SURVIVAL OF THE CUNNING

Huddled in their makeshift cities, cobbled together from the expended glory of earlier civilizations, the people of the Ninth World are desperate.  Survival is everything in these times and this makes for a society with a distinctly dirty underbelly.

In a world without a common sense of law or even decency, what qualifies as crime?  Wits Alone is a guide to the seedy side of Numenera.  We all know it’s there, but most of us would prefer our heroes clean and unspoiled by the grey areas of morality such a dangerous world would make.  This supplement is for those who are willing to stare into the dark and see who stares back.

This book provides suggestions for criminal and law-bringer campaigns, numerous player options for characters walking on the wrong side of the tracks, a plethora of new Cyphers and Artifacts, and a look at the dark side of the city of Uxphon.  It even takes a good hard look at black markets and provides guidance for building your stories around their strange economies of trust and power.

Wits Alone is the only way to survive in a world without civilization.

Check out this review by James Walls:

"Wits Alone is written for the Numenera Game Master looking to introduce criminal elements into their campaigns.  The resources within this book give the GM the option to introduce anything from a light touch of a city’s seedy underworld, to a full-fledged campaign with all of the complexity of a procedural crime drama.  It truly is the GM’s choice what they want to pick and pluck from Wits Alone, and it’s all there."  http://ilive4crits.blogspot.com/2014/11/review-wits-alone-numenera-sourcebook.html?spref=fb

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.
