  1. Some people here are comparing the upgrade of X-Wing to the upgrade of Warhammer, but they are forgetting one major point. X-Wing is actually fun to play. ...and you don't have to waste $$$ on paint. ...and you don't have to waste time painting. 😉

    Will we see PDF's?

    I was just coming here to post this!

    Alternate Magic Cost

    This assumes the caster does not roll any advantage to recover strain, or they use every single one they roll. If they gain strain from extra advantage that number goes up. Also, that's a base level caster. Once they gain skill and talents as well as the magical focus to reduce difficulties, they should have plenty of extra strain, even after activating the add-ons.

    New Uses for SW Force Dice?

    There's no reason to stop playing Star Wars. I don't know about everyone else, but any new players I introduce I will be using the Genesys dice just so I don't have to get people to learn two different sets of symbols.

    Discord Server for all things Genesys.

    I just installed it recently. It's kind of like a personal facebook or blog from what I can tell. You can put comments and pictures up and only people that you invite to your server can see them. They can reply also. Really just seems like group email to me.

    Discord suddenly wants my phone number...

    Or order your commander and support, but leave the two trooper groups to be the "random" ones.

    Please prepaint the miniatures

    So this means if I want a basic paint job on my Legion models, I'll be able to start playing the game just over half-a-year after I buy it... Because that 3-4 hours I get once per month to play something like Legion would be spent painting instead. Looks like I'll be playing it unpainted, since I would rather enjoy the game with boring gray models than not play at all.

    Have you looked at the fan-developed fantasy conversion, Sky Wars: Edge of the Kingdom? Redshirt Down put magic in there without using the force die, and I think it works quite well. At least so far, anyway! I'm really looking forward to see how Genesys has handled it! P.S. Phil, I wonder if you could run a beta Genesys game for the d20Radio Patreon group! Aren't we covered by some kind of NDA?

    The Runebound setting is where many FFG games already take place. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/#/universe/runebound Descent, Battlelore, etc. They've already developed a rich lore for this world, it makes sense for them to use Genesys to make it an RPG setting.

    Genesys events available at Gencon.

    I was actually going to sign up for one of the Genesys sessions, it would be worth a day trip down to Indy, especially since I haven't gone to GenCon in quite a few years. Unfortunately, I discovered that you can't just buy the $6 session ticket, you also have to by a con badge. Really? I though that was bad enough - then I saw the price; $75 per day?!? GenCon can kiss my gamer-white posterior! I guess I'll have to wait for Genesys to go retail to experience it. Perhaps FFG will have something at Origins. Please?
  12. So then, if not a login, what the heck is it asking for? Channel Name User Name I'm pretty sure I'm missing something here... Also, why is there a "Logout" button in your screenshot?

    Genesys Announced

    Wow, did I just post under the pseudonym of NonekiTheHutt? Because I have done the thing, including WHFRP 3rd!
