Have a question?
For those of us that received the Dresden Files preview for FATE Accelerated....I'd love to know your thoughts on how it compares to the original Dresden Files FATE RPG. I got to play in a very short campaign of the original and had a blast. I want to know if the FATE Accelerated version is slightly better, in your opinions, or not as good. When I first looked at FATE Accelerated I was pretty sure I'd prefer normal FATE Core but after reading FATE Core I found that I have difficulty understanding it. I had no difficulty grokking the original FATE rules.
In 2013, we promised we'd start development on the Dresden Files Accelerated Edition in 2014. We began development in 2014, which YES is still ongoing! Metrics show us that an RPG, done right, especially one based on a license, takes about 3 years start to finish. It isn't 2017 yet. So we're not in "questionably long time" frames yet. :)
Is Dresden Files Accelerated still in development? It has been in playtesting for a questionably long time. I'd just like a solid answer
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.
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!
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!
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: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/evilhat/fate-core/posts/588034
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.
Yeah, that's unfortunate.
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.
"Secret Password and Typos Ahoy" — https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/evilhat/fate-core/posts/588034
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.
Kickstarter Redesigned, the Updates aren't numbered anymore.
What's the Date on Update #56?
Status on those things can be checked at the project status page linked below, still!
Any updates on
Do: Fate of the Flying Temple
Dresden Files Accelerated
No ETAs, no, but you can keep track of all Evil Hat's project statuses here: http://www.evilhat.com/home/project-status/
Got an ETA for:
Do: Fate of the Flying Temple ?
Dresden Files Accelerated ?
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.
Having trouble tracking down some of the expansion PDFs (expired Sendspace links?) -- is there a more recent link available?
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 :)
Thanks Dirk! We aim to impress.
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.
Jacek — You beat me to it! That's exactly where I was gonna point ya. :)
Got it! Backer File Downloads - all clear now :)
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 :)
The Kickstarter has begun for the Fate Core powered Mecha Vs. Kaiju!
Check it out!
Finally!!! After almost a year after the KS ended, I've finally got the books with me!!! They're gorgeous, my preciousssss
Thank you VERY much!!!
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.
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.
You talking about our Zeppelin Attack! kickstarter? That's scheduled for the end of this month, if all goes well.
Any ideas when the next KS will start?
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?
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 $15 (because he didn't open the package).
And today, three days after getting my tracking email, and eight days after the box arrived, I got my shipping notification e-mail. I love it when time runs in reverse... or seems to. :-D
Oh...that's MO, USA for the folks that care about shipping destinations.
My box arrived safe and sound last night!
The remainder of my sextet was a pleasant surprise on a cold misty day!
Now to find a few months to read all of them...
That Strange Tales book is a BEAST. I wasted a couple of hours last night just thumbing through that thing.
Fun will be had!
Alliance loves a winner. ;)
I just saw FATE in the November issue of GTM in the Spotlight section. Congrats.
Fred, thank you I was able to get all the d/l's and am quite happy... :-)
Picked up my stuff from the post office today; everything was in excellent shape (kudos to the packing and shipping people). Looking forward to getting my dice so my group can get started playing!
Check your private messages here on Kickstarter.com for the message you were sent months ago with access to the secret backer download page. That's where you'll find the link. We had to password-protect it after we sent that message out, so you'll need to check Update #56 to get the username and password.
Fred and Evil hat crew...I am at work and have limited access to certan things on KS site but I backed at the 30$ 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!!!!
Marco, that was covered in update #64 just a few days ago. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/evilhat/fate-core/posts/663370
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!
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. :-)
