Travel through the dystopian landscape of Escape from New York—and stop a nuclear bomb from detonating and destroying the city.

In 1988, the crime rate in the United States rose by more than 400 percent. New York City, the site of a massive nerve gas attack by the Soviet Union, is transformed into a maximum-security prison big enough to incarcerate every criminal in the country. Sealed off from the world by a 50-foot containment wall, it is a society in and of itself. Once you go in, you never come back.

As a final security measure, a nuclear bomb has been installed in the head of the Statue of Liberty to destroy the criminals in an emergency—its existence a closely guarded secret. Unfortunately, the revolutionary NLFA have obtained the president's nuclear arming device and are threatening to detonate the bomb unless their demands are met.

Your mission is to recover the arming device and codes before all of New York is reduced to radioactive rubble. Will you avoid the dangerous criminals, navigate the deadly pitfalls of the city, and rescue New York in time?

It's a good product, but there are metric ton of mistakes. The book was clearly written early in the game development cycle because NPCs sometimes have skills that don't exist in the final version of the core rulebook (Diplomacy), or certain things had a different name (a few NPC items have "AP" instead of "PV"). The pre-made characters also don't comport to the final published rules, with some weird "mistakes" on practically every character (unless those are deliberate, which they should at least state.) Trying to rebuild the pre-mades inside Foundry is very difficult as the Foundry system uses the published rules while this book deviates in places.

Thanks Christopher. You are very much correct about why it's a bit rough. It was a kind of, proof of concept, and the adventure itself (well, technically half the adventure and the npcs/pcs) were written while the core game was still in playtesting. I and our editors missed some of the technical issues that impacted the adventure and especially the generated heroes. (they have a slightly different starting array of ability scores)

We intend to do an update on the PDF to improve its accessibility for blind readers, and I'll try to get corrections in at that time.

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.
