+Robert Miller, I've printed out, laminated and cut the Aspect Cards.  They turned out pretty well - at four to a sheet they end up approximately 3.5 x 5 with the "box" being about 2.5 x 4.  I didn't print anything on the back, so the other side is blank/white.  The only issue I had was trying to round the corner; I ended up rounding off more than the original image shows for the curve.

That's good that it still has some of its quality. I'll have to keep that in mind for future printable items.

Fate Accelerated Edition (FAE)  - 
 
Cross posted.
 
Was just looking over the post and doc collecting alternate FAE approaches that +Christopher Allen had made, and it popped into my head that Greg Stolze's A Dirty World could be an interesting adaptation for FAE.   It has six Identities which could be used as approaches:

Patience
Cunning
Vigor
Grace
Understanding
Persuasion

Or you could go deeper/more detailed with the 12 related Qualities.  Check out the character sheet from the link below for descriptions of the Identities, etc.

As with A Dirty World, you could limit the max total rating between a pair of Identities/Approaches and potentially have them shift around as an alternate form of consequences... that part would require more thought for how to best adapt it.

I loved the "A Dirty World" mechanics, but I tried to run a con game and nobody joined. Never seen it mentioned again 'til now!

I'm looking to trade for a set of Ectoplasm dice (glow in the dark) from the Wizard Dice set.

 What I'm offering in trade are two sets:
1) The Winter (translucent blue) dice from the Wizard Dice set
2) A color set of your choice from the "Fudge IT! Fudge Dice Infusion Kickstarter" (linked)  I'm expecting the survey for that to go out soon. The three color options from that are Reflex Blue, Violet, and Green (Pantone 368 x2, but I think it might be darker since the sample picture was rather light.)

Anyone interested?

Rules Questions and Answers  - 
 
Presumably the different types of wounds may have other effects under the full rules, but I have a question since Wounds are placed face-up.

Do wounds count as face-up cards when actions are taken, thereby automatically increasing suspicion?

+Rico B. No, you can't be as good anymore - those cards are removed from play, you can't use them, even after reshuffling. If those are face cards, you're especially screwed.

That's penalty enough.

They're also narrative penalties. A limping character isn't likely jumping from roof to roof

I've been a big fan of "sandbox" style space flight sim/adventure games ever since I first played Elite in the late 80s and really fell in love with that style with Wing Commander: Privateer back in the 90s.  This past weekend I finally tried out Galaxy On Fire 2, which I'd downloaded quite a while ago.  And it totally hits that Privateer vibe for me - this game is awesome!

Dear #Google
Please stop automatically re-enabling #gmailcategories  when I receive new emails.  I disabled those for a reason (I use labels).  And please fix the #gmailmobileapp   so that it actually keeps de-selected categories unchecked.  Why can't my inbox settings from the web-based #gmail  just sync to the mobile app the way my #labels  do?  I know some people will be using the categories and improvements are nice - but please keep everything individual customization as a working option!  I like that I can have #Gmail  handle email the way I want it to and incorporate new features that help me, but not those that I don't want to keep.

This is pretty funny (especially if you're familiar with the bloody and NSFW source material). Go Bronn and Tyrion!
