Nov 4, 2018

With an official population of over 500,000,000 people, you never know who you may run into during your adventures in New Angeles. From rogue bioroids to megacorp executives, a chance encounter could spiral into a world of trouble… or the perfect opportunity to make a profit.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce three new adversary decks for Shadow of the Beanstalk, an Android sourcebook for the Genesys Roleplaying System!

  • Androids, Drones, and Synthetics Adversary Deck
  • Citizens of New Angeles Adversary Deck
  • Runners, Mercs, and Criminals Adversary Deck

Each of these decks features twenty cards representing powerful adversaries from the Android universe. These cards feature all of the vital stats and information that you need for these characters to be used during your games of Genesys, giving Game Masters the tools to keep the game running while introducing new NPCs into your adventure!

The Androids, Drones, and Synthetics Adversary Deck features characters brought to life by the massive advancements in technology prevalent in the Android universe. The Citizens of New Angeles Adversary Deck populates your world with everyday citizens, and the Runners, Mercs, and Criminals Adversary Deck brings some of the most famous (and infamous) characters of the Android universe to your tabletop!

While two of these adversary decks exclusively feature characters found in the Shadow of the Beanstalk sourcebook, within the Runners, Mercs, and Criminals Adversary Deck you’ll also find adversaries that are profiled for the first time within this deck!

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Shadow of the Beanstalk, an Android sourcebook for the Genesys Roleplaying System!

Enter a cyberpunk future and take on the roles of cops, con artists, roughnecks, and escaped androids trapped between greedy corporations, corrupt officials, and vicious street gangs. Outwit your foes, uncover their conspiracies, flee their retribution, and maybe you’ll survive. Who knows? Maybe you’ll even get rich…

Shadow of the Beanstalk is a 256-page sourcebook for use with the Genesys Roleplaying System. In this book, you’ll find new rules for character creation, new weapons, equipment, and adversaries, new rules for running the net, a guide to New Angeles, and advice for Game Masters running a campaign in the cyberpunk future of Android. Even better, all of this comes accompanied by beautiful art and elegant mechanics that can be used in any science-fiction setting for the Genesys Roleplaying System.

The citizens of New Angeles live in the shadow of the Beanstalk. While humanity has stretched its reach to the stars, most just struggle to get by. You may have exemplary skills, but in this world, standing out can get you killed. Do you have what it takes to survive the crowded streets of New Angeles?

Enter a new cyberpunk future with Shadow of the Beanstalk (GNS04), available now for pre-order from Fantasy Flight Games.
