Sam Gregor-Stewart on Genesys Errata

Although Genesys is all about empowering you to design your own setting and rules, we want to make sure that the materials we provide have the cleanest mechanics and the least possible mistakes. So when errors do creep in, we take the opportunity to correct them and make you aware of our mistakes with an errata.

With the release of the Genesys Expanded Player’s Guide, we wanted to take the chance to update the entire line with a new edition of our errata and FAQ! You can check out the new version for yourself here (1.2 MB), but here are a few of the highlights you can expect.

New Challenge Ratings

The Expanded Player’s Guide introduces a new mechanic for building and making encounters; a challenge rating for each adversary. Our new quick-build adversaries have ways to calculate their challenge rating, and all the new adversaries in the Expanded Player’s Guide have their challenge rating already calculated.

But what about all of the adversaries in previous books? Well, we wanted to make sure that you could use the same system with Realms of Terrinoth, Shadow of the Beanstalk, and the Core Rulebook. So we went ahead and calculated the challenge rating for every Genesys adversary we’ve ever published. You can find them all in the errata.

Network Encounters Explained

Some of you have had some questions about how Network encounters in Shadow of the Beanstalk are supposed to work. In our FAQ section, we took the time to address those questions in a way that should bring additional clarity for those of you looking to make runs on the Network.


And of course, it wouldn’t be an errata if we didn’t take the chance to fix some of the regrettable mistakes that ended up in our books. You can find any corrected errors here, listed by page number.
