Over one and a half MILLION cyphers!
LD Logo Banner

Requires the Cypher System Rulebook from Monte Cook Games.

Note: While this product now has a print option, it still includes the black-and-white version of the .pdf along with the color copy, to ease the ink-burden on home printing!

I love giving my players cyphers that are at least a little bit randomized, but are still tailored to be approriate for the setting, character, and circumstances. Tables and charts full of specific cyphers tend to make that difficult, so I put together the CyForge, a deck of 120 cards that provide inspiration, rather than rules!

CyForge Example Cards

Each card has a verb to suggest an action or effect, a suggested form for the cypher to take, and an image to spark your imagination. Draw one card for each, and you have one of 1.728 million possible results, even before you apply your interpretation. The image on the card could represent an effect, a target, a form, the ideal use of the cypher, or anything else!

For more randomizer decks with a large number of image and text generators, check out the GameMaster's Apprentice and Deck of Tales by Larcenous Designs, LLC!

Also, if you like the art of the CyForge, you should know that the vast majority of it is available, for you, for free, from the amazing folks at www.game-icons.net! Creators Delapouite, Lorc, Skoll, Faithtoken, and Willdabeast (along with others who contributed even more icons--far more than could fit on these cards!) create thousands of game icons, all available under the CC BY 3.0 license at http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/. Even if you don't purchase this deck of cards, you should go and check out their work, especially if you, too, are an independent game designer!

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
