The Strange RPG (Numenera)

I've read through Numenera RPG a few times. I really find the cypher system refreshing and interesting. Its approach to rules lite feels very right to me.

Shortly after I read it over the first time I remember some one asking on Google+ "what is one product you wish you liked more than you do". I answered Numenera. While I found the system appealing, the setting was just too far out there. Looking at it as a fantasy setting I found it so removed from my idea of fantasy I just wasn't sure I would ever run something like that. If I have an abundance of anything, its fantasy settings/games.

I hadn't thought too much of it until the other night I stumbled across a review for The Strange RPG. I really like what I read about it. I find the idea of incursions interesting. Looks like The Strange RPG might be my gateway into the cypher system.

Expect to hear more on this.........
