WWII Tank Warfare in Fate Core

I saw Fury recently and really enjoyed it. I was impressed with the attempt to bring home some of the realities of war from the perspective of a tank crew – a sector that has not historically received much attention. That got me to thinking, how would I handle a game where the players are a WWII tank crew?

Running “The Secrets of Cats” in Fate Accelerated Edition

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.

If this is true it would be a discovery of monumental importance and of course there is much excitement. The salt has been talking about his discovery in the local tavern (the Winking Maiden) and it is imperative that the group gets to him before their rivals do.

GM’s Blog – Union Dues (like) Game – Session 4

Last night’s session went well and I’m still enjoying the superhero fun very much. I’m beginning to weave multiple of the Issues chosen by the characters together and forming them into a coherent narrative (even if sometimes logical consistency suffers to a degree due to the improvised nature of what I’m doing).
