If you bought our two Numenera Bundles this past July, you probably already know about the Numenera 2: Discovery and Destiny Kickstarter campaign to fund two new corebooks for Numenera from Monte Cook Games. Numenera Discovery revises the original Numenera corebook. In the new Numenera Destiny, players don’t just explore the wonders of the past — they use them to help lift the Ninth World out of darkness. Create centers of learning or trade. Innovate, build, and protect. Manage an entire community and help it prosper and grow — or simply create a cool base or vehicle for your adventuring group. Numenera Destiny will let you make your mark on history and lift the Ninth World into the future.
If you liked the print-and-fold papercraft terrain sets in our two Fat Dragon Games offers (August 2016 and June 2017), be aware Fat Dragon also has a line of Dragonlock digital model files of fantasy miniatures and interlocking terrain for 3D printers. Fat Dragon’s third Dragonlock Kickstarter, Dangerous Lairs, expands the line with mountain and dungeon scenes, a dwarven forge, a tower, and a vicious-looking beholder. “A nice starter 3D printer that can print these files starts around US$220,” says Fat Dragon, “and a standard dungeon wall piece costs around $0.40 in plastic to print yourself — far cheaper than factory-made terrain. Join the 3D printing revolution!”
Onyx Path Publishing has contributed over a dozen Bundle offers. They’re Kickstarting Cavaliers of Mars, a new science-fantasy RPG by Vampire: The Requiem line developer Rose Bailey. Cavaliers of Mars is a swashbuckling adventure setting inspired by pulp fantasy and historical fiction. “Live, fight, and love on Mars, a world of red death and strange mystery — a world of savagery and romance. Mars, where fortune and heartbreak are two sides of the same obsidian chit, where lost cities and dry oceans stretch between the last bastions of civilization.” Cavaliers of Mars uses the new DEIMOS system, in which a hero’s motivations and approach to problems strongly influence her chance of success.
Alan Bahr of Nocturnal Media has bravely carried forward some of the late Stewart Wieck‘s many projects, including Paladin and Upwind. Through his own company, Gallant Knight Games, Alan also publishes Tobie Abad’s two-player RPG A Single Moment (from our February 2017 Bundle for Two) and his own delightfully minimalist fantasy tabletop SFRPG called Tiny Frontiers. Now Alan is Kickstarting a fantasy version, Tiny Dungeon. It’s like D&D writ on the head of a pin: “Play heroic adventurers, daring treasure hunters, imperious magic-users, and more. Explore numerous worlds and discover legends, adventure and fantastical beasts.”
