Genesis Round 238 is here!

This round is based on World of Legends Age 104 base code with some additional Genesis specific changes to make Genesis unique from WoL, as well as for testing some new concepts or ideas that may or may not eventually transfer over to the World of Legends!

Please take a read through the mechanics changes so you're aware of some of the unique features.

This color indicates a new change for the current Round

Also be sure to look at the Race & Personality changes as they can be significantly different than World of Legends

Age Start: 12/17/2023 @ 18:00 GMT
