  2. I'd play a game with you if I was still back in KCMO, but I won't be going back home until my family is done with the Military life. Have you tried asking people in the Genesys Discord? http://discord.gg/3vNJa6t It also has a Terrinoth channel. Out of the thousands of players, you might find a couple in KC.
  3. My book arrived not too long ago.

    soak....really?

    Dang you beat me to it. Vampire The Masquerade was my first. I ran a Vampire game for a little over 2 years until I joined the Military. It seems I've always related soak to damage in games. My love of Vampire is most likely why the Narrative Dice System felt just right my first play through.
  5. I'm not sure what you mean. Do you mean you changed the Core rules in your game? Nothing wrong with that. But according to RAW A higher brawn represents higher strength, carrying capacity and toughness. Encumbrance Threshold is based on Brawn. Higher brawn the more the character can carry. P.85 Brawn is described on page 14 as overall toughness because every skill it links to is physical. As a GM I give NPCs higher brawn because I think it makes sense for a stronger character to have a higher chance of success with physical based rolls...not to toss around extra dice. I prefer to use the Adversary talent when it makes sense, but I personally would give something like an ultrasaurus higher brawn. I would have a hard time buying that a very strong man would have the same strength based dice pool as a giant dinosaur. I'm in no way saying your wrong for changing rules in your games. (Rule of Cool) I'm only speaking about RAW.
  6. The Sound Investments talent is in Far Horizons: A Sourcebook for Colonists under the Entrepreneur tree.
  7. I agree with most of what everyone has already posted, but don't forget P.44 Non-player characters (also referred to as adversaries) can have characteristics higher than 5.

  9. Tannhauser: Operation Night Eagle Kindle Edition by Blaine Lee Pardoe seems to be the best reviewed out of the 3 novels, but it only has 2 reviews on Amazon. So I looked at the author's other books and his other books have hundreds of positive reviews. So Operation Night Eagle might be your best choice if you want to read a novel in this setting. Or wait for a sourcebook.
  10. So I'm guessing not many people care about this topic I don't think it's super important, but it can't be that hard or time-consuming. I had to make product avatars for a company once. It took me a couple of hours to crop around 50. Once they were approved getting them uploaded was simple.
  11. Only 10 years? I plan on living a lot longer than that my friend!
  12. I was responding to the comment,"There’s nothing in the book about changing archetypes" Which in fact there is something in the book about changing archetypes on at least two separate pages of the core Mechanics. I was merely replying to an incorrect statement. In the Core Mechanics, the book says there are ways to temporarily change characteristics, which I think lycanthropy fits that rule perfectly. Of course, people should do whatever they think is fun. Personally structured rules are why I buy RPG books in the first place. So I wouldn't change the core Mechanics (Chapter 1 stuff). I do plan to mold the rest of the system to fit my playstyle.
  13. Once I'm done reading Genesys from cover to cover, I'll begin converting force powers to Genesys magic rules. I've never been a fan of the force die and how force powers are currently used. It felt forced into the Narrative dice system. Anytime one of my players use the force it feels like we are playing a different game and taken out of the immersion of the story. I plan to break the force powers up into tables similar to the Magic tables in Genesys. Where each branch of the Force power tree adds to the difficulty. So depending on how the player wants to use that force ability will determine the difficulty. I'll still use NPC Discipline to resist some of the force powers.
  14. Page 33 & 36 both say once you choose a Species or Archetype the choice is permanent.
  15. I currently use Obligation and Reputation in my games. In my game obligation is something the players want to lose while Reputation is something the players want to gain. Over time Duty morphed into Reputation. So whenever my players do something for a faction, town, group etc. they gain Reputation with that group. When they reach 100 with a group then that group would reward them in some way.
  16. Looking to Co-Create a new setting with my players based on the characters they create and the actions of the PCs I don't want to limit players to a single Genre or setting. One limit I would have is that players start out pretty ordinary and at the same power level. For example, if someone said they wanted to be a God and another player wanted to be a cyberpunk hacker. So then we would brainstorm how that would work. Maybe thousands of years ago the God character lost their powers when people stopped believing in him/her. Now the world has moved on and is more tech-based vs. Magic. The God is awoken when the Cyberpunk character hacks into a very influential company and finds documents that imply that the in the past this group was a cult that destroyed all evidence of Gods. This tiny bit of knowledge was enough to give the God character life once again. I plan on having a session zero with the players. Then develop the world around the characters. Whatever the original players come up with will profoundly influence this setting for years to come. So far I have two players interested in developing a new setting with me. I'm starting to see more people suggest new settings vs established ones. I'm glad I'm not alone.
  17. I know this isn't a big deal, but wouldn't it be nice if they used some of the artwork from the Genesys book for some new Profile photos?
  18. They have novels https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/android-novels/
  19. It's showing back in stock now
  20. It's a Weird War setting that is used as an example in Genesys. World War Alternate History, Occult, Paranormal, monster, superhuman soldiers and Mad Science type stuff.
  21. 10 pages per settings. A few pages are explaining the setting, then example settings using an FFG owned IP, setting specific Archetype/species options, gear, Adversaries. The settings are.... 1. Fantasy = Runebound 2. Steampunk = Sovereigns of Steam 3. Weird war = Tannhauser 4. Science Fiction = Android 5. Space Opera = Twilight Imperium 6. Modern day has no example setting.
  22. Some of them are straight from FFG Star Wars. Know Somebody is a Tier 1 talent. Popular talents like Dedication are Tier 5 Talents. Tier 1 talents are 5XP. Tier 5 cost 25XP.
  23. lol, I've made a Youtube page called The GM Source that I will be working on once I've finished the book.
