Torment Explorer's Guide is Now Available

Post by sear » August 19th, 2016, 12:44 pm

We're pleased to announce that Torment: Tides of Numenera - The Explorer's Guide is now available! This premium sourcebook for the Numenera tabletop game includes content from Torment: Tides of Numenera as well as expanded world and fiction based on the game, and is perfect for pen and paper fans and RPG collectors alike.

Delve into Greater Garravia and the splendor of Torment: Tides of Numenera. The book includes:
  • Detailed descriptions and maps of prominent areas in the computer game, including Sagus Cliffs, the Bloom, and the Forge of the Night Sky, along with other points of interest in the region such as the Lost Sea, Tiaow Chain, and the Great Library.
  • New character options such as the Bloomborn and Slick descriptors, the Breathes Shadow and Speaks With a Silver Tongue foci, and a new racial option: the aquatic Ghibra from the water city of M’ra Jolios.
  • New creatures, including the ever-hungry corpuscular maw, the transdimensional crystalvore, and the golden nakal.
    Stats and details about important NPCs from the computer game who are ready to step into your campaign.
  • Tips on playing a castoff, the same type of character you play in the computer game, along with optional rules for using the enigmatic forces known as the Tides.
Enough! How do I get it?

Not to necro, but the guide doesn't have most cyphers and artifacts from TTON. The bonded artifacts I found really cool.

It also lacks Rhin's and Callistege's foci, and maybe others.

Probably that's because the game was in an early state when it was created.

Will there be another supplement with more stuff from the game?

Mechanical part of Numenera is quite densely packed. There isn't that much to write.

Wouldn't it be much easier to fan-source it? ;)

I actually asked MCG if they'd be producing a followup "glimmer". They never wrote me back. If this was ever to happen it would be MCG who did it and not Inxile. I'd suggest emailing MCG. If enough people mention it it might happen.
