    I've been holding a question to myself for a number of weeks now. I've been curious about what people have been using as inspiration when they make Fated, adventures, campaigns, or Fatemaster Characters. If you have an answer, please post it as I'm curious about what kinds of different media might show up. If this thread gets some attention, I'll likely post some of my own inspirations. Thank you in advance for any cooperation in answering my questions, and I apologize if this thread becomes nothing more than spam.

    How to Duel? (Western Style)

    We all seem to agree that Western music is a must.

    Realistically, you could just tweak Deadlands a little bit and have it be a prequel to Through the Breach. Or you could transplant Through the Breach into Deadlands and just use soulstone as Ghost Rock. I think no one talks about it because of how similar the settings seem to be, but no one wants be the guy who addresses that minor elephant.

    How to Duel? (Western Style)

    Play some epic western music, I’ll put a link to a good one for building tension. But then, break the rules of the game and cut the deck in half and take half of it for yourself and draw 3-5 cards. Instead of dueling against an enemy’s rank, duel as if it were a game of M2E. When I did this, the tension was high because the players have never seen me do anything like this before, so they didn’t know what was coming. Hope any of this helps.

    Maybe I should rephrase, I’m not looking for general places to find inspiration, I’m looking to see what specifically others are using as inspiration. I’m not looking for radio shows, I’m looking for “This Radio Show”

    Waldo's Weekly - A New Study Buddy

    ...I thought it was a broom...

    In my game, I’ve been running off of three inspirations that at first don’t sound like they belong together. I’ve been using Peaky Blinders as a bit of a backdrop with what is essentially a gangster story but with elements of Bioshock and Bloodborne adding interesting flavour to the places I have set up.

    Waldo's Weekly - Serving Up Summons

    I would love to see a preview of Tara, but I have a rather heavy bias.

    Power Looping in TTB?

    Not that I’m aware of. However, in M2E, Charles Hoffman hands that condition out like cheap Halloween candy so it could theoretically be done with Ability Based Manifested Powers.

    Info about the Badlands

    I basically imagined the badlands as basically being an embodiment of the “Wierd West” complete with morally ambiguous or bankrupt sheriffs and zombies dueling with magics guns at high noon.

    Surgical Instruments and Weapon Mods

    So, I think by now a new ruling is in order just so that Shotgun Surgeon is possible

    Surgical Instruments and Weapon Mods

    “You see that guy, you know, the one in that fancy doctor get up?” ”Yeah? What about em?” ”Rumor has it that he got some steamfitters to affix weird industrial stuff to his bag, heard the thing’s a functional shotgun. They call him The Doctor, not a very clever name, I know.” ”Howabout, The Shotgun Surgeon?” ”Whatever the case, do not let him point that bag at you, got it!?”

    Necrochemist and Rusts n' Oils Talents somewhat marginalised?

    Well, if your poisons are SOMEHOW capable of attacking a robot’s nonexistent immune system, it should probably deliver the full effect.

    Surgical Instruments and Weapon Mods

    Psch, he’s probably just jealous

    Surgical Instruments and Weapon Mods

    But who doesn’t want a finely tuned steam powered surgical scalpel with attached shotgun?

    Where to find more lore for TTB?

    In the Penny Dreadfuls’s ive read, a lot of the things that happen, happen to the Fated. Even in the adventures that aren’t about the fated in the grand scheme, the fates do have opportunities to make serious impacts through seemingly small things (a great example being Northern Aggression)

    Starting Earthside

    What about if a burning man breach opened in the bayou, then you could have earth gremlins, but they would suffer huge social struggles.

    Where to find more lore for TTB?

    Look into the Breachside Broadcast, a podcast which tells the stories published in a variety of sources presumably in chronological order.

    Newbie questions

    Basically, but with Margins of Failure, it would determine how bad the character would fail, perhaps leading to more dire consequences than first expected.
  23. Steamtastic Vagabond

    Suppliments still good?

    Yep, just need to adjust to rules ever so slightly.

    Newbie questions

    If you had to beat both 8T and 10M, besting the higher would mean that you would only need to beat 10M, when in actuality you effectively need to beat 10TM

    Monsters and Triggers

    How I believe it works (and have been doing so for the last year) is that whatever the players pull up on their defensive flip is the suit the monster uses. For instance, if a player flipped a ram defending against Flash Photography, the Guild Reporter would be considered to have flipped a ram as well, and may use “Hey, look over here” Hope this helps
