Expanded Archetypes


Version 2.0 of the Story Spanner Expanded Archetypes module.

Three new archetypes (The Disciple, The Gymnast, The Rascal) to fill out the options for human only settings and designed together to complement the official archetypes in the Genesys Core Rulebook (Average Human, The Laborer, The Intellectual, The Aristocrat).

Four new unique abilities---one for each official archetype---to add variety to gameplay (choosing one or the other for any archetype). The new archetypes added by the module also each have two alternate abilities.

The Disciple

This archetype represents a character who is a true believer in some cause. The venerated cause may be an ideology such as communism or anarchism, a religion, or devotion to a faction. The cause need not be altruistic. You should choose this archetype if your character would rather serve than lead. You should also choose this archetype if your character has a propensity for strong faith or radical belief.

The Gymnast

This archetype represents a character who regularly undertakes intensive physical training. Keeping one’s body in peak condition is required of athletes, professional soldiers, and astronauts. You should choose this architype if you’re making a character who can run any obstacle course or who fights at a distance. You should also choose this archetype if your character plays a professional sport.

The Rascal

This archetype represents a character who uses wits and guile to understand and even manipulate others. This social savvy is often possessed by news pundits, ruthless executives, bureaucrats, or grifters. You should choose this archetype if you’re making a character who uses trickery to achieve goals and persuades others at least as much with cleverness as with force of personality.

Genesys Core Rulebook and either Genesys Dice or the Genesys Dice App are required to use this product.

There is a bit of a discrepancy with The Rascal. The text indicates a lower strain and higher wound threshold, but the abilities entry below it is the opposite. Which is the correct set?

Excellent otherwise!

Did anyone else have difficulty with the PDF?

Could you elaborate on the difficulty? It may be something I can resolve be re-exporting the PDF with different settings.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
