Sean D / Scidion ,

Very Enjoyable

This is a great Numenera podcast, in fact it’s a great Actual Play podcast in general. The cast has a great chemistry, they’ve made great characters, and the way they present the rules makes it easy to follow even if you aren’t familiar with them. The story is very intriguing and the quality is pretty great.

I recommend anyone who likes TTRPG podcasts to give it a listen.

Tenbones ,

Noob friendly actual play through

I don’t have a background with Numinera, and I don’t feel like I am missing anything from the story. They do a good job of keeping the plot moving and exploring the wold without getting hung up on the rules.

The podcast makes you want to roll play again

This Group makes you want to play roll playing games again and gives you hope that players will help build each others characters up in amazing ways. They Contribute in hilarious and brilliant way to the world of Numenera through the Gm’s epically inventive story. The fact that they use Monte Cooks Consent in Gaming clearly shows through in the trust the players have for the GM and the way they feel ownership when contributing to the story collectively. Everyone should give them a try you won’t regret it.
