Our pink Fate dice arrived today. RpgGamerGirl’s comments:
‘Oh wow, oh wow. Wow wow wow wow wow. That very cool.’
So begins my master plan to get the whole family playing Fate Accelerated. Three sentences to describe your character and you’re pretty much ready to rock. So, Indiana Jones could be:
‘Always gotta have my trusty whip and hat’
‘I hate snakes!’
‘It belongs in a museum!’ (Thanks to Potelbat Podcast for this one)
The timing is perfect. RpgGamerBoy and I played a Dungeons and Dragons boardgame last night that we haven’t played before. The combat was a combination of dull and a bit grim so we went a different direction. RpgGamerBoy ended up persuading the big baddy (a Bugbear) to hand over the hostage (the Sheriff of Holbrook) using some awesome local knowledge and a clever bribe.
So we’re going to focus on cool world-building and storytelling for a bit and avoid too much combat. This, I think, is where Fate Accelerated steps in.
