Looking for something different than the traditional fantasy table top role playing games? It’s the end of the world as you know it, and you’ll feel fine playing these “end of the world” post-apocalyptic table top role playing games.
Set in a far, far distant future, the Numenera RPG puts a new spin on traditional fantasy, creating something unique to reinvigorate the imagination of gamers everywhere. Play characters who explore a world of mystery and danger to find leftover artifacts of the past: bits of nanotechnology, the datasphere threaded among still-orbiting satellites, bio-engineered creatures, and myriad strange and wondrous devices that defy understanding. Numenera is about discovering the wonders of the worlds that came before, not for their own sake, but as the means to improve the present and build a future.

No swords. No wizards. Just regular humans, in way over their heads as they work to uncover the mind-shattering horrors of the Lovecraftian mythos. Call Of Cthulhu turns the heroic fantasy of Dungeons & Dragons on its head, making investigation the focus of each adventure instead of combat. Using weak human characters completely outclassed by any threat they might face, this more or less ensures that, instead of a long campaign where you eventually become a mighty wizard or knight, you are probably going to die or go insane.
