December 30, 2012: Crowdfunding Focus: Fate Core
Our friends at Evil Hat Productions are in the throes of a Kickstarter for the latest version of their FUDGE-inspired roleplaying game system, Fate. Fate Core is, to quote from the Kickstarter, "the best version of Fate we can possibly make."
Their Kickstarter blew past its initial goal within an hour of launch, and is now surpassing stretch goals almost faster than the guys at Evil Hat can set them up. The best part is, when you back the Kickstarter, you can download a draft of Fate Core immediately and even provide editorial and playtest feedback. This is a brilliant idea that we hope gets some traction with other publishers.
(Full disclosure: Munchkin Baron Leonard Balsera did a considerable amount of work on Fate Core. But we'd think it's awesome even if we hadn't co-opted Lenny.)
The Fate Core Kickstarter runs until January 29, but do you really want to wait that long to join the Fate community? We thought not.
