Check Out Building Tomorrow!
Today we launched preorders for Building Tomorrow, and you know what that means: Release of the first supplement following the new Numenera corebooks isn’t far away! You can download a free preview of Building Tomorrow from the MCG website now. We’re really excited about this book, which builds upon the coolest new features of Numenera Destiny.
So what do you get in the 192-page hardcover Building Tomorrow? Hundreds of new cyphers and artifacts to find or build. New types of numenera items (biological and otherspace). New varieties of iotum and loads of plans for automatons, vehicles, and installations. New communities to integrate into your campaign—or use as your home base. And to tie it all together, high challenges—hooks and threats related to Ninth World-communities that you can build adventures, story arcs, or even entire campaigns around.
The book is at the printers now, and we expect it in our warehouse in just a couple of weeks. At that point we’ll start fulfillment, so if you’ve backed for Building Tomorrow, look for your redemption email late this month or perhaps very early in October. The street date for the book is in mid-October.
(Didn’t back for it? Hop over to the MCG Shop and place your preorder now. You’ll still get your copy ahead of street date—right after we fulfill to backers, in fact!)
Speaking of Fulfillment
Some international backers are still awaiting their slipcase sets. We're really happy to be working with a UK fulfillment house to keep the costs of shipping down for UK and international backers, and overall this process greatly cuts down on shipping times. But the scale of the Numenera fulfillment is far and away the biggest and most complex since we began shipping out of the UK, and that’s not even counting fulfillment of Invisible Sun, occurring at almost the same time. That’s put a lot of new and unforeseen strain on the system, but we're ironing out the last of the kinks, and everything should be smooth going forward. Even with these delays, you should receive your slipcase set well ahead of street date. We’re super sorry that some backers are still waiting, and thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for your support and patience.
Cypher Play: Numenera Starts in October
The new season of Cypher Play, our organized play program, launches on October 1st. This season launches with the new Numenera corebooks, and you can bet it’s going to make the most of all the great new game options introduced in Numenera Discovery and Numenera Destiny. Cypher Play is only at retail stores, so if you’d like to take part make sure your friendly local game store has signed up. (It’s free for them and for you, and great for building a Numenera community in your area, so there’s no reason not to!)
