    EPISODE 8 - De-mystifying the Mystical (Part 1)

    The topic that is at the top of our most asked about list is magic. The how’s, the why’s, and the why-nots. We here at the podcast have heard the call, and this episode, we set about starting our response to your questions by breaking down magic into its simplest forms. From explaining the best way to inform new players how magic works, to creating new spell actions, and everything in between.Not to be outdone, on Die Casting we answer a burning question about the Basic Military Training talent and how to make your own talents using this as a template. In Breaking the Mould, we speak with the author of the Inquisition setting, Guillaume Tardif, about the setting and how it all works. And we also make some time to answer a couple of listener questions about running the net and creating a mage-punk setting. So, have your spell book at the ready, as GM Hooly and GM Chris de-mystify the mystical on The Forge.CONTACT US:E-Mail: forgegenesys@d20radio.comWebsite: www.forgegenesys.comSOCIAL MEDIA:@forgegenesysLISTEN/WATCH:Podbean: http://forgegenesys.podbean.com/YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/forgegenesysGoogle: http://shorturl.at/DR023Direct: https://forgegenesys.podbean.com/mf/play/a8ajv8/The_Forge_Episode-008.mp3RSS: https://feed.podbean.com/forgegenesys/feed.xmlREVIEW:iTunes (US) | iTunes (UK) | iTunes (Australia) | iTunes (Canada) | iTunes (Ireland) | iTunes (Germany) | iTunes (NZ)Don't forget to drop us a review on Facebook, iTunes, YouTube or send us an e-mail.The Forge: A Genesys RPG Podcast is a proud member of the d20 Radio Network.

GMnotDM ,

Informative while entertaining

A great listen for people wanting to learn more about Genesys or seasoned experts looking to create their own content. Followed these two hosts from their other shows and have not been disappointed by the team-up.

Great show, fantastic hosts!

I’ve listened to Order 66 for years and Gm Chris is a very informative and fun host to listen to, Hooly coming over from the Dice Pool podcast is an excellent choice as well. Great first episode and I look forward to hearing more from you guys in the future.
