  • The greatest work of the prior worlds: the Engine of the Gods!

    Few who dwell on the Ninth World even know of the greatest achievement of the ancients, for it rests—imperceptibly, despite its vast size—on the very edge of the Sun itself. What horrific danger—what incredible threat, to the Sun and our world—compelled them to such an audacious creation? Has that threat been ended? Or do the beings that dwell upon the Engine (for yes, it is home to many strange creatures) struggle now in vain, unaware that their mission no longer protects them—or us—from cataclysm on a scale that dwarfs even the audacity of the prior worlds’ most staggering work?

    Features:

    A massive new location for Numenera players to explore. Many areas are highly detailed, plus a mapping engine makes it easy to generate additional adventures on this continent-sized ruin.

    New cyphers, artifacts, and creatures, plus augmechs—machines that can be virtually piloted anywhere—make this an appealing book for all Numenera and Cypher System players.

    Includes multiple adventures.

  • Over a billion years into the Earth’s future, great civilizations have risen and fallen, each attaining wonders beyond our wildest dreams and furthest imaginings. The remnants of these civilizations shaped the Ninth World into a beautiful but weird place of both wonder and danger.

    You have explored ruins of the ancient past and found the magic there called the numenera. You have wandered the Steadfast and the Beyond, to discover cities and peoples you never knew existed. You have dived the ocean deeps and found that there, too, lie wonders of the past. Perhaps you have even followed in the footsteps of the prior worlds and voyaged to the stars, or beyond.

    Liminal Shore contains:

    • An entirely new, previously unexplored region of the Ninth World, unlike anywhere you’ve ever been.
    • Scores of new cyphers, artifacts, and creatures, all flavored by the unique nature of the Liminal Shore.
    • Several new sapient species, including three suitable as PCs. Play a winged caterpillar-like creel, a shelled wholkin, or a mysterious, fungoid spirant.
    • Two complete adventures. “Unusual Vitality” pulls unwitting characters into the Liminal Shore, making it a perfect introduction to the new setting; “Pieces of My Heart” helps them explore and understand this strange new land.

  • They say there have been eight worlds before ours. Eight times the people of this planet built civilizations we can’t even imagine now. They spoke to the stars, reshaped the creatures of the world, and mastered form and essence. They built cities and machines that have since crumbled to dust, leaving only their barest remnants.

    This is the Ninth World. The people of the prior worlds are gone—scattered, disappeared, or transcended. But traces of their works remain, containing some germ of their original function. To the ignorant, these workings of the ancients are magic. But the wise know differently. . . .

    Beneath the Monolith brings the critically acclaimed setting of Numenera to 5e. Explore the ruins of incomprehensible civilizations. Discover ancient technologies so advanced that most people think they’re magic. Encounter creatures weird, fierce, and dangerous. Open doors to new worlds and alternate dimensions. And, perhaps, unlock some of the mysteries of the prior worlds.

  • Most Ninth Worlders know the datasphere only as the source of mysterious glimmers—those odd, unbidden flashes of knowledge and insight that, rarely, embed themselves within the mind. Some who study the numenera call it a network built by the ancients to surround the world with their knowledge. Some Aeon Priests say it is in fact many such networks that sometimes, but not always, intersect.

    And then there are those who have explored it. They tell stories of a vast metaspace that one can actually enter, to emerge in wholly other places—and along the way discover treasures and dangers unique to a bizarre realm unconstrained by the laws of nature.

    Some of these sages and adventurers believe its exploration offers the greatest key to unlocking the secrets of the prior worlds. Are they right? Only one thing is certain: the datasphere offers amazing knowledge to be learned, rich treasures to be discovered, and all-new challenges to be overcome.

    Voices of the Datasphere contains:

    -An entirely new mode of play, in which characters translate into the virtual metaspace of the datasphere and become avatars of themselves in a bizarre and timeless realm. Explore the datasphere itself, or use it to travel vast distances across the Ninth World.

    -Nine sample nodes—encounter spaces within the datasphere.

    -Numerous secrets of the prior worlds, such as the likely purpose of the Clock of Kala, long locked away within the knowledge vaults of the datasphere.

    -New cyphers, artifacts, vehicles, and creatures.

    -Two complete adventures that take you into the datasphere!

  • Calaval’s Parable of the Spider holds this lesson: We can no more comprehend the remnants of the prior worlds than a spider can comprehend the cathedral in which it happens to have built its web. Just as our works are beyond the understanding—or even complete perception—of the spider, we cannot understand or even fully perceive the works of the ancients. Calaval was, of course, the first Amber Pope, the founder of the Order of Truth, and the first leader of the Aeon Priests. How well do you understand them?

    Explore the Order of Truth. Learn its many secrets. Work with the Aeon Priests, discover how they can optimize your character’s abilities and equipment, or even join the Order as they seek to bring the wonders of the prior worlds into the Ninth World.

Most of the parts also work well as standalone adventures, providing a dozen full-sized adventures the GM can insert into any ongoing campaign.

  • For countless millennia the great civilizations of the prior worlds ruled this Earth. They built cities and machines of unimaginable grandeur and scale. They reshaped the very earth, and cast away from it to the planets, the stars, and even realms outside our reality. Their works were beyond number and beyond wonder. But now they are gone.
