Cypher Chronicles, vol. 46-2015

Iadace and welcome to this week’s Cypher Chronicles!

Exciting News and Interviews


  • Star fighters. Flying carpets. The Argo. Impossible Vehicles brings you a sampling of vehicles presented as artifacts, both minor and major. Of course, any time characters ride in vehicles, there’s a chance for a chase or a fight, so we’ve also included rules for vehicle combat.

  • Check out Bruce presenting The Strange at Lucca Comics and Games.
  • Tomorrow is the 8th annual International Games Day @ Your Library. Find out how to get involved here.
  • As predicted, due to our recent Flash Sale and ongoing Kickstarter reward fulfillment, we are a little behind on packing orders and shipping. Thank you for your patience while we catch up. (The shipping service that we use will send you an email message when your parcel ships and will provide you with a tracking number for the package, so you will know when your parcel of goodies is making its way to you!)
  • Looking forward to your Kickstarter reward copy or preorder copy of The Strange Cypher Chest? It ships next week…huzzah! Watch your email boxes for parcel shipping notification.

Get Inspired

  • Listen to this bird mimic cameras, car alarms, chainsaws and other sounds it hears. Sounds an awful lot like the biomechanical mogigraphis bird used by scriveners, doesn’t it? (Ninth World Bestiary, page 12)
  • Gearing up to play Numenera or The Strange with your family and friends next week during the Thanksgiving holiday? Don’t forget we made How to Play videos to inspire you!
