The Galactic Space Service Titan is making her maiden voyage from Kuiper-7 to the Galactic Port at Arcturus, a trip of several months, in the most opulent luxury that several quarillion credits can afford. For some, the endless social engagements, high society and endless buffet are worth the six-figure "conscious transit" ticket, but for those looking for a more practical travel to Arcturus, the Sleeper Bay is more preferable. The ship is captainless, piloted by a new brand of A.I called ROS, and a number of handy metal servants that are programmed to learn the specific needs and quirks of each guest.

It is only two months into the voyage, when the blinking "STANDBY" light on your Sleeper pod flicks to green, and the reanimation process begins....

Fate Accelerated is a modification of Evil Hat's Fate system for shorter play and more roundabout problem solving. Less focus has been placed on mechanics of the game in favour of a richer narrative experience. There is nothing that you cannot do, so long as you do it in the right way...

Plot outline: In the town of Gladstone, QLD, in the year 2314, the water is running out. Rain hasn’t fallen for years, and the deep water table bores are bringing up less and less, at worse quality. But there are rumours that Dr Mick Greeningham had been working on something that he claimed could reverse global warming before the bombs fell, and that the legacy of his work can be found in 1770, a town just down the road.

It’s an easy job, get in your car, go down the road, pick up the mysterious relic of the old world, and get your behind back to Gladstone. Fair dinkum, cobber.

But war. War never changes.

Fate is a game about narrative freedom and light mechanics. The power to drive the story is in the hands of not only the GM but the players as well. Created by Evil Hat, Fate Core allows for any genre and any scenario. In this case we're taking a look at what would happen in the Australia of a post-apocalyptic universe similar to (but not quite) that found in the Fallout computer game series.

Something Bad Happened.

Not sure what, but the world really went to hell. Now zombies, bandits, and worse roam the world under the moon, and what dregs of humanity remain try to eke out a living as best they can. You are Runners, the only people brave, skilled, or mad enough to face the horrors on the surface and travel between settlements, carrying much needed supplies, intel and salvage. The night is harsh, the monsters are everywhere, but you are strong, skilled and bad-ass.

You are the only ones that can be relied on to keep everything going. Without you, everyone dies. So when the Grey Man handed the head of your chapter a briefcase and told him "This will change everything", you knew you would be the one to make it happen.

Run fast, take care, avoid the Aberrants.

And don't be outside when the sun goes down.

Rough Cuts are a series of short, focused, easy to pick up role playing systems. This one, Runners, is base around a specific consequence and damage system. The characters you play are skilled, and generally can complete any task without making a roll. The challenge comes in dealing with the consequences of your actions.
