Finally something from fantasy to FC. Generally good job. An interesting idea for magic, but was hoping for a little more, but still for me the best magic system to FC I've ever seen. Paladin and several other professions are very interestingly done. Optional Rules also interesting. I read the rules with my friend, I would give 9/10. I'm going to buy a pdf, in my opinion definitely worth it.

I know you are going to hate me...one more question. Under Spell Slots you say that you divide free refresh by 2 round up and therefore a starting magic user has 3 spell slots. However, under Character Creation it says you only start with 2 refresh. That means that a starting magic user can only have 1 spell slot. Also you have a few example spells. I don't understand how you went from the difficulties describe on page 147 to say...Animate Dead. Animate Dead has a listed difficulty of Average (1). Yet it affects a zone, its duration can be extended (more than one scene), its effects can be enhanced (stronger undead), it has a duration of one scene. The difficulties listed don't cover extending a spell or enhancing the spell. However, zone sized spells should have a +2 difficulty (usable only by magic users with Great or above skill), and duration of one scene is +2 difficulty. So by your description on page 147 this spell should by +4 difficulty (Great or higher skill necessary) at a minimum plus whatever other...See more

We seem to be missing something I meant to mention in the Magic section - namely, that if you're using a spell slots system, a magic user character might give up some of their starting talent slots for additional refresh instead. Thus, the starting magic user having three spell slots.

On Animate Dead - note that with a casting roll of Average, the spell will only animate a single corpse. With a Great result, you could get as many as four corpses animated. However, although it's not explicitly listed as a limitation, the spell is, of course, limited to being useful when there are available corpses. Thus, for this spell, the "area of effect" is as much a limitation as an enhancement - unless a character goes to lengths to get a large number of corpses into a single zone, the one-zone area is likely to be a limit for a caster with high Magic.

Traditionally, D&D's "animate dead" spell is permanent; the zombies created last until destroyed. We decided that a scene seemed...See more

Could you explain the skill scaffold In AA? On p21 you say you have to take one class skill at Good, others at any other level you desire. I don't see where it says take a racial skill at Good (or any other level). So how do your example PCs all start with 2 Good level skills, 3 Fair etc.?

The starting skill scaffold should look like this:

Good: 2 skills
Fair: 3 skills
Average: 4 skills

You take one class skill at Good. Depending on class, you may be required to take the other at Good as well. Racial skills aren't required to be taken, unless otherwise specified for that particular race - you treat them as if they were a secondary class skill for you, even if your class normally can't take that skill.

Under Brwsmhain Precision Flyer that they can get through a door or window that is half their wingspan. In the racial description you say their wingspan is 15 feet. So do they have a hard time walking/flying through regular doors? :P You may want to reconsider rewording this one if you get a chance.

That should be understood as "while flying". And yes, they *do* have a hard time flying through regular doors... but not walking, since their wings are folded up when doing so.

I was wondering what parts were released under the Open Game Licence or Creative Commons licence. Thanks.

We haven't had a chance to produce an SRD, but you can consider that you can use all the individual stunts freely, along with the new skills introduced. The weapon and armor descriptions and their supporting material, everything in the magic chapter, the gods with the exception of the Tathirian ones, the monsters and magic items, are all open content as well.

We specifically exclude the names of our races: the Blauwnder, Brwsmhain, Equosi, Erdeschaufeln, Huruk, Informis, Kheiron, Korban, Lannix, Mosi, and Yisisir. You can, of course, use "half-centaur", "crow-man", or other equivalents - just don't use those names.

I realize that this is 'powered by' Fate Core but is it a Complete game in and of itself or does it also require a copy of Fate Core to play?

You'll need a copy of Fate Core. Core is pay-what-you-want, though, so that shouldn't be an obstacle to anyone!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
