Will Evil Hat Accelerate the Dresden Files in 2014? That’s Up To You!

Big news for RPG fans (and folks interested in trying it out) on the Fate Core kickstarter today: if the Fate Core kickstarter campaign makes it up to $400,000 in the next week, they will produce a lightweight, streamlined “Fate Accelerated” Dresden Files role-playing game aimed at making it easier than ever to game in the world of the Dresden Files.

With Wild Cards you cover everything from straight up superhero to magic to technology based powers. If you're considering it, I recommend starting at book one, although you could jump on at the newest trilogy.

It would be nice to see a Dresden files RPG conversion to the Runequest system (like Legend/MRQ2).

I don't know anything about what you said, but I'd think that you'd be better off suggesting something like that to Evil Hat as I don't believe that anyone here can help. Just a guess though.

I finished Ever After. The plot was fun. Rachel's dialogue was silly as per usual and her rigid moral stance made me want to smack her a few times. I'll give it 4/5 stars.

I'm not there yet as I've decided to wait until after the final book in the series (#13) has been released, so that I can read them all back to back.

That's a good idea. I follow several unfinished series and it's so easy to forget details between novels.

That's why I waited on Harry Potter until the final book was published, then blew through the series in two weeks.

a good idea, but I'm not waiting! It's next, after the book I'm reading now, Leviathan Wakes!

Cool Wool Fans

If you're a fan of Hugh Howey's Wool Omnibus you might want to look at my most recent post in the Wool 1,2,3,4,5 thread.

Cool Dresden Files - A Conversation with Jim Butcher

Back in the first quarter of 2012 I posted the first of this three part video. This time I'm going to re-post it and include the other 2 parts.

I started Cold Days last night. Read about 100 pages before forcing myself to go to bed. Rather than mess with spoiler tags, I'll sum up my reactions so far with...

Yay! (Because, well, Harry. Duh.)
Oooh!
Oh crap!
LOL!
Sh-- look out!

Okay, one spoiler tag.

Spoiler:
Cat Sith is awesome. I don't yet know how much of a role he has here, but that moment when he started to respect Harry was a pretty cool moment. I don't even know why I love the "Malk of all Malks" so much. Probably because, well, magical fae cat thing.


Yeah, loving it so far!
