Numenera Discovery is a book that covers familiar territory; it is basically a revision of the original Numenera corebook. Numenera Discovery will take the place of the origina core book once it goes out of print.
In Numenera Discovery, you get some revisions to make things clearer and more fun, and to increase the options available to players. Nanos, Jacks, and Glaives are overhauled. Many foci and some of the descriptors might see some reworking. You’ll have more options, clearer rules, and perhaps a bit of expansion to the regions of the Steadfast and the Beyond that are covered in the existing corebook.
But Numenera Discovery is not a new edition. Virtually no changes to the way the game plays mechanically have been made—and none of those changes affect the way NPCs, creatures, or items like cyphers or artifacts work. There are also no changes to the setting. So if you already play Numenera, your bestiaries, adventures, card decks, character portfolios, and books like Into the Night, Technology Compendium, and Jade Colossus will not be affected by these changes. Numenera supplements will work fine with your existing Numenera corebook. Your ongoing campaign will flow smoothly through the change in corebooks. You will even be able to mix existing characters with those from Numenera Discovery into your game. In fact, the game can be played with both the existing corebook and Numenera Discovery in use at the same game table!
(One small exception: Numenera Character Options and Numenera Character Options 2 will remain compatible, but will become substantially less relevant following the improvements to characters in Numenera Discovery. We will retire those titles.)
