    While not required by any means, I would tentatively recommend using this supplement after using "The Sun Below: A City on the Edge." It's a bit like watching a movie with a friend where the movie is based on a book that you haven't read but your friend has. You'll both enjoy the movie, but your friend knows more backstory than you and may get more out of the scenes. Anyway, do what you will, but I'd recommend getting both A City on the Edge and Sleeping Lady and running them in order.

    This supplement had some things in it I haven't seen before that look fun and strange all at the same time to me. For one, the whole thing starts with a big journey that gets your players in line with the idea of improvisation and feeling personally involved in the story from the beginning. There are not tables, dice, or passive "This happened to you because reasons." Each player comes up with a problem that they encounter on the journey and the next player comes up with the solution to that problem, with each interaction being retold by the GM as an official part of the storyline. Much later in the supplement, there is a point where an NPC asks a question out loud and the first PC to respond gets a mini reward of a small swarm of butterly-like creatures that follow them for a while and help improve their chances in a friendly interaction.

    I'm very impressed with the ideas presented here. The storyline and interactions will keep your players interested and engaged.

    My group had a great time in the adventure and an epic finish. They (and myself as a GM) are relatively fresh to the pen and paper world, but I found John's writing and encounters and the overall situations adaptable to their skill level (and mine).

    The Sun Below is a great setting in a great game world and it meshes well with MCG's established, official supplements. Sufficiently alien, but it doesn't feel illogical and too great a leap to believe it exists in the Ninth World. Marvin brings enough weird, but leaves room for you to bring more -- for me, as a GM, that's important for Numenera. The encounters are scaled nicely, as well, with notes for lower and higher level characters' abilities.

    Though this is, ostensibly, a follow-up to The City on the Edge, my group hadn't run it when we were given the chance to test this adventure (I was setting it up as a possible route for them to take, however). I was able to introduce the characters without too much trouble and make it work even without their prior knowledge of the Sun Below and the few recurring characters here. Given how they ended things, I'm not sure how I'll get Lebby into City on the Edge when they inevitably return, but I'll keep it weird whatever I do.

    In short(er), if you play Numenera this is a great adventure whether you've been to the Sun Below before or not and there's a lot of good ideas to pilfer even if you don't run it straight.

    I really enjoyed reading through this adventure/supplement for Numenera. I was sent a review copy by the creator, and you can read my full review here - http://www.theredactedfiles.com/?p=1789

    This adventure was even more fun to play than "The Sun Below: the City on the Edge". I especially enjoyed the woven mythology and fantastic NPCs we encountered.
