Darcy and Troy are amazing resources for MCG. They speak very intelligently about playing and running Cypher system and I can't wait to hear more!
Must Listen for any Cypher System fan.
Even though it is early on I really like the concept and set up of this podcast that talks about the Cypher System rules from Monte Cooke Games. I look forward to more episodes and enjoy both the hosts.
Speak To Me
This is such a great podcast. It's to the point (but not in a bad way) and it's informative (and not in a the-whole-kitchen-sink way). Plus, the hosts are fun and knowledgeable. Now, admittedly, I have a bias because Darcy is a friend but since she's also a rockstar, she has the experience to guide you.
If you're already deep in the Cypher System, trust me, you're still going to learn cool things...and if you're new to it, the hosts are going to introduce you and you're going to be wanting more.
