    Simon Retold got a reaction from HeavensThunderHammer in [GAME IDEA] Wreck of the CFS Republic   
    I love it.  Moreover, it's similar to - and far better than - the Titanic-inspired story I was already working on for my upcoming campaign.  I may scrap mine entirely, but if not, I'll likely pillage yours for ideas.

    Here are the symbols I use when I'm posting game mechanics stuff on the boards here. They're currently (and permanently) hosted at the Genesys Realms Wiki (which is pretty barren at the moment... don't be shocked! It just went up a couple days ago). You can just cut and paste these from this post and into other posts you make. 
    They're not the best dice symbols out there, but they'll do the trick in a pinch.

    How long after a product moves to Shipping Now does it take before people who preordered get the message that theirs is going out?

    I'm one of the people who have really been looking forward to this setting, and my brain is just itching for it! I hope Asmodee gets the distribution to the US set up before the June date they've given us.

    This looks pretty awesome!
    Looking over your dice roller, however, I noticed one small problem. While the Failure aspect of a Despair cancels the Success aspect of a Triumph, the Despair and Triumph themselves are not cancelled out. Your dice roller has Despair cancelling Triumph entirely.

    Simon Retold got a reaction from Remchi in Building a GM Journal   
    I've been running games for over thirty years now, starting about the time I was fourteen. Since that time, I've kept notes in a variety of ways, most of which have been somewhat disorganized, and few of which have been really successful. Last year I started using the Bullet Journal system in order to keep track of events, appointments, and other important notes in my personal life, and while it didn't last as long as I'd like, it wasn't due to the system not working well, but rather because I just got lazy about making regular updates.
    This got me to thinking, if I could modify the Bullet Journal system to function specifically for gaming, it might be the one way for me to truly organize all my game- and campaign-related notes.
    Do you use any sort of journal system when it comes to GMing? I know a lot of people like to use OneNote (or Evernote), but I'd be interested to see if anyone uses a codified system for journaling their GENESYS games.
    On a related note, because I wanted to start doing this, I went a little nuts and had a custom cover made for a journal. What do you think?

    Simon Retold got a reaction from DarthDude in Elementalist - looking for feedback   
    I feel that might cause another power imbalance. If...
    An Elementalist can only cast spells of the elements,
                                           -and- Improved Elementalist reduces the cost of casting elemental spells by one, Then every spell you cast will have its difficulty reduced by one, meaning that for a mere 25XP (the cost of the two Tier 1 Talents and the Tier 3 Talent), the Elementalist can cast any spell any other mage can cast, as long as they can describe how the elements are helping them do it... and they can cast those spells at a reduced cost. If that's the case, why would anyone be anything but and Elementalist?
