If you know anything about tabletop RPGs, then you know the FATE system by Evil Hat is pretty rad. So rad, in fact, that we’re using it for Atomic Robo.
They’re Kickstarter-ing the newest edition of FATE. It’s the most streamlined, most adaptable iteration of the system so far. Every single reward tier, including $1, gets you access to the game via PDF, and every version of that PDF as the game is tweaked by player response during the KS campaign. Cough up a little more cash for the print or hardcover editions if you’re so inclined. And check out all those other stretch goals if you want to watch money disappear from your account.
The upcoming Atomic Robo RPG runs on an adaptation of FATE Core tuned specifically to the source material by Mike Olson. You do not need this book to play it. You should get it anyway, because it’s for running any and every other kind of game.
