The barabashka haunts four game systems. Boo!
Meet the barabashka, a horrible poltergeist, just one of the monsters you might have the misfortune to meet while exploring a ghost-haunted ruin in the world of Buyan. Anger, remorse, guilt. Some emotions live on after death, coalescing into an invisible, malevolent entity.

Rule Discussion  - 
 
I notice that some "official" characters have Create an Advantage and Overcome an Obstacle paired in stunts, but none of them seem to have Attack and Defend paired. Also, pairing Create and Overcome seems to be the norm. Is this accurate? What's the rationale? Et cetera? Thanks!

I'm just interpreting the rules; your interpretation may vary.

If the aspect already exists, and you tied when you are trying to get a free invoke on that aspect... How is that different from just getting a boost?

A boost, mechanically, is exactly the same as a free invoke: +2 or a reroll, then it goes away.

We're getting down to discussing semantics at this point. Perhaps we should be looking at some example situations instead.

Do you have a couple in mind?

Koschei the Deathless steps out of folklore and into FAE (in the linked PDF near the end of the post).
In my last post, I introduced Buyan, a magical island found in Slavic and Russian folktales and myths. Today, we meet Koschei the Deathless. If you'd like to read a tale featuring this villain, here's a link to a PDF of “The Death of Koschei the Deathless” taken from The Red Fairy Book by Andrew ...

Cool. He also gets two different write ups in The Paranet Papers for the Dresden Files RPG.

Dvyoniks are pack-hunting undead corpse eaters. They are immune, like most undead, to charms and sleep spells. Perhaps the most dangerous feature of these horrid, cunning creatures is their paralyzing touch. Any hit from a dvyonik requires a saving throw or the victim becomes paralyzed for 3d6 turns. What’s more, a dvyonik can change its form to resemble the physical appearance (including clothing and gear) of any person. Dvyoniks are considered magic resistant for purposes such as breaking through wizard locks and similar spells. They have a very good saving throw against magic of all kinds.

HD 3; AC 6 [13]; Atk 2 claws (1d6), 1 bite (1d4); Move 9; Save 14 (5 vs. magic); AL C; CL/XP 5/240; Special: immunities, mimics shape, paralyzing touch, undead

Leaning toward fleshing out the first and third stunts as follows. Wording is still a little rough.

Baffling BS. Because I'm a Fast Talker, I gain +2 to Cleverly convince others in order to overcome an obstacle.

Play the Part. Because I'm a Sneaky Bastard, I gain +2 to Sneakily avoid arousing suspicion by creating an advantage as part of a con.
