Fortune is a straightforward, consise and powerful version of Fate originally authored by Paul Mitchener (Crucible of Dragons, OpenQuest Adventures, Age of Arthur & Starfall for Wordplay games) for his Swords and Sandals game Hunters of Alexandria.
We’ve already released Hunters of Alexandria as a small self contained game (110 pages A5 softcover, all the rules and setting information, scenario seeds and a starter scenario + four pregenerated characters) and we plan to release more small self contained games in this style. The basic idea that each Fortune book is a nice easy read for the referee, that they can then run with minimal preperation for a group of players straight out of the book. Don’t be fooled by the small page count, each book has enough information to run a campaign once you’ve played the starter scenario. Hunters of Alexandria for example has the city of Alexandria detailed, along with a cast of non-player characters and a small but compact Bestiary of horrors for the players to face.
Lost Fools of Atlantis will also be getting the Fortune treatment, look out for it in early 2016.
