Numenera Goes “Into the Deep”

It’s rare that an aquatic supplement for an established game blows me away, especially when it’s still being written! There is a long list of reasons to love the team at Monte Cook Games, but my Top 2 are 1) they are a kind and generous group of people, and 2) they make incredible products.

I love the Cypher System. It’s a fast and relatively easy game to teach, focusing as much on narrative storytelling as mechanics. Numenera and The Strange are both written with a sense of familiarity to their settings while embracing bizarre twists that allow you to tweak your players’ expectations. It’s an easy system to sell to players because Monte Cook, Shanna Germain, Bruce Cordell, and the team at MCG know how to create fun themes and unique mechanics. So when you tell me they’re doing a supplement entirely devoted to gaming deep beneath the seas, you better believe I’m going to tell everyone about it.
