Words of Wisdom From J.R.R. Tolkien

So very true

Ptolus - City By The Spire Acquisition

I recently found a Mint condition copy of Ptolus , which I decided to buy, as there are almost no copies available out there that are in New/Mint condition. I already have a copy of Monte Cook 's Ptolus, but I wanted one for collecting andI'll use my original copy for gaming.

Yeah, it might sound nuts, but it came in the mail today. I opened it up to look at the condition. It is still in shrink wrap and bubble wrap - I put it back in the box and taped it up again ;) 

I rank Ptolus as one of my big three cities that I own - City State of the Invincible Overlord & Haven: The Free City being the other two.

I am well pleased!

Numenera Resources

I haven't posted in a while, but I plan to remedy that. Life was intruding upon the games (which are , of course, the most important thing!)

Here is a little bit of info and links to resources concerning Monte Cook's Numenera futuristic RPG that was funded by Kickstarter , which I posted about some time back:

Numenera is a science fantasy roleplaying game set in the far distant future. Humanity lives amid the remnants of eight great civilizations that have risen and fallen on Earth. These are the people of the Ninth World. This new world is filled with remnants of all the former worlds: bits of nanotechnology, the dataweb threaded among still-orbiting satellites,  bio-engineered creatures, and myriad strange and wondrous devices. These remnants have become known as the numenera.
Player characters explore this world of mystery and danger to find these leftover artifacts of the past, not to dwell upon the old ways, but to help forge their new destinies, utilizing the so-called “magic” of the past to create a promising future.

Numenera on Facebook:


There is a recently created forum/fan site that anyone that is interested in Numenera should check out. Just click on the link above to be redirected in a new tab to the Ninth World Hub !!!
Here is also a link to the Numenera-dedicated Transmissions from the Ninth World Podcast
I will post more info and links later, but this is more than enough for anyone to look into if they are interested in Science Fiction/Sci-Fantasy RPGs !!!
