Numenera is a Tabletop RPG that is made by MonteCook and uses the cypher system.
Its a billion years in the future. The earth has seen its denizens rise, from stone age to stellar empire, multidimensional civilization, or perhaps transcendency to near godhoodnot once but eight times. Each of these civilizations has altered the earth as they have seen fit, in ways sometimes small and sometimes grandiose beyond imagining. The landscape of the Ninth World is shaped by structures, machines, and landmarks that bear the mark of previous worlds, and dotted with ancient devices, creatures, and items of wondrous power and inexplicable purpose. Islands of crystal float in the sky. Inverted mountains rise up above plains of broken glass. Mysterious abandoned structures stretch across distances so great they affect the weather. Massive machines, half buried, churn and humbut for what purpose?
Nobody knows what became of the people of the previous worlds; they live only in myth and legend. But now is the dawn of a new age, and the people of the Ninth World are starting anew. What will you find as you explore this world? How will your discoveries shape the future of humankind?
Numenera use a simple and easy to understand system that has only three major pools, speed, might, and intelligence, that are used for everything you do, from activating abilities to taking hits. Character creation is quite a simple, as any character can be defined by a single sentence. "character's name is an adjective noun that verbs".
Another thing that sets Numenera different from other RPG is that it has a lesser focus on combat, (there still is plenty of combat), but it rewards more to discover new thing, and to think outside of the box with its XP system.
I welcome new players, so if you want to play and are new please comment down below and I can either make you a character to play, or you can arrive early for me to go through character creation with you. (however a pre generated is recommend for new players but its up to you to choose).
Finally, I want all to know that I am still a new GM, so thoughs who have done RPG before please be patient with me, and I hope you all will enjoy what I and Numenera has to offer.
