About The Forge: A Genesys RPG Podcast


The Forge: A Genesys RPG Podcast is about all the amazing options Fantasy Flight GamesGENESYS ROLE PLAYING GAME (RPG) and the GENESYS FOUNDRY present. On this podcast we aim to help Developers, Game Masters, and Players build custom content and new material for their games. We also hope to help aspiring creators make original work for submission to the GENESYS FOUNDRY. Content that allows everyone at the gaming table to create and explore the settings of their dreams.

On the podcast we’ll discuss the ways and means of building your own settings, help you forge new adversaries, archetypes, careers, gear, skills, even talents with a strong focus on the expanding new content continually available on the GENESYS FOUNDRY.


The Forge: A Genesys RPG Podcast is hosted by GM Hooly and GM Chris, two well-versed GMs and podcasters with over 15 years podcasting experience between them. We offer gaming groups advice, tips, and tricks to help you create better games as both a GM and a Player.

GM Hooly, the host of the show, got his start in the realm of podcasting on the Order 66 Podcast. In quick succession he began the ever-popular Dice Pool Podcast and developed The Forge: A Genesys RPG Podcast to highlight how the average gamer can bring their creations to the GENESYS FOUNDRY. In addition to hosting podcasts he is an accomplished Freelance Writer for Fantasy Flight Games with several contributions already to his name, including the Legend of the Five Rings RPG. GM Hooly is an avid gamer and brings over 35 years of gaming experience to the show. With this wisdom, he hopes to help listeners produce great content to enhance their games, storytelling skills, and table management.

GM Chris, the second host of the show, is best known for hosting The Order 66 Podcast, the original podcast devoted to Star Wars —which covered both WotC’s Saga Edition system and FFGs Star Wars RPG—his podcast experience is legendary and goes back in excess of 10 years. In addition to co-founding the d20 Radio Network, and serving a director of GamerNationCON, Chris has over 25 years of gaming experience, and has created scores of adventures for the Star Wars RPG. Additionally, Chris has created several settings for the GENESYS RPG including the popular Familiar Setting which can be found in the GENESYS FOUNDRY.


Our aim is to encourage everyone to generate compelling stories together, build amazing settings, and potentially teach you how to make your settings publishable in the GENESYS FOUNDRY.

Not sure you want to create publishable content? That’s OK. We’ve got you covered too. On the podcast we’ll take an in-depth look at the rules of the game by dissecting every aspect to help you use them as a framework for your own creations. We’ll answer your games and rules questions, and give you some tips for running and playing in the GENESYS RPG.

Publishing content is one thing, but building a community to help you create content to publish in the GENESYS FOUNDRY or to make your games the best they can be, is our ultimate goal. We have a lot of experience to impart and we want to help you achieve whatever aspirations you want. This goal of offering a "helping hand" is something we want at the heart of our community and we hope to use The Forge to expand our horizons, promote this community, and introduce new people to our hobby. We want to teach, learn from others in the community, and promote your achievements.

This community allows us to bring you new, exciting, and original content with our podcast and via our various social media sources. In this community you have a chance to be heard, whether it be letting us know what you want us to talk about on the show or to engage with us directly with questions about your game or to offer you advice about your aspirations.

However, to build that community we need your help.


For as little as $2 per month—less than a cup of coffee or an energy drink—you can be a direct part of The Forge Community. Each tier receives access to our Community Discord server, allowing you to communicate directly with other like-minded Players and GMs who are passionate about building our community. Most importantly, you’ll have direct access to the hosts.

Our higher tiers gain access to Priority Questioning where your questions go to the top of the queue for inclusion in our "Under the Hammer” segment. The higher the tier you belong to, the higher the priority.

We are also planning The Forge Awards, a special awards episode to be held each year where our supporters get to vote on their favourite products released between August 1st-July 31st of each year. Even better is that winners get to place their winning category icon on their products.

Of course with any project we must keep some of our plans under wraps, but as a sneak peak, we plan to unleash several live plays, crossovers with other podcasts, and even opportunities for you to act as a guest host on the show. So stay tuned for further tier announcements and upgrades.

So, if you want us to help provide you with news, reviews, interviews, and all manner of gaming shenanigans concerning the GENESYS RPG and the GENESYS FOUNDRY, then please consider pledging and being part of this great community.

Thank you. Have a free reroll on us.
