Back when I was contributing to Castles & Cooks, I reviewed the original Numenera game in one of my first big book reviews. It will surprise no one that my interest in Cypher remains, so when Monte Cook Games announced an update of the Numenera core books I eagerly signed up. As they recently announced they sent copies out to backers so you guys are in for a shiny new review!
Having introduced everyone to the background elements and the long-running history of Dark Horizon, I’m back with some actual game mechanics. Or, sort of. This post is to clue everyone in to how player characters are designed in the setting and why they are slightly different from other Cypher characters.
