Fate Space Toolkit • Prototype Edition
A downloadable book
Take your Fate game into the great unknown with the Fate Space Toolkit! The Toolkit requires Fate Core to play. Inside you'll find:
- Guidelines for creating a space-faring game without breaking your table's sense of what's plausible.
- Multiple options for deciding how space-travel works in your setting, from star charts to rocket ships.
- A variety of tools for making your space fights exciting and consistent with your setting.
- Guidance on creating aliens and alien worlds.
- Five ready-to-go campaign-starter settings showcasing all of the toolkit's tools in action.
This is the Prototype Edition of the Fate Space Toolkit. What's that mean?
TL;DR: There's no art, but sales of this will help us get art, and once we get art, we'll upgrade your PDF to one with art at no added cost.
The Fate Space Toolkit has had a rocky ride through asteroid-filled space to reach you in its present form.
Towards the end of 2018, after the text and layout was done, but before we could schedule its release and art acquisition effort, Evil Hat realized it was over-extended and needed to slim back its product offerings for the coming year. You can read more about this in our public blog post from then, found here: https://www.evilhat.com/home/refocused-resized-hat-mode-activated/
At any rate, Fate Space ended up right on the cusp there—in the “neutral zone” as it were. There wasn’t budget to make the art happen any time soon, let alone put it into print. But the text, the glorious text, that was done, and well worth reading. So how to get it out to folks?
In the end we’ve landed on this, the Prototype Edition of the Fate Space Toolkit. We’ll sell it in this art-free form (the lavender rectangles throughout the text are place-holders for eventual artwork) until it generates enough revenue to pay for the missing art budget (that’ll require at least 500 sales). Once we have that, we can commission the art, and at least provide a final version of the book in electronic form. (If that happy event comes to pass, we’ll upgrade all purchases of the Prototype Edition PDF to the full final PDF version at no added cost.)
As to whether or not the book will see print, who knows? At the least, if we get the budget for art, we’ll be able to take a look at making it available as a print-on-demand title here on DriveThruRPG.
