Time to hit the ol’ dusty trail?

An entirely idle thought crossed my mind the other day: GURPS tried to be a universal RPG system by piling on the rules, just so much customization, while the Cypher system might have a better chance of being… Read More

Numenera 22 – um, some other numbers.

We got pretty much through Weird Discoveries, the 10 instant adventure supplement for Numenera. They’re planning on doing one for Numenera 2 and I’m psyched for that because they are really minimal set-up adventures that are generic enough… Read More

Numenera 17 – 21?

Now that I am released from the tyrannical grip of the excellent Pillars of Eternity II, (STRONG RECOMMEND), I finally have time to update. Major spoilers for the Into The Obelisk scenario from Weird Discoveries – there’s really… Read More

Numenera 16: The Berenock Deception

Berenock is only briefly described in the adventure in Weird Discoveries. Literally the only information is that it is free of the despotic rule of House Nooran, it floats in the sky and is accessible by fish-dirigible. So… Read More

Numenera 15: The Feast of Eyeballs

Here’s a summary of the last two sessions, the first of which easily slides into my top 10 roleplaying sessions on account of how well it went in terms of player buy-in and cascading wackiness. The second was… Read More

Numenera 10 and 11: When you go down to the woods today…

Just getting caught up now – if I get last week’s session (fairly short, influenced as it was by the celebratory mood following the Vikings game) and tomorrow’s session ( an ultra-rare Saturday session) I’ll be happy and… Read More

Numenera 9 and 10: The Creeper

This is where things get a bit more vague. I may not have the order of events down correctly, but here’s the fundamentals of what went down. Sharad, an Intelligent Nano who Leads a cult of one. Meef,… Read More

Numenera 8 and 9: Below Plainsight

Oof, I fell behind. We didn’t play for a few weeks while I got this blood geyser inside of me figured out and I didn’t have the time/energy to update what was going on. So I remember session… Read More
