Cypher System Creature Deck

Cypher System Creature Deck

Watermarked PDF

Scores of creatures at your fingertips—and your convenience!

Build encounters quickly and easily, or create them randomly on the fly. Then give your players a look at their foes before plunging into combat.

The Cypher System Creature Deck contains 99 weird and wondrous Cypher System creatures, drawn from the Cypher System Rulebook and beyond. When you need to build an encounter (either while prepping your game or at the gaming table), simply pick or randomly draw a card from this deck. You’ve got basic stats (with a reference to the book, for full stats and info) on one side, and an image to share with your players on the reverse. You’ll be astounded at the time you save!


The Cypher System Creature Deck is fully compatible with other creature decks such as the Numenera Creature Deck, Numenera Creature Deck 2, and The Strange Creature Deck. Combine cards from all of your decks if you like, or build your own random encounter generator by choosing creatures from each title to build your own custom creature deck.

No PoD for this product, while all the other Cypher System decks I have looked at seem to offer it? Please consider adding that as an option.

Hi, Robert--

No idea why the POD version fell off this product, but it was a glitch of some sort. It's been fixed--you can now order the deck in print.

Still doesn't seem to be available, and it is now showing as $0.00 for the PDF... (Don't remember that being the case before.)

Welp, that's a stumper. I've taken the issue up with DriveThru, so hopefully they can figure out what sort of glitches are affecting this product listing.

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.
