Cypher Chronicles, vol. 2-2015

Iadace and welcome to this week’s edition of The Cypher Chronicles! 2015 has been wonderful thus far for Team MCG and we hope it has also treated you very well.

PRODUCT NEWS

  • Have you heard the good news? Some shuffling of the production schedule for the Exclusive Numenera Boxed Set Edition is allowing us to take a few additional orders for THE RELIQUARY–for a VERY limited time. If you missed this incredible Kickstarter campaign, there’s one more brief chance to get on board!
