Rules

You can make content that is compatible with the Cypher System Rulebook by Monte Cook Games. You may use the game terms and power names from that book.

Create; don't copy. You are not allowed to copy large sections of the Cypher System Rulebook. Including small rules references and stats is permissible, for anything larger, refer the reader to the rulebook.

Settings

You may not use the Numenera, The Strange, or No Thank You, Evil! settings.

You may create content for use with the Gods of the Fall or Predation setting. You may refer to and describe locations,  creatures, events, NPCs, and similar setting content from Gods of the Fall or Predation (although you may not duplicate content from those books). If your product contains content for Gods of the Fall, you must include the words “Compatible with the Gods of the Fall campaign setting” on your product cover, and “Requires the use of the Gods of the Fall campaign setting from Monte Cook Games” in the product description on DriveThruRPG. If your product contains content for Predation, you must include the words “Compatible with the Predation campaign setting” on your product cover, and “Requires the use of the Predation campaign setting from Monte Cook Games” in the product description on DriveThruRPG.

We may allow use of other settings published by Monte Cook Games in the future, but at this time no other settings are available for use.
