Cypher System Role Playing Game

This saturday we will be starting our new Role Playing endevor.

Eric Evans will be leading the way into this new adventure. He has been running and playing in games for decades. His experiences and dedication to the game will be what sets this experience apart from the other tables out there. 




The Cypher system is rather different, it uses the Numenera system, which is a open based system.

Character creation has been simplified by having players fill in the blanks to the statement:

“I am a __________  __________ who _________s.”
  1. The first blank, the adjective in the sentence, is filled in by a character’s “Descriptor”, a way to describe the character’s strongest characteristic.
  2. The second blank, the noun of the sentence, is filled in by a character’s “Type”, which is either a “Glaive” (a warrior type), a “Nano” (a technology adept type), or a “Jack” (as in jack-of-all-trades).
  3. The third blank, the verb of the sentence, is filled in by a character’s “Focus”, or what the character is most known for or their special talent.


From this your difficulty with tasks is set by the Game Master to determine how easy or hard it is for you to complete. 


If this is something that interests you, we will be running this biweekly on Saturday nights beginning at 6pm. The first week will be introduction to the system and character creation. So give it some thought on what you would like to play, and we hope to see you Saturday.
