Description:

An aging gunslinger seated on his horse scans the town below...

The brash young pilot guns his craft through the asteroid field...

A professor scours the dusty book shelves for the ritual of summoning...

An assassin holds his breath as he gently squeezes the trigger...

Strands of Fate contains everything you need to tell stories of adventure, action, horror, and intrigue set in any genre. Whether it's classic fantasy, urban mystery, dashing super heroes, or far future action, this book is your guide. Strands utilizes the award winning FATE roleplaying game system and provides the Game Master with all the tools he needs to get any campaign, of any genre or power level, off the ground and running in minutes.

Strands of Fate features:

  • Rules for creating and playing stories about average people, over the top heroes, or virtual gods.
  • A system of Advantages that provide you with fully functional magic, psionics, mutations, cybernetic enhancements, or any other strange power you can imagine.
  • Rules for creating and playing with vehicles, from pirate ships to star ships to ten story tall battle mechs.
  • Support for non-human races or even transhuman characters.
  • A system for creating and controlling units and organizations, and using them to play out regional or world spanning conflicts.
  • Antagonists and equipment to challenge and aid your characters, whether they're knights, modern soldiers, or star hopping androids.
  • While Strands of Fate is a stand alone product, its "toolkit" design allows it to be used to enhance other FATE games by providing an array of compatible optional systems.

Pros: Fills in gaps for FATE mechanics, inexpensive PDF, lots of content Cons: Poor-quality writing, guy-oriented, heavy on SF theme I bought Strands of FATE because I’m working on a Spirit of the Century campaign and I had some questions that weren [...]

If this was anymore bang for the buck my head would explode. No really if you haven't bought this do it, I have used it for several one shots, and converted a long standing ANIMA game to fate. I also have an Aberrant Fate game going. After that its [...]

Great rules set! It turns the Fate System into a universal System. The writing is very clear and makes learning the system pretty easy. Unfortunatly this is marred by a hard to read font in the body text. If the body text was an easy to read Serif font, [...]

Just got done reading this and must say that it inspired me to GM again. While I am somewhat familiar with FATE through thumbing through Spirit of the Century and Starblazers this book has been able to show me the core of FATE without the blinders of [...]

It's a solid, simple implementation of FATE... but it lacks some of the elements that I really found critical in having FATE as FATE. Not entirely my cup of tea, but well written and clearly presented, [...]

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.
