Learn About Our Project:

 

Monte Cook Games' Numenera is a vast awesome fantasy setting that mixes the ancient tech from fallen civilizations with a new era of humanity. With this project, Plate Mail Games will bring professional audio backgrounds to several locations throughout the Ninth World. 

 

Our goal is to create a 120-track audio collection containing locations from the following Numenera books:

  • Numenera Core Book
  • Numenera Guide Book
  • Into the Deep
  • Into the Night
  • Torment, Tides of Numenera The Explorer's Guide Book 
  • Into the Outside 

The Tracks from the Torment, Tides of Numenera The Explorer's Guide Book are not location sound that's part of the Torment video game.

The main collection will have 80 tracks, with 40 tracks of stretch goals available to unlock. The first four books on the list above will have 20   locations per book, giving GMs a wide variety of audio to use in their games. 

Torment, Tides of Numenera The Explorer's Guide Book has our first set of 20 stretch goals. Then we start unlocking Into the Outside, the newest book from Monte Cook Games, and it, too, will have 20 locations for stretch goals. The tracks will be delivered via DrivethruRPG in the form of a 320 kbps MP3 and a FLAC file.

 Click here for a complete track list.

How the tracks work.

Each track is 10 minute long background location that loops. When you are preparing your adventure, you can create a playlist on your favorite audio software that plays MP3s, such as iTunes. When the group reaches the location in the game, you start the track on repeat and play out the scene there. The tracks add depth to the story without distracting form it. Then, when the players mover on, you move to the next location track. There are 80 base tracks at the $60 level, time wise that comes out to 13 hours of audio. If we unlock all the stretch goals, it comes out to 20 hours of audio. 

Numenera Sample Tracks

Here are some samples I am currently working on. They may change slightly with their final version.

My name is Wes Otis, and my wife Michelle and I are Plate Mail Games. I am a professional sound designer with 16 years of post production audio experience working for studios such as Disney and Warner Bros. I am also a gamer with a lifetime of gaming know how. I've been nominated for four Golden Reels and an Emmy for my work. Michelle is a composer with a Master of Music degree. She is a gamer as well who has a great understanding of what works best in gaming audio. She has been writing music for Plate Mail Games from the beginning. We have been designing sound for tabletop games for the past four years, creating hundreds of tracks for all genres. 

Plate Mail Games, like many small gaming companies, uses Kickstarter to help fund larger projects that otherwise would be impossible to us bankroll ourselves. It also gives us a sense of interest in a product line. This is our 8th Kickstarter, so we know the ins and outs of making sure you get the most for backing our project. 

Where is the money going? 43% of the money raised goes to taxes, Kickstarter, bank fees, licensing, and Backerkit. The rest goes to covering the time it takes to make the tracks. If we unlock all the stretch goals, we will have raised enough money to upgrade some of my studio as well. Upgrades include new audio libraries, recording studio time, software, and gear. But, this is only if we do super well and the cost can be covered. I have a fully functional deathst... I mean studio. 

 As mentioned, this is our 8th Kickstarter and we have created several hundred tracks over the past four years. Below, you will find add-ons that you can get through this Kickstarter.  Simply add the price of the bundle you would like to your base pledge, and you're all set. Older tracks will be sent out mid-June, after the Backerkit is locked down. Click tittle to see track list on DrivethruRPG.
