Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment Is it possible to take cyphers out of the Cypher System?
Your last paragraph is very insightful and might be better place at the start of the answer.

I do not see how this answers the question... This is not about goals but about knowledge passing from GM to players.

What is to stop the player asking "I want to know everything that my character would know about X"? Even if this was forbidden, I can see the player getting really frustrated by asking lots of questions but missing one important one, then making a call that the missing question would have highlighted as inadvisable. I am afraid that this is not what I am looking for, although I am happy for the answer to stay here: 5 people thought it good (at the time to writing) so it should stay.

Sadly, I do not have the time to do this. Most of my world is card board cut outs that only get fleshed when the players interact with it. However, if one had the time this would be a good solution.

I agree with doppelgreener's comment: Please add that to your answer.

This is no different to the GM using the lore master as a mouth piece.

comment How can I make puzzles a challenge for the character, rather than the player?
@edgerunner: I upvoted but the downvotes are probably due to the very D&D nature of this answer to a system agnostic question.

comment Roleplaying a multiple personality character?
Too often, in games, we see insanity portrait as an edgy fun trope instead of the real thing. You would do well to do some research and try to understand what the real disease is instead of using tropes.

Why is this tagged dnd-3.5e? Do you want only answers that are applicable to this rule set?

Are you looking for just RAW answers or would house rules be okay?

comment Can I substitute a d3 with a d6?
That's even better than my (pathetic) attempt at making it clearer. You could use some tables but the support here is rather poor.

Please, please, please, write an after action report on the game. I, for one, would be really interested in hearing how it went.

+1 for Unity. Very niffty idea.
