Numenera Player's Guide



The characters of the NumeneraTM RPG are varied and intriguing—and there are so many options! Even after you choose to be a glaive, will you be a Charming glaive who Leads, a Learned glaive who Wields Two Weapons at Once, or a Graceful glaive who Rides the Lightning?

Create characters, explore the setting, and learn the basic rules in this inexpensive player’s alternative to the Numenera corebook. It’s perfect for getting a taste of the game, having an extra rules and setting reference on hand at the gaming table, or for game masters to hand to new players. The Player’s Guide is a fantastic, ready resource for anyone playing Numenera, and a wonderful introduction and teaching tool for the game.

The Numenera Player’s Guide packs a lot into a 64-page package:

  • An overview of the exciting Ninth World setting
  • The basic rules to play Numenera
  • Everything needed to create characters in a step-by-step process
  • A variety of options that allow players to create the characters they desire

Sure, this is only a reprint of a section if the Core Book, but if you're only interested in being a Player (and not a GM) or if you are a GM and not interested in having to constantly pass your Core Book around then this is a requisite to own. It cont [...]

While the content in the book is really just a "copy" of the core book chapters for players it's really handy to have at the table. I can now pass the core book around and the players guide. I purchased the PDF and then just printed it for my [...]

Simpler rules and easy setup. This is what tabletop RPGs need nowadays. There is very little product to help introduce. [...]

For the most part the Player's Guide is just selected excerpts taken directly from the Core book, so there really isn't anything new if you've already picked up the Numenera rulebook. What you do get however is a well-selected cross-section of t [...]

Stunning artwork. Love the carefully chosen classes and inventive progression scheme. His world seems vast and brings back happy memories of Vance's Dying Earth. This will be a challenging rpg -- simple on the surface, but as deep as your imaginatio [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
