A Spark in Fate Core

Selected Option:

A Collaborative World-building Toolkit for Fate Core

This is an expansion of the award winning Fate Core, focussing on the process of collaborative world building. It includes some of the concepts found in The Spark RPG and helps you build an engaging setting with a history, fraught with danger and potential for growth. It helps you build places and NPC's so you are ready to dive right into play.

Essentially, this is an expansion on the much-loved setting-creation chapter of Fate Core. This has been designed explicitly to create a variety of different issues that matter to the players, and to reveal them over the course of play. This both gives you a living world to start play, and also direction for future events.

The best thing? This toolkit is totally free as a PDF, thanks to the generous backers of the Spark RPG kickstarter campaign and Evil Hat's creative commons license.  

Want a physical copy of this for your table? It's now available as an economical print on demand version, with colour covers and classic greyscale interiors. 

A Spark in Fate Core was also nominated for the 2014 Ennies Award for best free product.

I've been looking for a way to build a world that my friends would be invested in to introduce them to Fate and stumbled upon this in a google+ group. After reading it I definitely can't wait to put this to use and get some inspiration from my group! [...]

I picked this up because I did have a copy of Spark, and of Fate Core, so I was intrigued to see how the two books meshed. The result was pretty impressive, as I love the idea of allowing the Players to invest themselves in the setting creation, and th [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
