In our first ever Fate Core podcast Matt, Brandon 2 and Danny sit down and fill out the Game Creation Worksheet and come up with the world of Scorched Wynd, or is it Burning Wynd? Okay we could use some help on the name but the game world comes out pretty awesome. Listen in and please help us come up with a better name.
As always please like us on Facebook, follow us on twitter @TheGoblinBeat and send us questions or suggestions via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and last but not least we would appreciate any good ratings and/or reviews on iTunes. Thanks for listening!

After the success of the Fate Core KickStarter it was only a matter of time before the Evil Hat guys came out with their own line of dice to allow the over ten thousand backers to play the upcoming game in style. Well now we can stop waiting as the Fate Dice KickStarter has arrived and these dice look nice! The first package of dice starts at $20 for US backers and gets you a pack containing three sets of fudge dice. After that you can get additional regular packages of dice for $15 each for normal sets or $18 each for the yet-to-be-announced special sets. So far the announced packages include the official Fate Core set using colors from the book, the Centurion set and the Atomic Robo set. The next set doesn’t get revealed until funding reaches $30,000 which shouldn’t take long since funding reached $26,000 within the first few days. I absolutely everyone stop reading this article and go pledge to the KickStarter. Okay now that you did that I have a small confession to make. The last hidden set would have also been revealed on May 7th if it didn’t reach $30,000, I’m just impatient. On the bright side you’ll be getting some Fate Dice soon!
What do you think about these dice? Are you planning to get some? What other sets would you like to see?

Anyone who loves pen and paper RPGs has at least heard of the Fate rule system by Evil Hat Productions even if you only know that it is the system the Dresden Files RPG is based off like me. If you are also like me in that you haven’t ever actually played a Fate based game then now is your chance. With the Fate Core KickStarter everyone has a great chance to get into this exciting system at a ridiculously low cost. Just $15 gets you a physical copy of the new Accelerated rules book, which has everything you need to learn to play in the system, and you can add extra copies of the book for $5 each which means you could get enough books for a group of five for $35!
No matter what your backer level though you immediately get access to the current pdf version of the new Fate Core book and all backer levels $10 and up also get a PDF version of every expansion funded by the KickStarter! This KickStarter has already blown the minimum funding level way out of the water. They currently sit at over $330,000 of the $3,000 the project had set as the minimum goal. This is beyond great for any RPG fan looking to check out the system because almost all of the stretch goals already met benefits you immediately.
Look for the Goblin Beat to run a couple of 1-shots on our actual play podcast very soon with the new Fate Core System. We can’t wait to try it out and see what we think.
Oh and I almost forgot, the $400,000 stretch goal? An all new Dresden Files Accelerated book! We are all big fans of the Dresden files here (the Goblins make us watch re-runs of the show on a bi-weekly basis) so there is no doubt we’ll be playing that if/when it gets funded.
One last bonus piece of information for all of you Atomic Robo fans out there (Matt!). Evil Hat is working on an upcoming RPG game based on Atomic Robo as well!
