Fate Accelerated Hack - PPV

The pre-release PDF of Fate Accelerated has been released to the backers. I've been busy with a few other projects, but this one just sort of came to me while working on Other Secret Stuff. I've been a wrestling fan for many years. I frequently buy the WWE games even if I don't watch the shows regularly anymore. The best wrestling RPG out there is Wild World Wrestling, aka the Know Your Role d20 RPG. This hack is inspired by that game, but it is definitely worth checking out on its own. Without further delay, it's time to step into the squared circle! Presenting PPV: Pro Wrestling rules for Fate Accelerated!

This hack may also be used for fighting games, boxing stories and Fight Club.

AV Club - 42 Lounge

Milwaukee has its first nerd bar. I spent my birthday here and had a blast. If you are anywhere near Milwaukee, I recommend checking it out. And order a LeChuck.

Kickstarter - Evil Hat's Fate Dice

So you've seen one of my hacks for Fate Core or CAMELOT Trigger but are having a heck of a time finding Fudge Dice. D6 dice work okay, but having the symbols on the dice makes things work so much more quickly. Evil Hat has finally gotten into the game with their own branded dice. You don't have to buy them now, they will be available after the Kickstarter, but once you see them you'll want to. They are gorgeous.

Our Last Best Hope - Expansion

Our Last Best Hope is an RPG that does for disaster movies what Fiasco does for Coen Brothers style neo-noir. Today, the expansion provides other disasters, and incorporates a few cool hacks. I put together a mission set for giant monsters. Now you can use the game to play everything from kaiju battles to the most recent Syfy Original starring your favorite faded 90's TV stars.

Here's my first article as a writer for The Onion AV Club's sister site. Gameological, in case you were stumped, focuses on games. This interview with the creator of Atomic Robo, one of the best comics out there, talks about what he's playing, the recent mobile game featuring his character, and the upcoming Atomic Robo RPG coming from Evil Hat.
