Starter Game Scenario Included!
Most Arkham folks don’t even know it exists, but a million forgotten souls are buried in mass graves dug by convicts on a tiny, forbidden island east of the Miskatonic river. Since 1869, still-born babies, the homeless, the poor and the unclaimed have been stacked one upon the other, three coffins deep, on Lone Tree Island.
Something is brewing on the island, and it's up you to, the investigators, to find out what is going on on the Island of Death!
What is Fate RPG?
Fate RPG is actually two systems - there is the quick and fast Fate Accelerated and the, marginally, more advanced Fate Core. Both systems are supported by this book!
What is Fate Core?
Fate Core is a tabletop roleplaying game about proactive, capable people who lead dramatic lives. The type of drama they experience is up to you. But wherever they go, you can expect a fun storytelling experience full of twists…of fate.
Number of players: 3-6
Age of players: 12+
Length: 2-8 hours
What is Fate Accelerated?
Fate Accelerated, or FAE, is a condensed version of the popular Fate Core system that brings all the flexibility and power of Fate in an easily digestible—and quickly read—package. With FAE, you and your friends can step into the world of your favorite books, movies, and TV or you can create a world of your own. And set up is simple—you can be playing in minutes. Whether you’re new to RPGs or an expert gamer, FAE brings something special to the table. My 6 year olds love it ;)
