How powerful can a cypher be?

The namesake of the Cypher System, cyphers are one-use abilities (often in the form of items) that characters gain and use over the course of play. Their effects are esoteric and can vary in power. Fortunately, unlike conventional unchanging character abilities, cyphers can only be used once, so even very powerful cyphers don’t unduly disrupt your game.

Which begs the question: How powerful can they be? What if there was a cypher that could create a volcano, for example? Cause an eclipse? Spawn a tornado?

Extreme Cyphers 1 Kieran Yanner

Extreme Cyphers explores the outer limits of cypher power, presenting 40 new cyphers with extreme effects. Move instantly to any location you’re aware of—anywhere. Create a blast equivalent to a small tactical nuke. Conjure a nearly godlike creature to fight on your behalf. Move mountains. Erase a creature from existence. Defeat death.

Sprinkle them into your campaign for a little high-power spice. Give them out as major rewards. Or build entire adventures around obtaining them.

The cyphers in Extreme Cyphers are 100% compatible with Numenera, The Strange, or any Cypher System campaign.

I really enjoyed these super powered cyphers. I think they could add a lot to a session. I wish they had rules for what happened if you had one of these cyphers in your hand when you were over your cypher limit, but other then that I recommend it. I wr [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
