Anyone of you math folks out there have some answers you could help me formulate?

A. What is the probability of rolling "1 or higher" on 4dF. I've found stats for rolling a specific number, but not "# OR Higher".

B. Is there a way to determine a random number from 1 to 8 with Fate Dice. There are 9 possible outcomes, so, just looking for some options. Which might include me being OK with 1 to 9 ;)

Thanks in advance!

+Paul Kießhauer's answer is the easiest is you have to use dF. It might be easier to if you conceptually remark one die as +++,+++,0,0,-,-. Then you get numbers from -4 to +4 with a uniform distribution.

I'm running a website for creating character sheets and managing characters for roleplaying games. Right now the character sheets are kind of cumbersome to create so I'm making them myself.

The question is, what RPGs are staples and should be added to the site? I'd like to make sure I'm focusing on the right games when I put the time into crafting new sheets.

The spell sheet is now added to the 5E D&D character sheet. If you are using an old copy of this sheet you can update to the new one by Editing your copy and clicking the Sync button.

Sorry gang, I found a decent sized issue with the 5E sheet that wasn't aware of until last night. I've posted a blog about the issue with details.

Added a V2 of the Fate Core character sheet at http://theprocurator.com. http://www.theprocurator.com/game-sheets/view/fate-core-v2/cd049d25-0a02-4202-bc21-2a0388036d09 #character_sheet

The main difference between this and V1 is that I individually boxed the skills up to make the pyramid easier to visualize.

I made this sheet more dynamic, including an autocomplete for the skill (using default fate) and hilight/graying out of the extra stress/consequence boxes.

Does anyone know if the licensing of Fate would cover making a board game that was based on Fate? It seems that the Creative Common license reads that it would be OK:

"Use of this license will simply require that you make a clear statement (we’ll give you the text) that your game is based on our material."

Thoughts?

Trademark licensing might apply, but the copyright licenses would not.

Posting an actual play event running a solo adventure at Taver-Keeper.com. This has both physical and mental combat.

Just posting for fun, feedback is welcome. Always trying to hone my GMing for fate so I can bring this type of play to the table when my players are actually present ;)

I was using https://www.rpgsolo.com/ and using the "Get Answer" button, which essentially has you determine the odds of the outcome and then you get answers of No and Yes with a possible + or -. So, a Yes - means what you asked happens but there's also something bad in the mix. I think there was was example of a No+ when asking if the Priest on the floor could fight. The answer was No, and I decided the + was that he wasn't badly injured.

There's also a fate specific oracle system for solo play (which is essentially the above) at http://soloroleplayer.com/products/fate-solo/ (and heck, maybe I was using that, it's been a while ;))

I'm prepping for a Star Wars Fate game tonight, and I happened to have a book in my library that I discovered is a brilliant companion for my game. There are little blurbs and stuff.
