The essential gamemaster’s companion for adventure building in the weird and wondrous Ninth World

Mysterious, powerful, and usually dangerous, the vast ruins of the prior worlds contain secrets and marvels beyond imagining. Explore one such gigantic ruin—the Jade Colossus—in detail. Or create your own, using the Numenera Ruin Mapping Engine to create ancient sites large or small, with all the wonder and weirdness you expect in the Ninth World setting.

Run an entire campaign around the Jade Colossus, use the site for one or a handful of adventures in your existing campaign, or use this book to create dozens of other prior-world sites, building an amazing campaign filled with imagination and awe-inspiring adventure.

This book includes:

  • The Jade Colossus, a massive prior-world site that emerged recently from the earth. Brave the Yovok Hive, navigate Wranna’s Way, or seek the Canticle at the heart of the Red Labyrinth.
  • Ballarad, a prosperous but isolated city partially uprooted by the Colossus. Explore the Mirror Fortress, trade at the Ceaseless Market, or seek information at the Church of the Whisper.
  • The Numenera Ruin Mapping Engine, a robust system for generating maps and content for prior-world sites. Expand the uncharted areas in published adventures, make the Jade Colossus even bigger, or create entire new prior world ruins for your campaign, with all the mystery and weirdness of the Ninth World baked right in!
  • New character options, including new foci and new organizations, as well as new creatures to encounter.
  • Great advice for building new campaigns that make the most of the weird Ninth World setting, as well as for integrating the sites in this book into your ongoing campaign.

Explore a mysterious ruin of the prior worlds—or create an infinite supply of mysterious and wondrous ancient sites for your campaign.

Would it be possible to add unmarked maps of the Colossus, Ballarad and perhaps the location within the colossus to this? I would like to give my players at least a map of the city, without revealing all places.

Monte Cook Games generally offers a substantial preview of their main products as a separate file in the DTRPG Store. Look up Jade Colossus free preview in their products. :)

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.
