The Ninth World

The Ninth World is built on the bones of the previous eight, and in particular the last four. Reach into the dust, and you’ll find that each particle has been worked, manufactured, or grown, and then ground back into dirt—a fine, artificial soil—by the relentless power of time. Look to the horizon—is that a mountain, or part of an impossible monument to the forgotten emperor of a lost people? Numenera is a delve into techno-barbarism, taking inspiration from the Dune series, Saga comic book series and Cloud Atlas just to name a few.

This campaign is set in Navarene the most northern kingdom of the “civilized” Steadfast region. Navarene is the boundary between the civilized Steadfast and the “Beyond”. This boundary has become more important of late with the True Faith’s Amber Pope calling for a crusade against the Gaian lands to the north of the mysterious Cloudcrystal Skyfields that borders Navarene.

The Campaign

This game will offer the opportunity for players to assist with the development of a new settlement assisting its founders with issues both of where they have settled and where they came from. Through salvaging the surrounding area and developing the land the party might be able to convert a rabble of crude huts into a settlement that can stand the test of time.

How It begins

Enslaved by the Talo noble family under loose pretence of minor crimes committed. Nashina Talo promises you freedom should you assist the Talo guards in bringing some “brigands” and “criminals” to justice. Explosive slave bands strapped around your arms, this would be the quickest route to freedom spare losing use of your arms. Matters are not as simple as presented as you soon discover this “Criminal” group is made up of Nashina Talo’s escaped slaves.

About the system

Numenera uses the Cypher system with actions requiring d20 based tests with results sometimes dependant on a d6 or d10 role. All in game actions are rolled for by the players. As mentioned above no prior experience in the system is needed, characters will be created as a group during the first session.

See below a video by Geek & Sundry showing the basics of the cypher system as used in a different example game.
