Hello girls & boys! So as most people are probably aware, there’s a Humble Bundle up for the whole Numenera shebang. I picked it up and glanced over the setting, rules, and character building. It looks really interesting. The blend of science and magic and technohorror throughout its theme is really wonderful and the Player and GM Intrusions where you trade XP points back and forth in order to have a chance of influencing the story in different ways is a cool little collaborative storytelling technique.
Anyone wanna give one of the free starter adventures a shot at some point?
Those would be Spire of Hunting Sound, where faceless automatons from a different world whisk you away to a tower made of pure sound: https://www.montecookgames.com/store/product/the-spire-of-the-hunting-sound-quickstart-adventure/
And Ashes of the Sea, where you get teleported to some strange other world and have to enter an oddly humanoid looking statue to find your way home: https://www.montecookgames.com/store/product/ashes-of-the-sea-pdf/
I haven’t read into the adventures at all because I’d rather play than DM this one, but if needed I can try DMing as well if we get enough interest but no DMs.
Maybe we can run this sometime during a Thursday session or perhaps arrange another time?
