My first recursion, take a look and leave some feedback if you are so inclined.

+Josiah Bradbury Yeah, it's pretty badly written but it's just dropping, not assigning the copyright. I'm not sure it's even technically legally valid since it's really actually hard to public domain works but for all intents I can see here, they couldn't complain if you published it elsewhere.

What are the mythical creatures of your world?

I don't mean the fantastic, I mean actually mythical?  What are the bigfeet and nessies of your world?  Anything special that there are reports of but there is no reliable evidence of?

Standard: dragons.  They're easy as their "dormant" periods can be longer than human lifespans; is there still anything on that mountain?
Much of the Dark Forest is dangers of unverified existence (ex: ROUS).
Less standard:  existence of some deities and whether magic is or is not connected to demons. Magic exists, but will it really damn you to use it?  That's not a creature, but certainly unknown to people.

So I notice that in the corebook there is a Foci called "Licensed to Carry", it states that the for gear you get a two weapons, one of wich must be a firearm with 3 clips of ammo.

But I can't find anywhere in the book where ammunition for firearms is mentioned. is it a big deal? Should reloading be intrusions? Did I just miss something?

How do you handle earth ammunition?

I let my PCs tell me when they are out of ammo in a magazine, or I use 1s/GMIs for it.

I was just playing final fantasy 12 again and I noticed similarities between the ninth world and ivalice.

Both have fantastic technology and "magic", both have a pseudo medieval setting and both have large ruins of the past that are not totally understood.

I don't know how well default numenera would work with a final fantasy setting... but maybe when the Cypher system book comes out... hmmm.

You could still call then cyphers and reskin them for the setting. Maybe consider them potions or single use wands.

I just found this recently, and I was wondering if there were any plans to update it, or any more plans to expand it.

thanks!

So I ran my first session of the strange last night and it went well. The party was recruited into the estate after taking care of a qinod tester that appeared on a cruse ship they were on.

For the next session to throw them for a loop I'd like to start in the middle of the action.

I am thinking about before the session giving them the mission such as investigate a smuggling operation using the wonderland recursion. Simple enough, but when the session actually starts start it off in the middle of a jabberwock attack!

The issue I am running into is how to model pool drain in media res. Should I at the start of the session with say you have 20 damage to your pools, armor counts double for absorbing this damage?

This would model starting in the middle of the adventure with some damage or edge used already. Any thoughts on this? Have you ever started in media res in the Cypher system?

+Jeremy Land not a bad idea. Perhaps start with a roll though. "Alright now everyone roll speed defense as the jabberwock dives out of the sky knocking large boulders onto the thin mountain path!"

Practiced in Armor, Experienced in Armor, and Mastery with Armor.

Mastery with armor states that you replace Experienced in armor, but experienced in armor doesn't do the same with practiced.  Is practiced in armor required?  or can you treat each of these an an upgrade and obsoletion of the former?

+Matt Petruzzelli Yes, but "Mastery With Armor" implies that you don't have to have "Experienced With Armor" first because the replacement bit only comes in to play IF you had the Experienced version first.  That means if you didn't have EWA, there's nothing else to do beyond taking MWA.  The relevant text from  "Master With Armor" is:

"If you select this move and you already have the Experienced With Armor move, replace Experienced With Armor with a different third-Tier move because Master With Armor is better."

I have thought about this on occasion. My original idea was to have an adventure character sheet or factional character sheets. The players take certain actions which amount to attacks against the adventure or faction. Like cutting off supply lines might wound a faction. Converting cult members might shake the mad cult. Etc...
Exploring character as an option for equipment, vehicles, and more...

Ran a one shot last night, The Gentleman Caller from Clockworks http://shawntionary.com/clockworks/?p=710.

Had a lot of fun, and my player had some fun with the crayons and their black and white pregens.  Another player played both the Dr and the intern, verbally abusing himself whenever he would roll low.  "Oli!  Why cant you find any facts!"
