Master Plan #15: Leonard Balsera on the FATE Fractal

Interview | , ,

Ryan sits down with Leonard Balsera of Evil Hat Productions and talks about a design concept central to the FATE — the system used by Spirit of the Century and the upcoming Dresden Files RPG — called the Fractal. They talk about this concept that treats elements larger and smaller than characters, like planets & possessions, the same way as characters are treated mechanically. Leonard also gives us a bit of an update on the Dresden Files RPG.
