Oh, hi! We kicked off an actual play last night and I wanted to share it with the group,because by far, this is the one I look at and read the most. I’m by no means a rules expert but I owe the majority of my understanding of this great game to all the in depth discussions that take place here. Pretty much why I felt confident enough to even attempt this. So, I guess, thank you. And thank to Lord Schwalb for creating this world that has fascinated me since the moment I cracked the book for the first time. And now, I submit myself to the to masses for critical flagellation!!

Alright, talk to me about Incarnations. I've read through the section in the Hunger in the Void. I like how it works. Is there an entry somewhere with an Incarnation with an NPC stat block that I've missed? I'm building from the ground up, but I'm just curious if I missed something along the way. I was toying with the idea of a Genie that was blasted back into coherence, but it seems like Incarnations can be used in a way that doesn't make them godlike creationists who effect change with a wave of their hand.

Is anyone willing to share their experience with using this ancestry? I'm looking for inspiration as I'm exploring the roles these things play in the battle against the Demon Lord. The poor bastards they Incarnate into go mad from this experience, so I'm just going APE on the after effects of their intrusions. :) Thanks for any feedback!

All I'm saying is, this PuppyMonkeyBaby commercial is popping up again, and now I feel like it's a SotDL creature for sure. Luring poor thirsty souls to their deaths in some horrible monkey poop filled diaper changing hell nightmare. I've never tried to REALLY stat out a creature that I haven't come up with on the fly, but I might try for this fuckin thing. something along the lines of: The cuteness of the puppy face charms you to change it's diaper. It's Monkey shit, you see, cuz of the monkey body.... so it's worse than baby shit (debatable, I know). But once you smell that shit, BOOM challenge roll to avoid being COMPELLED, and all you can say is "puppymonkeybaby" just over and over, while doing that damn hip swagger dance until it releases you or you die.... come to think of it. This thing probably has an army of thralls at it's disposal. ugh. I have some studying to do. :(

Ugh.. Usually, I can find what I'm looking for, but this time? I FAILED!!!

Has anyone seen or know of any more information on the Betrayer other than in the Core book? I just want to know a little more about the man... what makes him tick, you know? I mean... I have my theories and all, but I wanted to see if there was anything, you know.... MORE. I've scoured Terrible Beauty as well. Thanks for any help!

I must beseech the collective wisdom!!!!

I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around a question that was asked about the Speaks with the Datasphere Foci on pg 75 of Character Options 2.

Additional equipment states:

"You have a numenera device (worn or implanted on your skin) That adds 1 point to your Intellect Pool. If you're ever without the artifact, subtract 5 points from your Intellect Pool; the points are restored if you regain the item."

Maybe my simple meat brain is missing something, but should the 1 point this item grants be to the EDGE? It just seems odd that the benefit is so small compared to the penalty for losing it.

Also, the use of the word ARTIFACT led a player to believe that this grants you an actual artifact. My initial reaction was no because I didn't think that's was Foci generally do.

Thank you for any help!!!

STRANGIANS!! My kids watch this show called "Mia and Me". It's a Nick Jr. show, but we watch it on Netflix. As I'm gaining momentum in developing my infant GM mind it's occurring to me that this show could be run in The Strange. The show starts in the "real" world with a girl who gets a message each episode to come to "Sentopia" through this special bracelet.... IT'S A FREAKIN ELF / FAIRY / MAGIC RECURSION, YA'LL!! I'm way too excited about this I know, but It's looking like the perfect transition out of No Thank You Evil. I know, I know, "Just run it in NTYE, brah." ... Nah, brah, this looks tailor made to be adapted to transition my older daughter. Hell, there's really nothing that has to be adapted. The kids are already talking about what their "recursion / Sentopia" Fairy Elves will look like after they "Translate" into the world. .. Well, I just wanted to share this discovery with the community. I'm going to go write some adventures.. :)

+Joshua Wright This is what I'm talking about. This is at 90% zoom. I'm able to scroll up a little ways and it looks like the the same image stacked one of top of the other. Probably nothing, but it happened while I was playing around. Also, I am ashamed to have had to admit to myself and now to this blessed Community that I could not figure out how to post this as a comment on the original thread. So I did this. :/

Don't know why I'm posting this. Hell, don't know why I'm posting anything at all. It feels like a discarded script for Law and Order: SVU. Discarded, of course, because it was deemed "too much" for the shows format (heavy sarcasm). Reading through this has hardened my resolve to keep my Son and Daughter as safe as I can from something like this. I have NO connection to this and I find myself sickened to be of the same species as someone who can go to such lengths. The betrayal of a child's inherent need to trust has got to be the worst sin/crime against nature that can be committed. A child's trust is sacred. If we can't support that idea, than there is just no hope. I'll be watching this case unfold. If the perceived extensive cover up is found to exist.....than hang'em high, Sheriff. Enablers and pedophiles alike. For an enabler is no better, and through their action, and in-action, have forfeited their right to live among Humans. Alright, I'm done. I'll never do this again because I hate Facebook and Twitter. This goes beyond my petty hatred of social media though, so have at it.
