Cypher Chronicles, vol. 11-2017

Iadace and welcome to Cypher Chronicles!

MCG News

  • Ready to add more weirdness to your campaign? You’ll want to pick up Expanded Worlds, which is full of weirdness. Expanded Worlds contains new rules (and advice) for running Cypher System games in post-apocalyptic, mythological, fairy tale, childhood adventure, historical, crime and espionage, and hard science fiction settings, and much more. Expanded Worlds is on pre-order now from the MCG Shop.

  • In a universe as vast as ours, with tens of billions of planets potentially supporting life, Enrico Fermi’s famous question—”Where is everyone?”—has never been more relevant. That’s what Katherine Manners learned when she discovered, in a secure server room, the melted form of an unknown man clutching a message of doom from another world. A world, it turns out, in orbit of our own. Hidden in the dark recesses of a nether dimension called The Strange. A dimension that hosts countless other micro-worlds, many copies—or recursions—of Earth itself. Myth of the Maker, the novel that sparked The Strange, will be in bookstores soon, but this is your chance to own the deluxe, limited hardcover edition, now on pre-order from the MCG Shop.

  • If Expanded Worlds or Myth of the Maker is one of your Kickstarter rewards or add-ons, you will receive redemption information from us in a couple of weeks, and–as always–we will fulfill redemptions for Kickstarter rewards and add-ons before fulfilling the pre-orders.
  • Due to a USPS shipping mishap, we are currently out of stock of Into the Deep autographed bookplates. More bookplates have been created, and the Creative Team is signing them now. Once they are signed and shipped to our warehouse, we will be able to fulfill the back orders for them.
  • Don’t miss Shanna’s article about using bullet journaling as GMs and players.
  • The winners of the #EstateMisson contest have been announced.
  • Steven T. Wright, of Glixel, interviewed Monte about his career in the RPG industry, and how he came to license Numenera to inXile to become the world of Torment: Tides of Numenera.
