Back This: World of the Cypher System - Bruce R. Cordell Talks About Gods of the Fall
Here is a great rundown of the Gods of the Fall setting, from the Worlds of the Cypher System Kickstarter, by its creator Bruce R. Cordell.
The notion of becoming gaining a divine spark and becoming a god really taps into my love of the DnD Rules Cyclopedia and my hopes for White Wolf/Onyx Path's Exalted game. While I know I could get a Rules Cyclopedia game going, inevitably my players would rather play DnD 5E and I'm simply not prepared to wade into the heavy crunch and enormous dice pools of Exalted.
But, my players are already fans of the Cypher System and running a game that reaches "god level" is both a nice change to the average fantasy game I run and emphasizes the strengths of the Cypher System.
What sets the Cypher System apart, to me, is the flavorful character creation the Noun Adjective Verb creates for players and the ease of GameMastering baked into the system.
I simply can't wait to get my paws on this setting in June.
