Couple of years back, I took a crack at creating a power theme for Venture City, an excellent superhero system using Fate Core. For the uninitiated, a power theme in Venture City flavors … Continue reading Mow POHWAH! – Power Themes for Fate Core’s Venture City
Evil Hat and Fate are taking us to SPAAAACEEE with not one, but two new titles: Tachyon Squadon and Fate Space Toolkit. It’s a surprise for me, to be sure, but a welcome one!
Tachyon Squadron is currently on Kickstarter, and has already funded with 33 days still left on the clock. But, don’t think there is nothing in it for you now that it’s funded. If you pledge, at any level, you get access to a preview copy of the game in the form of a text-only PDF! Not only that, at time of writing, a tier reward has already been unlocked to get us a second text-only preview of Fate Space Toolkit! I’ve already read through the Tachyon Squadrons preview and, as a big fan of Fate, I am both pleased and intrigued by the mechanical additions this game is bringing.
Enthusiasm is all well and good, I hear you you say, but you need a little more if you’re going to put down cold, hard cash on this. I couldn’t agree more. Which is why I’ve written up for you my initial thoughts on what Tachyon Squadron is bringing to our Fate tables. Read on to find out more!
The conclusion to Era of the Ubermensch, in which our heroes must hunt a former ally while being hunted themselves by Nazi forces in occupied France.
A great example of the collaborative process inherent to Fate Core, this historical drama takes place during an alternate post-WWII era where superhumans are the WMD’s of their time. Powered by Fate Core and Venture City.
Ran by Thomas Elmeblom and hosted by moi, this Stargate meets V adventure was powered by a slightly modified version of Fate Core.
What would it be like to know that humanity is but one of God’s many sentient creatures? What if magic had shaped the very course human civilization? What if we lived in the shadows of a wondrous age long past and one that has only just arrived?
If you’ve ever asked questions like these, or if they stir your imagination, look no further than the alternate world of Asiyah and Leaves of Chiaroscuro, a world of exploration, intrigue, and magic Powered by Fate Core. Asiyah is a world not entirely unlike our own, experiencing the Renaissance much as we did but with notable exceptions: in Asiyah, there be dragons! Magicians both meager and magnificent ply their trade along side a new wave of inventors. Strange, beings known as celati walk the streets of Asiyah’s Italian city-states, remnants of when the world was young and enchanted.
Written by Megan Bennett-Burks and Jason Lada, Leaves of Chiaroscuro offers a unique historical roleplaying experience in a world that never was, leveraging the flexibility of Fate to bring its strangeness and intrigue to life. Let’s peel open the pages of this unique experience and take a closer look. (more…)
This is different than the last time, honest!
