About Cyrad

Founder of Rhetoric Studios, I am a software engineer that moonlights as a game designer and develops a variety of computer and tabletop games. While I started playing tabletop RPGs in 2012, I have designed games since an early age. I enjoy taking game mechanics apart and figuring out how they work so to realize new and exciting play experiences.

  • "Runari, People of Sigils and Artifice" [Discussion] - A race of humanoids capable of casting spells from runic tattoos on their body that believe their ancestors to be constructs given flesh and blood by their goddess.
  • "Patch Changes to Firearms & Gunslinger" [Discussion] - House rules to remove touch attacks from firearms, grant Dexterity-to-damage as an innate feature, and remove misfires. The gunslinger is compensated with new features and the Musket Master archetype grants Vital Strike feats instead of granting free action reloading of two-handed firearms.
