Looks like it’s Cypher System Review Week! On Tuesday I reviewed The Bridges We Burn and I’m reviewing Into the Outside which I just got as a Kickstarter reward. This Kickstarter has been a real slow burn: the campaign finished on September, 2015 so I’ve been getting little notes from them every once in a while for more than a year. It’s like Christmas every month… which I think is how they do things in the Ninth World.
The setting for Numenera is a blending of science fiction and fantasy. I always think of it as the opposite of Star Wars: whereas the Jedi and Empire are really a fantasy story wearing the guise of sci-fi, Numenera is a science fiction setting and stories wearing the clothing of a fantasy setting.
