    What I like about Numanera? Far future transhumanism plus Magic. It’s like Farscape but without Muppets

  2. Tyler says:

    Being able to roleplay in something close to the world of shadow & the claw which is one of my favorite books/worlds

  3. Eric Fields says:

    Being a huge fan of the Book of the New Sun by Gene Wolfe, I love Numenera’s mysterious setting. The mystery doesn’t take a back-seat to combat either since XP is actually rewarded for discoveries.

  4. Warren says:

    I love Numenera because of the way (the method) it integrates sci-fi into fantasy. I love that it encourages the GM to always be instilling the weird, the unexplained and often inexplicable. Also, taking the crowning achievement of an ancient civilisation and saying, “I’m gonna turn that into a ball that ‘splodes real good.”

  5. WeaponPrime says:

    I’ve been eagerly awaiting the Longshot and now you’re topping it off with a giveaway?! Fandible is awesome!

  6. Chris D says:

    I love Numenera because while it is heavy, and I mean HEAVY fantasy, it also has elements of science fiction and so many other ideas that just about anything can happen.

  7. Diego says:

    I love Numenera because it’s Strange

  8. Marc H says:

    Seems interesting and different!

  9. Rasmus Fonseca says:

    Haven’t played it yet, but hoping to try it out with my group sometime! I liked your previous episodes using the system (plus really like the post dystopian (?) setting)

  10. Jake Reid says:

    The horrible evolutionary path that Kobolds are destined to follow?

    That and it seems to be the closest thing to a coherent launch of Gamma World that I can get outside of Gamma World

  11. Numenera is one of the more exciting games I have encountered in many years. What I love about it is that even in the mechanics of the system the focus is on Role Playing not Roll Playing. I have yet to run a game as I borrowed a copy from a friend. He for some reason did not believe me when I told him that “flying monkey ninjas” had stolen the book.

  12. Sam says:

    I’ve never played Numenera, but if I got a copy of the book I would love to bring it to my group for a game!

  13. Patrick says:

    I love the world of numenera. There’s just so much to see and explore and there’s always something new.

  14. Laslo says:

    I love the Numenera setting and all the unknown history that the character live in and around.

  15. Miguel Camponez says:

    I love the Numenera setting for the way it encourages storytelling and for the adaptability of its world. How you can give it more of a sci-fi or a fantasy taste

  16. Eric Bennett says:

    As the group has stated before; Numenera, which falls close to Final Fantasy, which I enjoy as a game series. Lost places to explore from past worlds with unknown technology perceived as magic. Standard swords clashing against nanomachine constructs just makes me smile.

  17. Ben says:

    I like Numenera because it seems like a good game for an inexperienced GM

  18. David Nielsen says:

    I primarily care about Numerena for its design pedigree, Monte Cook tends to design games heavy on storytelling and light on rules which fits my style best as a game master.

    Numerena itself looks fascinating as a setting, as far as I understand it is an interesting mix of post apocalyptic fantasy. It has magic, which I normally don’t like as it tends to be the biggest setting breaker and plot hole. However the magic in Numerena is essentially the remnants of past high technological civilizations which have fallen into ruins.

  19. Steve Robinson says:

    I just love the setting. A post-post apocalyptic world, science that seems like magic (or vice versa). A creative GM’s perfect sandbox and narrative to boot – with just the right amount of crunch. Love it.

  20. Gordon DUke says:

    I love the mechanics of Numenera, they seem to really embrace cooperative story telling and put a lot of control into the players hands

    I also love the setting, open for almost anything, and the far future, high science/magic and primitive at the same time reminds me of many loves of my youth like Thundar the Barbarian & Vampire Hunter D

  21. David says:

    I think the best thing about Numenera is it’s setting, exploring the wreckage of societies with only slim threads of which to grasp and understand the dangers that exist, while firmly understanding the opportunity for power and wealth that the cyphers provide.
