    No GM's Sky - Uncharted Worlds
    by Dmitriy B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/18/2020 21:03:28

    Very useful for GMs who like sandbox sci-fi settings. The setting is very stripped-down, leaving only the essentials needed for an exploration-based campaign and leaving the rest to be filled by the GM and players.

    I found the mission page useful to kickstart the adventure, and different missions have potential to set different tones and/or create conflict for the characters (who, e.g. may not like working for a particular type of sponsor).

    The main dish is a large list of star systems, each packing a bite-sized content chunk and a few questions to expand on it, plus there is a bunch of mysteries that can resolve over time visiting different star systems. Though it's built for Uncharted Worlds, most of the content is actually system agnostic; I'm definitely going to adopt the form for my own GM prep and perhaps run a Risus campaign with it.

    It's Not My Fortune!

    This product delivers good bang for the buck. It can certainly prove useful when interpreting tarot card draws in solo gaming.

    It's Not My Future!
    by Jim B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/01/2018 01:50:21

    If you like It's Not My Fault (INMF), you'll like this sci-fi variant. The game lends itself well to a pick-up GMless improv game. It prints out as a single page.

    Like INMF, each player pulls three cards to create a character. This variant uses an ordinary deck of playing cards (no jokers) instead of the custom cards used by INMF. That makes this even easier to use as a pick-up game.

    In Fate Accelerated Edition (FAE) terminology, you wind up with the usual six approaches, rated 0-3 each, totaling 9 points. You also wind up with three aspects. The game avoids conflicting aspects by asking you to avoid using two cards of the same rank. Example character: a silver-tongued navy gunner with acrobatic running skills. Approaches: Careful +1, Clever +1, Flashy +2, Forceful +2, Quick +2, Sneaky +1.

    Unlike INMF, this game doesn't give you any FAE stunts. If you understand the FAE system, you could make up FAE stunts on the spot. If not, it'll probably be enough to recognize that you can do what any silver-tongued navy gunner with acrobatic running skills can do. And you can do it well, because you're a hero in this story.

    Like INMF, you draw cards to create the situation. Draw three times to answer three questions. You wind up with something like you'd find in a classic sci-fi action/adventure movie. There's nothing above a PG-13 rating. Example situation, generated by card draws: We're in what appears to be natural caverns. The alternative was getting recycled. It's about to get worse because the natives are restless.

    Your job as players is to figure out what the initial situation means, and then you take it from there.

    Perhaps a key difference between this game and INMF is that this doesn't tell you what to do or how to play after you've created the characters and the situation. Maybe they assume you already know how to play INMF and how to use the FAE system.

    From my perspective, you don't have to know INMF or FAE. Just improv the story starting from the situation you generated, and have fun. Wrap up the story when it feels like it's time to wrap it up. If you don't know how to play FAE, at least come to an understanding of what the six appraoches mean. Make up some game mechanic for resolving situations using the approach you've chosen for handling it.

    For our use, we decided it needed goals, so we created a table of 13 goals, and then we draw a card at the start to pick one.

    It's been a fun game for our gamng circle.

    It's Not My Future!
    by John R. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 06/21/2016 18:25:05

    A fun time was had by our group when we ran this game. Making characters is very easy and play leans towards an more improvisational style. I would love to see a deck done up for this, so I could use it as a supplement for my other "Not My Fault" decks!

    All of the amazing elements of its not my fault (inmf) contained on a single sheet. I really love the sci-fi theme and your included instructions to make random characters using a simple deck of poker cards. Thank you! This is amazing!
