EPISODE 23 - Adversarial Advice

EPISODE 23 - Adversarial Advice

October 1, 2020

When the chips are down and your party is in the thick of it, foes abound in your games. Whether your party is facing off against enemies, villains, thugs, ne'er-do-wells, hardened criminal, misfits, or pariahs - the nature of Adversaries in the Genesys RPG is a universal constant that gamemasters must manage and player characters must tackle. But how do you ensure the adversaries in your encounters balance to that of your party? How do you craft adversaries using all the best tenets of the Genesys System and good game design?

To tackle this adversarial question, we welcome back a legend to the show: the amazing Keith Kappel. With Keith's help, we plough headlong into the process of NPC and Adversary creation in Genesys - with a special focus on the Power Levels introduced in the Expanded Players Guide. From start-to-finish, this in-depth discussion lays out the best ways to not only create easy and balanced NPCs - but using Power Levels to ensure your NPCs are balanced to the encounter and the party they are up against!

So prepare to twirl your moustaches, Gamer Nation, make your villainous speeches, and reveal all of your secret plans to the heroes nearing certain death trapped in your machine of doom - as GM Chris, GM Hooly, and Keith Kappel offer you some Adversarial Advice on The Forge.

EPISODE 22 - Starting Your Engines #4: The Chase is On!

September 4, 2020

When it comes to action in the Genesys RPG, nothing beats the exhilaration of a chase through city streets, dungeons, or a rocky canyon at breakneck speeds. In this episode the hosts tackle everything there is to know about how to run a chase, how to use them in your game, and how to present them in your next product.

We also catch up with the RPG Narco himself, Roy Altman, to discuss the Genesys Expanded Critical Tables in a return to Breaking the Mould. We also answer some games and rules questions in Under the Hammer and give you a rundown on the latest releases from The Genesys Foundry in Stoking the Fire.
 
So, buckle up dear listeners and grab your Ray Ban Sunglasses as GM Chris and GM Hooly ride the slipstreams and into the "Danger Zone" as they shoot off at Mach speed towards another exciting episode of The Forge!

In this the 20th episode of The Forge: A Genesys RPG Podcast, in "The Furnace" we pop the hood as we once again discuss critical elements of Vehicle Combat with a look at Collisions and Critical Hits.

And lastly, as always, we answer your games and rules questions in "Under the Hammer".

EPISODE 19 - Demystifying the Mystical 6: Genesys and the Goblet of Triumph

June 17, 2020

In this much anticipated, record breaking, and epically long episode of The Forge: A Genesys RPG Podcast, we dust off some old boxes in the attic with our final look at MAGIC, as we explore the rules behind Magical Implements in the Genesys RPG and how to create them. We even build several implements LIVE on the show to show how easy it is, using our Post-Apocalyptic setting and its Mutations rules.

After we take a detour as we examine wands in GM Chris' Harry Potter setting, we speak with Jerrad Matthew, creator of the hottest title on the Genesys Foundry right now, with an in-depth discussion about SALVAGE: A Genesys Sci-Fi Junkpunk Setting in Breaking the Mould. Lastly, we grab our cloak and dagger, and stick to the shadows, in Die Casting as we explore the Stealth skill, along with answering your games and rules questions.

So, lock your doors, and get comfortable with GM Chris and GM Hooly, as they take you on a journey to The Forge.
