Can't wait for more news.

Why are they doing this anyway? I feel like stoned now. Cmon, finish the details, show it to us and let us just drool over it for days. They're not fair!
I have a feeling that if they had announced this with the Numenera kickstarter still ongoing, it would have broken a million easily because people like us would have gobbled it up as background material for the new torment game.

In the meantime, seriously consider giving some of the "Dying Earth" stories a read. Should give an idea of just how weird the setting might be, and they're also pretty damned important influences in modern scifi and fantasy. To that extent George R.R. Martin, Dan Simmons, and about a dozen other popular scifi and fantasy authors have written tribute stories (a collaborative "Tales of the Dying Earth" collection of short stories) and also referenced him in their more well known works.
