THE CYPHERCAST – EPISODE 22

We have returned from hiatus! We’ve begun streaming our episode recordings LIVE via Twitch, so it’s now both a podcast AND a streaming show.

In the 22nd episode of the CypherCast, hosts Andrew, Dani and Jim talk about the community rules in Numenera: Destiny and brainstorm a new community together: the settlement of Tyrosus, whose inhabitants are prone to shrink down to just a few inches in height at random.

(CORRECTION: The new season of The Owl of Lysia will be starting in August, not July as we’d originally thought.)
