Explore a world of mystery and danger, a world a billion years in the future. A world defined by the detritus of bygone eras, when humanity spoke to the stars, reengineered their physical bodies, mastered form and essence, and ultimately disappeared or transcended. These ancients left behind the numenera—bits of their civilizations inscrutable to the people of the Ninth World. Items and places of power and wonder. Explore this world, find and master the numemera, and build a better future!
Flight of the Seraph
The city of Dahlinger will be destroyed in a matter of days when an immense entity known as a Starwing Seraph descends from the heavens. The Seraph has come to Dahlinger many times in the past, but was always fought off by the giant beast that protected the city. With that beast now dead, it falls to you to follow the notes of legendary adventurers to find the parts needed to summon a new colossal defender before the Seraph returns and crushes the city to dust.
Your reputation as experienced explorers and salvagers has led a pair of researchers and inventors to come to you to collect the bulk quantity of protomatter needed for their latest project.
The good news: they know exactly where you can find a large container of the near mystical building material, and can provide you tools to help reach it. The bad news: this container is located within the Convoy of the Sky God; a series of ancient interdimensional vehicles that fly and periodically teleport through the skies of the Ninth World.
Even knowing exactly where the Convoy is going to be; reaching the ancient device, exploring its secrets, and safely bringing a large canister of highly unstable material to the ground will be no easy task.
Escape from the Jade Colossus
Five years ago, a hidden prior-world installation woke up after aeons of somnolence. The night of its awakening, the land screamed and shuddered.
After the tremors subsided and the day crept back,something enormous was revealed: a massive new structure, many kilometres in diameter, had burst up through the ground. It had been expelled to the world’s surface—or did it move under its own power?
A dangerous contagion in Ballarad has led the PCs into the Jade Colossus, where the healer Gerob knows of key ingredients to a cure. But when a collapse blocks their escape route, can the players find their way out of the massive structure? And when Gerob becomes more a liability than an ally, is there any hope of bringing the cure to the stricken city?
