Zynnythryx's Guide to Magic: A Beginner's Guide to Genesys Magic


The mighty Zynnythryx gives their insight into the inner workings of magic. Presented mainly as a guide for newcomers, it shows how Genesys magic can be narratively altered to fit a character's personality by giving an example of many spell customizations. Veterans of Genesys may find it useful as a new way of looking at the magic system as well as make use of three new spells, Mind, Move, and Area and a new magic skill, Psychic. Also included are guidelines to create custom magic implements and clarifications of many common problems and complaints with magic.

Genesys Core Rulebook and either Genesys Dice or the Genesys Dice App are required to use this product.

Excellent addition to the magic system and works really well with the Expanded Player's Guide rules. The sample spell customization, new spells and talents, and wild magic are pure awesome.

Gotta say these are awesome, and expands into sections of magic I'd forgotten about (Mind specifically). Thank you for this and EVERYTHING YOU'VE PUT UP.

Great supplement! It really brings out the nuances of magic that the game really needed. Well laid out, and well illustrated. Great work!

Cheeky and fun with a solid explanation of how magic works in this system, which is oft confused.

I am curious if this book will be expanded after the Player's Expanded Guide provides new options for magic.

Probably. I'll have to see what is in there first to know how much of this treatment is necessary.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
