Genesys Expanded Player's Guide


Dive into a world of adventure with the Expanded Player's Guide for Genesys Roleplaying!

The Expanded Player's Guide contains a wealth of knowledge for players eager to equip their characters with interesting new gear, vehicles, and spells and Game Masters designing their own settings. This is the first expansion book that is for Genesys as a whole, rather than focusing on a specific setting. This 112-page book features three exciting new example settings, a step-by-step guide that makes creating your own settings easier than ever, new rules for creating your own vehicles, quick rules for creating your own adversaries, and new spells and talents for the Genesys Magic System to further customize your games.

I assume this was caught already by FFG but page 40 says chapter 5 and Bookmarks is chapter 4 (Part 1)

Are the vehicles rules comprehensive enough to cover a range of settings and scales, sailing ships to starships if you like? Or is it just modern cars etc?

Sadly a disappointing addition to the Genesys rule set. Certainly the book is not an expanded Players Guide, as described. The Book is aimed at GMs and is a definite miss from Fantasy Flight Games. Perhaps the focus should be on material for the worlds/themes already described in the core rule book.

It's not bad. Have a hard copy of it. If you are planning to GM and need some more tools, it's not a bad purchase - just not amazing or great. You'll probably get a few tools if you are struggling, but can wait for a sale if you're doing fine already.

- Better adversary creation
- Detailed Vehicle Creation
- More magic rules
- Specialization trees (if you reeeeally wanted it)

Things I need to review more:
- setting creation

Things I honestly couldn't care less about:
- the example settings

I have the hard copy on my shelf, and I have to say the title is misleading. This product is very much aimed at a GM making his own Genesys setting and only a few tidbits are really player tools. Even as a GM, I found it underwhelming.

I can agree there are more GM options then player in this, calling it out as a player's guide is not what they should have done. Not sure if I'll pick up the hard copy or not (unless I can get it for cheaper), I printed and will bind the PDF when I get a chance to and that may be good enough.

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.
