The Streets of Avalon is Kickstarting Now (2 minutes long)
Hello listeners of Misdirected Mark Productions. I’m here with this short message to let you know about The Streets of Avalon Kickstarter by Encoded Designs. Some of you may be listening to us talk about it on the other podcasts but we wanted to give you the short version. We’re raising money to bring to life a Fafard and The Grey Mouser inspired, urban swords and sorcery city of epic proportions. If we raise enough, this book will contain a gazetteer of the city of Avalon, a GMing section which provides advice on how to make the city of Avalon come to life along with what gives a Streets of Avalon game its distinct feel. There will be information about neighborhoods as adventure locations, having a base of operations, and a number of adventure types: including but not limited to Political Intrigue, Heists, and Monster Hunting. There will also be some example neighborhoods which you can use to run Avalon adventures right out of the book, and tons of flavor in the form of art, sidebars, flash fiction, letters, and quotes from the people who live on the streets of Avalon. The PDF is only $10. It’ll be $15 when it goes to drive thru butwe want to give the people who get in on this book early a real deal. The physical copy is $24 but it’s fulfilled through drive thru which should make the shipping cost a little easier on some of you folks outside of the United States. We also have some stretch goals, many which will enhance the city of Avalon and make this game even more playable with the 5th edition of the most popular RPG in the world. Some of the stretch goals include extra classes, a PDF supplement for Guns in Avalon, art enhancements to the book, and adventures by Avalon creator Brett B of Gaming & BS. Thank you for taking the time to listen and I hope you check out the kickstarter. You can find it by going to tinyurl.com/StreetsofAvalon. I hope you stay safe in the light of the lamps and I know we all look forward to running with you Rogues. The Streets of Avalon is an Encoded Designs project the publishing arm of Misdirected Mark Productions.

Cypher Speak Episode 41: Hear us craft something special!
In this second episode of our two part series, Darcy and Troy talk about using the new crafting rules from Numenera Destiny. Shout Out to Bone, Stone, and Obsidian Special Update From the Designer: Subtasks are tasks like any other task. They’re just referred to as subtasks to signal that they’re each part of a larger series of related tasks one has to make in order to craft something. So anything that modifies a task modifies a subtask. (i.e. training in crafting numenera eases every crafting numenera subtask you attempt.) We got this wrong in the episode, we’ll also be talking about it in our next episode briefly.
