EPISODE 8 - De-mystifying the Mystical (Part 1)

EPISODE 8 - De-mystifying the Mystical (Part 1)

November 12, 2019

The topic that is at the top of our most asked about list is magic. The how’s, the why’s, and the why-nots. We here at the podcast have heard the call, and this episode, we set about starting our response to your questions by breaking down magic into its simplest forms. From explaining the best way to inform new players how magic works, to creating new spell actions, and everything in between.

Not to be outdone, on Die Casting we answer a burning question about the Basic Military Training talent and how to make your own talents using this as a template. In Breaking the Mould, we speak with the author of the Inquisition setting, Guillaume Tardif, about the setting and how it all works. And we also make some time to answer a couple of listener questions about running the net and creating a mage-punk setting. So, have your spell book at the ready, as GM Hooly and GM Chris de-mystify the mystical on The Forge.

EPISODE 7 - The Wise and the Wilful

October 28, 2019

In this week's episode we continue our series examining the various Archetypes in the Genesys Role Playing Game, this time with a focus on Willpower. Whether it be the wise, the quick, or the downright scary, GMs Chris and Hooly step you through the creation process by delving into the ways and means of the Willpower based characters. They even break down the math on two of their own creations, the God Touched and the Treant Sapling, with an in-depth discussion on their builds.

We also talk to the amazing Sterling Hershey about his Shadow of the Beanstalk mini-campaign, Power Play. Additionally we unpack the Discipline skill in Die Casting, and answer several of your games and rules questions in Under the Hammer. As a bonus, we make a special announcement about Gamer Nation Con 2020.

EPISODE 6 - Laying It All Out

October 13, 2019

With an ever-increasing library of products available on the Foundry, have you ever stopped to consider what you're looking at? Not the words on the page, but the visuals. The art, the paragraphs, the backgrounds, and the appearance of the document? If you have, and it fascinates you, then have we got a show for you, as we get to discuss the ins and outs of layout with the ever-amazing Katrina Ostrander.

Plus, we take a dive into the talent ‘One With Nature’ and how you can use it as a template for other strain recovering talents - and yes we build some on the show. We also talk to John Dunn about his Anthrochimerics offering for the Genesys Foundry, and answer some of your games and rules questions. So, buckle up listeners, as GM Hooly and GM Chris take you for another long ride (or is that drive), into The Forge.

We also get to talk talent groups in Die Casting - creating 2 Talents in the process - and sit down to speak with Chris Hunt about the Power of the Vril. To finishing it off, we showcase the latest releases from the Genesys Foundry and answer a couple of rules questions.
