Numenera 2, comprised of two books Discovery and Destiny, which is “not a new edition; it’s more like the next step in the game’s evolution, focusing not just on exploring the ruins of the past, but also on using what you find to build a better future”, was announced by Monte Cook Games at GenCon, and the crowdfunding campaign begins on September 19 so watch their profile on Kickstarter.
As part of the crowdfunding campaign, Monte Cook Games will interactively develop The Trilling Shard, a sourcebook that will document the outcome of the guided play by backers in the story of a settlement called Ellomyr.
Over the course of this Kickstarter campaign, we’re going to be tracking the development of Ellomyr and hopefully watch as it grows and flourishes. But it will only do so if brave and capable individuals such as yourself help them overcome dangers and deal with challenges. As threats or needs arise, you, the backers, will help the village face these challenges. The more you participate in the campaign, the more easily the challenges will be overcome and the more Ellomyr will thrive and grow as a community. So please join us, and spread the word to your friends.
In other words, you will become a part of Ellomyr’s ongoing story. You’ll be given the opportunity to relate how you participated in the events that shape the community. When the campaign is complete, we will produce a sourcebook called The Trilling Shard that will be exclusive to backers of this Kickstarter that and detail Ellomyr and its place in the Ninth World. What will that place look like? We’ll only know when this campaign is complete.
