Description:

Explore a sprawling fantasy city, presented in amazing detail and steeped in lore and atmosphere. Delve into the extensive dungeons beneath its streets. And maybe, when you're ready, ascend the Spire that looms overhead, the heart of an ancient and restless evil.

In Ptolus, the supernatural is expected and treachery lies around every corner—or is it that the supernatural lies around every corner and treachery is expected? Either way, the city of Ptolus abounds with danger, magic, intrigue, and above all, adventure.

A Massive Resource—That's Easy to Use
Ptolus: Monte Cook's City by the Spire is 672 pages, available for both Cypher System and 5e—plus it comes with a packet containing dozens of physical handouts, maps, and props, and roughly 300 pages of additional downloadable content. The art, maps, and production values are astounding in their breadth and consistent in their top-notch quality.

But that's not all. That amount of content, in a conventional book, would be a challenge to manage. So Ptolus is carefully organised, and has dozens of thoughtful features, to make it easier to use than even a typically-sized game book. It has three bound-in satin bookmarks, as well as additional card stock bookmarks. Multiple indices and glossaries help you manage all the content. The margins contain page references linking to more information about what you’re reading, or the map for the location being described. Quick-to-use tables and summaries indicate what’s in each district, who lives there, and even the mood of the place—you'll never be caught flat-footed when the PCs stop a random person on the street for a quick chat.

Throughout, careful design and thoughtful layout make everything easy to digest, manage, and access. And the unique presentation doesn’t just make it easy to use, it also imparts flavour to virtually every page—and every district, location, NPC, faction, and mystery.

Your Ptolus Adventures
Ptolus is an urban campaign setting, but it’s also a setting of dungeon delving and subterranean exploration. Your own Ptolus campaign can run the gamut between dungeon adventures and urban adventures, in whatever mix you choose. The latter involve a surprising array of organisations and individuals that live in this less-than-typical fantasy city.

In addition, this tome contains scores of creatures, magic items, spells, and character options that are unique to Ptolus. Along with new character species, such as the noble leonine litorians and the winged cherubim, plus rules for dangerous soul magic, the bizarre abominations of chaositech, useful innovations of technology, the fearsome wintersouled, and much more.

Ptolus gives you more than enough material to take a campaign with starting characters all the way to epic play—and you'll have so much content left to explore you could go back and do it again.
