Numenera is a tabletop RPG, science-fantasy game that is set in a super-distant future. Players explore the earth and find wondrous artifacts left by past civilizations. The original edition of the game was funded by a then-record-smashing, $500,000 Kickstarter campaign, and spawned a licensed CRPG (Torment: Tides of Numenera by inXile Entertaiment) that was was itself Kickstarted for $4 million. so this campaign makes it a triple for the popular game.
Numenera is quickly becoming a “Top Ten” gift for geeks and gamers this holiday season.
And even if you've already got Numenera, they've got extras to interest you, too.
From the campaign:
At Monte Cook Games, we love Numenera and we love Numenera fans. We want to give them the best, coolest, most wonderful products that we can create.
Now that the game has been out well over a year, won many awards, and garnered an audience of enthusiastic fans, we'd like to do something special--but only if it's something that you'd like too. Our idea is to create a boxed set, like the RPG boxed sets of our youth, for this game. Only we'd love to make it absolutely beautiful and crammed full of all the coolest extra content we can come up with: character sheets, XP cards, and even a gorgeous cloth version of the poster map! With your help, we’re going to make it a reality. If this sounds cool to you, pledge now: This is a short Kickstarter, and once it’s over there is likely to never be another opportunity to get Numenera in a boxed edition!
(Already own Numenera? Don't worry--we've got some things that will interest you as well as those new to the game.)
