BEHIND THE SCENES

One of the products that we’re working on right now is the upcoming Cypher System Rulebook. We’re very excited about it, because it provides an agnostic set of rules that can be used for a wide variety of themes and settings, from superheroes and modern day horror to traditional fantasy. Here are two of the early sketches from our artists, to show just how flexible the system is. The first is the first draft of a fantasy wizard by Eric Lofgren and the second is a set of sketches for a super punch from Marco Caradonna.
