Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Realms of Terrinoth, a new sourcebook for the Genesys Roleplaying System!
Terrinoth is a land of forgotten greatness and lost legacies. Once ruled by the Elder Kings who called upon mighty magics to perform great deeds and work marvels, the land has suffered greatly at the hands of its three great foes: the undead armies of Waiqar the Betrayer, the demon-possessed hordes of the bloodthirsty Uthuk Y’llan, and the terrifying dragons of the Molten Heath. Many of its great cities have been cast down into ruins, and many wondrous secrets and powerful artifacts have been lost.
For hundreds of years, Terrinoth slipped into gloom and decay. But heroes arise just when their lands need them the most. Courageous adventurers brave the ruins of past ages and the foul creatures within to uncover the treasures of their ancestors. The Daqan Barons, inheritors of the ancient kingdoms, rebuild their walls and muster their armies, while the wizards of Greyhaven gather runes of power to awaken guardians of stone and steel. These preparations come none too soon, for the ancient enemies of the lawful races are stirring again, and Terrinoth needs champions of courage and cunning to stand against the rising darkness.
Realms of Terrinoth explores the world of Mennara featured in Runewars Miniatures Game, Legacy of Dragonholt, Descent: Journeys in the Dark, and Runebound. As a fantasy campaign setting for your games of Genesys, Realms of Terrinoth also features many races, weapons, gear, careers, and more—all of which can be found in the world of Terrinoth and expanded to any fantasy setting you create as the Game Master.

Aim a rocket launcher at a group of supernatural vampires, take command of a starship in an intergalactic war, or explore the depths of an ancient lost city.
With the Genesys Roleplaying System, the adventure begins right now!
The Genesys Roleplaying System Core Rulebook is available now from Fantasy Flight Games!
The Genesys Roleplaying System allows you to create your own setting to roleplay in. Whether you’re playing as a posse of outlaws in a weird west tale or an unlikely group of heroes fighting against the tyranny of a mad dictator in the far future, Genesys gives you all the tools to need to create your own personal playground.
Genesys utilizes the narrative dice system, a skill-check system designed not just to let you know when a character succeeds or fails, but the side effects that always occur.
Every challenge your character faces will have them rolling some combination of Ability and Difficulty dice, known as a dice pool, to determine the results of their action. Ability dice come from your character’s unique skills and characteristics, and provide Success and Advantage symbols. Difficulty dice come from the difficulty of the task your character is trying to achieve, and provide Failure and Threat symbols. Picking the lock on an old, rusty door may only provide a single Difficulty die, while hacking through a hi-tech firewall designed by a master codesmith may provide many more Difficulty dice. To succeed at whatever task your character is trying to accomplish, you simply need to roll more Successes than Failures.
