Dungeon World’s Grim Portents in Fate Core

It seems like every new RPG has a revolutionary way to prep adventures and campaigns, and Dungeon World is no exception. But, while I enjoy playing DW, with its 10-minute character creation (that’s only if you’re new to it) and very free and open narrative play style, there’s something about that I’m not the biggest…

Adding Fate to Your D&D Games Pt 2: The Skill Conversion

This is my second and last post on converting D&D (mostly D&D Next, but there’s a fair bit of edition-neutral stuff) to use Fate’s mechanics. Check out my last post about how to start adding Aspects into the game for a better storytelling experience. This conversion stacks on top of that one. Why? You’re still…

Adding Fate to Your D&D Games: The Aspect Conversion

Why? Why would anyone want to add Fate into D&D? They’re so completely different that they couldn’t possibly combined, right? Wrong.
