The Floor Is Monsters - Rulebook and Setting (77 pages)

Suggested Price $0.00

The Floor is Monsters is a customizable post-apocalyptic setting in a Skyscraper city with monsters overwhelming the ground below. How long these settlements have existed or who first built them is a distant and irrelevant mystery, as they now offer a single purpose: the only refuge above the monstrous forest floor. An ever-growing, corrupting forest with bizarre magical effects, dubbed the Arbor Arcana, seeps up the rubbled buildings constantly creeping towards the top of these skyscraper settlements. Lower levels are continuously consumed, so much so that by now the distance to the ground floor in all directions is impossible to discern among miles of dense wood across the horizon. Worse still, magical radiation and odd effects contort denizens low enough to the rising vines into magical mutants, and few of any settlement can claim they know of anyone who has touched the forest floor itself and returned unscathed.

      Sky bridges, ziplines, platforms, and pulleys make life as manageable as it could be - but confinement comes with incredible difficulty. Settlements are vertically stratified, with those on the highest levels hoarding resources and long-lost technology while those who cannot afford to move up succumb to the magical rising vines, becoming The Overgrown. Over centuries, confinement to vertical concrete prisons has eroded the history and lore of the world, replacing them twisting vines, gnarled roots, and a constant struggle to survive. The only lore remaining passes through the vertical levels in monster rumors and stories of relics lost beneath the trees.

     The impetus to find a better life increases daily, especially for those in The Overgrown, scorned for their mutations and magical anomalies. Bleakness takes many forms, whether its perpetual struggle or the slowly eroding surroundings. As the vines climbed higher and the forest expanded upwards, settlements one by one collapsed from the pressure of the encroaching woods. Hope is often as mysterious as the woods below, with old relics in the skyline or the infrequent contact with another vertical settlement proving as its only sustaining force. Far off in the horizon, old defunct satellites dot the top of the skyline, dominating rumors of hope. They point towards Bastion; an orbiting moon base of unknown origin that has taken on a role of celestial inspiration for those below that they might find a similar refuge above the wastes.

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.
