The Forge: A Genesys RPG Podcast

EPISODE 18 - Talents Also Grow on Trees

May 20, 2020

This episode we welcome back special guest, lead developer on the Genesys Expanded Players Guide, Sam Gregor-Stewart, as we ready the potting mix to help nurture and grow a discussion on the creation of Specialization Trees including how you can introduce them into your Genesys games.

In Die Casting we make good on a listener request to explore Heroic Abilities from Realms of Terrinoth, while in Breaking the Mould we speak with Caleb Smith about his offering on the Foundry, The Survivalist's Guide to Survival. Plus, we answer your games and rules questions in Under the Hammer.

So, don your garden clothes, grab your shovel, and get the wheelbarrow from the shed, as GM Chris and GM Hooly show you how to tend to your garden of Specialization Trees on The Forge Podcast!
