I've created this group on MeWe to replicate the purpose of this collection, and to more generally post stuff about what I'm working on (or have worked on):

For anyone who is on the fence regarding MeWe because they're concerned about the large amount of right-wing groups currently using it and potential motivations of the CEO, this thread might be of interest.

Since we're beginning to talk about migrations and MeWe has come up, I've created a Fate Core group on there for us to try.

I've only just started to look at it, but so far I like it, and I like that they're transparent about the way they make money (through offering premium services for those who need them) and the focus on privacy.

Maybe we can have a look and see if it might be a viable alternative to Google+ when the doors closed.

There's also a general story-based tabletop RPG MeWe but I thought it would be nice for Fate to have its own specific corner as it does here on Google+.

Here's the link:

It looks like Google is sunsetting Google+

Where do you think would be most appropriate for us to migrate the conversations that currently happen here?

Some options where there are already communities that could be used are:

Reddit (reddit.com/r/faterpg)
Facebook (There are already two unofficial Fate communities there)
Discord (there's a couple of Fate discords, but it's obviously more for live chat than posted, threaded conversations)

Are there cool alternatives I'm not thinking of?

Joe's an old friend of mine from my university days and I had a look over Henchmen for him when it was in development. It's good stuff!
Henchmen, the Fate world of expendable minions and villainous lackies is now on sale in electronic form! PoD and Epub versions to follow once our backers get their copies. If playing the henchmen of an evil organisation, trying to survive between the twin perils of heroes and your employer while struggling to rise through the ranks or at least get out alive appeals to you; you might enjoy this.

Looks like the Fate Horror Toolkit is on DriveThru's Christmas In July event at 25% off if anyone's on the fence about it.

Hi all, I'm in the process of installing DP2 on my OG Pixel. Anyone else running it on this device? How are things working for you?

...I realise I probably should have asked this question BEFORE I enrolled in the beta, but apparently I'm in an impulsive mood.

The excellent Sophie Lagacé, whom I have had the very great pleasure of getting to know and work with on some recent Evil Hat projects, is in some medical difficulties.

She has a GofundMe in progress to help pay her bills, and if you happen to have any spare cash knocking around I can't think of a worthier cause to support.
