There is so much getting done. The Core Rules have been through final editing and we are in the middle of the final editing for the Birth of Genesys- 1st Age.
While all this is going on factions are being created that will be included in the Core Rules! I have 3 of them complete and a fourth very close. Lets take a look at three of them!
Humanoid Faction: The Valley Confederation: A group of Merchant Cities banded together. Together they a wide variety of unit types including the use of Mercenaries, Militia, Muskets, and even Mystics delving into the Occult. Playstyle wise the base models are inexpensive with equipment filling in most of the costs to fill the ranks. Elite Mercenaries and archers protect the merchant cities with Mystics able to counter spells and powers from the threats beyond their walled cities.
Humanoid Faction: The Children of the Woods are based off of Germanic tribes and are the hunters and warriors who can call upon their goddess's avatar, the Valkyrie, to come and fight on their battlefields. The Children of the Woods come in fast, can infiltrate and have Warpriests capable pushing their abilities beyond what is possible.
The last one I am sharing today is still lacking a faction name (its coming soon) and comes from the Biests. They are from the Bor Kingdom and skilled in the use of weapons of war. Their Warlords are brutal fighters to lead the charge while their great Stone Shamans stand at the lead of their armies. They are the masters of the Earth and are able create tremors in the earth and pull the stone from the ground to defend themselves from harm. In the distance they are able to drop meteors from the skies. The most ancient Shamans though break away from earth, splitting time itself.
Very soon we will have some artwork to see and more details!
Don't forget that the Backerkit will run through November 15th. After that we the books will move their normal (non-Kickstarter msrp) prices. So if you have friends on the fence, or waiting for that perfect time, its a great chance to get involved.
Oh yea... we are also right on the edge of achieving our last Stretch Goal! Keep it up.

The Genesys Project is moving along at a fantastic pace and in some areas we are ahead of where I thought we would be! Really quite amazing at this point. So what is going on?
The backers Creating Factions for the Core Rules have been delivered their rulesets (over the weekend) to start creating factions that will be part of the main book. As we get closer in the next couple weeks we will be sharing some of them.
New add-ons are in the works! Custom Dice for the game are first on that list, as well as a "Cone Effect" template. These will be available in our Pre-Order Store- linked at the end of the article.
The Core Rules are practically through final editing, which means editing the The Birth of Genesys: 1st Age is about to begin. Artwork is being produced for the books as we speak to aid in layout and design. This means Dave Taylor is hard at work moving things around and polishing the brass.
Oh yea. The sneak preview above was painted by Dave Taylor himself. How amazing is that miniature! Its the Goddess Miniature from Cereberus Studios and although it was not sculpted for The Genesys Project... it certainly looks like it was!
Just because they are one of our supporting companies and just awesome, link to Cereberus Studios Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Cerberusminiatures/
Recall this artwork?
When I get some finished pics I will share the lot of them! Look for them later this week.
Don't Forget that our Pre-Order Store is up! That means you can head over there to see what has been added. This is the link to share!

The first preview for The Genesys Project: Core Rules cover art is in. Your seeing it first here!
The image is a wrap around cover so what you see on the right is the front cover and on the left is the back cover. Our Logo the Infinity Triangle is in the center with the 1st Age represented at the top, the 2nd Age along the bottom left and the 3rd on the bottom right. Behind are mysterious robed figures overseeing the 3 Ages. The final artwork will be revealed as soon as we get it!

We're still reaching those stretch goals!
We are very excited that we passed our $16,000 stretch goal, those updates (more Biest Kingdoms and more Insekt Morphs) are being added to The Birth of Genesys as we speak! So, spread the word and talk to your friends. The Pre-Order store is up and running and we have one stretch goal left to hit! The most powerful way to do this is just by talking about the project. Our Pre-Order store can be found here: https://the-genesys-project.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders
On top of that we should be seeing the final cover art for the Core Rules book towards the end of this week or early next week. I'm very excited to be able to send it over to Dave Taylor (along with the The Genesys Project: Core Rules) for final editing and layout next week. This is keeping everything on track and schedule. We should also start seeing some very exciting previews of the books, artwork and more in the coming weeks!
It is also getting very close to the time for work to begin on creating factions for those Pledge Levels that will have their faction featured in the Core Rule book. Next week we will be finalizing those documents so the work on these factions can begin. I will be sending out messages through Kickstarter to schedule those times and dates with those backers individually. Look for those messages some time towards the end of next week.
Next Stretch Goal Achieved!

As you know we have been continuing the Stretch Goals from the Kickstarter through our Pre-Order Store and Pledge Manager. With that in mind we have already surpassed the next Stretch Goal and are moving onwards towards our last and final one.
Need a link to the pre-order store? https://the-genesys-project.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders
If you have not filled out your pledge manager as of yet, please remember to do so.
We had a very successful Nova Open and did many demos and talked to a lot of people about the project. Now back in the office, work has begun to get the final stretch goals into the books and continuing to through the editing process. So lots of work is being done throughout the Birth of Genesys book. Meanwhile the Core Rules will most likely be sent off for layout next week.
I am also expecting cover art for the Core Rules to come in next week as well! Im really excited to see that.
