We've covered the main mechanical aspects of FATE, as they relate to Star Wars; in both the Skills and Stunts posts, we referenced the Force in one fashion or another. So now it's time to describe the Force, how it works, and so forth, within the context of FATE.
By now, most of us geeky types understand the Force, either by casual watching of the films or a more in-depth, analytical look at the philosophies that emerge. And the arguments over the nature of the

Another phrase that twigs me the wrong way is “one of the only.” (Also, “among the only.”) If the person or object is not a singular and is merely a rarity, then “one of the few” sounds much better to me.

Pathfinder Review - DM Screen
Hello, Everyone. It's time for another review. This one will be very quick. It's the new DM screen from Paizo.
It's generally pretty rare that I am ever surprised when I get a new accessory for my hobbies but this is one of those rare occassions where I am pleasantly surprised.

I'll be starting a 4e D&D game at Wizards on US1 in St. Augustine beginning the first thursday in January. I'll be available the thursday before the holidays to anyone who wants to join in to work on their characters.
