    Have you looked into Realms of Terrinoth? It’s the fantasy supplement for Genesys. Or, if you prefer, 5e GCRB has some of the fantasy species in the example fantasy chapter. It’s just that RoT has three or so ‘sub-species’ for each species, so it gives you more options.
  2. I’ve been working on vehicle creation for Genesys, and noticed something interesting. For the most part, vehicles have a cap of 1 weapon per silhouette. Large vehicles (silhouette 5+) instead have a cap of one weapon emplacement per silhouette. An emplacement, it seems, can have up to 15 identical weapons in one fire arc. of course, some military ships break this cap—most notably the ISD and the LAAT/I. But that’s could be a “military chassis” that increases the limit by 50% (which would allow for about 80% of the vehicles I checked this against).
  3. No, it’s only applies once. If the target is two or more Silhouette smaller, increase Difficulty once (add one purple die). It doesnt matter if it’s a sil8 shooting a time a sil6 or a sil1, it’s still just one extra purple. On the flip side, of you’re target is two or more Silhouette larger, reduce the difficulty by 1 (remove a purple die).

    Fallout Genesys Hack

    That’s not what Astrocartography is. “The Astrocartography skill covers the understanding, use, and development of star charts, including mapping undiscovered systems. It also covers your character plotting courses for interstellar travel.“ (CRB57). If you want map reading and compass use, that’s Survival.

    Discord Dev Chat, Part 1

    Hey everyone! A little bit ago the admin team of the Discord server, Facebook Group and subreddit had on FFG's own Sam Stewart, Tim Huckleberry and Tim Cox to discuss Genesys. For those who were not able to attend the live chat, I now happily give you part 1 (of 2) of that chat. Enjoy! A special thanks to @SkyJedi , @Korlall, @drainsmith and @eowarion for their participation in this. Great team! https://excess-advantage.com/18

    Mounts and Encumbrance

    Why not? It’s encumbrance, not carrying weight. Encumbrance measures the bulk of an item, and a sil0 creature doesn’t have that much less “bulk-capacity” than a sil1. in addition, if a sil0 creature didn’t use the 5+Br rule, it would be noted in the Small ability description. It’s not, and thus there are no special encumbrance rules for them.

    Discord Dev Chat

    Nothing new was discussed, no. But it’s was a good chat talking about design decisions, personal input on the game and the like. FFG staff are not allowed to talk about things that have yet to be announced, so it was all just discussion about exisiting things.

    Dice Probability Question

    Don’t forget the incredible AnyDice page. You can change around your dice pool, the set it to show you ‘at least’ to find out the chance of success.

    Custom Rules/Talents for Vehicle Repair

    Three things come to mind immediately: The Aid manoeuvre. One character can do this twice to add two boost dice to the carpenter’s check. Two assistants means four boost dice! That'll help for sure Create a tier 1 ranked talent based off of Surgeon (CRB74) that increases HTT recovered by your number of ranks Allow your carpenter to spend one, maybe two, Triumphs to make the roll again in the next round. Akin to how the regen potion in Terrinoth works
