You know Mr. Sotomayar, I am a white man that respects you and is subscribed to your channel.  I don't understand you saying that black people are too comfortable around whites.  Often I have run into a sort of spite from black people, and I live in a black neighborhood.  Isn't the answer for us to get more comfortable with each other and just treat each other as people instead of black or white people?  Why is it bad for us to be comfortable?  I understand your example but it is the exception not the general rule.  You have to let your guard down sometimes, I don't blame the people in that church.  They were only loving their neighbor as Jesus commanded.

Do you realize that you are ignoring half of the game?  On your first playthough you should play quietly and soak up the atmospere.  I'm not saying don't stream, but don't pay attention to the stream while your playing or you'll miss out on the experience.  My first playthrough was like a good horror game.

+mike p I wouldn't know, the 7 year-old me was too much of a pussy to play it. I grew up watching my brother play Resident Evil 2, zombies terrified me.

Couldn't you just do this in real life with better AI?

Another point is that allowing a player to make a social skill character will sometimes inspire them to roleplay.  Before Fate Core I had only played games where fighting could  really change much in the game.  Fate Core made social conflict viable and inspired me to play such a character.

Yes I was playing Dresden Files powered by Fate Core.  The social aspect of it is similar to  Song of Ice and Fire.  Your way is probably a good way most of the time, but it has some downsides for certain sorts of players that want to be more focused characters.  But that would only matter in certain kinds of games anyway, your approach would easily work for most games people play.

Whats the deal Fox?  I haven't heard you say one good thing about Bloodborne (there is a lot) do you just hate the game and want everyone else to hate it?

Congrats on your marriage, book, and coming child.  I think we agree on Dark Souls II.  It was a good game, but not what I was hoping for.  Is your book anything like Game Of Thrones in Japan?

I suppose there will be people that make that comparison, but Three Realms becomes far more fantastical as time goes by.  By that I meant that it has more and more fictional fantasy content.  If you smashed GoT, Souls, and Vikings (a great show) together over top of Japan and let the pieces sprinkle down, you might get the outline of my story lol.

Settings, Worlds, Rules  - 
 
My fantasy house rules might be useful to someone so I thought I would post them here.

Fantasy House Rules

Weapon Advantage
When fighting with a melee weapon situational factors such as the type of weapon and fighting conditions are almost always important, giving the wielder of one weapon a weapon advantage to their attack roll over another character equal to a +1 or +2 depending on how big of an advantage one weapon user has against the other.  In each conflict the GM decides who has the weapon advantage based on what weapons the characters are using, and what sort of environment they are fighting in.  Melee weapons always have the advantage against ranged weapons users when in the same  zone, ranged weapons do not get an advantage unless they are on a advantageous height where they can shoot down at their targets.  Anyone riding a horse has an weapon advantage over a unmounted opponent if they are in an open manoeuvrable environment.

Ride-  The ride skill replaces drive.  A rider can always move to any zone as a free action as long as there is nothing in the way.  When figuring in weapon advantage a rider usually gets a +1 against any unmounted opponent unless they have a really good anti horsemen weapon.  The rider should never get a weapon advantage unless he has plenty of room to maneuver.
    A rider gets a +2 bonus from a prized war horse which cost 100G.

Armor-
There are two kinds of armor, heavy and light.  Armor can be “fitted” to the wearer.  Doing so provides a stunt associated with your armor.  Taking a moderate/severe consequence requires armor to be refitted before using the stunt again.  Fitting a suit of armor cost 100G.

Heavy: Reduces damage by 2.  Can be compelled to restrict movement in certain situations.

Light: Reduces damage by 2 once per scene.  Never restricts movement, and can be concealed.

Magic-  Magic counts as a skill but behaves as a skill pyramid, each level of the pyramid gives one cast of a spell.  Each level of the pyramid also allows you to cast spells of a specific level of power.  Each time you cast a spell at that level of power it is marked off, unable to be used again until you refresh at the beginning of a game session.  The following chart shows a magic skill of great, allowing the magic user to cast 1 great spell, 2 good, 3 fair, and 4 average.  
[]        Great       
[] []        Good       
[] [] []        Fair       
[] [] [] []        Average   
Infinite        Mediocre   

Because magic is flexible enough to replace any other skill, it weakens very quickly, diminishing in power with every level on the pyramid, however you may sacrifice any number of cast below on the pyramid to cast a spell above equal to the total bonus the spell is worth.  For example, to cast a great cast when you have already marked off your great cast you must mark off 2 fair cast, 4 average cast, or a good cast, and an average to pay the cost to recast your great cast.  You cannot sacrifice spells to go higher than your highest cast, which in the case of the example is Great +4.
    If you wish your character to be more talented at casting specific spells, simply use stunts to increase your effectiveness in a specific way.  Example would be +2 stress with fire magic, or +2 to create an advantage with gust of wind.  More powerful stunts/spells should also cost a Fate point or have some other drawback.  
    In combat, magic is difficult to react to, so in the case of magic being used as an attack against a specific enemy the magic user always has weapon advantage.  This is also balanced by the fact that magic degrades with each cast.


Bond-  If you wish to have an animal companion, a magical twin, or some sort of familiar you can split your character and play as two characters, a primary, and secondary character.  Your secondary character can be given some of your skills or stunts, although they must remain in your skill pyramid.  For example, if you had a hawk minor character you could move your notice to the hawk, but if the hawk was not present the primary characters notice would count as mediocre, you may change out which skills are set for which character during any minor milestones.  Stress to a secondary character is counted as mental stress to the primary character.  Both the primary and secondary character are always aware of what is going on with each other, both sharing each others experiences when they desire, and knowing when each other is in danger.  When both characters are fighting together they gain weapon advantage against their opponent.  Bond requires no in game cost, although you must have at least one aspect about your secondary character.

Alignment, class, an race:
My suggestion is to include your race and class in your high concept, and your alignment/ideals in your trouble with a bit of added flavor.  Your race can be compelled when you do something that is difficult to your race, such as a halfling wrestling a human.  Your class can be used for many invokes that help you for what your character is well trained to do.
Example:
High concept: Clever Halfling Bard
Trouble:  Sharp tongued
Alignment:  Small folk can't afford to worry about honor (neutral evil).
Motivation: I'm going to punish my sweet sister the queen.
Cool thing:  I always pay my debts.

Scenario building is much harder for me than setting building. Maybe you should talk about scenario planning next.

OK, the first session vlog is now on YouTube.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMUuVJdCVLk

It covers a particular kind of scenario - first sessions in unfamiliar gameworlds.  I'll be covering scenario planning from lots more angles as this campaign goes on.

They best gaming I've ever had was as a social character.  My skills mattered alot, but I role-played it as well.  If you want to play a social character don't you need rules as well?  My character was the only character with no supernatural powers or fighting skills, but I still took over the city in that game.

Yeah I get that, when my group plays the GM normally likes to give an open ended problem for us to solve as individual characters.  So approaches on how to be effective greatly vary.   Not only that but social characters can get powerful allies, and I think it is his way of balancing the game to force us to pay for our skills.
