Quick reminder that the fourth issue of the second volume of The Fate Codex is live on DriveThruRPG. We've got a bunch of awesome articles, including pieces from +Mike Olson, +Travis Scott, +Tara Zuber, and more! 

I love this issue because we go really in-depth on skills and stunts, two areas of Fate that sometimes don't get as much attention as aspects and extras. Really great work from Tara and Jon as well!

P.S. If you're not yet a Patreon subscriber for The Fate Codex, now's the time to get in. A little birdie told me the new preview for the September issue goes up in just a few hours... https://www.patreon.com/Trumonz
The Fate Codex - Volume 2, Issue 4 - The Fate Codex is a mostly-monthly e-zine featuring Quick Start Adventures and more for the Fate roleplaying system

Man, those promo images.

A new hope.
From the beginning, Star Wars meant money for its partners, despite George Lucas‘s stated belief that the original film would be a flop. Deadline reports the new film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has big expectations behind it, with the number-crunchers predicting a $615 Million worldwide opening. They note Jurrasic World‘s $524.4 Million global opening... Read more »

I tried throwing money at Walmart today who mistakenly put The Force Awakens shirts on the shelves. Denied at checkout. Oh the humanity.

Misuse of justice is so bad. Not only are the police racists, the legal system says they are not guilty of ANYTHING and then charges people for anything.

Father to two, game publisher, blogger
Introduction
Fred Hicks is a dad, a gamer, and a game publisher. He runs Evil Hat Productions, and does freelance art direction and layout work for the occasional other game publisher. The rest of the time, though, he's looking after his kids, and spending time with his wife. Life is good.

This is Fred's Google+ home. If you want to fight with him in his home, he will block you, not because you're a dick (but please don't fight with him here), but because his emotional health and sense of peace is more important to him than your alleged right to swing a virtual fist.
