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.

Had one of my gamers give me a copy of that one for Christmas they found at Goodwill. Love it!

Fate Accelerated Edition (FAE)  - 
 
I was at Winter Fantasy this past weekend, and I was so missing my Fate gaming system, but at the same time I was very much enjoying the tactical miniatures movement of 5E. This got me thinking and I resurrected a tactical combat hack I had been working on a long time ago. Figured I'd post it here for feedback, comments, etc.

+Jewel Fox I'd be curious as well, I saw that WoA had some tactical combat, but what I've seen of it has been very sparse. My hack is definitely inspired by DnD, and I think theirs is inspired from another game that is in resistance.

Feature Suggestion  - 
 
Is there a way to have Sticky Tags, tags that get appended automatically when you log until you say otherwise. This would be good for locations, and sessions so that every log entry automatically gets tagged with them and you don't have to type it every time. 

Or, maybe I'm missing something, but I would like to know each and every thing that happened at a particular location, otherwise when I search for a location the only thing I'd get is instances where I specifically typed it in.

It is not on the public roadmap (yet), so keep your ideas coming! :-)

Has anyone use the Grim World (http://www.boldlygames.com/grimworld/) supplement book for Fate in any games. Just looking for any input on value for a strictly fate/fae game.

I have it but haven't used it yet. It includes stats for FATE and Dungeon World.

Looks awfully familiar to me.

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.

Windows Help  - 
 
I've been trying to figure out how to Compile to a 2 column layout in Scrivener 1.9 for windows. I saw something about choosing RTF when I compile, but I'm not seeing any options for multiple columns when I change the compile options. Can anyone tell me if compiling to two column layout is supported in 1.9 for windows? And if so, where I might find the option for it?

It is possible to include graphics in a Scrivener document but Scrivener is not a graphics editor. Likewise, Scrivener is not a page layout program — And I hope that it never will be, because then the focus of the program would no longer be as useful for a writer.

Actual Plays  - 
 
Discovered that Taver-Keeper.com is a really good tool for solo play. Here's my second solo rpg session (rpgsolo.com was the first session.)  Using #FateAccelerated  as my primary system.

https://www.tavern-keeper.com/roleplay/1863

The tools for rpgsolo.com are awesome, but the ability to record your
play sessions is limited - and CTRL-Z ate some of my text a few times until I learned to just not use it. Now if I could just export my Tavern-Keeper roleplays into one set of text for post-editing into a longer story that would be awesome.

+Malcolm Iggleden That's an interesting app. Not sure it meets my needs though. I do like all the tagging you can do, but there was no dice roller. I just doesn't quite do it for me.

I'm running a Fate Freeport game and the last game we had a few of the newer players trying to always use their highest skill. I was OK mitigating that, but the table did essentially fall into a group decision that you could use Strength to defend against attacks via a weapon on weapon or shield on weapon type of block. I was having a hard time with that only because the Armor wearing folks can now use their armor AND their strength to mitigate damage which makes them very tanky. I'm considering saying Dexterity is the the only defense skill for combat (sans some very good case for something else, i.e. grappling with Str is OK) when someone attacks you - use your armor if you can't get out of the way fast enough (which is really the point of it)

Additionally, does anyone have thoughts on how to handle it when someone says "I'm just going to take the hit" and use my Constitution to defend. Is that even viable? I was just trying to decide how to handle it when someone decides to do this. Thoughts?

+Dorian Knight The Fate Freeport Companion is really good IMO. I've taken my D&D players and converted them over to Fate and this book has enough D&D flavor to help them make the transition a little easier. The spells and such are decent attempt at being crunchy, but still give the freedom to go more Fate once a player gets comfortable with the system. The conversion tool from D&D stats to Fate is so straightforward that I actually use my 5E Monster Manual when I play and convert creatures on the fly - it's easy as pie.
