Outtakes from the duo's many travels beyond the Polished Sea, cataloging some of the stranger creatures they encountered.
Med-pods, med-bays, and a dozen trade marked names, all for the technomagical healing bed.
The Floating World, the domain of the Hikikomori
A collection of legendary Chinese bows from actual history, folklore and legend (first submission for my Chinese lore Codex)
There are many grim projections for the Cosmic Era, and far from being the most horrific or exotic, the Universe 26 model has a frighteningly real chance of happening.
Mentats, mentons, and cymeks, the synchronization of the human mind and the computer
A collection of Chinese Mythical Lifeforms compiled from online sources
An ancient Chinese string instrument (guqin being the actual term) adapted to a fantasy setting

Plasmid and plasmic lifeforms are frequently relegated to the back bench of the creature roster, left to linger with oozes, slimes, and puddings, and only appear as random monsters in sci-fi.
Because I freaking can.
Thief, murderer, mercenary, criminal boss and general pox on humanity.

A weapon used in the old days of Setsokan warlords, by the Son of Sets himself, these barbed spikes rend through flesh and bone as easily as paper.
The Staff of the Flame Eagle
You can't miss it, it's eight feet tall, glows in the dark and breathes ghost flames. Even if you're blind it utters blasphemies and damnations, a black poetry of the underworld. If you're deaf and blind you can feel the cold in the air when they turn up.

This tome looks like a haphazard collection of random notes on different types of paper stitched together and bound within a wooden cover. The pages describe all of the 300,000 gods of the world, each in the language of the people who worship them. The book is stored high in the mountains, kept safe by an order of monks. Reading the entire book confers a deep understanding on the nature of the cosmos and access to incredible power. This only works, however, if it is read without translation, meaning that the reader must master each language contained within. The various monks know these languages but there is typically only one alive at a time who knows them all. This monk would be an excellent source of information and/or magic. IF the PCs learn about it; IF they can find the monastery; IF they can convince the monks to help them; AND if they can understand the convoluted riddle given as an answer.
