A few weeks ago, I worked a conversion of Monte Cook Games' Cypher System to Icons. I did it, because my two experiences running Numenera were--meh. This lead to some great discussions with +Michael Barry and +Joey Mullins and made me reread Numenera and the Strange.
It also lead to a shot gun blast of creatures from Rifts converted to the Cypher System in the last few days. And He-Man.
Well, tonight, half of my DnD group couldn't make it, so I whipped up three pregens and gave one of the adventures from the excellent Weird Discoveries a spin.
I had a Charming Nano Who Commands Mental Powers.
An Inquisitive Jack Who Carries a Qiver.
And a Rugged Glaive Who Fights Dirty.
We had a blast. They understood the system within a few minutes and we finished the adventure with gusto.
They even talked about finding a way to insert it into our friday nights.
I'm hoping a get more chances to do stuff with the Cypher System soon. However, I have two long term games I'm running and these days I'm less willing to throw a curve at my players. I guess I'll just have to be patient.
