They say there have been eight worlds before ours. Eight times the people of this Earth, over vast millennia, built their civilizations. They reached heights we cannot even imagine now: they spoke to the stars, reshaped the creatures of the world, and mastered form and essence. They built cities and machines that have since crumbled to dust, leaving only their vast outlines and barest remnants. This is the Ninthe world. The people of the prior worlds are gone - scattered, disappeared, or transcended. But their works remain, in the places and devices that still contain some germ of function. The ignorant call these magic, but the wise know that these are our legacy. They are our future. They are the...Numenera.
