About the Host
Christopher has been playing RPGs for over 2 decades, starting with AD&D and WEG Star Wars 2nd Edition Revised and Expanded at about the same time. Since then he’s been on both sides of the screen playing and GMing with a multitude of players of all ages and backgrounds. The first job he will admit to having is a part-timer at Games Workshop back in the late ’90s and fell in love with the Warhammer worlds and lore.
He joined the Shark Bone Podcast as a co-host in early 2015 and stayed on until the show ended in mid-2017. Now that the new Genesys RPG has been released into the wild, he decided it was high time to start doing the podcasting thing again.
Genesys is a role playing system designed for flexibility and adaptability, specifically tooled to work with any setting imaginable. The Genesys Core Rulebook not only contains an overview of the rules and how the innovative narrative dice system works, but everything a GM and players need to run adventures in five completely different settings. Everything from equipment to adversaries, character abilities to an overview of narrative tropes, all is provided in the core rulebook for Genesys. With a system so adaptable and expansive you can explore every popular roleplaying genre, from classic fantasy style campaigns, to modern day detective thrillers, and even to a far off sci-fi future, Genesys doesn’t fit into any one genre of roleplaying, and instead invites players to craft their own stories with unparalleled freedom.
