Fate Core Kickstarter Ending Soon (was: Fate Fans are Crazy)

09 Dec 2012, 22:46

So, the Kickstarter for Fate Core fully funded in only a couple hours, blew through all it's stretch goals in roughly a day, and is now sitting at about a tenth of a Million. And it's got 50 days left.

It's also got some crazy good deals going on, if you like reading pdfs and Fate.

Edit: Only a few days left!

They're still not as crazy as Homestucks, but that's still really impressive.

Thanks to my more plugged-in friends, I now know what a kickstarter is.

I've heard pretty good things about Spirit of the Century - is Fate, in general, a good system?

My friends and I are currently running Exalted in a homebrew FATE system. It's a little rough, but that's all our shoehorning, not a problem with FATE itself. We started using it after I played a session of Dresden Files. I was very impressed; the Aspect mechanics feel very much to me what Exalted's virtue system tried and failed to do- making your desires and tendencies useful, interesting, and above all, hilarious. I've yet to see a FATE character whose character sheet doesn't make me laugh; everybody has some weird quirk or ability that just seems so mundanely human.

Fundementally, I think thats what one of the problems with Exalted was for all types; regardless of their status on the hieirarchy - all Exalts are still essentially Human - very powerful ones at that, but still Human.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

You think that's a problem with Exalted?

Just as a reminder, the Fate Core kickstarter is in the last couple of days. If you're at all interested in Fate, they've hit an insane number of stretch goals with a humongous number of pdfs being given away for free at the 10$ level. This includes both Spirit of the Century and Dresden Files supplements, a whole bunch of mini-settings, a book for helping you hack Fate, and a few other things too.

So, if you're interested...
