No experience necessary: this session will be a tutorial that uses Fantasy Grounds’ built-in Fate Core ruleset to teach the basics of Fate Core PCs, mechanics, and actions and then put it all into practice by playing through an original two-scene scenario that will serve as a prequel to the Night Fears casefile (adventure).
NOTE: Night Fears is a Dresden Files RPG casefile. Both it and this prequel will be played using Fate Core mechanics while retaining many elements of the Dresden Files RPG. (If this sounds confusing, it’s not.)
Overview of the Tutorial Prequel Scenario:
The PCs are a group of young teenagers about to enter high school together. In the final days of summer, on a dare, they decide to spend the night in an old house that’s said to be haunted. (That’s the subject of the Night Fears scenario.)
How did this dare come about? That’s the subject of this prequel session. The PCs have worked together in their final summer before high school as counselors for a summer camp. Today is the final day of camp, and the staff have planned a “graduation party” for campers. Beneath the fun of the day’s activities, all the rivalries of adolescence churn…
Player Characters: Pregenerated, customizable PCs will be provided—a mix of mortals and minor talents at the “Feet in the Water” power level. Here is the list of PCs:
- Andy Drabyk, Jock in the Making
- Chris Stein, Trickster Changeling
- Dani Lussier, Gorgeous Rich Girl
- Jaimie Collins, Psychic Bookworm
- Mike Ng, Troubled Medium
- Nicky Hamonic, Steadfast Best Friend
- Terry Jefferson, Devout Follower of the Shepherd
Playing Both Sessions Is Encouraged!: It is encouraged, although not required, for players to also sign up for the main adventure, Night Fears. Since this is a prequel, you will be able to play the same PC in both sessions and to carry forward story and character developments arising in the prequel into the main adventure. You can sign up for that session, the Night Fears scenario, here.
