  6. You shaked my head. In OGL section 15, should i use this:

    Fudge System 1995 version © 1992-1995 by Steffan O’Sullivan, © 2005 by Grey Ghost Press, Inc.; Author Steffan O’Sullivan.

    Or this:

    Fudge 10th Anniversary Edition Copyright 2005, Grey Ghost Press, Inc.; Authors Steffan O’Sullivan and Ann Dupuis, with additional material by Jonathan Benn, Peter Bonney, Deird’Re Brooks, Reimer Behrends, Don Bisdorf, Carl Cravens, Shawn Garbett, Steven Hammond, Ed Heil, Bernard Hsiung, J.M. “Thijs” Krijger, Sedge Lewis, Shawn Lockard, Gordon McCormick, Kent Matthewson, Peter Mikelsons, Robb Neumann, Anthony Roberson, Andy Skinner, William Stoddard, Stephan Szabo, John Ughrin, Alex Weldon, Duke York, Dmitri Zagidulin.

    For Fudge copyright?

  9. It looks like there is a small typo in the Stunts chapter from DFRPG: The third and fourth paragraphs under Building Stunts look like they should be the same paragraph (extra line break).

  10. Thanks — tho I’m not super worried about stray line breaks, I admit. 🙂

  15. I missed the Kickstarter and would have been a backer. Is there a way to get ahold of the current fate core pdf so I can see what is changing?

  16. No — we ran it for 57 days as a limited-time offer on the pricing. But all the products funded will be available for sale upon publication at and elsewhere, and I’m hoping we’ll have a digital version of Fate Core out to the world in the next month or so.

    May I ask where you get your gaming news from? We’re trying to figure out how we missed people in our two-month project window that was discussed in a number of places online…

  18. Is there anything in the Fate Worlds books that is open content ?

    I want to adapt some of the mechanics for something I’m working on but it looks like it’s not open content.

  19. It’s not open content at this time. That said, people riff on mechanics from other games and systems all the kind; so long as you’re not plagiarizing the actual text, it’s likely not a concern.

  20. Thanks Fred

  21. I’ll contact the author and evil hat beforehand if I ever decide to publish.
