Sunfall
Publisher: Fantasy Flight Games
by Guillaume T. [Verified Purchaser]

Sunfall holds a very special place in my Genesys collection.

To start with, the setting is refreshing. It's nothing like I ever played. It's not a postapocalyse but rather a post-post-apocalypse. It's not like "appocalypse has struck us and now we gotta do what we need to survivre". No. The apocalypse took place, people adapted and years/generations have passed. It's a whole new world where humanity is thriving despite the evernight and sunless cold world.

The setting has new interesting options, including a revenant archetype and even a demon possessing a host. New magic options are well implemented and gives an interesting twist to the setting. The mix of intriguate old world high tech/magical weaponry with present day (in-universe) blends well with the setting. You'll also find bunch of new adversaries to throw at your PCs.

The author is an incredible world builder. The universe is rich and the writing style is awesome! Right now, the book is mostly artless despite its great layout but I know the author is currently making some art pieces to include in the book.

Regions are detailed with adventure hooks and mysteries here and there. It offers options for a vast array of adventure types whether you're supporting the inquisition effort, engage in political intrigue, scavenge old ruins, and even raid the Hell. You read it right! The humans hold ground in hell where they bring the fight to demons! How cool is that?

Make yourself a favor and get that awesome document!

Equipment Guide

A great GM's tool to design pieces of gear. It gives guidelines on how to make balanced weapons and armors and what kind of modifiers a piece of gear should provide. For a GM, this is the right tool for the job!

Zynnythryx's Guide to Magic: A Beginner's Guide to Genesys Magic
Publisher: Fantasy Flight Games
by Guillaume T. [Verified Purchaser]

I'm not surprised this guide got to Copper Tier in its first 24 hours. It really expends on the Magic section of the Core Rulebook. While this book has some new rules, such as the new Move Spell, Psychic Skill and Creating Custom Implement guidelines, it is mostly about HOW to use existing magic. For many people coming from game systems where magic comes with defined spell lists, Genesys can be confusing. This guide really helps these players — or anyone really — to better comprehend how magic is supposed to be wielded. Even more, it comes with lot of sample spells, all made from core material. The added flavor text makes them so much immersive and will help create their own original spells.

Great job from the author! Great tool for all Genesys players!

Archetypal Species

This document is a great aid for anyone wanting to design their own setting or add archetypes/species to existing ones. It presents a method in 7 steps to create new archetypes/species. By following this guideline, you are sure to make something balanced with any archetypes/species from official sources. It is short yet well made and it even gives you two examples of archetype/species creation using the presented method. A must have in your Genesys library!

Expanded Fear Guidelines: Genesys Rules Supplement
Publisher: Fantasy Flight Games
by Guillaume T. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 09/25/2019 11:13:57

Neat

This one page document makes it easier for the GM to use fear checks. While the CRB (page 243-244) presents suggestions for spending symbols, it is badly organized. Now this document gives you a nicely and properly formatted table with the author's personal suggestions on symbol usage, as well as basics tips for when making fear checks as well as using the Fear motivation when making these checks.

While it was made as a small supplement to Something Strange setting, there is nothing setting exclusive inside this document and it should be considered as a generic supplement.

For anyone running an adventure in which you expect to roll fear checks, it's a cheap and useful document to have.

Something Strange: Genesys Modern Horror Setting
Publisher: Fantasy Flight Games
by Guillaume T. [Verified Purchaser]
Date Added: 08/06/2019 11:46:06

This setting is the best Modern Horror supplement you can hope for. It gives lots of options: gear, talents, vehicles, and adversaries adapted for the genre. It's deep enough to feel unique in the available options while being generic enough to adapt it to your favorite modern horror existing IP. I know a friend of mine who would love to to play a narrative Supernatural (the TV show) RPG and this setting is perfect for that.

I had the chance to contribute to the Werewolf and Vampire talents by working along with Scott and I must say that they ended up pretty great. Using the core rules, Scott achieved to offer a unique and great way to make character with such supernatural abilities.

Great book Scott!
