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.
