The GenIsys Tome 4E

Selected Option:
Softcover, B&W Book
PDF + Softcover, B&W Book

The Power you want with a familiar feel. This is a completely customizable system. You gain Character Points (CP) and you can buy abilities, skills capabilities, and even optional Arch Types. There is no limit to how far you can go.

GenIsys system relies on a 2d10 mechanic vs. a target number. Characters gain Action Dice to add a bit of luck when they need it.

A replacement for the failed alignment system that everyone keeps using is an all new Personality Profile. This includes a link to download the character form.

You remember those games, “you wanted to be the most powerful wizard or the most badass fighter. Then you get up to 9th level and the campaign breaks down. GenIsys Fantasy allows you to take your character to all new heights of your character's ambition. Find the epic power you deserve, play GenIsys Fantasy.

What has changed:

  • The Equity system is now gone. You now just pay CP instead.
  • Ability Scores: We simplified the cost and progression.
  • The races CP cost for certain abilities with a CP-2 is all gone. The colubrine race is moving over to the Dark Races guide for those who want dark campaigns and we have added Centaurs, Cimmerian Elves and Halflings into the core book.
  • There are 4 Arch Types (Not Required). They are Clergy, Fighter, Magic User, and Scoundrel. They are especially helpful for new players or those who want to stay with a particular concept. There are several Specialties in each Arch Type and they each help your character become unique.
  • The number of skills has been reduced from 26 broad skills to 9. They have also been repackaged to better integrate with Arch Types.
  • The VPT system for spells is gone. We have replaced it with a simple maintenance mechanic, based on the Spell Casting Ability (SCA) of the spell you cast.
  • The spell system has been rewritten and is simplified, it is now so much easier to understand. The critical success/failure for each seed has been removed and streamlined.
  • Seeds now give you some supernatural benefits. e.g. The nature school gives you the ability to start speaking with nature and the higher your SCA in your Nature School, the better your communication with the creatures in nature.
  • Reworked Devotions, Rites and Rituals a bit. They are easier to use now.
  • Familiars have been simplified, and you can still have more than 1.
  • Cleaned up the rewards system and made it easier. Added more examples.

Hey George, You can use GenIsys Fantasy 4th Edition. The rules set is entirely customizable. The Tome of the Gods is another book you could use if you need a pantheon of good and evil gods.

Thanks for the question,

If I wanted to run a classic fantasy campaign, which products would apply?

Hey, Troy depends on the product but most everything will be fine. Most changes happen in the core book only. Some effects on other books are:

1. The skills have been condensed. So, you might need to address requirements from paths and other supplements.
2. Magic Item creation will change slightly in cost but nothing significant enough to worry about.

Was there something specific I can address?

How compatible might this be with products from the older Fantasy line?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
