      Is it too late to back the new Kickstarter at the digital $10 level? I didn't see that option on the Fate More Backerkit.

    2. Marcus Morrisey on March 11

      Still churning out great content from this KS! I am and have been so happy with the entire process and wanted to say it (again). Keep it up.

      Fate Core... The Kickstarter that keeps giving... and giving... and giving... I downloaded Young Centurions today (and a few of the others I had overlooked somehow). Thanks for staying on top of the project and rolling out products as they are ready. Your dedication is pretty awesome.

      I can't tell you how much I appreciate the way you have handled communication since this Kickstarter first started. Also, I am seriously looking forward to the upcoming Dresden Files Accelerated. Please keep up the excellent work at Evil Hat!

      Absolutely nothing's left to ship, and hasn't been since the end of 2014!

    6. Manuel Lortie Tremblay on January 3


      I pledged for the signed tier pretty much all the books as add-on back in the day and received EHP0001 through EHP0005.

      I just realized that I moved since then and never did anything about it what with my life taking a 360 change of direction for a while.

      I don't remember if there were other physical goods of if everything else was PDF. (And if I missed a shipment. Infinite sadness)

      But is there a way to update my shipping address just in case? Haven't found a way to send you a message.

      Thank you and really sorry for the trouble!

    7. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on September 23, 2015

      It's all in one place. :)

      Head over to the Kickstarter message system to your private messages page, and scroll up. You should see the message with the download page we linked you to on August 28th 2013. :) We had to institute a username and password after we sent that message, which is found on Update #56:

    8. Max Moraes on September 23, 2015

      Where do I get the final versions of all the digital books released so far? I recall download a bunch of it in the past, but I'm afraid I have lost it (not found it in my drives) and I not sure I got everything or if it was the "final" versions.

      Maybe You should use Backerkit to keep and manage it all in one place.

    9. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on May 1, 2015

      Yeah, that's unfortunate.

    10. James Gaines on May 1, 2015

      I can see the number inside the post. But where before updates was a sensible list of articles labeled along the lines of:
      Update #70: Fate Core - An Update on Stretchy Things

      Now I get some weird interactive timeline with tiny bubbles of post floating off to the side in time order. Call me old-fashioned, I call myself either gronard or curmudgeon, but I wouldn't think a simple text interface would be to much to ask, and I can't imagine all this HTML 5 floaty junk is reducing their overhead any.

    11. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on April 29, 2015

      That's odd! I can see the numbers on the updates still. I'll dig up the link — that said the most recent update was #70.

    12. James Gaines on April 29, 2015

      Kickstarter Redesigned, the Updates aren't numbered anymore.

      What's the Date on Update #56?

    13. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on April 13, 2015

      Status on those things can be checked at the project status page linked below, still!

    14. Joe D on April 10, 2015

      Any updates on
      Do: Fate of the Flying Temple
      Dresden Files Accelerated

    15. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on November 8, 2014

      No ETAs, no, but you can keep track of all Evil Hat's project statuses here:

    16. Christian Lajoie on November 7, 2014

      Got an ETA for:
      Do: Fate of the Flying Temple ?
      Dresden Files Accelerated ?

    17. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on October 4, 2014

      Check your private messages from me here on the KS site. As a backer at $10 you would've been sent a private message pointing to the download page. The username and password for that download page can be found in update #56.

    18. Christopher Chen on October 4, 2014

      Having trouble tracking down some of the expansion PDFs (expired Sendspace links?) -- is there a more recent link available?

    19. Michael Pedersen on April 15, 2014

      Totally agree with Dirk. I've seen some really badly managed ones (including one that I think the game is awesome, but the company is in so much trouble that I don't think it will last the year due to how badly mismanaged everything seems to be).

      Evil Hat is the cream of the crop. Even when there was a delay, I knew what was going on without having to hunt for the info. Heck, even right now, with the last of the stretch goals being in process, I don't have to hunt. I know that the updates come out every three months or so, and we'll be kept in the loop.

      It's why I back every project of theirs (well, since I found out about them). Top notch. And I'll be back for the next one, whatever it may be :)

    20. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on April 14, 2014

      Thanks Dirk! We aim to impress.

    21. Dirk Willrodt on April 14, 2014

      After a while here on Kickstarter, which started with this great one, I have to say that you spoiled me a little.
      I think it is important to thank you again for a very well executed campaign and especially the process afterwards with the delivery of the goods.
      Now that I have backed a few more projects I see that this one here was not the default and that these things tend to be much more chaotic.

