In his lovely review over at DieHard GameFAN Alex Lucard expressed an interest in rabbits and the magic that herbivores might have. So here are a few notes on rabbits in The Secrets of Cats and the form their magic takes…

Running “The Secrets of Cats” in Fate Accelerated Edition

3rd September, 2014 Leave a comment

I chose to use Fate Core for this game because I like the granularity of skills and I knew that I was planning to deal with feline magic as a group of special skills. However, several people have asked for guidance on running the game in Fate Accelerated Edition so here are my thoughts on how you might do that.

The Secrets of Cats – Playtest Characters

27th August, 2014 Leave a comment

Since The Secrets of Cats was released yesterday (buy it here), I’ve had a few requests for sample characters.

First of all, William McDuff has written up some excellent pregenerated characters based on the Black Silver adventure in the book, and you can find those here. You could easily pick these up and run with them if you wanted to.

I’ve managed to dig up most of the scraps of paper that my playtest group wrote their characters Tack, Black Paw, Swift and Nameless down on now and am pleased to present them as an alternative set of pregenerated characters for use with The Secrets of Cats.

Across the River

I took a walk this lunchtime, to a place I’d never been before. I walked to the park and crossed the river, reading my book as I went, then followed the river. I’d heard that there was an outdoor gym down that way and I was curious to take a look at it, but I’d never visited.

That walk was magical, and I want to put it down in writing before I forget.

Antihero: The Badass

7th March, 2014 Leave a comment

(This is a tongue in cheek rebuttal to Ryan Macklin’s “Katanas and Trenchcoats“)

You are an immortal hero in the vein of “Highlander” or “The Legacy of Kain”. Whether your immortality is simply a part of your nature or is a curse inflicted on you by a vampire or werewolf, you have suffered much over your many years. But you have been tempered by your suffering and become stronger because of it.

Now, as your city stands on the brink of darkness and chaos, you are ready. You’re not the hero that your city deserves, but you’re the hero that it needs.
