Numenera: Core Book
The full color, 416-page, lavishly illustrated Numenera corebook offers not only character creation and rules, but creatures, gear, an overview of the setting, extensive GM advice, and even adventures. It's everything gamers need to get started playing in this new and exciting science fantasy world. The game system is streamlined and easy to learn, but open-ended so that it covers a wide variety of situations. A section on optional rules offers ways for gamers who want a different play experience to tailor the game to be exactly what they want to play. The book is organized in a unique way, with color-coding, special icons that call out specific mechanics, and important crossreferences in the margins so no rule, creature, item, or NPC is ever lost in the shuffle.
