Numenera Street Date and Building Tomorrow—Today!

Posted by Monte Cook Games (Creator)

It’s a super-exciting day for Numenera: Not only is it the street date for the new corebooks, but we’re also beginning fulfillment on Building Tomorrow!

We started fulfilling Numenera Discovery and Numenera Destiny back in July, first with the PDFs and then the slipcase sets. Backers have had it in their hands, in one form or another, for two months now—and of course we’ve had completed copies of the book files since we first sent them to the printer in the spring. So it’s easy to think of the corebooks as “old news.” But most of the gaming world hasn’t laid eyes on them yet—until today!

The Numenera corebooks are now in game stores around the world, and a new age for Numenera has truly dawned. We thank you, the backers, for helping make this a reality, and hope you’re as excited as we are to see Numenera grow in such a beautiful and dramatic way.

Speaking of growing, how about a few more titles to support the new corebooks?

Slaves of the Machine God is fully written and in editing now. We’ll start laying it out in the weeks to come.

Priests of the Aeons is being written. Right now. As you read this!

But the most exciting news is Building Tomorrow. This 192-page hardcover, which builds on the coolest new features of Numenera Destiny, releases later this month. But we’re fulfilling to backers starting . . . today. (See, I told you this is an exciting day!) If you backed for Building Tomorrow in either PDF or print, you’ll be receiving your fulfillment email today. (If for some reason you don’t get the email, simply log into the MCG Shop, go to My Account (under the Store tab), then click on Coupons. You’ll see coupons for all the rewards currently available to you.)

More Great News for Folk Down Under

If you’re in Australia or New Zealand, we have some more exciting news: We will soon be fulfilling from a new site down in your half of the world. By the time we’re ready to fulfill Slaves of the Machine God (hopefully well ahead of that time, actually), we’ll be ready to ship rewards from our new hub in New South Wales, saving you loads on shipping costs and potentially Customs fees, and speeding the ship time up as well.

If you want, you can hold off on redeeming any of your physical rewards (like Building Tomorrow) until that site is ready. We can’t make any guarantees, but that should be about six weeks.

Cypher Play: The Keep in the Badlands

Cypher Play is our organized play program—new adventure scenarios from MCG, available only in game stores, and played in game stores to build a community of active gamers. If you’re keen to find new Numenera players in your area, want to experience a mini-campaign built specifically for the launch of Numenera Discovery and Numenera Destiny, or just want to get in a bit more Ninth World gaming, ask your FLGS if they’re running Cypher Play!

Season 2018-2 is called The Keep in the Badlands, written by MCG’s Sean K. Reynolds. The player characters travel into the Beyond to an Amber Gleaners waystation, but when they get there, things are not as they expect. What horrors await them? You can only find out by signing up for Cypher Play!

And you don’t get to just play in the store: Every player gets to take home a copy of this exclusive adventure content. And that’s especially great this season, because while typical seasons are six or seven sessions long, season 2018-2 crams in nine sessions. So head into your FLGS and ask them if they’re running Cypher Play.

      My copy of Discovery and Destiny still haven't come in. I keep trying to contact someone to find out why but I kerp getting no replies.

      I've tried just about everything I can think of to get somebody's attention.

      Yeah I delayed my shipping to Australia to combine with Invisible Sun KS. Unfortunately it now seems I am not going to get the Cypher Chest as you kept selling them on your website and now there are none left and no reprint planned. Bad organisation. Enough copies should have been reserved to fill all the KS orders.
