Save For Half episode # 27: "Dresden Files by Evil Hat Productions"

It's time for your Fab Four Halflings to accept their fates...FATE Core, that is! We sit down and cover our first FATE game in the guise of The Dresden Files RPG, based on the bestselling book series by Jim Butcher. We learn about Fate Dice, Aspects, and how DM Jim's questions leave DM Corbett with answers that involve a lot of the word "maybe". Wizards complaining about fireball ranges, vampires in bowling alleys, and more await your ears in this episode of Save for Half! Nevermore!

No Black Court Vampires were harmed in the making of this show, because they're all dead anyway.

It's all here at: http://saveforhalf.com/

Wow just noticed I didn't post when I first listened.

Thanks for posting this

I've thought about looking into Fate games before , so got a lot for this one.

That said, from this I'm SURE Fate IS NOT for me ...

It does sound like there is something good to take from it, the collaboration on 'site building (but keeping it blended with player input and GM behind the scenes decisions) and notes for NPCs

However, the roots for FATE game makes my head bleed from the sound of it. I'm not crunchy but I don't think I could do or handle the story telling focus of the system.
