3 months ago – Tue, Nov 26, 2019 at 08:54:56 PM

It's the Holiday Season officially here in a day or so with Black Friday specials everywhere. I wanted to remind backers and others that this is the last chance to pick up their Genesys Project Core Rules and Birth of Genesys: 1st Age at Kickstarter prices. 

The Backerkit pre-orders will end on Saturday November 30th at exactly 11:59pm. So get on board if you haven't already, pick one for a friend, and wrap up any last minute shipping backerkit surveys you have not completed. Still a whopping 10% of surveys are not complete. I will be sending out another set of reminders. 


The Core Rules Hardback $30

Digital Version $20

96 page book

Inside is everything you need to play in all three ages of the game, from missions to progression. The rules themselves are 45 pages long with everything in there, from board set up, gameplay, missions and progression awards.

Included are 7 playable factions! All their rules for each one. There are 2 Humanoid factions, 1 Fey, 1 Reptilia, 1 Biest, 1 Insekt, and one Monster Hybrid faction. Its literally 7 complete factions that you can play as is, or even customize and advance through gameplay. Literally you can play the game right out of this book!

Literally the value of the game is a little crazy on this book.

The Birth of Genesys Hardback $40

Digital Version $30

200 page book

This is the first age. A medieval fantasy setting were you can create your faction from any of the 5 Domains of Life- Humanoid, Fey, Reptilia, Biest, and Insekt. Create your own Monsters, Dragons, customize your spells and equipment, your faction is yours to create.

This book has literally hundreds of traits for each domain and you would not believe the level of customization that is possible. Create a human faction and study forbidden lore to start turning your people into undead minions! So much is possible, and your story is just beginning.

This book contains everything you need to select new traits and new classes for existing factions or one you created yourself. This is the companion book for the Core Rules and in tandem are everything you need to really take off in this game.

The Genesys Project is designed to create just about any faction using the miniatures you have with an innovative set of rules 6 years in the making after an extensive Open Beta playtest that was 14 months in the making. Ideally played with a group of friends or a larger group located at a gaming store or gaming club, this players become the factions in the world, playing and growing their factions in response to each others advancements.

Make certain you check out what is available (there are some gaming aids like templates, a second faction pack (digital only with even more factions available!), and a primitive age expansion all available to pre-order now at Kickstarter prices.

Also here are some previews from the Birth of Genesys....  in no particular order. (While a couple these images might be previewed elsewhere, the backers supporting us from our the Kickstarter here get to see the most). These are previews from before the last bits of artwork are put in. (just a couple left!)

To give a heads up on where we are at, the Contracts with our Printers and Distribution are already all signed and locked in to get these books sent off. 


10 Days Left...... and of course some previews for you
3 months ago – Wed, Nov 20, 2019 at 04:08:09 PM

November 30th the Backerkit will be wrapping up. Please confirm that you have your shipping taken care of even if you have completed your surveys.

If there are products like templates, 1st Age Faction Pack, the Primitive Age expansion, or the game for a friend or family, its the time to do so.


The Genesys Project is a Customizable Wargame. You decide what traits your factions have, and create your own faction, advancing through gameplay. Its a Miniature Agnostic game meaning you already have the miniatures you need to play the game.

November is the Month- Reveals!
3 months ago – Wed, Nov 13, 2019 at 08:59:01 PM

I want to thank everyone with their support in The Genesys Project so far. We are working hard and it's amazing how some things take a little longer requiring staying up to daybreak and some take a little less time to get done. In the end though we are still moving forward and I am assured by Dave that we are still moving right along and on time. 

A couple things that are noteworthy. I am extending the Backerkit through til the end of November. November 30th will be the last day to get in on the Core Rules and the Birth of Genesys at this price point below MSRP. The reason for the 2 week extension is that the pre-order store will go live on Genesys Games.com and is not ready yet. There are also some integration mysteries still being resolved between our distributor and what needs to be done on this end- these will be resolved soon. 

The order of shipping will be Kickstarter and backerkit orders fulfilled first and foremost before anything else. Pre-orders taken after backerkit closes will be shipped later, most likely March. This will be the case  for pre-orders through Genesys Games and through our distributors to reach Game Stores worldwide. So yes, you local stores will be able to get the game, it will be available. 

It is the first priority to me that your books are in your hands well before anyone else. You are the backers of the project and the reason that it is moving forward. So let your friends know..... to get in on the backerkit before it's over. November 30th will be the last day for it.

Oh yea. Now for the fun stuff!

You will recall that several pledge levels were available for backers to create their own factions that would be featured and integrated into the background and lore of the game. Each of the received an early copy of the rules, factions were made, artwork completed. So I figured I would show off the complete images for each faction!

Oh yea. Check our Facebook pages as well. There you will get the most recent bits of info. Of course Like us there.

The Nether Lords- Halloween Factions! + Last Stretch Goal Surpassed
4 months ago – Fri, Oct 25, 2019 at 06:18:25 PM

We did make the final Kickstarter Stretch Goal! So all the Kickstarter stretch goals are complete! We also have some custom dice that will be added here shortly, as well as a spell power template. All exciting news! 

For now though its getting close to Halloween, lets make a quick faction

Today as we approach Halloween I thought I would share some fun scary builds from The Genesys Project to show off the game system. Today we are looking at the a horde army based upon an never ending horde of skeletal creatures to really wreck havoc upon the your enemies.

To do this we have a couple options, but to really push the limits of death we are going to select the Fey as our Life Domain taking the Path of Darkness where we will concentrate on the Sphere of Death, Fear, the Infernal, and of course a little chaos!

When creating our faction we get to select a number of traits that will be our "Faction Wide" traits. Lets jump right to the Sphere of Death to create our an undying army.

Here is the 1st Page of the Faction sheets!

Nether and Dread Skulls

I wanted a Skeleton army that is much more than just skeletons. These are infernal creatures of fear and death. A horde style army that is made up of possessed skeletons moving extremely fast with unnatural speed across the tabletop! They are followed up and mixed in with Dread Skulls who use fear to negate enemy bonuses with a high skill themselves to wreck havoc on enemy lines. Animated Dead cannot control or claim objectives, must use primitive weapons, and have some characteristic decreases (but are cheaper!, much cheaper). Having Hordes means we can throw these into larger squads to overwhelm the living.

Necro Mages

Both of those classes are animated dead, which means they are not easy to control for the player. They rush the nearest living models to attack! So to add some control into the horde. Necromancers are there are direct the fray and give some solid command to the army. Not to mention they cast Dark Bolt: A Dark Lightning spell which does not attack a models toughness! Instead it ignores the flesh and strikes at the soul of the target (their willpower). They are also able to raise the fallen on the tabletop to create additional animated squads of skeletal warriors.


Night Screamers

These are the archers of the army. They are not animated dead so they can indeed control and claim objectives. Their broken weapons (an imbued power) pierce through a point of armor! and the Screamers can see very well in the dark making them extremely deadly.


The Nether Lords (Not shown!)

Existing outside of the reality and the known Spheres of Influence Nether Lords are a Level 4 class! These are very rare in the game and powerful.Of course they wont be fielded except in much higher point cost games.

The Nether Lords, and more will be a part of the Faction Pack with available now for Pre-Order for the Genesys Project.

To create this faction there are many different places to get your miniatures, but Wargames Atlantic has a great set of skeleton warriors you can find here. 32 to a box! Great way to build and customize a horde like this.

We will be doing more Halloween Factions next week!
