About the adventure

| Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. - Arthur C. Clarke | You are a Parcel Courier of the Ninth World. Throughout cities and remote wilderness, you must track down recipients to serve commissions and deliver packages - all the while avoiding the many dangers that would obstruct your purpose. You're no simple messenger, however: Use your position to trade in secrets as you subtly influence kingdoms and emperors, piece together the locations of immensely powerful Prior World installations and artifacts, or learn where a lord's treasure hoard is so you can abscond with it later... The possibilities are endless. Step into the strange and wondrous world of the Ninth World, where advanced technology appears as if by magic, and mysterious machines of unfathomable age continue to function for unknown reasons. Embrace the peculiarities of this world, where anything can happen and the impossible is made possible. ----- 🆕 If you're new to the Cypher System, it's super easy! You'll have a guide for the rules and character creation before we meet, but we'll go over everything together as well. 🎲 NO dice rolls from the GM when completing tasks! In Cypher YOU get to make the rolls almost always. ----- What to expect from me as a GM: 📒 Resources and a patient GM to help you 🧙‍♂️ A focus on you and your fellow adventurers, rather than a specific outcome 💟 A safe and inclusive space, utilizing safety tools and open door policy.
