I gather that work on the Genius: The Transgression fansplat has ceased, since there haven't been updates in 2 years on the official site. However, I'm having trouble with some of the gameplay and would like to see alternate ways of doing things. Is there any official (or at least sizeable) community discussing houserules I can join? Any published variant rules I can examine?

Why not just hack Ascension? A brief look seems to indicate the idea is very similar. – Wesley Obenshain Sep 26 '14 at 5:29
Wesley: Genius is a fair bit more than a reskinning of Ascension. – Oxinabox Sep 26 '14 at 6:11

Genius: The Transgression was developed on RPG.NET; as a result, you'll find the mass of its fan base and development community there. Here's a link to the most current thread on the game; its origins can be found at this link.
