As a disclaimer before I go into my first impressions of the Alpha test of the Dystopian Universe RPG, this was a very quick and dirty session. Most of the players had tried FATE based games before but were not very familiar with the system. And I was not…

Hello all. Just started running a Titasgrave game and my friends are hooked. I joined here because Michael Rainey was kind enough to post all those fabulous cheat sheets and a much better character sheet over in the Ronin Army boards. Thanks Micheal!

I have a question about the use of a few skills in FATE Core. I'm looking to start my second time running a FATE rpg, this one based in CrimeWorld from the Words In Shadows book.

But some of the skill seem very similar. Would anyone be able to help me out by giving a few examples of how these different skills would be used during game play? Are my summaries close to correct?

Investigate - When a character has to study a scene to find information.

Information - This is specific to CrimeWorld, and is described as the process of parsing information, and being able to manufacture false leads, so when a character needs to make fake IDs or leave a fake trail away from the crime scene?

Expertise (Lore) - Relates to the background of a character, things that they already know a lot about and so they can look at a situation or a problem and know what to do about it.

I think the main place I get confused is between Investigate and Lore. Either way it seems like - I don't know what this is so I roll using either skill and can figure it out. What cases would cause one to be used instead of the other?

Thanks for any help you can offer!

Yay! My first blog about my new RPG group and game. I'm excited. Hopefully we can keep this one going for some time. I'm really enjoying Diaspora.
