Hello fellow adventurers, the Ninth World awaits!
I’m planning a playtest session for the first chapter (Tier 1) of the Numenera adventure I’m currently working on. It would be on the 25th of July at Spielbar, start at 18:30 and last for about 4 hours.
I currently have 3-4 spots open (2 are already reserved) for this game and I’m looking for friendly, rpg-minded people to fill them. You can be new to Numenera or a veteran, both kind of players are very much welcome. For the veterans: It will be my first time running a Numenera game (I’m a long time D&D DM) so I might eff up some things ;).
For those who do not know the Numenera Setting:
Numenera is set in the Ninth World, billions of years in earths future, in the early days of a new rising civilization. There have been eight major civilizations before the current one, some human, some alien, all lost. Those have left behind pieces of technology, generally know as the Numenera, which to the people of the current time are so advanced that by most of them they could be perceived as magic.
As you can see Numenera is a Science-Fantasy setting. It has been created by good old Monte Cook and uses the Cypher System. It is also very very RPG-, player-interaction-, and exploration-focused. Therefore fights are only a way to a means in this game and not its main focus.
For the old hares:
For this session I will use the rules from the Discovery core rulebook.
For the fresh meat:
As soon as I know all the people who join up I will send out some links to gameplay-tutorial videos (by Monte Cook himself) and some documents containing all the things you need to know about character creation. I also will be in 30-45 minutes earlier (depending on the demand) to help with anything in advance.
Thanks in advance and don’t let your cyphers kill you!
