Numenera Starter Set

There have been eight previous worlds. Each world stretched across vast millennia. Each saw civilizations flourish before dying, scattering, or transcending. Those that ruled these worlds spoke to the stars, reengineered their bodies, and mastered form and essence.

But now they are gone. The people of the new world—the Ninth World—live among the ruined majesty of an unimaginable past. Are you brave enough to seek adventure, fortune, and discovery in the remnants of the prior worlds? Treasures of unmatched wonder await—but in those ruins also sleep dangers and terrors of bygone eras.
