The Ministry • A World of Adventure for Fate Core

Suggested Price $4.00


Welcome to the Ministry. The enemy is everywhere.

In 1958, a variety of aliens have been discovered on Earth. These aren’t the comical little green men of cheap science fiction stories; these aliens are diseases, mind-controllers, and shape-shifters. Various alien outbreaks have killed tens of thousands of people around the world, and aliens have tried to possess Josef Stalin, Jawaharlal Nehru, and (reportedly) Mao Zedong.

You are field agents of the Ministry of Rocketry, assigned to London to defend your people against the alien threat. Face off against implacable alien threats in The Ministry, a Fate World of Adventure by Jess Nevins.

The Ministry requires Fate Core to play. This 60-page supplement includes:

  • Mechanical rules for alien infection and possession.
  • Tools to help inject horror elements into your games, including a new dissonance mechanic.
  • Mechanics for cities to reflect their individual identities, and to reflect the effects of an alien invasion or infection on individual locations.
  • Rules for contests and conflicts between mobs.
  • Stunts and weaponry ideas for aliens and Ministry characters.
  • A sample adventure: Incident Harvest.

The Fate Adventures & Worlds line provides compact, rich, affordable, gorgeous settings with a ready-to-go adventure for GMs in a pinch. Buy one this afternoon, be ready to run this evening.

Disappointed with this...I've been a Patreon backer since before the first "Fate World" released and been really happy with everything released, but this is a confusing mess.

Graphically, great, and production quality is definitely up to the best of Evil Hat's productions, but there's just a lot of confusion in this one

Confusing "England" with "Britain" with "The United Kingdom" is hard to do on this scale (Edinburgh is not in England, Dublin is not even in the United Kingdom), and the constantly flip-flopping around to achieve some weird consistency in this makes it a hard read for anybody from the UK.

I appreciate that some folks are incapable of understanding the differences between these polities, but the consistencies make it really hard to read.

I love Evil Hat's work, but sorry, no, this is just too hard to read.

I don't think the book actually confuses the terms. It is a bit loose jumping between them but each use is generally correct except for the section on page 7 where it seems that they are referring to Edinburgh and Dublin as part of England. When I read that I assumed they were providing contrast to England by showing the numbers in other major cities in the British Isles, but a couple of clarifying words would have done a lot there to fix the ambiguity.The section starting page 10 makes it clear which major cities are part of which country.

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.
