The World Below Ashcan Edition

Selected Option:

The World Below provides. But you must dig. You must explore. You must map. You must build. You must defend. 

The World Below provides, but only to the worthy. 

The unworthy fall, consumed by bugs, lava, acidic fog, the vagaries of Kaos, and the World Below’s convulsing tunnels.

The World Below is your home, your prison, and your alien world, containing terrible threats and wondrous discoveries.

The World Below Ashcan Edition is your introduction to The World Below.

The World Below Ashcan Edition includes:

  • A new game of subterranean fantasy, exploration and discovery, survival and horror, from Onyx Path Publishing.
  • Everything you need to get started, from major setting beats to playable characters and the Storypath Ultra rule system.
  • Powers, antagonists, and a complete scenario to get your game started immediately.
  • A major teaser of what's to come in the full version of The World Below.

This is a well constructed campaign setting prefaced by a story in which the population is driven underground where they are not masters of their domain. This setup allows the GM some flexibility to fill in the gaps, maybe adopting a D&D approach, [...]

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.
