Archetypal Species

Suggested Price $2.95

Have you ever looked at the various species and archetypes in Genesys games and wondered how the author or authors decided on those numbers? Or have you wanted more guidance than the two pages in the Genesys Core Rulebook?

Look no further than Archetypal Species. This supplement is a deep-dive into the finer points of creating an archetype or species for the Genesys Roleplaying Game! It includes more advice and pointers for determining each and every number you see in a species or archetype as well as suggestions for coming up with special abilities.

In addition to all the advice, there are examples that go through the process, step by step, to create one new human archetype as well as a new species. Both examples are based on the same design principles but are completely different in the end!

Pay What I Want? Even $0?

Yes, even $0! I believe that archetype and species creation is so important to your Genesys game that it should be available to everyone! So if you want it for free, get it for free! You can always come back later and "repurchase" it for whatever you think it's worth.

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.
