Numenera's Ninth World is a fantastic vision of a world in which hyper-advanced civilizations have risen and fallen and left their inventions behind. Their achievements became part of the accumulated detritus of eons - and now this assortment of ancient power is there for the taking! One of the denizens of the Ninth World has discovered a way to use the numenera to grow strong, cheat death, and skip across the face of centuries in a succession of bodies. But, he discovers an unexpected side effect: You! Set in the world of Monte Cook's roleplaying game setting Numenera, Torment: Tides of Numenera is a game of deep reactivity and immersion into a new and strange vision. You will chart a course through bizarre landscapes, across the face of a vastly different world. You will face adversaries who harness incomprehensible powers, and who will ultimately force you to face yourself and answer the question: What does one life matter?
