Powered by FATE! A system to build your own RPG universe!

Want to build your very own RPG world?   Why not use the award winning FATE Core System!

Let me know if your interested!  Some info and links below to get started with this.  In short, you are simply building a world but utilizing the GAME mechanics.-F4x4

We could start by defining 3 cities/worlds in universe X—-they don’t have to be the same, and they could effect all players and what they can do in those worlds.  Think of it as superman going to Earth….he’s powerful on Earth (1 world) yet he’s a normal person on krypton.   Or maybe a city where technology borders on the realm of magic, or the opposite…..a city where all magic is nullified.   Optionally, maybe a STEAMPUNK theme of magic, and heavy iron mechs!

How To Make A Fate Game Using the OGL

We’re going to be borrowing FudgeRPG.com’s excellent boilerplate approach, here.

What you need to do is:

  • Grab a copy of the OGL and put it in your product (we tend to put it where you normally find the copyright page, while others might put it at the end of their work). You can find a copy here.
  • Use the text found below as the start of your Section 15 of the OGL
  • Replace all of the [square bracketed text] found there with the specifics of your own product.

That’s it. You don’t have to ask our permission or anything like that, though we’d love it if you let us know your product’s out there and maybe slide us a few free copies (digital is fine). If you want to use the Powered By Fate logo on your product, you can find one on our main licensing page.
