Sight Unseen


Be careful what you look for...

Sight Unseen is an investigative horror supplement for the Cypher System Rulebook by Monte Cook Games.  It's the perfect starting place for kicking off your delve into modern horror and mystery, or an incredibly satisfying way of pushing an existing campaign off the rails.  Included you'll find:

  • 3 Foci for conspiracy hunting investigators: Interrogates, Seeks the Truth, and Wields Science.
  • 5 Descriptors for those haunted by strange events: Dangerous, Intimidating, Nervous, Prescient, and Vengeful.
  • 27 printable subtle Cyphers to add to your collection.

This book is our first attempt at publishing a Cypher System supplement in landscape format, for easy use on tablets and wide-screen monitors.  It's easy to read, elegant, and provides just the start for adventures into the dark.  

And we're just getting started!  Soon to come:

  • ...It Was Aliens.  Just when you thought the conspiracy couldn't go any higher.
  • Dark Monstrocities.  Creatures to haunt your nightmares.  Ways to fight back.
  • Impending Madness.  Cyclopean horrors from beyond our understanding.
All three are intended to work together with Sight Unseen, allowing your group to stumble onto terrible things they really, really shouldn't have.

Requires the Cypher System Rulebook from Monte Cook Games.

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.
