Explorers Wanted

A weekly Numenera Actual Play podcast about exploration, intrigue, and friendship.

About the show

We are a weekly actual play podcast using the Numenera Discovery and Destiny rules. Set one billion years in the future, we journey across the Ninth World. There have been eight worlds before this, where civilizations rose to intergalactic heights only to fall into ashes, leaving a world of strange relics behind them. Join our ragtag crew of messy adventurers as they navigate weird ruins, contend with criminal intrigue, and ignore their own better judgment... Repeatedly.

Our cast of three explorers from campaign one walking towards camera.. From left to right: Nix - a warrior woman with green hair and serpent fangs cracks her knuckles and smiles. Her left leg is a metal prosthetic with jade green seams. Dili - a short dark haired man with dark green eyes looks distractedly past his pushed up goggles at multi-colored shapes floating above his head. ChaCha - An even shorter fair-skinned woman with blonde hair stares strangely forward with blue eyes. She has extended her left arm flourishing out her bright red hooded cloak to reveal the short-legged lime-green romper she wears beneath.
