The Accelerated Book of Approaches


Approaches are one of the most accessible and easy to learn parts of the Fate Accelerated Edition system, familiar to players of traditional games as well as players brand new to roleplaying. While the FATE Core Rulebook provides an excellent set of approaches, they may not work for all games. This book remedies that fact by providing new approaches to replace those found in the Fate Accelerated rules, including approaches familiar to those using the d20 system, the d6 system, and the Traveller system.

The book also examines the traditional approaches found in Fate Accelerated and shows how they can be used differently in the game.

As other reviewers have noted, this is more like an extended blog post or forum comment than a "book" (as it calls itself). At least it's only 59 cents currently. The sorta good: Overall, there's nothing terribly compelling, [...]

Uh, I feel like I just lost a dollar in a vending machine. "The book also examines the traditional approaches found in Fate Accelerated and shows how they can be used differently in the game." I don't believe that sentence holds true, [...]

First things first. The Accelerated Book of Approaches is a misleading title. Another reviewer likened it to a re-formatted blog post, but it's really a more of a forum post in pamphlet form, padded out with creative commons artwork- There's not near [...]

It's probably worth buying for the 99 cents since it does a good job of explaining existing approaches. However, if you're led by the description to believe that it has a large selection of alternative approaches, it doesn't really. It has lifted abili [...]

I thought this book had some good ideas for a new player. However wrongly or rightly I was expecting a bit more. It felt like an extended blog post, and to be frank and honest have since found blog posts that are more imaginative and instructive on the [...]

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.
