Unmasked Is Coming!

Posted by Monte Cook Games (Creator)

Hello, Cypher System Kickstarter backers!

Unmasked, the third of the big campaign settings you funded, is at press now! And that means loads of rewards are headed your way. In addition to the book itself, we have fiction, the adventure, and the conversion guide all fulfilling in the next few weeks:

  • Day One, the Unmasked fiction piece—this goes out next week!
  • Unmasked itself will start shipping to backers in mid November.
  • Followed about a week later by the Unmasked Conversion Guide, so you can easily mix-and-match elements of Unmasked with other Cypher System settings including Numenera and The Strange.
  • And the adventure will go out in early December.

As usual, look for an email from us letting you know your reward is ready for redemption. You can also always check the Coupons section on your My Account page at the MCG Shop to see what rewards you have available.

If you have a Cypher System slipcase coming, that’s also at press, and we anticipate fulfilling it with Unmasked. And to top it off, the Cypher System Creature Deck is wrapping up—we’ll be shipping that in the not-too-distant future too!

Speaking of loads of rewards:


There are just a couple of days left in the Numenera 2: Discovery and Destiny Kickstarter. If you haven’t checked it out, run—don’t walk—to check it out now!

  • Backers get an exclusive 64-page book that won’t be available anywhere else; it’s included (PDF and/or print) in every backer level.
  • Our friends at inXile are giving every backer a coupon for half off Torment: Tides of Numenera, the critically-acclaimed CRPG. Just back for at least $25 (the coupon alone is worth almost that much!)
  • Every print book reward and add-on comes with the PDF for free!
  • Backers are helping shape the story of a Ninth World community throughout the campaign, and the results will affect the content of Numenera products. (As far as we know, this is unlike anything ever done before on Kickstarter!)
  • Stretch goals have improved the components of the new corebooks, making them better for everyone. Your contribution, as a backer, is making Numenera seriously better!
  • The basic corebook levels include the corebooks with all the upgrades, PDFs of the corebooks, the 64-page supplement, and another PDF supplement. The All the Books levels offer an even more incredible deal—NINE books, plus a deck, and more stretch goals to come!
  • Due to the success of the campaign, we’ve created some really cool Numenera accessories. You don’t want to miss the Numenera Player’s Kit, with some really cool, personalized components!


We’re making a two-book set to replace the current Numenera corebook. Numenera Destiny gives you an entire new way to play Numenera, building communities and lifting the Ninth World out of its dark age and into the future. Numenera Discovery revamps the character types, giving you loads of new options, along with all new adventures, changes to how foci work, expanded coverage of the Ninth World, and changes to how the rules are presented to make the game play even faster and more fun. And best of all: Your existing characters, campaign, and supplements will work with the new corebooks without any modification.


This groundbreaking campaign is in its final days. Help make Numenera even more awesome, and grab an incredible deal for yourself along the way. But don’t dawdle—it’s almost over!

Gods! Dinosaurs! Superheroes! (and Expanded Worlds!)

      I am anxious to get this to the table. As we approach the end of November, is there an ETA on the release of the setting book?
