Nest • A World of Adventure for Fate Core

Suggested Price $4.00

GillGamefoot.pngThere is a place where children go to become heroes, only discovered by a desperate few when they need it most. Here, they escape from their normal lives, slay giants, solve riddles, learn magic, and become kings and queens. Children grow up and the fantasies of childhood are forgotten. 

But now the realm you once protected is under attack.  You must leave behind your life, your family, and your ordinary job to defend your past from something terrible and very, very real. 

Nest, by David Goodwin, is a game of rediscovering the magic of childhood—or shattering the illusions of youth.

Nest requires Fate Core to play. This 56-page supplement includes:

  • Location seeds for the various kingdoms of Nest
  • A variety of fantasy themes to explore: epic adventure, steampunk marvels, talking animals, and riddles and puzzles
  • Simple rules for the creation of talismans, and some sample talismans to get you started
  • A milestone system to allow characters to advance (or regress) during game play
  • A sample adventure—Call to Adventure: The Threshing Stone

Magic never dies. It is only forgotten.

I was surprised that the Oz books weren't listed as in inspiration, as this is the perfect fit for it.

After this went to press, I was reminded of an odd children's book that didn't make it into the "sources" section: The Big Joke Game by Scott Corbett, published in 1972. I don't know when or where I read it, but I was glad to find the title again. It was definitely a subliminal influence.

Ditto China Mieville's Un Lun Dun! How did I forget that one!

I think good inspiration for this would be John C. Wright's excellent Hugo nominated novella "One Bright Star to Guide Them".

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.
