Put your gaming hat on Poppers because this week we have the pleasure of welcoming game developer Monte Cook (of Dungeons & Dragons Third Edition fame) to the show. We get the details on his journey through the very a successful Kickstarter campaign for his tabletop RPG, ~NUMENERA~! Through tireless efforts he was able to surpass his $20,000 goal and raise over $500,000, from more than 4,500 backers, and reaching 30 different stretch goals!!
Player characters explore this world of mystery and danger to find these leftover artifacts of the past, not to dwell upon the old ways, but to help forge their new destinies, utilizing the so-called “magic” of the past to create a promising future. (www.numenera.com)
The rulebook of Numenera is going to be a full-color book with art and design by the amazing Kieran Yanner, as well as a team of other talented artists.
Check out the Numnera Kickstarter promo video to get a feel for the game from the creator himself!

Lastly, our good friend and gamer chick, Natasha from Kentucky Geek Girl drops by to join in the interview...and to partake in our usual shenanigans.
