I have a question with regards to Skill Modes, as described in the Fate System Toolkit (p29), and specifically how they work with regards to the Significant Milestones Skill Column "rules" (p258).

I will try to explain a little more what I am trying to achieve.
In the universe that we have created, there are 6 factions, and every faction is made up of a combination of 3 of any six castes.
Each caste contains 6 skills, so be definition the skill modes fits well, as the faction's primary caste is it's +3 mode, secondary +2 mode, and tertiary the +1 mode.

This all fits very well, but in the Core book, the Significant Milestones talks about the skill columns, and keeping a balance, "you can't have more skills at a certain rank than you have at the rank below it".

Do Skill modes simply ignore these rules, how should "levelling up" through milestones be approached with regards to Skill Modes?

Should the character sheets reflect and keep separate their primary(+3), secondary(+2), and tertiary(+3) skill modes, or once the character has been created, are they simply applied to the "normal" skill pyramid layout?

How have others approached this?

Thanks

Skill modes ignore the skill columns, yes.

Ahoy Pirate and Pendragon alike,
a happy weekend to you all.
It's the perfect time for parley, and hope that none of you swashbucklers pull a doublecross.

Invite another member to an oddball match today!

Just in case anyone hasn't considered this, in order to play you will need a copy of the game cards (print and play or otherwise).
You will also need to be able to connect via Hangout Video.

Over on the left, under the Maverick Muse link in the area about this community, there is a link to a form where you can fill out your match results.

We'll post some more solid rules about how the league will be calculated later. Results posted before the release of these rules will not be counted towards the league.

Backer Kit is out.
I pledged £7.50 more than I needed to (I pledged an extra £10 for the GB set & GB dice).
So now I'm trying to decide, should I get a 2nd set of extra zombies and forget about the extra £1, or should I get an extra set of base dice, for 4 pl game (and pay 50p extra), or get an extra set of the base game tiles (again for an extra 50p)?
Is there any need to have an extra set of dice?
What about an extra set of core tiles assuming they are double sided?
I suppose an extra set would allow for bigger scenarios, and also for using both sides of the tiles at the same time.
Would a second set of zombies be overkill? Can you ever really have too many zombies?

Hmm! What to do?

DPG said that extra tiles may be usefull only if you want to play really huge battles. And remember with all stretch goals you will get 21 double-sided tiles. That's a lot! 

Extra set of dice can be nice for 4-player game, eveyrone will have his/her own set.

With Zombies, I'm waiting for answer form DPG on KS!

Match Schedule  - 
 
If people wish to register times when they are available to participate in a match, I have set up a month long calendar, where you can add your availability. Please follow the link below to the Doodle calendar.

If someone else shows availability at the same time, feel free to challenge them to a match via a Google Hangout, or via Skype.

I believe that times show are "local" times.

League Challenge Rules.

Below is the outline of how the league will work, and how and where to record your results.
The idea is that the league is ongoing, and will allow new players to join at anytime, thanks to a Seasons initiative, which works in a similar way to a player gaining experience.

1. A season consists of playing any 5 different players twice. Once as the Pirate faction, and once as the Pendragon faction.

2. The challenge must be an online battle played over Google Hangouts, or Skype.

3. Once the battle has been concluded, the winner has the privilege of recording their win for prosperity by logging the results of each of the matches in the form indicated on the "About this community" area, and linked below. Each match will need to be logged independently, and you will need to know the opponents name, and how many cards the winner had remaining in their deck.

4. Only results logged in this manner will be considered for the league placing. This means that people are free to play “friendly matches” whenever they desire, players should therefore agree to the type of match being played, before the start of the match.

5. The league table will be updated frequently, but not immediately.

6. A win as either faction will score you 3 points. A draw will score you 1 point. A loss will score you 0 points.

7. In the event of a tied league position, the player with the highest combined total of cards remaining will be placed higher in the league. In the event of a further tie, the player with the fewest games to their name per season will be placed higher. In the event of a further tie, players will share the position.

8. Have FUN!

In case of questions, please contact the community moderators.

I might do a cyber hack of some sort but it's backed up behind a number of other projects including making full size keyblades for my son and finishing off a Legend of the Five Rings mash up.
