I got into Strands of Fate right after discovering Fate through the Dresden Mike has said yes on this, he's just giving the PDF a few days in. Strands of FATE is a generic/universal take on the FATE system as a $10 PDF as well as soft and hard cover print-on-demand books from.

In Strands of Fate, this power level not only alters your initial character build but also determines which Perks you have access to. Strands of Fate is a much more grounded, delineated version of Fate, which while neither bad nor good, is certainly different from Fate Core.

One of the most significant parts of the rules which bear out how much more detail is recorded in Strands of Fate is combat. From the beginning of the chapter, one of the first tables called out is combat actions. These actions are simple enough, but differentiating melee attacks, ranged attacks, touch attacks and hand-to-hand attacks based on applicable skill is more detail than is given in Fate Core by a significant margin.

While the overall combat structure is similar to other Fate games, Strands of Fate gets down into the weeds when it comes to providing rules structure for combat maneuvers. Fate Core is built on four ingame actions: attack, defend, overcome, and create an advantage.

Strands of Fate 2e just landed, anyone check it out yet?

Providing this rules detail is of course helpful, but immediately the feel of a Fate game is different when operating from a more traditional menu of maneuvers as opposed to building out the circumstances using aspects and a few choices. Beyond more delineated rules, Strands of Fate also provides a number of optional rules and some commentary on how they affect gameplay.

Called Deviations, these optional rules range from simplifying certain parts of character creation to adding whole subsystems, like initiative systems and rules for hit locations. The deviations are similar to some of the expanded rules seen in Fate toolkits, but also involve bringing in more traditional gameplay rules.

Strands of Fate Review

Where Strands of Fate uses all these options to its advantage are the eponymous Strands. It's essentially a crunchier, more codified version of Fate Core. Really smooth mechanics. Am I missing something somewhere? October 20, am UTC Is there a print version in the works?

Based on the short description I can't really see any major reason to get this. What makes Strands of Fate a worthy investment? Is it a superior magic system to the Fate Core ones published by Evil Hat?

Are the super powers cooler or more balanced? Is the cyberware and bio-mechanical-enhancements better than what I might find in one of the Fate Core science fiction games? Or is the benefit that Strands of Fate covers a lot of genres under one cover without conflicts, which makes it more ideal for "cross-dimensional" style games, such as a Fate conversion of TORG or RIFTS or similar "reality-mashup" games?

Areas of exceptional skill are conveyed through perks and aspects. This grows through a very streamlined leveling system, each game gives 1 to 2 Xp. What you get varies but can be a skill increase or a perk stunt.

The auto fire rules and beam weapons are great.

You get bonuses but check to see if you out of ammo or need to let the weapon cool for example. The powers are really well ballanced and clear. Your email address will not be published. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
