We are a weekly actual play podcast using the Numenera (http://numenera.com) Discovery and Destiny rules. Set one billion years in the future, we journey across the Ninth World. There have been eight worlds before this, where civilizations rose to intergalactic heights only to fall into ashes. Now, amongst the ruins and detritus of those ancient worlds, our four explorers search for understanding and discovery at the dawn of a new age.

Lian Rose ,

Fantastic atmosphere!

The GM and players have great chemistry with each other, the characters are distinct and interesting, and there's a nice balance of story and action to keep things moving. I'm not familiar with the world of Numenera, but had no trouble following along through context, and listening to this show has definitely piqued my interest to learn more!

Friendly introduction

A fun and humerous introduction to the world of Numenera. Equally a show about adventure, found family, and exploration. Great all around.wesigisttisssststuaatusutd
