This City From Above

Suggested Price $2.00

This city is a place of connection, of fractious discourse, of potential.

Each day a million different events may occur; some which go unnoticed and others that change the face of this place completely.

Sometimes the smallest of moments can have the greatest impact.

This City From Above is a GMless Hexmapping game about the life of a City.

Is there a particular part of the rules you're struggling to envisage?
Generally, once you've set up the river, factions and landmarks, it's a cycle of scenes where you follow the "generate scene" with a prompt > act out the scene (use the adjusting focus ideas if you're struggling to frame them, start at Top Down to describe the scene, then zoom in until you get to individuals at 1st Person level) > work out what the impact of the scene will be and how long that impact will take to take effect, then rationalise this as a group- if you had a scene that revolved around a valuable deal, where two factions worked out a transaction and the impact resulted in the creation of up to 2 new unities or schisms over 10 years, you might decide that the deal you put together in the scene led to a new business venture between the two factions that allies them (you could even add in a schism that developed as a result of this unity, adding further tension in the city).

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.
