Planar Character Options for Cypher System

Planar Character Options for Cypher System

Create awesome characters altered—or formed—by the planes!

Planar natives, multiverse explorers, and those touched by mysterious forces leaking through from the planes: these characters are shaped by backgrounds and experiences unlike those found in more conventional environs. From a Warrior who Strikes With an Amethyst Fist, channelling power through a psionically resonant prosthetic, to a traveller character with a mysterious cosmic map imprinted on their skin, to a character with the Limbo Touched ability, who can change objects at will—characters with ties to the planes are just a bit different.

Planar Character Options is brimming with new material and new choices to create and advance characters shaped by contact from beyond, including:

  • Over two dozen new species descriptors, planar descriptors, and foci. Play a Cosmic Rambler, Crossplane Refugee, or Reformed Fiend, who Aspires to Angelic Perfection, Is Pledged to Annihilation, or Wields a Chaos Blade.
  • Scores of new character abilities that can be integrated into any Cypher System game. Build or modify your own types, descriptors, and foci to bring a touch of the transdimensional to any campaign!
  • Dozens of cyphers and artifacts from, or affected by, the planes. Wield a soul net, reality tuner, or crow’s eye.

This is an inspiring companion to Path of the Planebreaker, but you don’t need that book to enjoy everything this tome offers. This book duplicates some material from Path of the Planebreaker (so players can find all character-related content in a single place), but most of this book’s content is new and not duplicated from that title.
