The Fantastic Adventures in Tabletop Entertainment (FATE)
system has produced notable games ranging from the pulp themed Spirit of the Century
, to the hard science fiction Diaspora
, to the adaptation of the urban fantasy series Dresdin Files
, and the high fantasy Legends of Anglierre
. However, there's never been a basic, official version of the 3rd. edition core system. Until now.
A kickstarter was launched to fund a FATE core system
, and where it started by asking for $3000 dollers, as of the closing, it has earned over $400,000 dollars, contributed by over 9,000 donors. Allegedly this is the most donors recorded in kickstarter for a tabletop roleplaying game. Part of the reason this kickstarter has been so successful is the wide range of bonus items Evil Hat Productions offered, including access to a PDF of the core system for $1.00, and a huge range of supplementary material, for only the $10.00 level, plus the promise of a hardcopy edition of the FATE Core system.
The above mentioned games aren't the only rpgs using the 3rd. edition FATE rules set. Other official FATE products include the space opera games Starblazer Adventures
. Unofficial FATE products include:
, a simple version of FATE designed to fit in three pages.
, a version of Tri-Fold FATE designed for fantasy games.
Aspect only Tri-Fold
: a minimalist version of FATE using only the aspect system.
, an expanded version of Tri-Fold FATE.
