The Genesys RPG system is built to handle any setting and style of game you want to run in. But that's not to say that once you've got the base book, you're fully done.

Fantasy Flight Previews Different Tones in Genesys

No, the headline doesn't mean that we're taking a look at the different bardic classes in the game. Here, tone refers to how the game comes across for players. Is it light-hearted and comedic? Is it dark and brooding? Is it gritty? When a system says that it's universal, it should be able to cater to all of these. But how does the game go about doing such? Well, take a look.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Social Encounters in Genesys RPG

Sure, when many people think of playing in an RPG, they think of heading down into the dungeon and smacking around some goblins or kobolds, grabbing the loot, and heading back to town, but what about when you do make it back to town? Or when you've got to get papers from the local nobility to travel across his lands? Or so many other situations that can't be solved with, "I swing my sword at it"? Social encounters are just as important as the combat ones (and are honestly some of my favorite parts of games). In this preview from Genesys, Fantasy Flight's upcoming RPG, we get a look at how these social encounters work within the rules.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Character Creation in Genesys RPG

The first thing you do when playing in an RPG is create your character (unless you're the GM, in which case you're creating everything else in the world, but that's getting ahead of ourselves). Not much of an RPG if you don't have a character to role (roll) as. It's a pretty important part of things. And that's why Fantasy Flight is giving us a preview of just how that'll work in Genesys, their new universal RPG system they're working on.
