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

Few who dwell in the Ninth World know of the greatest achievement of the ancients, for it rests—imperceptibly, despite its vast size—on the very edge of the sun itself. The prior worlds were mighty beyond conception, but even for them, this Engine is a work of staggering proportion. What incredible threat to the sun, our world, and all the bodies of our solar system compelled them to such an audacious feat? Has that threat been ended?

Or do the beings that dwell in 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 a cataclysm on a scale that dwarfs even the boldness of the prior worlds’ most ambitious work?

Edge of the Sun details a massive new location for Numenera characters to explore: the Engine of the Gods. Fiercely hostile to human life, it can nevertheless be visited physically or virtually, where its many secrets—and dangers—await discovery.

This book contains:

  • A host of new creatures suited to life on and in the Engine of the Gods.
  • Dozens of new cyphers and artifacts, plus augmechs—strange vehicles that can be piloted remotely to explore the Engine or used to reach other locations in the Ninth World or across the solar system.
  • A map generator that lets you easily create infinite regions within the planet-sized Engine of the Gods.
  • Two complete adventures. “Waking the Mega” introduces augmechs, as the PCs discover, revive, and ultimately pilot one against a titanic threat. “The Sun Doth Move” is a lengthy adventure with world-shattering consequences that can make an excellent capstone to your explorations of the Engine of the Gods—or to an entire Numenera campaign!

This is Bruce Cordell at the top of his game. Astounding creativity and ideas abound through out this. This is definitely a GM's book and not a player's. Money very well spent.

Got this one from Kickstarter so I can't review as a purchaser. A suitably epic setting for an apocalypse averting adventure. Numenera already has some wild places to go to challenge high tier characters (thinking specifically of "Into the Void" and "Into the Outside"), but this one has really high stakes if you are willing to accept it into your campaign's canon. This one is for the GMs with big dreams of multi-year campaigns ending in a massive showstopper. Players: no new descriptors or foci, and a lot is best left unspoiled. GMs: This is for when void voyages and multiversal excursions are no longer not enough to keep your PCs busy.

Format
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.
