Welcome to the Cypher Guide

The Cypher Guide is designed to be an online resource to supplement your Cypher System game, whether you’re playing Numenera, The Strange, or any other setting using the Cypher System Rulebook.

Here, you’ll find items sorted by game, by product, and by purpose. You can, for example, search for character options that are Numenera related or see the list of all of the character Types we’ve ever created.

The listings give you basic information about each item, along with useful cross-references and links to available print resources.

You can use this site in a number of ways:

  • As the GM, look up character options to quickly get the basics and the book and page reference for additional information.
  • As the player, use the list of character options to learn more about your choices and see which ones appeal to you. Or quickly and easily find information you need about your character, equipment, or background with page references.
  • Use the random Character Generator to create ready-made characters for the system you want to play.
  • Use the random Cypher Generator to quickly and easily supply characters with new cyphers.
  • Or anything else you can think of.

The Cypher Guide will continue to grow along with our games, providing you with an up-to-date resource for all things Cypher System!
