Track and trade XP without wearing a hole in your character sheet!
In Numenera, exploration and risk are everything. Players earn experience points not for killing monsters, but for making discoveries and facing unexpected challenges. You might rack up your XP between sessions, but most commonly you receive experience points during play, when events take an unexpected turn or you make a remarkable discovery. And XPs are useful in both the short- and long-term: spend 1 XP to reroll for yourself (or a friend), or save them up for character advancement!
The Numenera XP Deck gives you a set of tangible tokens to represent experience points. They’re great for granting, tracking, and trading XP, and the card format makes your tokens easy to slip into your book alongside your character sheet between sessions. This 30-card deck is a useful, elegant tool at the game table.
The XP Deck is also available in print (along with the Numenera Creature Deck and Cypher Deck) as part of the Numenera Cypher Chest. It’s a great price for all three decks, and you get a handy, game-shelf-friendly box to store them in, along with any additional decks you pick up (such as the Cypher Deck 2)!
PDF purchasers: To print your XP Deck, set your double-sided printer to short-edge binding and print on a cardstock material. Then, with a sharp utility knife and straight edge, use the crop marks as guides to trim the cards apart. If you don’t have a double-sided printer, print the pages individually and then glue them back-to-back with a thin, even coat of adhesive. Before glueing, hold the back-to-back sheets up to a light source to ensure they are lining up correctly. The gutters between the cards give you a little bit of leeway if the two sides do not line up exactly.
