  1. A TMNT Genesys setting is now a thing! It looks to take the older Palladium based game into Genesys. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Fc5EqrMK-JBYet3uhGl36Dz7hhMKIkl0evbzgRhRw9Y Comments are open and I will be looking here for feedback. As of now I see the setting as a 'feature complete' alpha. Development will be slow but I will continue building this setting over time. Cowabunga
  2. UPDATE: The Play by Post Game has come to an end. Several players left the game making it infeasible to continue. Chapter 2 discord manuscript is located at the following GDrive Link. This is not the end of this project. The PBP was an excellent slow burn to help me formulate and think about the setting. I will be holding upcoming Stargate games over VOIP or at the table in the next few months. I will be planning on putting out he first beta setting document as I do more play testing. If you have any questions or ideas, please feel free to ask.
  3. Hello FFG Staff and my fellow Genesys fans, I have an idea, one that I believe will be a tribute to the fanbase and define Genesys as a community driven game. My proposal would be for FFG to work with us to develop a Splatbook (or larger) that collects settings created by us, fans of Genesys. In the book each setting gets a set number of pages to fill with lore, themes, equipment, adversaries, allies, as well as a short starter adventure. Now there are lots of question. page limits, setting structure, copyright considerations (No existing IPs of course), publishing formats, and of course how settings are selected. But I am sure our community and FFG can work it out. If you think this is a good idea please post your support, if you have ideas of comments please add them. Thank you for your time,
  4. The Goa'uld are kicking around somewhere among the gates. I have them far more insidious but low key vs the TV shows. Essentially they are not a villain of the week so when they do show up they will have a big impact. Also things are getting spicy in Chapter 2. I will plan to post it once the group gets though a few more encounters.
  5. First chapter is done. A little railroaded but we pulled through and now the adventure beyond the gate begins. PDF attached of the discord manuscript is attached for all to enjoy and critique. Chapter 1 EDITED.pdf
  6. Hey @SkyJedi Can you change the title of my special rules link? It is currently: Star Wars to Genesys Special Rule Conversion I would like it to be: Genesys Special Rules and Star Wars Conversions It captures changes I made to the docs format. Thanks!
  7. Discord is a chat service (like Skype) focused more to video gamers, essentially you create servers that people can join and text or voice chat. Good interface. Lots of people use it just for social networking or to talk about topics. There is a good subculture for the various RPG games out there. I will do the corrections thanks for the spot. I suck at grammar so thank god for 'find and replace' Thanks for the enthusiasm! As rules get finalised I will be posting them. I have an Alpha PDF made but is is VERY hacked up. Once things get a little more defined I will put out the Beta for the world to enjoy and cretique. I do not think there is an Genesys Stargate setting besides mine yet so I want to nail it I tend to keep my Discord game server closed off. If you are not playing something I boot you. However I will plan to post the game logs so there is some record of gameplay that goes on there.
  8. Nope. Doing it off the cuff. The setting is pretty much being sourced from the Genesis rulebook, setting is familiar yet totally different from Cannon Stargate.
  9. Ill shoot you an invite to the server in a bit, just gathering up more players on the Discord channel.
  10. Some of you are aware that I have been working on my own Stargate setting based during the 1960's. I have been quietly working away at the rules are lore but have hit a road black, thus I am coming to you you all. I have found a few brave souls to take the 1 billion light year step into the unknown, to explore the countless world of Stargate 1963 and solve its many mysteries. From their experiences and decisions, I will not only write the first few introductory adventures to the setting, but finalise the statistics of the may creatures and technologies you will meet along the way, as well as nail down the lore and tone of the setting. There have been lots of movement since I posted my 'Preview' months back on the main board. Until I finalise the rules via play testing I will keep them private. Do not worry, I will get it out to the players, on a need to know basis for lots of surprises and big reveals! The game is now moving towards live play. I will be planning on building a Beta document as play-testing moves forward. Bellow is the manuscripts of the Discord Play-by-post game broken into chapters Chapter 1 of discord play-by-text HERE Chapter 2 of discord play-by-text HERE P.S I will use this post to upload setting content as it is finalised for Beta.
