Mjölnir, the hammer of Thor. Aladdin’s lamp. Excalibur. You know they're out there.

Encyclopedia of Impossible Things 2-Jacob Atienza

They await discovery: Items of power, both legendary and forgotten, forged by the same mythology and fiction that spawned the recursions in which they lie. What would you do with a lich’s phylactery, the ring of Odin, a vorpal sword, the spellbook of Thoth, or the picture of Dorian Gray? What would Earth’s enemies do with these powerful, mythic items if they were brought into our world?

Encyclopedia of Impossible Things 10 GrzegorzPedrycz

The Encyclopedia of Impossible Things includes:

  • More than 400 new cyphers.
  • More than 250 new artifacts.
  • Scores of artifacts made famous by the mythology and fiction that gave life to their recursions, plus dozens of emergent artifacts that were created or evolved within the Shoals of Earth or the Strange itself.
  • Rules for personal recursions for player characters, including a sheet you can use to design and maintain your very own recursion.

Not a bad supplement. The Good: Plenty of new cyphers/artifacts to work with (particularly in the fantasy department). It will be liberally pilfered for my Numenera campaign. The Bad: Could use more in the way of "standard" it [...]

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.
