The lore of Degenesis: Rebirth is brimming with opportunities for Game Masters to create and develop one-shots for their players. Whether the players are brand new to Degenesis or veterans of the world, the exciting one-shots we discuss in today's episode should provide hours of fun for everyone.
Join us as we explore one of the least defined and most variable "Cult" of Degenesis, the Clanners. In this episode, we discuss a few of the Clans that populate the world, as well as make our own Clan from scratch.

The published adventure books for Degenesis – In Thy Blood, The Killing Game, and Black Atlantic – are written in specific ways, with specific orders of events and specific outcomes in mind.

We're here to tell you that's absolutely not the case, and here's what you can do instead.
