Iadace, and welcome to Cypher Chronicles!
- Ninth World Bestiary 2 is now available! It has nearly 300 new creatures for Numenera (and easily used with The Strange or the Cypher System). Right now through May 9th we’re offering a special CREATURE FEATURE BUNDLE: Ninth World Bestiary 2 and the original Ninth World Bestiary, together in print for 20% off!
- Our BackerKit for A Strange Box is open through May 8th! If you missed the Kickstarter, now’s your chance to get this deluxe boxed set! If you want one of the backer levels not shown in BackerKit (like the LIBRARY OF IMPOSSIBLE THINGS), email [email protected] and she can manually add it for you!
- In addition to designing amazing game books and writing gripping novels, in his spare time Bruce Cordell enjoys flying his camera drone!
