  1. Can't wait! Especially as Wrath and Glory has proven to be such a disappointment for me (it has its uses, but its not a true 40k rpg replacement)
  2. Hi all, I'm in the very opening stages of creating my first setting for Genesys: one to run games in Games Workshop's Necromunda setting in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. I've been playing Genesys on and off since it first came out, love the system but this is my first time making a setting to run my own games in so I'm going to take it easy: most of the rules have already been made and exist for Genesys already, it's largely going to be a case of compiling the right ones together. There will be some meatier subjects, namely archetype creation and to a greater extent: the beastiary and the armory (as an aside, I'm already aware of Tom's excellent Dark Heresy supplement and have played many games with it. While I'll definitely be using a lot of his great work for inspiration, I'll be retooling most of the weapons to bring down the "punchiness" to regular Genesys levels). Right now, to help define the setting I've started on putting together the skills list as once that's sorted I'll be able to branch out from there. For those who aren't aware of Necromunda, it's probably best described as an almost-post-apocalyspe cyberpunk setting with a sprinkle of Judge Dredd and Wild West vibes with a side of eldritch horror. I would love some feedback from those of you who have gone through the process of creating your own settings. I apologize if some of the stuff I've included is out of context and a bit plain looking (okay, very plain looking). I'm simply looking at getting a working supplement together for now. If at somepoint I end up with something which works, I'll look at putting together a more professional looking document with appropriate formatting and images. I'm already fully expecting there to be many mistakes and oversights at this point, so any help is greatly appreciated! Designer's Notes: The skills selection was originally based off the skills list for Shadow of the Beanstalk although the knowledge skills have been adapted from Realms of Terrinoth. Chemistry is pretty much Alchemy retooled for the dark, techno punk world of Necromunda. Lore purists will (correctly) point out that in the context of Warhammer 40,000, it should be spelt Chymistry. I've gone with the regular spelling because Necromunda is a very, very different setting from regular 40k where the average underhiver is a lot more practical regards the concept of an Immortal God-Emperor or the idea of praying to your lasgun to keep it happy as superstition or at the very least, fanciful ideology that is out of place alongside the grim realities of underhive life (ssssh, nobody tell House Cawdor). Tech-Use: Given the context of 40k, this is basically Operate and Computers rolled into one. Knowledge (Heresy) is essentially Knowledge (Forbidden) from Realms of Terrinoth. Knowledge (Necromunda) is Knowledge (Lore) and Knowledge (Geography) from Realms of Terrinoth combined into one. Knowledge (The Underhive) is Knowledge (Adventuring) from Realms of Terrinoth. There is magic (or rather psychic abilities) in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. It plays a part in Necromunda but (arguably), it's not the focus of the setting. At this stage I've included a single "Psyker" skill predominantly for NPC use although I'll probably end up having some PC options. This area of skills will likely see a lot of revision depending on how "all in" I think I need to get. Thanks! Eisenhorn Necromunda- Skills.pdf
  3. Hi Tom, I've been using your work a lot, once again thank you for this. I'll start running your games using your current WIP files so my feedback will be sporadic based on what I come across during gameplay. Right now I've got: Page 201 (Ganger Heavy). Under the flak vest it reads: Should that read, soak can be avoided (or words to that effect) with called shot targeting head? Maybe circumvented? Thanks for all you do man
  4. For the type of game it is, it handles DT as well as it can, but there are relatively long periods of time when a player isn't doing anything. In games up to 6 players, this DT is fine, it's long enough for players to consider their next moves and wait for their turn to use a secondary on a strategy card, but at 7-8 players, it becomes tediously long. Your mileage may vary.
  5. Seconded. Did that once too, never again. As someone who enjoys playing the long version of twilight imperium with the higher VP threshold, I understand where you're coming from but there is good long and bad long. Longer does not necessarily mean more epic. Once you get to 7-8 players , TI3 really groans under its own weight. The already considerable downtime (which honestly I don't normally have a problem with) is a little too much with more than 6 people, also, you don't really interact with the extra players. I can't remember if the extra rings grants more resources per player given the extra player count, but generally speaking, more resources per player also leads to a more stagnant game. If I ever had 8 players willing to play TI3 again, I'd play two seperate 4 player games, with the long VP track if people wanted extra length. You'd end up interacting with the game a lot more.
  6. I'm excited that with the imminent splat-book, we'll finally be getting the Android RPG a lot of us have been asking for, for quite some time now! I'm also interested in converting the 40kRPGs into Genesys but for the time being, I think my first try will be a Modern Day, Zombie Apocalypse setting similar to the End of the World book. My current gaming associates have only just got into boardgames and have never done RPGs, so an instantly relatable one shot of a well liked (if, overused to the rest of us) genre should do nicely.
  7. We're going incredibly strongly over on our discord server/R4H. Hopefully I'll see you there, if not, I hope you're able to keep playing these great games!
