Announcing Heroes of the Cypher System

When disaster strikes or menace looms, the best among us don’t run from danger—they run toward it!

The Heroes of the Cypher System Kickstarter Campaign brings the high-flying, power-packed action and excitement of superheroes—as well as heroes from our own world—to the critically acclaimed fan-favorite Cypher System game system.

When things are at their worst, the best among us rise. When disaster strikes or menace looms, they don’t run from the danger, they run toward it. Whether they claim supernatural abilities or just plain courage, we use a single word to describe such people:

In a world that could use a few heroes now more than ever, you can now join their ranks—using the flexible TTRPG mechanics of the Cypher System.

The Heroes of the Cypher System Kickstarter campaign launched with two titles: Claim the Sky and First Responders.

Imagine, for a moment, that you find yourself embued with powers well beyond those of mere mortals. With great might, you fear no danger that would threaten others. You stand before the forces of injustice with confidence. You slip the grasp of gravity and soar. You Claim the Sky itself. With a similar look and 224-page hardcover form, Claim the Sky will be a beautiful companion to the recent Cypher System supplements The Stars Are Fire, Godforsaken, Stay Alive!, and We Are All Mad Here. And like those titles, it will cover its genre both widely and deeply, enabling all styles of superhero play—from Silver Age comics to modern blockbusters, and everything in between or beyond. It also includes the Boundless campaign setting.

But what about on the other end of the scale, where we’re all a bit more earth-bound? We can still be heroes. Saving lives amid natural disasters, man-made cataclysms, pandemics, or crises of any sort, we can take on the role of First Responders. First Responders will be a 128-page hardcover that presents rules, options, gear, and more for heroes inspired by the real world to take on massive challenges and dangers.

Other titles may be unlocked as stretch goals; MCG has a long history of successful campaigns unlocking numerous new books. Claim the Sky and First Responders will make heroes of all of us!
