Re: Fate 3.0 generic campaign framework

Haven't had the chance to use this yet (life keeps interfering with game time) but I like it just from setting up the campaign in it. One thing that maybe I'm just over looking - when making a skill check, is there a way to input a modifier? Nope. The design philosophy was to keep things as simple ...

Re: Fate 3.0 generic campaign framework

Hey. I'm curious about running Diaspora online, so I thought I'd check out your framework. However, it crashes every time I launch it. Something with the splash screen. When I tried with the latest build I got an error message, and when I tried going back to the build used in the framework (76 I th...

Re: Fate 3.0 generic campaign framework

Apologies to everyone for not being around the last couple of months. Real Life(TM) has been a female-canine-in-heat. So I have been running Dresden files on this for a bit. The only hitch seems to be that stress is handled slightly different in Dresden then in normal Fate 3.0 Instead of filling 3 s...

Random Starsystem Generator for space opera RPGs (for IPPro)

I thought I'd share the star system/sector generator I've been working on for Inspiration Pad Pro. Sector2 Random Generator (Inspiration Pad Pro can be found at m) It's an amalgam of a number of SF system generators, cherry picked for the best bits and seasoned to my personal taste. It's definitely ...

Re: Fate 3.0 generic campaign framework

After a short test run and three weeks into a regular SBA campaign using this framework, here's what I've found so far. i) BUG adding temporary aspect doesn't display the aspect name. FIXED ii) GM needs a way to easily give a token a FATE point. FIXED extra utility icon on tokensheet iii) Roll resul...

Re: Fate 3.0 generic campaign framework

You're welcome Robyn, and best of luck with the game. Dresden is one of the few FATE games I don't have, but I'd appreciate feedback if you come across anything in the framework that needs adapting for Dresden. I can't promise to implement it, but if it's clearly defined and not too complicated I mi...

Re: Fate 3.0 generic campaign framework

Ah Strands. I love the concept and like a lot of the ideas, but they've turned so many things upside-down from "classic" Fate 3.0 it's just too hard to support it properly as part of a "Generic Fate" framework. I think you could futz it through though, by making a separate track ...

Re: Fate 3.0 generic campaign framework

Nope. We're still playing a FATE driven game and have yet to run into anything that needs updating/fixing.

Was there anything in particular you were needing?

Re: Wizards VTT (re)announced

I think MT could really stay ahead of the integration piece if it had some sort of built in webservice-call macros that could be used within MT to call the compendium. As cool as regexp parsers are for a lot of things, nothing would be better than taking advantage of the XML from within a framework...

Re: Wizards VTT (re)announced

If we sold Maptool, I would be a lot worried right now, but since MT is free, I am not. Let's face it, you're going to lose a lot of potential "sales" to the WOTC VT for the simple reason that it's "Official" and Maptool isn't. Crazy, I know, but true. On the other hand, for all...

Re: Fate 3.0 generic campaign framework

Hmm I'm a little suprised this hasn't drawn at least some comment, given FATE's status as a bit of an internet RPG darling. Playtest results - I ran the first live game session with this tonight. Couple of observations. 1) No explicit method for rolling skills you don't have. Guess keeping that raw ...

[Fate v3] Fate Generic Campaign Framework

The Fate 3.0 generic framework I've been working on is now ready. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6908881/FATEWIP.png Fate_b76_095.cmpgn It's a framework to support play with the various versions of Fate 3.0 . Players are able to do everything from the character sheet. My personal preferred version of Fate ...

Re: Scripting/planning ahead for colorblind gamers...

It's really wierd for me and hard to explain at times. For example, on this page I see Font colour to the right (hey, it's spelt correctly). fontcolour.png Take the top row. 3rd column. when I compare it to the 4th column, I can't tell the difference. However when I compare it to the 5th column, I ...

Re: Scripting/planning ahead for colorblind gamers...

I'm red-green colourblind, have absolutely no problem distinguishing between the red and green buttons, and the first two sets of images do *not* look the same to me. (Skester, were you joking when you said they looked the same, or is your colour-blindness much more severe than mine?) The biggest pr...

Re: Fun with Exponents

I think the confusion comes from the fact that in the expression "-5^2", the minus sign isn't really an operator, but an inherent part of the discrete number "-5".
