Into the Fractal Vortex: Tales of The Strange -Cypher System
Beneath the orbits and atoms of our natural universe lies a network of dark energy. Those who have learned to access and navigate this chaotic sea have discovered an almost endless set of “recursions” in the shoals of our Earth: Worlds with their own laws of reality, reflected from human experience or imagination, given form in the swirling Chaosphere of the Strange. Worlds teeming with life, with discovery, with incredible treasures, and with sudden death.

Worlds sometimes jealous of our own.

The secret plunder of these worlds draws the brave, the daring, and the unscrupulous—and it draws dangerous enemies from these recursions back to our Earth.

And slowly but inexorably, it draws the attention of beings from beyond Earth’s shoals—beings of unfathomable power and evil from the unknown reaches of. . . The Strange

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The majority of humanity is blissfully unaware of the realities just beyond Earth's horizon but every so often an exceptional individual will become "quickened" and develop a profound connection to The Strange.  This experience activates a dormant spark within their being, granting them superhuman powers and opening their eyes to realms of existence and possibilities they had never previously imagined.  Their quickening doesn't go unnoticed for long, however.  Shadowy organizations and powerful entities will sense their change and begin seeking them out.  Some may offer guidance and assistance but others will pursue them with far more malevolent intent.  The novice "recursor" must stay one step ahead as they learn to utilize their newfound abilities and explore a myriad of otherworldly realms.  The very future of all of reality is at stake.  Will you meet the challenge?

I'm looking for 4-6 dedicated players who will commit to a posting rate of 3 story-advancing posts per week.  Characters will all be native to Earth and will begin the game just prior to their quickening.  They may come from any walk of life, background or profession.  Each character will become a Tier 1 Paradox, Spinner or Vector during the initial scene.

No prior knowledge of The Strange or the Cypher System is required.  The game will be rated mature.

If this sounds interesting, head over to the game forum for details on how to apply: link to another game.

I'll be accepting applications until Saturday at 12:00 p.m. US Central Time (UCT -5).  Players will be accepted based on the quality of their RTJ and their stated commitment to the game.  This will not be first come, first served.
