LINK TO THE PAST
Tides Of Numenera has no narrative link to the original Torment. Instead they share a design sensibility, particularly an approach to storytelling that focuses on attacking a single question from multiple angles. Planescape: Torment asked, ‘What can change the nature of a man?’ Tides Of Numenera asks, ‘What does one life matter?’ Each narrative thread reflects on this in some way, from your own character coming to terms with their unique heritage, to your companions, who find their own answers as they travel with you. The original’s tale of a single being living multiple lives is inverted here, as the Last Castoff encounters the memories of the things The Changing God did while occupying the body that would come to be yours.
