    That sounds really fun. It reminds me somewhat of one of the Omnisphere_Earths that someone here did. Lots of cool ideas. Anything with a Night Stalker, X-Files, Delta-Green vibe is always good.

    Star Wars is definitely a great game. FFG really has done a good job with the system. What is your modern story line Jedifish? I'm working on some one-shots for Necropolis 2350. The conversions are really slowing me down, but it's just barely above modern technology wise. Kind of behind in other areas. So for me, Necropolis is a mix of modern and fantasy.

    I would definitely be up for playing in someone's Genesys game. I've only GM'd so far, but would like to check it out from the player's point of view. The narrative possibilities never cease to amaze me.

    In the old days, I would have said, "Sure! Let's get another group together." Unfortunately I am one of the culprits in making it difficult to get together in person. My kids are at the ages where they are super busy with sports and activities that keep our family constantly running. I thought I would have my nights back over the summer. Nope. My oldest has high school soccer 4 nights a week. What happened to summers off or morning practices? I guess the football team has the weight room and fields in the morning? Anyways, I'm a terrible candidate for GM'ing a group that wants to meet regularly. I might be able to run a one-shot sometime or attend as a PC to someone else's game once in a while. But until my kiddos get into college or driving themselves I'm at their beck and call. Which isn't a bad thing, it just keeps me from gaming. Not to beat this into the ground, but being busy is why we went to Fantasy Grounds. No drive time and I don't have to set up the table or prepare to accommodate guests. A couple of my players are about 75 minutes away (opposite directions from me as I am in the middle). So if plan to meet online and something happens, no one is out their drive time or gas money. Plus when we are done, I can just jump up and run out without leaving a mess behind. So FG has done us quite well, but I do miss the getting together in person thing. Fortunately we still do some board game days/nights. But it never fails that someone ends up being a no show at the last minute. Our get together as a whole group is much better in the virtual world. Apologies for the ramble, but I figured it was worth detailing.

    I had to move my SW game to FG because it was getting so difficult to get everyone together. I've run a couple tiny test adventures on FG to see if the fan made ruleset worked and it does. However, I don't know of any physical groups getting together. I've asked around at a couple of the local stores and if they do have something running it's usually 5e.

    Adventures in Middle Earth: Lord of the Rings Genesys 2.0

    Well their approach makes total sense then from a canonical view. I was trying to remember how the Rolemaster rules dealt with magic in ME back in the 80s, but I just cannot recall and I am sure I did away with all my RM stuff from that time period. All I remember for sure is how cool all the Crit tables were at that time. I even converted them to WFRP when it became my RPG of choice.

    What's the popular LotR RPG now, is it The Ring? Or something like that? Anyways, I wonder how they deal with magic in their version of Middle Earth? Are PCs allowed to be wizards? I would imagine the developers have worked something out that is balanced for the RPG to be popular.

    Titanfall: Genesys

    @c_beck - you really need to stop horsing around and play Titanfall 2 so you can outfit everything! Titanfall is one of my favorite video games, the sequel definitely featured better game play.

    Genesys OGL?

    None of this sounds good for the future of Genesys. Maybe I am just being pessimistic, but I don't see a lot of upside to being able to get things going for this wonderful system. It's a shame FFG is not getting out and ahead of this to make sure the system does not lose momentum. Lack of support/options will see it die on the vine.
  11. Darn! I wish this was on Fantasy Grounds. I've spent a lot of time working with it for the Star Wars campaign I run and the Genesys conversion is pretty good. All fan made, but it's really good for a free ruleset on the App. I don't know I'm smart enough to learn another system like Roll20. Hopefully this takes off more so than the Mass Effect campaign. I'll keep watching.

    My own take on GM sheets

    But isn't that a thing? LOL! If you play Rainbow Six Siege on Tower I am pretty sure it is anyways.

    That book looks very well done. I've never played the video game, but the stuff has me intrigued. Are there any stories out there that bring the genre to life without playing the video game(s)?
  14. I definitely second that statement! This thread is my most watched and anticipated for new nuggets and the discussion about new possible content. It's great stuff!!!
  15. That's great! How do most creators/developers test these kinds of things? My group isn't readily available, so testing with them would not work well since we get together so seldom. Is it a matter of just pitting things against one another and rolling dice to see how it ends up and look for trends?
