Numenera 2: The Quiet Year of Lone Makhtesh

Before The Bright Ones came, the people of your community struggle to remember that they lived very different lives. They had their own communities, their own families and friends. They had their own trades and professions, religions and… Read More

Numenera 15: The Feast of Eyeballs

Numenera 14: Chekov’s Big Hole In The Floor

Sharad, an Intelligent Nano who Leads and hey, is that a image-empathic retrieval nanite generator or is this pyramid just happy to see me? Rosetta, a Graceful Nano who Crafts Unique Items and whose nemesis may be falling… Read More
