Monte Cook Games’ Numenera is a game that’s well looked after. I’ve backed it in bits and pieces, sometimes going big, occasionally light but aside from a brief encounter with the computer game, I’ve never played it. I probably should have given the reaction from fans on the news that three more books are possible.
The Kickstarter asked for $60,000. Sound like a lot? It’s less than 24 hours after launch, and there’s already more than $175,000 pledged. You can follow progress on the campaign page.
The Kickstarter offers three thematically linked hardbacks.
Numenera is set a billion years into the future and is about rediscovering the world. One of the aspects of the world to rediscover is the datasphere. This isn’t a real place; this is a virtual space with its own rules.
The new books are; Voices of the Dataspehre, Liminal Shore and Edge of the Sun.
A pledge of $25 is suitable for people new to Numenera. You’ll get the Starter Set. Not new? $50 gets you the PDF of all three books.
Ignore the attractive retailer discounts. It’s $135 to get all three books in print (and PDF).
Is that the end of the story? Community contributions can be found in the comment section at the end of the page.
