GMing for the Cypher System

We’re delighted to bring one of our Gen Con Online seminars to YouTube today! GMing for the Cypher System brought together a panel of top-notch Cypher System GMs (Dean Lewis, Jess Meier, Jack Shedd) moderated by our own Charles Ryan. They delivered their top tips and took audience questions. Check it out, and check out An Evening with Monte Cook Games if you’d like to get more of our Gen Con experience.


With more and more gamers having access to 3D printing, the world of miniatures and terrain is being revolutionized. We really love the models included in Dragonbond: Battles of Valerna.
