The Unseen World: Urban Fantasy Genesys


Welcome, my friends, to the Unseen World. Delve into a world where every monster, myth, and legend is real, where gods still walk among men and mortals live with no knowledge of the supernatural world all around them. As you seek to gain power to protect yourself from the darkness and the monsters, beware: it can be easy to lose yourself to that darkness and become a monster yourself.

The Unseen World contains everything you need for a wide variety of urban fantasy adventures! Whether you are the chosen one or a wizard detective or anything in-between, the Unseen World is your source for the supernatural. The Unseen World adds over a dozen unique archetypes, dozens of unique adversaries, a whole host of unique factions, and an entire expansive new urban fantasy world to explore. The setting includes the unique Agency mechanic as your characters struggle to maintain their humanity, my original Wealth rules, the unique Ritual magic skill, and rules for Plot-Device-Level Adversaries. Also includes a fully-fleshed out example city in the form of Las Vegas, the City of Sin, and rules for building your own cities and campaigns in the Unseen World.

The archaic special on weapons doesn't seem to have any rules explaining what that does? As a corollary, archaic armor seems weirdly better than modern armor? Chainmail is cheaper and more common than a flak vest, in exchange for a setback to stealth. Mechanically I guess that works, but I wanted to check if that was working as intended?

Rings of Protection also don't seem to have any mechanical effect, despite supposedly helping with defense?

I do like Energy Drinks and Painkillers. The former as a healing item for strain was always something I thought was oddly missing and is a clever solution, and Painkillers wearing off in two hours fixes an issue I've had with them being strong enough to make standard first aid frequently irrelevant.

The archaic special on weapons is there to differentiate them from modern weapons in terms of Craftsmanship, as certain craftsmanships can only be applied to archaic weapons and armor.
I will look over the armor and think about possibly making changes based on what you’ve said.
The Rings of Protection bit was an editing mistake, thanks for pointing that out. I will be changing that today or tomorrow, whenever I have the time. Lesser rings add +1 melee & ranged defense, greater add +2.
And yeah, the energy drinks & painkillers have worked really well in our campaigns. Making them only a temporary fix really makes the world feel more real and dangerous.

Rule System(s)
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.
