The Forge: A Genesys RPG Podcast

EPISODE 28 - A Welcome Presence

October 31, 2022

After yet another hiatus, GMs Chris and Hooly are back with another episode! This time they tackle the last of the big six archetypes with a look at archetypes created with the Presence attribute as its focus. They also speak with GM Phil and Brett Bowen from Studio 404 Games about their Mechasys setting book, and dig into the mailbag as the boys answer your burning games and rules questions.

So don your dinner jackets and niceries, as we sit down to negotiate the rights to another great show of The Forge: A Genesys RPG Podcast.
