Tomorrow (June 4, 2024) we launch a new Kickstarter for The Light Fantastic, a collection of casual, fun short adventures for Monte Cook Games’ Cypher System. All the adventures come with maps and pre-generated characters.

Why the Cypher System?

This collection spans different genres and requires a flexible game system. The Cypher System is exactly that, its’ modular design lets you mold the system to the needs of the game.

It Came From the 50s

It Came From the 50s is an ALL NEW Cypher adventure. A gang of rock ‘n’ roll teens battles a rival gang who just moved into town. The rumble is scheduled for the big dance at the teen center. And there’s something odd going on around town as everyone’s talking about flying saucers and little green men from outer space!


Hint promo graphic

Hint is based on classic murder mystery board games which you can role play using the Cypher System. Each player chooses a character from those provided. One character will be chosen at random as the murderer. It could be a player character or an NPC. It could be you! No one will know until the mystery is solved. This version is a complete overhaul of the mystery system used in the first edition of Hint (released in December 2021), allowing for more roleplaying opportunities, more challenges and ALL NEW cyphers like The Mystic 9 Ball –  a toy artifact that gives clues, the Cubik’s cube, Teddy Tuxpin and many Baby Beaners.
