everyone will have heard the term 'Cipher' and know that people with mental powers exist. The future is screaming down on us like a freight train and every person on this planet is tied to the tracks.

Evolutionary accidents, human lab-rats, progeny of a cruel and trickster god; we have searched in vain for the reason for our existence. There is a vast, empty page where the words of our history should be, but regardless of our origins, we have walked among you for nearly a hundred years. We are your children.

We have the power to affect body, mind, and matter with a mere thought. We can see the past as clearly as the present, and what is to come holds few secrets from us. We can ignite fires with a glance, and we will set the world alight by our presence...

Whether we choose to or not.

The Cipher Core Rulebook contains everything you need to create and play a character with a wide range of mental abilities. From Telepathy to Clairvoyance, from Psychokinesis to Biokinesis; almost any mental power imaginable is at your disposal. 

Cipher uses Broken Meme's 'Vector System' with special rules to accommodate the unique world of Cipher. Characters are hunted by a government agency known as DAEMON, and fighting desperately to avoid a prophesied Doomsday, as they attempt to make sense of their origins and destiny. 

CIPHER: You can see tomorrow, but can you survive today?

*This edition features one of three alternate covers for CIPHER. All editions are identical aside from cover image.

Original electronic
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.
