With the Fate of Cthulhu KS in full swing, I’ve revised and updated my Fate System Guide for New Players. The first half’s up on the blog today.
As I mention in the post, I’m one of the Fate-friendly gamers on the Gauntlet. That’s been a running joke because of some of my friend’s attitudes about the game, koff Rich koff. I like it warts and all, especially the flexibility it offers. So I wanted to offer an entry-point overview for those wondering what’s up with the game. (And I recognize it opens me up to the “I hate Fate because of X” comments).
But there’s stuff there for non-Fate players. One of the beauties of the system is that the light-weight mechanics don’t take up too much room in the text. You could easily pick up Uprising, Fate of Cthulhu, or the Fate Horror Toolkit and get great, usable material for other games. That’s going to be particularly true for next week’s post when I go through all the amazing Worlds of Adventure supplements.
