Adventures in Rokugan
by Tracy [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/16/2024 09:05:43

I think that there is a lot to work with in this book and that a lot of the gripes that many folks seem to have with it are with a.) the direction of D&D 5e itself and b.) the fact that it's "not my L5R." It's NOT L5R. That's the point. If you're familiar with D&D 5e and you want a system you know with Rokugan flavor, Adventures in Rokugan is perfectly serviceable. If you want L5R, then... play that.

This isn't just a Rokugan setting for D&D, though. The classes and other player options are unique to this book, and they do a good job of helping you root your character into the world of Rokugan. Some mechanics are a little clunky and take some getting used to, but for the most part, they succeed in capturing the spirit of the setting while allowing players to build from what they already know. There's also nothing stopping you from using other D&D 5e content if you want to, say, crank the magic up higher by allowing players to play sorcerers or have their Courtier take a few levels in Bard.

That said, there isn't a ton of content to help GMs form campaigns. There's a short adventure at the end of the book, but that's about it. There are sections about adventure themes and sections about the great clans, their lands, and some of the things that could be going on there, but Adventures in Rokugan is kind of sparse when it comes to clear adventure hooks. This might not be a problem if you're a GM who is adept at homebrewing campaigns out of basically nothing, but newer GMs or those who are accustomed to having modules to guide them might struggle with navigating a new setting AND new mechanics AND new classes AND new rules without something more to guide them.

It's also worth noting that early iterations of this book were RIDDLED with errors (particularly in the class sections), and there are still some wonky errors that need to be fixed. This is less of a problem if you purchase it digitally here because the digital copies get updated with errata, but it does mean that you should check periodically to see if a new version is out.

Overall, there's a lot to like about Adventures in Rokugan. Is it crazy high-fantasy D&D? No. Is it samurai drama-filled L5R? Also no. It's kind of its own thing that uses L5R as a guideline for a D&D adventure. If that sounds cool to you, you'll probably find a lot of material in this book worth having and trying out. If not, well, D&D and L5R are right there. Enjoy.

Unmastered Play Guide
by Erik [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/06/2024 10:18:55

I just finished reading through it in its entirety, and I’m impressed. The use of the Narrative Dice in the oracles and tables is well-designed and seems to synergize better with Genesys/Star Wars than the Mythic GM Emulator or Adventure Crafter do (though I’m also a big fan of those).

Is it better than Mythic or Adventure Crafter? It takes a slightly different approach, so I’m not sure it’s fair to call it an apples-to-apples comparison. I think it’s crafted just as well, so it’s just a question of whether it’s a good fit for any particular GM or solo player.

If you’re playing Genesys/Star Wars, I think it’s worth picking this up, even if you also own Mythic GMU and/or AC. It would be easy enough to use the Unmastered game mechanics and pick out whatever other elements from Mythic GMU/AC you’d like to include.

I’d say if you’re trying to do Genesys/Star Wars solo, this is a must-have. Or at the very least, well worth the $6.

Genesys Initiative Tabs
by Garrett [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/30/2024 09:26:26

I had heard about the product on the The Forge Podcast: A Genesys RPG Podcast right before a one shot I was running with some friends that were interested in playing Genesys for the first time. It was a really good way of tracking all of the changes to the different statuses and who had boost and setback dice during the encounter, allowing the game to flow much smoother for first time players.

Anarchy in Dragon City - Genesys
by Britt [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/20/2024 21:08:05

Magic, tech, and narrative dice. This game has it all. I had never played genesys before playing this, and I absolutely fell in love. Was a great intro to the game.

Adventures in Rokugan
by Ben [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/18/2024 21:57:21

This is probably one of the worst iterations of 5e that I have ever run. If the creators had simply embraced the hack and slash, high adventure nature of 5e as a rule set and created this version of rokugan around that, it would have been a great product. Instead they needlessly clung to the lethal/ low magic version of rokugan that ALREADY HAS A SYSTEM THAT WORKS FOR THAT STYLE OF PLAY. The only classes that are designed well are the bushi, and to a lesser degree, the duelist. Every other class is atrocious, from game play, to power level, to clunky, janky mechanics. This honestly has me questioning if this was even playtested, because in the taken to market form, it's practically unplayable. If you like L5R, but want a more high adventure version, do yourself a favor and just reflavor existing 5e classes. This is absolute and utter basura.

Zephyr Knights: An Aeromancer Supplement for Genesys
by Kevin [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/06/2024 23:11:33

Really well done. A cool faction to add to your game. At the same time it is also a great template to follow to make your own homebrew factions.

Adventures in Rokugan
by Marc [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/05/2024 21:55:59

take 5e, upgrade martials, nerf magic and set it in the infamous Rokugan: what more can you ask for from a 5e adaptation?

Un libro de ambientación lleno de mimo y cuidado.

No diré que es imprescindible, pero hay que valorar el esfuerzo por ver material nuevo y de calidad.

La llamada de Cthulhu – Tiempo de Cosecha
by ERIK [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/01/2024 03:38:01

Una buena campaña que sirve tanto para veteranos como para novatos, porque nadie se va a enterar de nada en un principio.

Es costoso para el Guardián el llevar preparados todos los PNJ con sus matices interpretativos y descripciones pero, una vez vives el resultado del esfuerzo, merece la pena.

Familiar Setting Sourcebook
by Micah-Shalom K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/04/2024 13:16:19

This is a very cool supplement for Genesys that, even in the years following its release, is probably the most unique to the foundry storefront. Familiar provides a way to play low powered characters that are more often seen as incidental to the "real" story. However, this also provides a good basis for stuff like kids on bikes and coming of age type stories/games. Long running campaigns may be a challenge, but Familiar can serve as an incredible basis for short, focused campaigns and/or pallet cleansing side games.

It's listed as a "setting" book, but a tone would probably be just as appropriate. It straddles that awkward spot between tone and setting and is built to be droppable into effectively any fantasy setting (and includes discussion on just how to do that). It also includes discussion on how to map its materials to particular kinds of stories you wish to tell. Some substantial tweaks on character creation and progression, as well as how magic works, provide a lot of easily ported mechanical elements, as well.

Something Strange: Genesys Modern Horror Setting
by Micah-Shalom K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/04/2024 13:05:07

Something Strange is a very solid offering if you are looking for Urban Fantasy and/or light horror/suspense. Mechanically, a host of well thought out and playtested options are provided across archetypes, talents, gears, adversaries, and more. As an earlier Genesys Foundry offering, some aspects are more clunky than others, but overall it is fairly comprehensive and robust. Archetypes cover your fantastical bases, such as werewolves, vampires, goblins, trolls, sirens, and many others. Adversaries likewise provide a nice assortment of urban fantasy staples, like mothman, sasquatch, and others. I think Something Strange is ideal if you want to run a Fringe or X-Files style eerie investigative game.

In terms of setting and lore content, Something Strange is very light on this, and you will need to actively fill in a lot of blank space. This is intentional by the other author, but is definitely very apparent if you are hoping to dive into a fully fleshed out world and setting. Nevertheless, what is in there, even from the mechanical side of things, very much pushes the imagination to fill in the blanks, so this is not as big of a deficiency as it may at first seem.
