9th World: Rules Draft V1

Below is the Character Sheet (with rules) I used to run 9th World last night with my Numenera group.

It went very well.  Understand, I don't dislike the Cipher system, however for the type of game my players wanted this works far better for us.  And I won't lie, I really like the D20 System and especially the ArchMage Engine's iteration.

I'm hosting the PDF here and on the blog.  It's a work in progress and I'll probably flesh many things out further.

As it stands, if your Type, Descriptor or Focus apply to whatever your trying to do, add it to your D20 roll.  If you and the GM feel 2 or more apply, add a free point of Effort (1d6) to the roll, as well.
Players roll everything so if someone is attacking them, they roll their appropriate Defense vs the attack, generally 10+the Level of the Opponent.

Use ciphers exactly as they are written and use the their Level as the bonus to the D20 roll and if your type is Nano add it's total.

Thoughts, questions and feedback are appreciated.

This is a fan work and I have no desire to challenge the awesome creations of Monte Cook Games, Fire Opal Media or Pelgrane Press in any way.  This is merely a homage to their handwork, diligence and creativity.  I stand on the shoulders of titans.
