NOTE: This app is designed to work in conjunction with the Numenera books, rather than to replace them. For fuller explanation of the abilities and options listed here, we have provided the appropriate page numbers in the Numenera books.

If you want to explore the Earth a billion years in the future in Monte Cook's Numenera, you'll need to be prepared. That's where this app comes in handy! Designed to guide you through character creation for this science-fantasy RPG, the Numenera Character Creator app also allows you to track your progress in real-time while you play.

We'll guide you step-by-step through the character creation process for the Numenera RPG (however, we don’t do the numenera and cypher steps because this will be between you and your GM - see below!).

You'll choose a descriptor, type, and focus. Your choices will automatically create your skills and provide you with your starting equipment. You'll modify your basic stats (Might, Speed, and Intellect), and we'll track your base and your current pool. You can track your damage and recovery rolls, and you'll be able to add or remove abilities and equipment.

Did we say equipment? This does include your numenera items - just go to the Equipment tab, click on the Numenera button, and you can manage your Artifacts, Cyphers, and Oddities.

You'll also be able to modify your background and character description, and we provide a handy field for other notes.

Have you advanced a Tier? No problem! We'll help you upgrade to the next one as your character progresses in power!

The Numenera Character Creator app is all you need to get started… apart from the actual tabletop Numenera rules, that is!

* Includes the following advanced features:
* Custom character create which allows you to create any character with any stats ( no wizard)
* Printing
* Edit all stats including tier allowing you to rush a character
* In-app purchase for ad-on books.
* Random Cypher selector!

We are planning to update the Character Creator app frequently. Please submit bug reports and issues to Thank you, and iadace!

Nice platform... Needs some added features

The app does make characters as described. Some features I would like to see implemented to make it useful would be to print to PDF or anything more than just air print, search function for big lists such as the cypher list and a description of powers and items rather than see book whatever page whatever. These options would make the cost of the app plus purchased features worthwhile. Otherwise stick to free online websites.

Missing Mlox

I was so excited to start my new character using the app this time, but I was immediately stymied because Mlox wasn't an option under descriptor. Small oversight that makes this kind of useless for me.

Please update

Can you include new descriptors and foci in the newer publications?
