Hey guys, if you've been waiting to pick up some third party products from DTRPG (including the stuff +Ryan Chaddock and I have done for RCG!) this is a great time! Show some independents the love they deserve :)
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.
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
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...
Hey guys, my psychology lab partner and I are running a short study about the college experience and stress. Your information will only be used for classroom purposes; nothing will be published. It only takes around ten minutes to complete. We’d really appreciate your help filling this out. We’d like to get as many people as possible, so we would appreciate if you repost this on any of your social media outlets.
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/
