Cypher Speak Episode 17: Cypher Friends at Gen Con

Warning: this is rambly, and there is a minor SPOILER for the Predation adventure Cawdor Complex at 15:44-16:00.

Troy & Darcy just returned from Gen Con and break down their experiences (Cypher & otherwise) while still slightly beset by the tail end of bronchitis, con crud, and eclipse madness.

The major reveal was Numenera 2: Discovery and Destiny! It’s not quite a new edition, but a shine-up and expansion of the core game experience into two corebooks. Numenera Discovery will serve much the same purpose as the existing corebook, but Numenera Destiny will bring tools to your table to facilitate community building, crafting, and not just looking back on the wonders of the past, but creating a world worthy of the “Ninth World” title. Also, everything is forwards compatible! We’re really excited. More to come!

Torment: Tides of Numenera – the Explorer’s Guide went home with the silver ENnie award for Best Cover Art – it’s an amazing piece by  Chang Yuan.

Panda’s Talking Games – 57: Finally, Organizing Events aka the actual topic

Show us how you handle organizing people to come to your game, game day, or convention! Senda and Phil talk some basics about getting people to show up and the ways you can try to trick I mean convince them in to coming. There’s a bit about backing up your game because Senda can’t read and then that one song. You know. That one. Oh, you’ll know it when you hear it.
