Over-the-top Science Fantasy FATE Core
I've been looking to try out FATE for a while now.  I've got experience running numerous games for my friends, but they aren't interested in FATE and I've only run one other game on RPOL.

I was hoping to find a handful of players who would enjoy learning to play FATE together.  I've got the Core book as well as the System Toolkit and the Adversary Toolkit.

The setting would be The Dragon-Empire - a totalitarian feudal empire that spans the cosmos, where the lower class masses can't hope to resist the super-powered aristocracy.

It's an over-the-top outlandish 'kitchen sink' science fantasy wonderland of inconceivable technology and incomparable sorcery.

For inspiration, look no further than The Metabarons, movies like Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor (especially Ragnarok), Hellboy, Sucker Punch, 300, Dune, Star Wars, Valerian, The Fifth Element, tabletop games like Warhammer 40,000, Exalted, Shadowrun, CthulhuTech, and video games like Gears of War, Dante's Inferno, Darksiders, and God of War.

The tone of the game will be serious, desperate, and, yet, optimistic.  There are terrible evils perpetrated by the Dragon-Emperor and his minions.  The forces of the Dragon-Empire are unknowably vast and overwhelmingly powerful.  Despite this, there are still those who will fight against tyranny and oppression.

The players would be former members of the aristocracy who decided to use their powers for good or low-born serfs who have recently acquired, discovered, or been cursed with some heretofore unknown power.  They will strive to make the cosmos around them better place and may also try to plan some large-scale revolution.

Well, I've played and ran Fate before, though I'm not sure if I'd call myself a veteran; I probably still have much to learn about it myself. If that's not a problem then I'm certainly interested, character inspiration pending.

I would be very interested, as it is some time I am trying to get some playing experience with Fate. I am very curious about trying out Fate, but I have almost no playing experience and the idea of learning playing Fate together is perfect for me.

I'm in the same boat as you; looking to learn more about FATE but the tabletop isn't interested.  I'd be game.

In reply to baxtheslayer (msg # 1):

I'd be interested in lurking and observing this from the sidelines (I have too much on my plate right now to play).

Every Success!

I'm pretty familiar with FATE Core, and this is exactly the kind of setting that I dig. Count me in!

Baroque Space Opera might be worth a look. Engineered for FATE, kitchen sink and the antique couch thrown in.

I'd be interested. I've been interested in Fate since I picked up Spirit of the Century years ago, but I've never had a lot of success running it.

I like pretty much every source you've mentioned, so I'm intrigued. I wouldn't envy anyone trying to make anything remotely coherent out of all that, but if you're not planning to anyway and just want to have fun, and you're taking input from the players, I'm in.

I'd be interested.  I've never played FATE system before, but I have listened to podcasts where players have played it, and I was super-interested as a result.

And, I'm always interested in sci-fi/sci-fantasy.

I have a very specific idea that I've been wanting to try out for a number of years. It may not fit, but it might. If you'd have me, let me know in PM or something so I can get you the idea.

I'm definitely interested in science fantasy FATE core, especially if it's over the top!

Put together a game, it can be found here:

link to another game

I'm pretty new to RPOL, so I'm hoping I set it up so everyone can see the intro thread for a little more info on the game and can request access.  If not, someone let me know so I can try to fix it...
