Lastly, it came to our attention that we didn’t handle the colonial tropes of steampunk in a very aware way. We’re going to keep running the series, and we thing that at the end we did better, but we’re also going to say that we are going to do better and be more aware in the future.

68 — Genesys

Today we’re playing Fantasy Flight Games’ new game Genesys! Our steampunk story is set in Steelhearth, the not-London of the setting. We are joined by Katrina OstranderStory Manager at Fantasy Flight Games & one of the Genesys Core Rulebook writers, as our GM.

It’s the night of Lady Selene’s annual gala where the rich, fabulous, and powerful gather to eat dainty pastries and dance. Our three players arrive, each with a distinct goal.
