100 Hooks and Rumours for Predation


This supplement has 100 different rumours that characters could hear in the Grevakc setting of Predation, perhaps when seeking other information. These can be used as background colour or as adventure hooks. They are similar to the Reading the Bones sections found in the setting book. Whether or not a specific rumour is true or not is up to the GameMaster.

Here are some sample results:

  • It's rumoured that the Butterflies are gearing up for a major attack against SATI, recruiting new members and those who would be willing to act on their behalf for the right price. It isn't known just what the Butterflies are planning to do, but it seems likely that a major assault against SATI would consist of an attack against one, or perhaps more, of their major strongholds, bunkers and cities.
  • Jose Blevins is reputed to be the greatest expert on time terrors, and maintains a lab in Addermire, though he is more often out and about looking for the storms. There's a rumour that Blevins was really excited by something last time he left Addermire; some think that perhaps he has finally come up with a way to guarantee he will be able to detect a time terror before it forms. This would be useful to everyone, not just Blevins.
  • Kelaino is considered to be SATI's main stronghold in Grevakc and is a city of dichotomies, with some inhabitants being rich with access to advanced technologies and others being poor and making door with more primitive ones. This situation is apparently getting worse and trouble is increasingly erupting as a result. The poorer sections of the city are coming off badly in any confrontations, because the technology owned by the richer inhabitants is able to easily crush them.
  • Kelaino is partially enclosed within its builtbone wall, a wall that is made from a mixture of bones, concrete and metal. The wall grows slowly every year, entwining a little more and becoming stronger. Recently, though, the wall has been growing at a faster rate than usual, suggesting that there's a potential threat that the city's rulers, perhaps SATI itself, have decided they need to defend against.
  • Many cyberdrones still remain in use, thanks to the self-healing and -learning capabilities of the flying robots, as well as careful maintenance. There's a rumour that, if anything, the number of cyberdrones seems to be gradually increasing. That would suggest that someone in Grevakc is managing to create new ones, something that was believed beyond the currently technological and manufacturing base. Unless a large cache has recently been discovered in a SATI bunker.

One page is the front cover and one the front matter.

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.