  11. Didn't FFG drop the pdf of the package? Or just the adventure?
  12. For those who got the book. How is the crafting system looking? Robust enough to use in other settings?
  13. Are you going to bake the updates into the existing PDFs and folders? I maintain a Pastebin of Genesys settings and what to know if I need to update links.
  14. Minions essentially form 1 acting unit. Usually 1 member of a minion group acta alone if the rest are taken out. This is mainly to reduce the work load and time taken each round in combat. The minion group act as a single entity, targeting on character or group working a task. Do note the group upgrades their check ONLY if the group has profiency in that skill. This means the group is proficient in spefic tasks and not uberkin based on numbers. The 1 to 3 skills they are proficient with is listed inq their stats. Other than that ya, upgrade based on numbers. In your case it would be 2Y 2G. 2 stat + 4 skill (5 minus the first minion in the group). Take the highest as ability dice and upgrade by the lower value. And yes, the more you reduce the size of the group the less effective they will be. Typically you want to keep them as a group. Narratively they are stock nobodies. Enemies that do more narratively important things are rivals and nemiseses. Minion are just obstacles you throw in the players way.
  15. Good luck with that. I'm been working on a stargate setting myself, though very slowly. I'd doubt we see an official release in Gen. I believe the rpg rights are locked up somewhere. A d20 version was the last I saw.
  16. EPIC! I played a game of the first edition, loved it then and know I am going to run this system in the future. Keep on going K!
  17. Interesting Idea, I might give it a shot in a Special Rules Repo.
  18. Go crazy man! These rules are for all to enjoy! I would just ask you put a link pointing to my work in the credits for your game. Or not. Whatever, you do you. I copy and pasted the images from the web dice roller and made them as small as possible. I will plan to do font work for the symbols and dice at some point.
  19. This. I can see something like Redwall meets WD would be fairly epic.
  20. YES! THIS IS AWESOME! I am doing some Star Wars to Genesys special rule conversions. If you can add it to the list I would be appreciative. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1CD92_GacFtUMmlaFXQaBbvACcKz4eX_k?usp=sharing
  21. Hello all! I wish to have a record of all active Genesys setting being developed for us and all future Genesys-ers. If you have or know of an active project please post it. I will collect links here as well as on a pastebin. https://pastebin.com/7knE7KSv ------------ Known Genesys Homebrew Settings and Rules [GM Phil's Fallout Theme] http://www.d20radio.com/genesys/fallout/Fallout Theme - Genesys (2).pdf [Dark Heresy - Genesys Edition] https://community.fantasyflightgames.com/topic/264258-dark-heresy-in-genesys-very-wip/ [FFG's GenCon Adventure - Terrinoth Adventure] https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/56/75/5675bba2-a5a2-4161-b4c0-eaed85a3d0b7/genesys_gencon_adventure_lowres.pdf [Avatar: The Second Age] https://mega.nz/#F!AkJjEIRK!IeDPFgL1rYe04UcxPRn8Zw https://www.dropbox.com/sh/arzm4yqjtb6vhhn/AABty5R3unR7S3vib9dErgCMa?dl=0 -------- (Older)Known Narrative Dice (Star Wars) Homebrews and Conversions https://pastebin.com/3L0R2ttq
  22. I had my Stargate 1963 setting on the back burner. Once I get my book I might give it a good dev cycle as my players are interested. I will up date as things start moving.
  23. Preview for my Stargate 1963 setting. There is more written than just this preview but it is still being expanded upon. Once I get the lore, species, and first few adventures written I will put out the Alpha, then once Genesys drops I will get a rule filled beta. This is a VERY rough draft so please excuse any grammatical and spelling issues. Stargate 1963 Sourcebook Preview.pdf
