Just wanted to follow up on my request for demo tips last week.

This past Saturday, I demo'd character creation and gameplay of Fate Core, using Tower of the Serpents as my base.

Beforehand, only one person had expressed interest and my wife said she would play, as well. When I sat down, I had six people who wanted to build characters and play in the game. Caught me a little off-guard.

It was...bumpy. Pretty much everyone at the table had never touched anything outside of traditional-style RPGs before. There was a little Amber experience in there for one or two players but that was about it.

A couple of the people had a lot of trouble wrapping their minds around Aspects but overall it was pretty smooth. The biggest issue we encountered was that one of my players had a lot of trouble wrapping his mind around being a magic user but not having a defined spell list (ex: d20 magic users). I tried framing it as having narrative power to use skills for non-mundane tasks.

Despite the hiccups, there was a lot of interest and people asking me about running again. Thanks for the tips, all!

Looks like I might be demoing Fate Core at the RPGKC Game Day this month. I have never demo'd a game before and, while I feel like I have a pretty good grasp of Fate, I think some advice would be helpful.

Does anyone have any demo scenario tips? How about using one of the Fate Worlds settings for the scenario? Should I just do character creation, use premades for a scenario or combine the two for a full creation/roleplaying scenario?

I will have a 2-4 hour block to do this in. Thanks in advance!

Haven't checked it out yet, but I love cyberpunk and if +Fred Hicks gives it a stamp of approval it must be good!

Free, awesome cyberpunk adventure.

From Will Hindmarch, so you already know it's awesome, I don't know why I even had to say that.

Well. There is this, then.

Hopefully they worked through some of the...dicier (HA!) mechanics of the system.
This is your 24 hour warning: the #Exalted3 Kickstarter goes live tomorrow (Thursday) at noon. Get ready!
