Aim a rocket launcher at a group of supernatural vampires, take command of a starship in an intergalactic war, or explore the depths of an ancient lost city.
With the Genesys Roleplaying System, the adventure begins right now!
The Genesys Roleplaying System Core Rulebook is available now from Fantasy Flight Games!
The Genesys Roleplaying System allows you to create your own setting to roleplay in. Whether you’re playing as a posse of outlaws in a weird west tale or an unlikely group of heroes fighting against the tyranny of a mad dictator in the far future, Genesys gives you all the tools to need to create your own personal playground.
Genesys utilizes the narrative dice system, a skill-check system designed not just to let you know when a character succeeds or fails, but the side effects that always occur.
Every challenge your character faces will have them rolling some combination of Ability and Difficulty dice, known as a dice pool, to determine the results of their action. Ability dice come from your character’s unique skills and characteristics, and provide Success and Advantage symbols. Difficulty dice come from the difficulty of the task your character is trying to achieve, and provide Failure and Threat symbols. Picking the lock on an old, rusty door may only provide a single Difficulty die, while hacking through a hi-tech firewall designed by a master codesmith may provide many more Difficulty dice. To succeed at whatever task your character is trying to accomplish, you simply need to roll more Successes than Failures.
