring the ancient world. Building. Creating an entire society here in the jungles of our primordial Earth. Until those SATI guys messed it all up.

We’ve got gear. We’ve got guns. We’ve even bioengineered a few dinos to our liking. And that’s good, because we’ll need it all to survive. History says there’s an asteroid headed our way, and there’s no one left alive who knows how to get back to the future.

This book includes:

  • A complete, ready-to-play science-fiction game world for the Cypher System, with a detailed history, scores of fascinating locations, new gear and technologies, and a variety of factions and conflicts to drive your story.
  • More than 20 new creatures and NPC types, from the snuggly nerezza to the unpredictable lab-grown supersauri. Encounter teslasaurs, cyberdrones, and genetically engineered spiders, plus dinosaurs of all descriptions.
  • New character types and abilities. Be a Volcanic Karn who Self-Evolves, an Empirical Tec who Plays God, or perhaps a Daring Pteryx Who Walks with Dinosaurs.
  • Rules for dinosaur companions. Choose a ceratopsian, pterosaur, early mammal, ornithomimid—even a raptor or tyrannosaur. You’ll want the help and companionship as you explore the dangerous wilds of Cretaceous Grevakc!

Predation is a complete campaign setting for the Cypher System. You need the Cypher System Rulebook to play Predation.

Reminds me of the old 2000ad story, Flesh.

How much "fluff" is there in the book? I would be purchasing it merely to read the setting.

- 10 pages for the setting overview
- 30+ pages on one continent and 5 on the other
- 5 pages on organizations
Maybe you can also count in the 15-page material on rules of dinosaur companion and another 20 pages for bestiary?

I "only" have the physical book and the size of the map(s) is a joke. Any Idea on where to download/buy the map without having to purchase the whole PDF.

It says "You need the Cypher System Rulebook to play Predation." Is having Numenera good enough? or is there something specific to the core book that this game needs?

Has to be Cypher system. This book refers to the Explorer and Speaker Types, which are not in Numenera Core. Also, while Numenera Character Options 2 does have those types, it's abilities are different. Lastly, the book lists several appropriate Foci for the setting, most of which are not in Numenera.

This seems a lot like Julian May's Pleistocene Era books, which is cool.

The game is vaguely like the TV series TERRA NOVA which ran for one season. Motivated by overpopulation, a 22nd-century civilization sends people back to found a colony in Earth's prehistory 85 million years ago. But the contact with the colony has not been broken. They contend with dinosaurs too, and their technology is futuristic but not as much as in PREDATION.

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.
