First of all, I know it’s been a while since I’ve written here. But I’m not going to apologize, because it’s mainly been because I’ve been really hard at work on the Numenera corebook. I’m so excited how everything’s coming together. The rules are being developed, the official playtest is winding to a close, and the initial draft of the setting portion is getting ready to go to the editor. There’s still a lot to do–a few last, finishing touches on the chapters dealing with creatures and the numenera (the cool stuff you can find and discover), some pre-made adventures, and the GMing chapter. In many ways, that last one is the most important chapter of the book, so I’ve saved most of it for last.
As you’ve hopefully seen, we’ve been getting some great art in from artists, and more comes in each day. Including… dum dum DUM! The cover, which you can see right there to the left. I have to say, I think Kieran Yanner outdid himself on that one. We were so excited to have the cover done, that we decided to launch our preorder campaign for Numenera a bit early. That’s right–you can now preorder your own copy of the 416-page hardcover book (with all that glorious art) if you didn’t get in on the Kickstarter. Plus, to thank you for preordering, you get a copy of the ebook for free. But the preorder offer is only available until the end of May.
