I'm Carol Darnell. I'm an editor who does a little writing too. I'm currently the Editing Manager for Third Eye Games. I also work (and have worked) for Hex, Evil Beagle, BlackWyrm, and Onyx Path. 
I've been a gamer for about 20 years, and a GM for 15. I love Indie games mostly because of the fearlessness in exploring a multitude of themes and different mechanics, especially narrative.
I'm also a co-host on All Games Considered.

Thank you for inviting me to the community!

Very kind words from my very talented friend +Jerry Grayson​ after a conversation we had earlier today. 
GOOD EDITING GOES UNNOTICED
A good friend of mine +Carol Darnell said this to me recently and she’s right. She has a ton of credits to her name on a lot of popular books but unlike a writer or a popular artist you don’t formally get any kudos.

Check out her editing resume https://caroldarnell.wordpress.com/  It isn’t as sexy as doing an awesome cover or coming up with a mind-blowing dice mechanic but it’s just as important, maybe more so. 
What’s cool about carol is that she not only edits she regular runs and plays games. She knows what an RPG is and what it is supposed to do and she uses this insight to not only clean up grammar but to help get the writers point across. 

Carol is also one third of one of my favorite podcast - All Games Considered http://www.agcpodcast.info/
It a great show so you should check it out. 

I think everyone should thank her for making our gaming experience so awesome and easy to read.

Mulling over the feasibility of a powerful NPC wizard being able to separate the two halves of a scion NPC, particularly a Changeling.  Starts out as temporary, with the fae half not being able to leave the NeverNever unless summoned - similar to other summoned creatures from there. It would have memories and some abilities, but no soul, that would be the human half's.  Re-integration is possible, but after a certain time it could 1. Not be possible, too much change between the two halves for a proper re-integration, or 2. One of  the halves (or both) could decide this is what they want.  Complication for a PC: the NPC is his wife.

Thoughts?

I got to play in one of these sessions run by Sean himself, and it was so much fun!  Can't wait to play again.

The review has been posted at http://www.agcpodcast.info for anyone who is interested.
Running through my rough-draft review of Fate Core - I would like to pose a question: Do you think there is an ideal number of players for a Fate game?  Do you feel that larger games would bog down the world/setting creation process?  

Of course any large game is going to be taxing, but I'm thinking more about the relationships, and a bit of "too-many-cooks" as well.

While it could make sense that all the characters do know each other to some extent, would they know each other well enough to add to each other's background from a mechanical / Aspect perspective?

Sure, characters A, B and C could know each other, but what if D only knows A pretty well?  That could work, but when you get to F or G, does it become too unwieldy? 

I'm thinking that you could at that point have two groups that are coming from different areas of the world/setting, and each group could have participated in creating their own area, complete with current and impending issues, and other factions, being brought together to fight a bigger evil.

What does everyone think?
