First of all, thank you for your support and I hope you enjoy playing this as much as I enjoyed making it. 



🔮 What is Crystal Sphinx? 🔮

A conversational encounter with a celestial sphinx containing;

- 3 Riddles

- 3 Encounters

- 2 NPCS/Troika! Backgrounds

- 1 Planet Sized Death Marble!

🔮 Someone on twitter asked 🔮

What element of Crystal Sphinx are you most excited to show off? 

I'm hoping to demonstrate a more conversational way to inform a DM about vibe and direction. Using minimal text, some dialogue, colour and graphical elements to give enough direction to inform and inspire but not overwhelm.

You should be able run this on a 5 minute read through.

No prep, no page numbers, Just good old fashioned "seat of your pants" nonsensical DM'ing. 

I hope Crystal Sphinx achieves this.

The layout is beautiful and reminiscent of a dream scene in an old text based PC game. It gave me instant nostalgia as I read it. The riddles are challenging, but not impossible to solve, for the average Troika! fan. The overall concept is charming and evocative of wonder. I really like this and would love to see it in a physical book in the future.

Thank you, thats a really amazing review and exactly the vibe i wanted to create. Troikas a great game, so great to add stuff to it. I will be doing a small print run, but probably produce more stuff in line with the encounters jn this project to print something a bit more substantial. Thanks again father goose! You and others have made my day today!
