Professions in FATE?

A comment from Marcus Morrisey in response to my previous post about specialised skills started me thinking about professions and how they could be used in FATE or FAE. I’m currently playing in a short Hunter: the Vigil nWoD that features Professional Training as a merit (and this has been adopted into the core nWoD rules as […]

God Machine Chronicle – The world according to Maggy Pike

IC blog of first God Machine Chronicle Session Written by Kelly Grimshaw Reproduced with permission from the author. Ok so my life didn’t work out the way my parents planned it.

God Machine Chronicle – Brians Log: Stardate something or other

IC blog of first God Machine Chronicle Session Written by Simon Webber Reproduced with permission from the author. I can honestly say the last few hours have been the most spectacularly crazy-assed hours I’ve had since that stag do in Prague.

God Machine Chronicle – The Secret of Specto Vale – Session 1 Writeup

A huge snowstorm is howling outside the crumbling tower block of Specto Vale in the East Midlands, early 2013 has seen terrible winter weather hit a country ill-prepared to deal with such conditions; the result has been people confined to their homes and roads packed with snow and ice, becoming impassable to all but the […]

Music for my GMC session

Although tomorrow’s (21/06/13) session is for the players to run through the generation process with me and help create links between the characters, NPCs and other setting elements I have already been thinking about appropriate music that could be played in the background of the generation session and then continued through into the game proper.

FAE character sheets for God Machine Chronicle

Although my NWOD Hack for FAE isn’t complete i’m going to be holding the character genning session for my game on this Friday (21/06/13 as of writing), handily because this short campaign doesn’t involve the players portraying supernatural creatures I only need the basic rules that have already been decided on in order to run it and […]

Musings on Fate Accelerated Edition
