Cypher Chronicles, vol. 01-2017 - Monte Cook Games
Iadace and Happy New Year from Monte Cook Games! We hope 2017 brings you health, happiness, and loads of gaming excitement! MCG News Team MCG took a much-needed break over the holiday. Thanks for your patience while we catch up on messages and customer service queries. Sean and I (Tammie) are working diligently through the backlog and should be caught up very soon. If you are an international customer or backer and are awaiting your copy of the Numenera Starter Set, your wait is almost over. The re-supply shipment is on its way to Kixto, our fulfillment house in England. Once Kixto receives the inventory, they will process and ship the Numenera Starter Set to you as quickly as possible. Thanks to you, the MCG 2016 Holiday Gift raised $1,775 for charities! Huzzah! Doctors Without Borders: $775 ACLU: $740 American Refugee Committee: $260 We’re very pleased that Geek & Sundry included Invisible Sun and Predation on the list of most anticipated tabletop roleplaying games of 2017. Check out the video of our Twitch live-streamed Numenera game on our YouTube channel. This game was great fun for the team, and it fulfilled one of the stretch goal rewards from the Numenera: Into the Ninth World Kickstarter. If you or someone you know is ready to make the leap from player to GM, we’re here to help you make it happen! Starting next week, we are celebrating New Gamemaster Month. Hang out with us on the weekend of January 13th: Visit with Bruce at Rustycon, an annual science fiction and fantasy convention held in the Seattle area. Hang out with Sean at Orcacon, a Pacific Northwest event focusing on tabletop games and general geekery featuring loads of great guests, gaming, and panels. Get Inspired For real-world GM intrusion inspiration, there’s hardly a need to look further than recent science discoveries: Arachnophobia chopped out of a man’s brain. There is an off-the-shelf cure for radiation sickness on the horizon. On a recent episode of Ego Check with the Id DM, Dr. Michael Mallen interviews Susan J. Morris about her work as a fantasy author and editor, including her editing work for MCG on The Poison Eater. Support Innsmouth: The Lost Drawings of Mannish Sycovia, by Alaxis Press: “Discover a lost portfolio of drawings by Mannish Sycovia originating from H.P. Lovecraft’s Innsmouth in this beautiful new book.” Harlem Unbound, a Cthulhu roleplaying game sourcebook, by Chris Spivey, Darker Hue Studios: “RPG sourcebook set in 1920s NYC, the Harlem Renaissance, delving into Mythos mysteries for either Call of Cthulhu or Gumshoe system.” Universal Fan Con, by Universal Fan Con: “First multi-fandom Con dedicated to inclusion, highlighting Women, LGBTQ, the Disabled and Persons of Color.” Inspire Us Got something you’d like to see published in Cypher Chronicles next week?
