Cypher Speak Numenera 2 – Ellomyr Interlude – Return to the Valley of Sins

Hello Everyone!

CS-blank-250x250-web

Part 3 of my Fiction – Return to the Valley of Sins

 

Troy here, and I did some short audio fiction for the Ellomyr fiction that is

happening as part of the Numenera 2 kickstarter.

I might do a couple of these throughout the campaign, and I will clearly label them.

This is not a regular episode, just some fiction I wanted to do.

As always feedback is appreciated, feel free to let me know on my personal twitter:
