The Atlas of the Latter Earth

Selected Option:
Hardcover, Standard Color Book
PDF + Hardcover, Standard Color Book

First glimpsed in the pages of the Worlds Without Number RPG, an unfathomably far-future world of decadent sorcery and daring blades is now revealed in the Atlas of the Latter Earth. More than two hundred pages of fact and surmise are packed into this gazetteer, a full setting guide trimmed with additional game content for Worlds Without Number and a helping of the the system-neutral GM tools that so many love. While the book can be used whole as a premade campaign setting, it's also designed to be stripped down into individual countries and regions that can be looted for your own home game.

Within these pages, you'll find...

  • The grim history of the present epoch of the Latter Earth's western hemisphere, from the dim chaos of the First Age to the trials of the current day.
  • More than three dozen major lands and nations of the Latter Earth, all built for playability and usefulness to a busy GM.
  • New classes for Worlds Without Number, including the compelling Bard, sinister Accursed, fearsome Mageslayer, and the Wise found in lands of lesser magic.
  • A bestiary containing scores of terrible foes and monstrous Blighted for your heroes to face and foil.
  • New optional rules for low- and no-magic campaigns, grave wounds, modified spellcasting, and primitive firearms suitable for early modern settings.
  • Additional Foci to grant new powers and arts to budding heroes.
  • System-neutral "character tags" for molding NPC motivations and backstories, the better to fuel their role in your newly-minted adventures.
  • Seagoing rules for naval travel, sea combat, and shipbuilding.
  • JPEG map files for the twenty-six maps included in the book, for you to edit or modify for your own personal use.
  • And, of course, EPUB and MOBI files included with all PDFs, for easier phone and tablet reading.

So dare the unknown, bold reader. The secrets of the savage future lie within this tome, awaiting a hand daring enough to wield them. Pillage its lore for your own game, and make yourself the master of an age yet to come!

This is a perfect companion to WwoN. I can even use it with SwoN or other RPGs. My bookshelf has hard copies for all 3, now! Awesome, Kevin.

Are we going to get a premium color version?

There are no plans for that, no. The price difference is very substantial, I don't find the quality difference to be worth minding a separate SKU.

Is this premium hardcover or POD? I have the premium issue of the core book and it is really great.

Got an email saying this was on sale just for today, but I see nothing is on sale, what's the deal?

Maybe the sale is the free PDF with hardcover purchase?

Take a closer read of the email and it says in the second sentence that this book, is for Worlds Without Number, which is now on sale for today only. The book in question is this one -

That must be it, although it's easy to misinterpret the email for sure! That's why I'm here after all, I also thought this book was on sale lol. Oh well!

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.
