RTJs and Game Introduction - Game Rules
In this game I'll be guiding players new to Numenera through an exploratory adventure.  As Numenera is a game that reward exploration and discovery, having a character that is completely optimized for combat will be less useful.  So while having fighting ability will be useful, make sure your character is versatile, because you never know what you'll find in the Ninth World!

The world of Numenera is Earth, but one billion years in the future.  Eight great civilizations of unimaginable power have risen and fallen, leaving behind the ruins of the creations to this, the Ninth World.  Humans and others on Earth now use the things left behind to help them in their daily lives.  While most people live at a feudal level of technology, a farmer plowing his field might be using a nano-sharpened blade from a massive automaton, while his draft beasts may be the descendants of genetically modified war beasts from a conflict with creatures from another dimension.

All this collective ancient technology is called "the numenera," and the players in the world can cobble it together in various forms to aid them in their exploration.  What it was originally used for, you will likely never know, but if you can get it to do something you need, that's all that matters for the moment.

All of you will be explorers, drawn to a massive ancient structure known as the Jade Colossus.  It emerged from the ground some 5 years ago, and is so vast that only tiny portions of it have been mapped out.  Those willing to try new routes inside the uncanny place can discover vast new information and numenera.

Here are some basic links to some excellent guides on Numenera character creation, XP use, and comparisons with the d20 system.  All videos are short and to the point, and should provide a good starting point.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?...l_AOMS6FnGFf4gyMA4K_

For your RTJ:

Please provide a writing sample, either from another game, or something for a potential character from this game.  It should be at least a paragraph long, and show good grammar.

I should be able to post about 3/week, approximately.  I would like the same posting rate from my players.  If you are going to be away from your computer for an extensive amount of time (a week or more), please let me know.

Please use good grammar in your posting.  Use speech with a color (different from everyone else's) and "quotation marks".  Thoughts in italics with the same color.  Bold for exceptional emphasis.  OOC information (rolls, questions) in orange.  Or in a private message to me, whichever you prefer.

NPCs will use coral and extremely bad things will be in red.  All other colors are available to you.
