Cypher Speak Episode 4: Sherlock Holmes & the Case of the Missing Recursion Entry

CS-blank-250x250-web221B Baker Street – a mini-reality filled with danger and possibilities for your adventurers. Troy & Darcy discuss some of their favorite Strange recursions, and then explore how PCs might interact with this recursion, including cyphers and the twin icons Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty.

Worlds Numberless and Strange – Dozens of new recursions for the Strange, expanded information on Ardeyn and Ruk, cyphers, artifacts, adventure hooks, creatures, and foci, oh my! It’s one of Troy and my favorite resources.

The Paradox Room – Two short stories from the Strange, one featuring a creature that escaped a fantasy recursion and found the bounds of Earth physics to be unpalatable.

Strange Revelations – A book of 10 extremely varied Instant Adventures for the Strange, complete with fabulous “Show ‘Em” pieces of art, one of which is a game board that you play on during the adventure! These adventures can often be played in the Strange universe, where the recursions are fictional, or you could play straight-up Cypher System within the fiction of that recursion. I can’t recommend it enough.

Poddities

  • Troy: Living 4 Crits play report of Strange Suns – a Dark Sun/Sherlock Holmes Strange mashup campaign
  • Darcy: Numenera Character Options 2 – new Types, Descriptors, Foci, and even expanded information on some of the factions in the Ninth World! Lush art, inspiring, and as always cross-compatible with any other Cypher System game you could want. There are WATER BENDERS in here, this is NOT a drill.

Keep in touch & let us know your thoughts on the show!

Thanks for all the support so far!
