Cypher Chronicles, vol. 18-2017

Iadace, and welcome to Cypher Chronicles! We’ve been re-organizing our warehouse this week, so today’s CyChron will be short, but sweet, and when we’re all done with the warehouse re-org, we’ll share photos and a little write-up so you can see our cool new arrangement.

  • Welcome to the Cretaceous. Our ancestors won’t climb down from the trees for another 66 million years, but here we are now. Time travel seemed like a good idea. Exploring the ancient world. Building. Creating an entire society here in the jungles of our primordial Earth. Until those SATI guys messed it all up. Rawr! Predation, which is little sci-fi, a little post-apocalypse, and a whole lot of dinosaurs, is available for pre-order through the MCG Shop now!

  • BackerKit for A Strange Box closed this week. The project is looking amazing, and is set for on-time delivery…huzzah!
    • The available PDF rewards have been shared with backers. Those rewards are The Strange corebook PDF, The Strange Player’s Guide PDF, The Strange Bestiary PDF, Encyclopedia of Impossible Things PDF, Worlds Numberless and Strange PDF, In Translation: The Strange Character Options PDF, The Dark Spiral PDF, Strange Revelations PDF, Alternate Origins PDF, Swordbreakers PDF, The Hum PDF, Mastodon PDF, Cults, Factions, and Syndicates PDF, Eschatology Code PDF, Extreme Cyphers PDF, Gods Beyond PDF, The Estate Dossiers PDF, Ohunkakan: The Living Myths PDF, Impossible Vehicles PDF, When Worlds Collide PDF, The Strange GM Screen PDF, Tales from The Strange PDF, The Paradox Room PDF, The Strange XP Deck PDF, The Strange Creature Deck PDF, The Strange Cypher Deck PDF, and The Strange Character Sheets PDF.

  • Speaking of the Strange, have you read Bruce’s article, A Strange Answer to Fermi’s Paradox, where he shares his Strange hypothesis?
