This is a module for use in conjunction with the Cypher System game system for Foundry VTT. The Cypher System Compendium expands the Cypher System game system with compendia with pre-made items, actors, and scenes. The following compendia are included:
No descriptive text or rules for the items is included, only game terms and associated numerical values. All items from the MCG published books come with page references, which turn into clickable links if the corresponding PDF is created as a journal entry within Foundry using PDFoundry.
Note that the compendia, especially the one with abilities, contain a large number of items. It’s not advised to import everything into a world, as that will hit performance and might even lead to crashes of Foundry. Only import what you really need. For most cases, no import is needed at all.
There’s no setup needed to use the module, but if you want the references to be clickable links, make sure that PDFoundry is installed and enabled in the module settings. Then, create the PDFs as journal entries. Two things are important:
Make sure that you name the journal entry exactly as shown in the table below. The title is case sensitive.
Most MCG PDFs need a page offset of 2. See the table for details:
|Claim the Sky||2|
|Cypher System Rulebook||2|
|The Stars Are Fire||2|
|We Are All Mad Here||2|
The scenes are all ready to go, but at the same time, can’t be customized. The one exception is
Home Scene [Template], which has the overlay set up as a tile, so that you can use your own custom backgrounds. For this to work, your background image must have a size of 4000×2250 px.
Support and Community
The Cypher FVTT Dev Discord is where the development of the system and this module is coordinated and their futures discussed, but anyone is welcome to join and share best practices, ask questions on how to use the system, and share self-created resources for your games.
You can also reach me on the official Foundry Discord or via Discord DM: @mrkwnzl#7407.