    22. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on March 31, 2014

      Jacek — You beat me to it! That's exactly where I was gonna point ya. :)

      Got it! Backer File Downloads - all clear now :)

      Jacek on March 31, 2014

      There was a quite long list of item to be released after KS is funded - is there any updated list of those that are done and released (pdf) and thost still waiting to be finished (with a release date)? I got a bit lost what shhould I have now in pdf and what I am still waiting for :)

    25. Adam Diran on February 8, 2014

      The Kickstarter has begun for the Fate Core powered Mecha Vs. Kaiju!

      Check it out!

    26. Javier Gaspoz on January 17, 2014

      Finally!!! After almost a year after the KS ended, I've finally got the books with me!!! They're gorgeous, my preciousssss

    27. Michele Toscan on January 16, 2014

      Thank you VERY much!!!

    28. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on January 15, 2014

      Yes; go to the private message inbox you have here on the Kickstarter site itself and look for a message from me. It contains the link to the secret backer download page. Then go to update #56 to get the username and password for logging in — we had to password protect it after I sent out the private message.

    29. Michele Toscan on January 15, 2014

      As a backer of THE BOOK level, should I be able to download the FATE Toolkit? I can't find the links in my old mails.

    30. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on January 9, 2014

      You talking about our Zeppelin Attack! kickstarter? That's scheduled for the end of this month, if all goes well.

    31. Nohwear on January 9, 2014

      Any ideas when the next KS will start?

    32. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on December 3, 2013

      Nope. As we've said, we're entering the much slower third phase of the project. I'd expect material there would get updated more like quarterly or slower.

      Just wondering if there is anything new on the Double Secret Probation website?

    34. ET3D on December 3, 2013

      I got FAE and finished reading it. It's the first RPG book I read cover to cover in years. Thanks for making it condensed. It's my first real read of FATE, and as someone who played mainly stat heavy games 20 years ago it was an interesting read.

      I feel bad for the guy who got it for me. He forgot to give the package to the people who could have brought it to me, felt bad about it, and so sent it at a cost of $15 (because he didn't open the package).

    35. Jackson Starky on November 23, 2013

      And today, three days after getting my tracking email, and eight days after the box arrived, I got my shipping notification e-mail. I love it when time runs in reverse... or seems to. :-D

    36. MidnightBlue on November 22, 2013

      Oh...that's MO, USA for the folks that care about shipping destinations.

    37. MidnightBlue on November 22, 2013

      My box arrived safe and sound last night!

      The remainder of my sextet was a pleasant surprise on a cold misty day!


      Now to find a few months to read all of them...


      That Strange Tales book is a BEAST. I wasted a couple of hours last night just thumbing through that thing.

      Fun will be had!

    38. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on November 21, 2013

      Alliance loves a winner. ;)

      I just saw FATE in the November issue of GTM in the Spotlight section. Congrats.

    40. John Polack on November 20, 2013

      Fred, thank you I was able to get all the d/l's and am quite happy... :-)

    41. Jackson Starky on November 20, 2013

      Picked up my stuff from the post office today; everything was in excellent shape (kudos to the packing and shipping people). Looking forward to getting my dice so my group can get started playing!

    42. Creator Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Productions on November 20, 2013

      Check your private messages here on for the message you were sent months ago with access to the secret backer download page. That's where you'll find the link. We had to password-protect it after we sent that message out, so you'll need to check Update #56 to get the username and password.

    43. John Polack on November 20, 2013

      Fred and Evil hat crew...I am at work and have limited access to certan things on KS site but I backed at the 30$ level and thought I would get the pdf's off all the Exspansion level goodies? Has this gone out yet? Did I miss a post with the links?

      Please point my simple mind in the right direction unless these items are fothcoming then I will just wait like a good boy for my fate toys!

      and bye the bye the core book is AMAZING! just so you know caseu I a SURE you have not heard that a million times already!!!!

      Be well,

      John Polack

    44. Maniac Mansion on November 20, 2013

      Since there is no invoice with the package, the German customs has stopped it. Would it be possible to provide (asap) a digital invoice to download with which I am able to get the parcel. Would be good, if single parts were listed individually (books, postal rate, electronic services). Thank you very much!

      Regards, M.

    45. Jackson Starky on November 20, 2013

      Heh. Got my tracking email today... and apparently, my books have been waiting at my postal outlet for five days. I got no delivery notification. I'll have to crack some heads when I go in and pick up my box tomorrow. :-)

      My books came in today. They're solidly made and they arrived ahead of schedule. I have no complaints.

      Thanks much, Evil Hat.

      Just got mine in. Did notice however that the Fate Core Accelerated's binding isn't very strong at all. I'll be putting a couple staples through it since the pages are very easy to pull right out. Haven't got the guts to try breaking in the binding on the main books yet, but they feel nice and solid!

    48. ChaosModifier on November 19, 2013

      Thanks, I kew my order was weird and would probably be in the last few shipments, but still I want it now! :)
