I'm Tom and I'll be GMing this game. I have done a little game mastering before, but never on PbP or for Numenera. In fact I've never played Numenera before, but there haven't been any games come up since I got the itch to play it so here I am. I try to post at least once a week, and like most people I go through spells where I post more and some where I post less. I can post more at work, and I work on a week off a week. I will do my best to post as often as needed, and even more importantly to keep everyone's questions answered. I have a few people lined up to play who know the system so they can help with my lack of experience.


Numenera
 

Numera is an RPG by Monty Cook games. If you have heard of or played "Cypher" or "The Strange" then you know some about Numenera. This game is to serve as in intro to the system as much as anything. No experience necessary, but you will need access to the book or PDF.


Beneath The Pyramid
The HookThe tracks have been good for everyone. A little watering hole in the desert transformed into a civilized attraction. The Rukomol races started as a hobby for the people in Codun, but the spectators' gambling made it apparent that there could be Shins earned if one were to organize the races as events.

The races attract people from all over, and you are one of those people. However you came to be here doesn't matter, but what does matter is that you've made a name for yourself already. You've attracted so much attention that the best Rukomol jockey has invited yourself a hand full of other racing aficionados to his victory dinner this evening.

While Uolis and his entourage are busy entertaining guests a heavy blue mist rolls into town from the East. It seems benign to those who notice it (and it certainly isn't anything like Iron Wind). The party ends before the sun rises. The guests are all invited to rest up at their host's home, but rest is cut short the next morning by the hysterical old jockey.

"Tallek! Boy where are the Rukomol?! Where's NuNu!?"


Uolis is a jockey who rides a biomechanical insect known as a rukomol. He has been on a winning streak and made many a gambler very happy, but his mount has disappeared. The tiny man was made to ride rukomol, not hunt them. He asks a group of strangers who have been staying in Codun and indulging at the racetracks to help him so that he may continue to win races and fill their pockets with Shins.

This is a Numenera one shot adventure path. It will be my first time running a game. This game is expected to be fairly short. With it players can get the feel for Numenera, and if they wish to continue we can make that happen as well.



The CharactersThe characters in this game will all begin their journey at a race track just outside the city of Codun. This can be done in the description, narrative, or just as a bullet point somewhere in your ap.It is up to the players to justify their character being there, and also to give Uolis a reason to invite the character to a victory dinner.

The characters will be tier one characters from the Numenera core book. Have fun making the character interesting and giving them personality.


ApplicantsI'll be taking five or six characters for this game. I have a couple folks lined up with some experience who will be playing as PC's, but they can go ahead and apply just like anyone else. Creating a character is pretty simple in Numenera, and the process of making a character sheet is necessary for background information. What this means is that applicants will need to create a character sheet (In a table or however you like since there is no sheet available here) in order to apply.
What I need from you
1. A character sheet. Not available on RPG crossing so make it however works best for you. Tables are nice.
2. A description of your character. Let me know what your character is all about. This doesn't have to be a novel, but I want to get to know them. It's up to you how to do this. You're free to give a list if that's your thing, or give me a biography. You can give me a year in their life or a day. I just want to be familiar with the character by the end of it.
3. Decent writing. This may be demonstrated in your character description, and if so that's all I need. If you described your character without using any narrative, go ahead and give me something. You can link me to a game (make sure it's public) or write out a little scenario in here. It's not strictly necessary for this scenario to include your character, but if you haven't written anything narrative now would be as good a time as any to start.
4. I need you to read the ad. I know it's easy to follow these steps and make an ap, but this ad is really short. I'll know if you didn't.



To be continued. . .
