Imagine the World in 100 Years.

Nine authors collaborated to envision a “Smart City” of the first world 100 years in the future, exploring trends like ubiquitous computing, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, biotech, anti-aging and green technologies - alongside corporate governance and social upheaval. "UbiquiCity" is a work of interwoven fiction that might turn out to be very real.

Enter the Augmented Future.

It is the dawn of the 22nd century, and in the sprawling metropolis known as “UbiquiCity,” the most wealthy and powerful districts possess all the latest in smart technology, with every building, device and control system connected via the Internet Of Things.

The world is augmented and identity is fluid. Satellite-guided cars drive themselves. Busy drones fill the skies. Cloud-assisted bots perform once-human jobs. Appliances, vehicles, buildings, media devices, products, streetlights, roadsigns and even toilets communicate electronically, all under the watchful eye of the AI CitySystem. For the inhabitants of the UbiComp zones, life is sweet.

But not everyone in the city is so blessed.

Where is technology taking us? Who will we be when we get there? Short stories by Niko Carcosa, Antony Copeland, Tod Davies, Tod Foley, DeAnna Knippling, SL Koch, Shariann Lewitt, Adrian McCauley, and T Reynolds paint a picture of a realistic future city where ubiquitous computing is the source of world-changing innovation, renovation and social disruption.

It is still in development.
Unfortunately it must always take a back seat to work that supports my family.

The GM's Sourcebook is coming this year, and it will most likely be system-agnostic.

Ubiquicity is a thought provoking collection of stories set in a not too distant dystopian future where smart technology intrudes on every aspect of life. When I first started reading it, I didn't realize there was a meta-plot tying all of the stories together. Each story gives you a little glimpse into what's happening in and around the city and unwraps a little more of the puzzle.

Very cool read, comes together nicely. Scary glimpse into a possible future.

Don't overlook that this is a collection of short stories--not a game aid.

I did.

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.
