Welcome to episode zero of Cypher Speak. Darcy and Troy begin their quest to delve into all things related to Monte Cook Games: creators of the Cypher System, Numenera, the Strange, No Thank You Evil, and the upcoming Invisible Sun RPG. Every show will have an Artifact, which will be our major topic or question for that episode. Darcy and Troy will then throw Cyphers at that particular Artifact. These will be different perspectives or points of view that will be useful for unpacking or exploring the episode’s Artifact. Lastly will be the Poddities; these will be little shoutouts about something cool that Darcy and Troy have seen recently and want to share.
In this introduction episode, Darcy and Troy talk about the format of the podcast, and why they love the Cypher System so much.
