    Android Novella questions

    I own all the novellas, and I can confirm that only the new one, Undercity, has exclusive content for the roleplaying game.
  2. BTW incredible work! This now allows my players to play using their tablets instead of using pen and paper sheets, which makes more sense in the Android setting! If you could optimize for mobile, or make an app, that'd be incredible! Buuut we'll take what we can get for now; totally going to donate!
  3. So unless it's a setting I'm missing, the print version is barebones. Is there a way to print with the selected theme? Or to save as PDF so I can print later?

    Android at PAX Unplugged

    Pretty logical! Man, this book can't get here soon enough. I found some photos of the pregen characters from Happy Hour and some interesting talents in there! Mind you, they might be taken from the Star Wars books, so maybe they aren't "new", but they're new to me! haha Also cool to see some new archetypes, and the favor mechanic

    Android at PAX Unplugged

    I believe I'd read somewhere that these adventures would be released for free as a download. I think it was in one of the "end of Netrunner" news articles... Anyone heard anything?

    Genesys Symbol Font

    Well look at that, I didn't even know you could set "all caps" in photoshop... Googled it, then checked my template.. sure enough that was the problem! Good call!

    Genesys Symbol Font

    Sorry maybe I wasn't clear, but yes I know that only certain letters are in the font, but even if I use (s), I don't get the symbols. Same problem in both your font and the original one. Again, I'm using Photoshop text layers. I don't see a way to set "body"; I feel really dumb right now since I must be doing something wrong. Hopefully my screenshot can help... I've selected an (S) and I set it to the GenesysTweak font, and it's blank. Yet it works in Word.

    Genesys Symbol Font

    I'm not a photoshop pro, just started using it... I'm having an issue here with these fonts. I can type all the letters of the alphabet and they appear fine, but the moment I select my text and switch to the Genesys font, it makes all letters invisible instead of showing any symbols. I feel like I'm going crazy. Any photoshop gurus know what's wrong? Fonts work fine in Word!
  9. So reading about Stunned on pg21 of the app rulebook. Confused. Let's say a Stunned enemy activates. the first available action is an attack action that has "move" listed in it; I assume we resolve that action as 0 move and the enemy cannot resolve the attack due to being stunned? Or do we skip this since it cannot resolve? The RAW say to discard Stunned after a move action is resolved. Does that mean it takes an action to discard the condition (as listed on the condition card)? Or does the app mean discard the card and then do another action?

    More patience required for the Android setting.

    I'm running an Android game. I'm using their excellent Worlds of Android book. Sure it doesn't provide tons of mechanical things, but using the basics in the Genesis core and a little imagination gets me a long way. Of course, once the Android sourcebook is released, I'll gladly use its info instead haha

    Genesys Custom Cards

    Thanks for the info! I'll have to mess around with it I guess to see what is optimal for printer ink! haha

    Genesys Custom Cards

    New to photoshop, great stuff here! Question: what's the best and most efficient way to print these when all is said and done? Convert them to PDF, merge them into one doc, and then use a custom printing grid of sorts (like 2x2 or something)? Are these meant to be folded and fit inside a standard 2.5 x 3.5 card sleeve?

    Netrunner NPCs

    Very curious to see where this goes! I suppose until they release Android sourcebooks for Genesys (sure, The Worlds of Androids is a great setting book, but we need stats and mechanics!!) we can try and find equivalents in currently existing Star Wars books?
  14. Murne's power is based on the current threat level. Since that doesn't exist in the app, how do you use it? Did I miss something in the app rules? Otherwise what's a good workaround?
  15. So when playing with the app, you cannot recover damage when resting (you only recover strain). However, Onar Koma's ability says that when you rest you recover an "additional 2 damage". How are you guys playing this?Are you nullifying his ability completely? Or are you still letting him recover his 2 damage (otherwise, he'll die pretty quick seeing as he has no defense die)? I know the word "additional" implies that you should recover damage first to use the ability, but clearly they didn't have the app rules in mind when they designed him. We played with him allowed to recover 2 damage with a rest, but I'm curious how others are using him?

    Stunned condition in the app

    So in other words, unless the Imp has multiple Attack options listed, he'll lose his only attack action and play the rest of his turn out using a repositioning action? I guess that's makes sense
  17. Holy crap this is exciting! Sure, it doesn't add anything to the tournament world of Netrunner, but as a fan of the Legacy format, I can't believe this wasn't implemented sooner! This product cannot come soon enough! And yeah, sure its price tag is a little hefty, but since you'll probably be playing the game with the same opponent, and no one will really get to "keep" the game once its done, you can both split the cost of one box!

    Well if this news post is any indication, we might get news of the app this weekend at SW Celebration: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2017/3/30/join-us-at-star-wars-celebration/ Says they'll essentially be unveiling the future of their Star Wars games... so news about the app MUST be in the plans

    "Exodus" reviews

    Anyone here read Exodus? What did you think? I finished my copy last night, and it was a much more enjoyable read compared to Monitor. The characters were likable, the action was consistent, and, while the overall plot wasn't too deep, it was a great little "road" adventure. Quite a few touching moments as well. Definitely made me wish there was a sequel!

    The regular version $40 and will hit retailers in the UK eventually Maybe. I've never seen Worlds of Android on shelves anywhere so no guarantee retailers will order this one. shipping cost is bloody ridiculous for this anywhere outside of the US of A it seems. I purchased Worlds of Android in Canada via a FLGS. Mind you stock was very small, but seems it's still available. I'm sure I'll be able to get this book the same way; hopefully you can call around yours and ask if they'll be carrying?

    Monitor Reviews

    Hey guys, just got my copy of Monitor! Excited to tear into it! Curious what everyone thinks of the book when they're done with it, seeing as this is the first novella to be released. Did you enjoy the story? How about the extra lore stuff included in the physical release? Post your reviews here!

    Monitor Reviews

    I finally finished my copy. Like joecor above, I loved the extra lore bits at the end, but found the main novella to be lacking in terms of focus. The story itself was alright, and seeing the world of Android through the eyes of a teenager/young adult was interesting, but things moved along quite slowly and some bits felt repetitive. I also felt the writing in the first half was a little difficult to follow; it felt like the author was trying to beef up the word count by using unnecessary adjectives everywhere. The second half was easier to process. Loved the physical product. Nice finish, beautiful presentation. As a huge fan of the Android setting and as someone who is anxiously awaiting more fiction set in it, I recommend like-minded fans check it out, if only to learn more about the world. If you're not a big fan and are just looking for a sci-fi tale to read on the side, you probably won't get much enjoyment out of this.

    Ideas for future novellas?

    Just curious which settings or characters you guys would like to see fleshed out in future novellas! Personally, I'd love to learn more about Human First, and NeoTokyo!

    So how will packs work?

    Either way sounds good: campaign first, then scenarios, or vice versa. I'm so excited that I can play this SOLO! I hate investing in an LCG if none of my friends are also buying... but if I can invest and play all by my lonesome, that's awesome!
  25. This looks amazing. I cannot wait to get my hands on this.
