Enter a new realm of science fantasy roleplaying!

Monte Cook Games has a new roleplaying game for you, set in the far-flung future filled with strange wonders—yet hauntingly familiar!

In the world of Numenéra, ancient technology so advanced as to be called magic dwells alongside axe-wielding warriors and the ruins of billions of years of history. First a Kickstarter project and now available to everybody, Numenéra gives you the opportunity to tell an amazing story with a flexible system for both Game Masters and players! Races both native and now-native, such as the lattimor or varjellen, use the remnants of the past to survive in this harsh world, both equally unaware of the true history of Numenéra—but that's what PCs are there to discover! The Numenéra Core Book contains character creation rules, an overview of the setting, a gazetteer of notable locations within the nine kingdoms and beyond (along with plenty of plot hooks), organizations for PCs to entreat (or battle against), fearsome creatures like callerail or Nibovian wife, NPCs, amazing technology... Anything is possible in the Ninth World, but at what cost, and who will pay the price? If you're a player, don't miss out on the Numenéra Player's Guide, containing everything you need to know about playing a glaive, jack, or nano character!

Check out the upcoming adventure, "The Devil's Spine", and be sure to check out the rest of our roleplaying games on Paizo.com!

Alright, who let these people take Numeria and turn it into it's own setting?............Cause this looks awesome! definetly something to look at and maybe spend some time with before the Iron Gods AP.


I thought the same thing when I first heard of this. Still not sure what to make of the setting but I listened to an actual play podcast and they certainly had a good time with it. I've always like post-apocalyptic so I suppose this too would appeal to me. :) The players in the AP session seemed to like some of the mechanics.

In the year a billion and a half, when mankind is enslaved by giraffes, mankind must pay for all his misdeeds, when the treetops are stripped of their leaves...

I know what tune that's sung to...


Oh, and in case someone forgot to mention, the book is beautiful...

Wait. I am confused. So is this Future Pathfinder world? I am surprised Paizo would let some one else do a Numenera source book before the Iron Gods AP.

Numeria is not Numenéra (and vice versa). Numeria is the nation in Golarion where the Iron Gods AP is set, while Numenéra is the name of Monte Cook's setting (and game system and book).


Looks like Ptolus...in the FUTURE.... (cue Star Trek music)


OOOOOOO! oops. I see now. I need to learn to read.

It's a really good system. The only issue I am having is getting others in my current gaming group to try it out. The older gamers are extremely resistant to playing it because of it's setting and because of the limited damage done by weapons and how most armor is generic. (Their words not mine)

It's like pulling teeth to get them to try something new. A few of us want to give it a shot, but eventually I think we can talk the others into trying it.


I went ahead and picked this (well, the PDF version) up last night. Read through a good deal of it and am pretty impressed. I like the mechanics (Danubus: especially the flat damage!) a good deal. The setting is quirky and cool and the book itself is beautiful. I'll probably get the actual book at some point.

Oh. And. Best character sheet ever!

I just received my physical copy today, along with the player's guide, and it is absolutely awesome.

The system, the fluff, the lore, even the class makeup and how it handles level up/advancement: priceless. I'm really looking forward to putting it into action and I highly recommend the product to anyone that loved science-fantasy, if only for the awesome setting flavor and character ideas.
