Mortal Fantasy
Quick Preview
Full‑size Preview

Now in both Revised and Classic Cypher System! Simply pick which file you need to download!

Now you can do your own traditional RPG fantasy spin using either version of Cypher System for either your favorite fantasy RPG world or Monte Cook Games’ own Gods of the Fall setting - become a Doomed Paladin who Wears A Halo of Fire, a Gnome Adept who Explores Dark Places or a Fast Thief who Works the Back Alleys with their Goblin Crew.

 Discover a dark and dangerous world, Gods of the Fall, a land where there are no gods and even less mercy. 

 Both PDFs include:

  • Six new Types that let you play traditional RPG fantasy heroes without sacrificing your Descriptors and Foci to do so
  • A mini-adventure set in the Gods of the Fall universe for First Tier heroes or demigods.
  • A new creature, the Nephilim, the precursors to the Seraph
  • New Descriptors and Crews to let you play several Bloodlines along with Goblins, Orcs, Gnomes, or The Hollowed
  • New rules that allow GMs to embrace their favorite Fantasy RPG tropes
  • Advice on how to bring Elves and Dwarves into their Gods of the Fall game (if they ever left at all)
  • Tips on how to convert other fantasy material to the Cypher System

Gods of the Fall, is a world that desperately needs mortal heroes until the new gods come into their own.  And while you hope these godlings will be better souls than the slavers and witch queens that challenge you now -- there are no guarantees.  

"This is a great supplement for the Cypher system and also the Gods of the Fall setting. If you are wanting to use the light and simple Cypher system in a traditional fantasy setting with a sprinkling of the tropes then this PDF does much of the hard work for you. You'll be up and running pretty much straight away. ... Thre are links back into the Gods of the Fall setting, but if you are looking to simply kick out to your favourite fantasy setting then you have most of the bases covered, leaving you to build further from there. A short adventure rounds out this PDF and I really like the adverseries as presented. Formatted and put together to very high standard, this is a 'must have' for Cypher system players." -- Worldplay Games

Download Mortal Fantasy now and get ready to teach these new gods a new level of respect for mortals!

Is there any way to buy a copy of this in hardcover or softcover?

I appreciate the compliment that you want to own my work in a softcover, but the restrictions for community content is for PDF only. The products is also only 40 pages, so I don't know if that would be the biggest bang for you buck.

This is just AMAZING! well done! I do have a question on one thing. Under the Bard section, they get Experienced in armor at tier 5. But I do not see where they get Practiced in armor in a lower tier. Also do you have any suggestions for how to build a Warlock type character using your setup?

Thank you for the kind words -- and catching the typo! That should be Practiced in Armor.

Since the Warlock has very thematic subclasses -- Familiars, Weapons and More Spells -- I'd design an ability similar to Blessing of the Gods. Perhaps base the class on the Explorer Type.

The beauty of Cypher, though, is the use of Foci would really let you tweak the type of benefits from a Patron. Pact of Chains could be Keeps a Magic Ally, Controls Beasts, or Masters the Swarm depending on type of creature the PC has bargained with.

Again, thank you and enjoy!

This is a great Classic Fantasy toolkit for the Cypher System. I changed a few things for my own games, but that's what a toolkit is all about. If you are looking for a supplement to bring over your DnD-esque game into Cypher, get Mortal Fantasy.

Thanks for the kind words! And you get me, tweak away! It's what ttrpgs AND Cypher are about!

I used this for a basis of my fantasy game. Better than Godforsaken, although I still had to make some changes. Recommended!

Really... why is Elf a Type? These aren't the days of AD&D, it should be a Descriptor and that type renamed to something else...

First, thank you very much for buying this toolkit PDF and I hope you find some great bits to carry on and enjoy in your future Cypher games.

1. Mortal Fantasy is a bridge product to help those who are familiar with all earlier editions of the most famous fantasy RPG to settle into Cypher, including B/X and BECMI (AD&D split heritages and classes.) It's always been a goal that eventually those who keep playing the game can eventually see they don't need those archetypes and embrace the much more flexible concepts you can create in Cypher.

2. The Type already has an alternate name in parentheses, "(Wizard Fighter)," for those who want to use it as the "multiclass" character combo. Again, extending out the bridge for new Cypher players.

3. Elf is already a Descriptor in both of the Cypher System Rulebooks in the Fantasy genre section.

The most current, based on the original CSR, is MortalFantasy12.pdf. But you heard it first, we are putting together a second file that will be based on the revised Cypher book that just came out!

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.
