Our new third party supplement is out:  Whisper Campaigns.  It's a guide to courtly and not-so-courtly intrigue in the Ninth World.  It's got weird noble houses and weird knighthoods.  It's got politically useful cyphers and oddities.  It's got its own special intrigue cypher system.  Oh, and a guide to Iscobal politics!  Fiction by +Joseph DeSimone.  Lots more I'm not mentioning.  
Whisper Campaigns - INTRIGUE AND POLITICAL ADVENTURE IN THE NINTH WORLDAdventure isn't just for the desolate wilderness in the Ninth World.

So I've posted things like this before, but this one is particularly special. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of the grandest collections of art in the world, has digitized and made available over 400,000 works from around the world. It's a stunning compendium of anything and everything you'd ever need to fully realize the aesthetics of the Ninth World. You can view them all here: http://www.metmuseum.org/collection/the-collection-online

Some cool, random landscapes I thought worth sharing. Not all have a truly crazy feel, but there are a good few that I'll be referencing in my game: http://awakenedworldtv.com/22-amazing-places-hard-believe-actually-exist/
With all the beauty that our Earth has to offer, it’s a real pity that not all of us have enough time or possibilities to go and see it.

Just one thing I'd like to point out, there is no "canola flower." Canola is an acronym that stands for CANadian Oil Low Acid. It was developed in the 70s by two Canadian botanists. They created a strain of Rapeseed that is lower in acid (making it actually digestible). So what you're actually looking at are Rapeseed Flowers. The more you know...

I'll be using these for reference as monster images in my game. Thought you guys might find them interesting source material as well: http://www.dorkly.com/article/3241/20-pokemon-re-imagined-by-artist

There are definitely a good handful that I wouldn't use, but less for their weirdness than that they too closely resemble their traditional image.

These are awesome. They remind me of something you would see in Numenera or the Strange. - John http://ow.ly/yyP0E
Former laser physicist Tom Beddard has turned his hand to creating incredible pieces of art that celebrate the beauty and intricacy of fractals.

Question for +Shanna Germain and +Monte Cook: what were the origins of the word "Numenera?" Does it relate to the Kantian concept of "noumena," the ineffable things we cannot experience or talk about? The linguist in me has been meaning to ask for some time.

I find myself being inspired more and more by art when planning out the strangeness in my Numenera writing and games. This is an excellent series of short videos produced by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Not all are necessarily weird, but they're a great way to quickly expand your thinking about the aesthetics of the future through the lens of the past: http://82nd-and-fifth.metmuseum.org/

You know you're a Numenera fan when you start referring to all adjectives as descriptors.

Anyone know if MCG has plans to release a physical compendium of Glimmers?

I'd say the final indicator will be the market's demand for such a thing.  So we're still aways off from knowing for sure.
