Loot the Cretaceous for your Numenera or The Strange game!

Looking for an incredible new recursion for your game of The Strange? Hoping to introduce genetically engineered, cybernetic-enhanced dinosaurs into your Numenera campaign? Or maybe you just want to port some new cyphers, character options, and creatures into your next adventure.

Predation uses the Cypher System—the same “game engine” that underlies both Numenera and The Strange. Although the settings differ, they share fundamental mechanics: task difficulties are rated from 1 to 10; characters use Effort, skills, and assets to reduce that difficulty; and a d20 is rolled to determine success or failure. Characters are described by a single sentence: “I am an adjective noun who verbs.” And although the types, creatures, cyphers, and many descriptors and foci differ from game to game, the form in which they are presented, and the way they fit into the game as a whole, remains the same.

The Way of the Dinosaur lets you take full advantage of these commonalities, giving you all the tools you need to lift material from Predation and drop it seamlessly into Numenera or The Strange.

I would love new stats for companions from other worlds. I will not fault you for not including any here, but I would happily buy a separate glimmer that covered such.

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.
