A little late to the party...

...but really enjoying this one going through the backlog. Darcy and Troy are fun to listen to and it’s been a great way to learn more about the Cypher games, products and lore. Good stuff!

Darcy and Troy do an excelent job exploring aspects of the Cypher System, great for anyone thats going to play or run a game that uses it.

This episode pours on the INSIGHT

I have been GMing Cypher System for 3 years, but learned several new ways about how to think about Intrusions. Now I just want to go run something and try these ideas out! Agh!
