Hey gang, not sure if you've taken to follow +CypherCast Network yet, but I'm hoping you will.
We're going to have an exciting announcement soon and I wanted you all aware of the Network prior to the announcement.

YES!
 
This is exciting! The Strange is a 2015 Origins Awards nominee in the Role-Playing Games Category! 

(They haven't shared the list of other nominees with us yet, but we're excited to hear who they are. We're always in great company in the Origins Awards nomination list!)

It's AWESOME
 
Look what just arrived! You can now pick up your copy of In Translation: The Strange Characters Options. 

It features: 

• More than fifty new abilities for the three character types. Explore new moves for vectors, new revisions for paradoxes, and new twists for spinners.

• New descriptors, bringing the total number to more than thirty. Choose from options like Addicted, Crazy, and Slacker (because sometimes a character is best defined by a negative trait) as well as many standard descriptors like Introverted, Kind, and Jovial.

• Dozens of new foci, bringing the total to more than sixty available as characters translate between recursions. New foci include Builds Robots, Calculates the Incalculable, Casts Spells, Grows to Towering Heights, Pilots Starcraft, and more.

• Options for advancement beyond the sixth tier.

The format of these adventures is awesome- check out the free preview if you don't know what I'm talking about
 
Pop Quiz:
1) What went on sale today at the MCG store and other places where fine games are sold? 
2) What's an Instant Adventure?
3) How will most GMs react to the idea of no-prep adventures that still carry the heft of traditional adventures?

(Answers in the back of the book...)
A night of gaming that’s as easy to set up as a board g…

Grabbed a pdf copy today. Looking forward to it. If it's anything as quick and elegant as the mini-adventures for Bulldogs! then I'm set.

I'd agree with Ryan there. It's no bastion of greatness, but it's really quite an awesome resource with /r/rpg.

5 Times now.  Watching it again as I type this.  Also, fairly appropriate I'm wearing a t-shirt that just says Star Wars on it.

Brown is the 4th most common surname in US & UK; David is the 6th most common given name in the US. 
This is why I use my middle name.
Which, incidentally, is Wilson, the 10th most common surname in the US.
