I do admit that for quite some time I did not “get” Fate. I tried to. I’ve read the Dresden Files RPG books as well as the FATE Core RPG book. I played in a few games at conventions. But for whatever reason it just didn’t feel I understood the game. That all changed this past weekend. I played in a Dune-verse Fate Core game (thank you to the excellent GM and the guys in the group for a good time) and for whatever reason, it all just clicked somewhere in the middle of it. Now I feel the Fate rules and mechanics are something I can play with and more important to this post, work with.
So this brings us to you. What would you like to see for Fate? What is your preferred playing genre? Let us know what you are interested in by voting in our poll. And please leave a comment below if you want to see something specific designed for the game.
I saw Pacific Rim recently. It. Was. AWESOME! I love giant robots fighting giant monsters. They’re always fun movies. So I thought I would create a few giant mechs for you to use in your Fate game. Would anyone be interested in giant monsters for these mechs to fight?
