In Translation: The Strange Character Options, softback rulebook for The Strange, by Bruce R. Cordell
“Translating to a new recursion? It’s not just about visiting—it’s about becoming a part of it. About becoming a different version of yourself.
Players want options—especially in The Strange, where their characters’ foci can shift with each new limited world they visit. Character options are what In Translation delivers! This book provides a bounty of new material and new choices to help make character creation—and translation—even more fun, more interesting, and more varied.
In Translation: The Strange Character Options gives you:
• More than fifty new abilities for the three character types. Explore new moves for vectors, new revisions for paradoxes, and new twists for spinners.
• New descriptors, bringing the total number to more than thirty. Choose from options like Addicted, Crazy, and Slacker (because sometimes a character is best defined by a negative trait) as well as many standard descriptors like Introverted, Kind, and Jovial.
• Dozens of new foci, bringing the total to more than sixty available as characters translate between recursions. New foci include Builds Robots, Calculates the Incalculable, Casts Spells, Grows to Towering Heights, Pilots Starcraft, and more.
• Options for advancement beyond the sixth tier.”
