Just think about all the technological advances we've made in the last hundred years. It's pretty amazing. Now, think about what could happen in the next billion years. But that's where you find yourself in Numenera, the RPG of fantastical sci-fi exploration. There's a Kickstarter campaign running right now to bring three new books to the game, each greatly expanding your options for your games.
From the campaign:
Over a billion years into the Earth's future, great civilizations have risen and fallen, each attaining wonders beyond our wildest dreams and furthest imaginings. The remnants of these civilizations shaped the Ninth World into a beautiful but weird place of both wonder and danger.
You have explored ruins of the ancient past and found the magic there called the numenera. You have wandered the Steadfast and the Beyond, to discover cities and peoples you never knew existed. You have dived the ocean deeps and found that there, too, lie wonders of the past. Perhaps you have even followed in the footsteps of the prior worlds and voyaged to the stars, or beyond.
But the Ninth World still has more unexplored places. One of them is all around us, even now. It’s a network of ancient information, sustained by machines far above our heads circling the world far overhead. And it’s much more than that. It is knowledge and secrets, but it’s also a sort of place. A conceptual space. The datasphere.
Up until now, people have only caught glimmers of the datasphere. But recently access points, called vertices, have been discovered. Those who find these access points can use them to explore a metaphysical space and plumb the depths of its mysteries. Further, they can use them to learn of new discoveries in the real world. Whole new lands to explore. And even to uncover the mysteries of the prior worlds, and the grand actions that took place aeons ago, affecting the Earth, the Sun, and the other planets. Actions that have an impact—perhaps a massive impact—on our world today.
Numenera is a game about exploration and discovery. The three new hardcover books offered in this Kickstarter campaign give you all-new methods of exploration and incredible discoveries to be made. They will take your campaign to new heights while embracing the game’s core focus.
The campaign's more than 3x funded with 28 days left to go.
