Artwork that makes me think of The Strange

I have been playing The Strange on and off for almost a year and I have to say it is the first Sci-fi RPG since Battle Tech to keep drawing me back to want to play more. Many thanks to +Monte Cook and +Bruce R Cordell for their gift to the gaming community. I have been a fan of them since the 2nd Edition days of D & D.

Manhattan Projects: More inspiration for the Strange. It was about much more than just making an atomic bomb!

Great comic book for inspiration in The Strange. A couple with amazing intelligence and powers mimicking cyphers. They build a team with two atomic twin girls, an undead thief and Jules Verne's brain in a robotic body!  Investigating area 51 and beyond!  You can read it on Scribd or I guess look for it elsewhere.

2nd Session of the Strange. It was a fun session!

Post has attachment

Greetings fellow Strangers!  Just played our first session of The Strange last night. Hope to have some of the highlights of the session soon. Some initial thoughts on playing the game and the system.

I like the Cypher system. Having played Dungeon World the last couple of years I am getting used to rarely rolling dice as a GM.  While I miss the dice, I do like how much more fluid the game goes with less dice rolling.

It would be nice to have a GM reference sheet with some of the more common actions and events of the game easily available. I know I am lazy, but it doesn't hurt to ask does it? Is there one out there that I missed? Not looking for a screen, more of a front & back sheet.

Things to remember for GMing next session - Better utilization of edge and effort. I tended to either forget both of them when the players are making rolls.  I do like the three pools as a better reflection of the character's overall health. Too often it is easy to default into just watching the "hit points."

The players really enjoy the setting and find the system easy to understand. All of them are new players to both The Strange and RPG's in general having only tested the waters in a couple of sessions of Dungeon World. They weren't too excited about a fantasy setting, but the modern sci-fi vibe really engages them.
