This is a well written and broadly useful set of descriptors and Foci for modern Earth. Any Cypher campaign that focused on the modern world and society will find useful material for characters, and a cyphers to work into the game.

My only regret is that I wish there had been more suggestions for Earth based campaigns. While there are several broad overviews, a few worked examples would have really helped me get a better handle on how to use some of this material in a Strange campaign. (admittedly, I am less familiar with Strange than Numenera, so a more experienced reader may not share my opinion.)

Overall, this a really solid product, useful and well worth the price.

(Full disclosure--I received a copy for review purposes.)

Another fine little supplement for The Strange! As seems to be the standard with anything from RCG, they pack a lot of information in to a relatively small package, including notes on three particular flavors of play, new foci, new descriptors, and (especially) new cyphers.

If you're running The Strange and are thinking about having your group spend more time on Earth proper, or if you want to tailor your campaign to one of the three presented 'flavors' (high tech espionage, military operations, or mingling with high society and big politics), then this is a truly useful supplement to have. It's also good for a normal game if, as invariably happens, someone in your group wants to fine tune a particular focus--the line between Idolized By Millions and Harnesses Social Media is a thin one, but those nuances can be vital. (If you want to be sneaky about it, this is helpful for those occasions when you have two players who want the same Focus.)

As with the Translation Codex, if there is a downside to this, it lies in the abundance of material provided! There simply isn't enough time to use everything in here, but you'll almost certainly find something worth your trouble.
