Ten amazing, super-low-prep adventures you can start running minutes from now!

A trip to the moon—and the very, very ancient past. A stolen twin. The approach of a starwing seraph that spells doom for an entire city. An enormous underground ruin where humans and abhumans vie with one another, intelligent fungi—and a deadly predator. Ten complete adventures to challenge and intrigue your Numenera gaming group, full of all the mystery, awe, and danger you expect from your journeys through the Ninth World.

And best of all: they’re Instant Adventures, presented in MCG’s unique and innovative format that requires virtually no preparation. Simply pick up this book, choose an adventure, and be playing in ten minutes or less. There are even pregenerated characters included, so you can get started on an impromptu game in about the same time it takes to set up a board game.

You can easily insert these adventures into your ongoing campaign, string them together for weeks and weeks of gaming, or run them as one-shots when the mood for an RPG strikes, but nobody has prepped a game.

Explorer’s Keys includes:

  • Ten complete weird and wondrous adventures, with maps, NPCs, and all the details you expect.
  • An innovative format that lets the GM run a full-length game session with just a few minutes prep time.
  • A Ninth World heist, journeys in time and space, exploring dangerous ruins, encountering weird creatures, and much, much more.
  • Great advice on running adventures with little or no prep.
  • Nineteen beautiful, full-color Show ’Em illustrations, to reveal to players during the adventures.
  • Six pregenerated characters, ready to play if you need them.
  • A rules cheat sheet to make things run even more smoothly.

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.
