Trial of FAE Episode 1 – Paper, Rock, Wizard!

Hello and welcome to the Trials. This is where we test out new game systems, so you don’t have to.  I am Michael and this is the Trial of FAE.  Episode 1 – Paper, Rock, Wizard!

This Play test is a bit different than the other ones so far, in that this one wasn’t really planed. if you’ve been listening to our Dungeon Talk Podcasts you would know that I’ve become enamored with FATE and FAE and want to do a full play test game (or two) with the system.  So last week when our regular game got cancelled  with very little notice because 3 players couldn’t make it, I decided to run a FAE game with the two that could. So Niko, Travis and I ran a short session of FAE using a hacked Approach and Abilities method (A&A – by @Rzrstrm). I had recently downloaded a free 4e module from DrivethruRPG called Kyber’s Harvest and after a brief review of that module used it as a framework to run the game.


In this 1st of 2 episode game we meet our heroes as they make their way to Blackroot a small village in the Shadow Marches looking for a friend named Doria.



Thanks for listening. We hope you enjoy.

    Hello all-

    Is it better to read FATE: CORE or FATE:ACCELERATED?

    Is FATE:ACCELERATED really just a condensed version of FATE:CORE?

    Hello all-

    Good game play and role playing.

    I have the freebie adventure, Khyber’s Harvest, so was interesting following along while they played.

    Just noticed that the play with fewer players seemed a bit better.

    Going to have to look into the FATE system more to see what you are talking about. Did not really hear AC, saving throws, skills, so wondering how it is done up.

    Since you are were all having fun, you must have been doing it right!!!
