The Fate Codex - Volume 3, Issue 3


The Fate Codex is a mostly-monthly e-zine featuring Quick Start Adventures and more for the Fate roleplaying system. The project, funded through Patreon, grows and swells as more patrons support our work. We've been lucky to have lots of folks pledge, and we're now entering our third year of production!

Our backers have enabled us to not only hire great authors, but also to include great art in every issue. Issue 1 of Volume 3 features Mike Mumah, Manuela Soriani, and Juan Ochoa! There's some great work in this piece and over 10,000 words of awesome Fate content, ready to be thrown into your next game of Fate.

Now we're bringing this content to you on DriveThruRPG, so you can find and download your issues easily. Since every title is saved to your library on the site, you'll always have The Fate Codex right at hand when you need it.

In this third issue of Volume 3, we've got:

  • A new systems piece from Steve Radabaugh that brings musical theater to your gaming table titled Musical Conflicts.
  • An essay from Philippe Saner, Fate Lifepaths, that gives you new rules for randomly generated Fate characters (including examples from Venture City)!
  • A building block from Kira Magrann, Mod Bar, featuring a cyberpunk bar ready to drop into your next Fate Core campaign.
  • A new Quick Start from Nicole Winchester, The Illegals, in which spies on both sides of the Cold War play a dangerous game of cat and mouse in middle America.

Huge thanks to our great production team--Sally Christensen, Brendan Conway, J. Derrick Kapchinsky, Amanda Valentine, Shelley Harlan, Tara Zuber, and Thomas Deeny--for keeping us on task for this issue and pushing this thing forward. We hope you enjoy it!

As of June 22, 2016, this is a PRE-PROOFED version, and lacking the mobi and epub files. It is, however, the THIRD issue of Volume 3, and not the first, as described above.

Original electronic
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.
