BLUF: This is not Fate Core. I was looking to use this as a toolkit to modify other settings I was using. That can't happen.
The rules are so different that it is for all intents a completely different game using Fudge dice. Some of the terminolgy is the same but the dissimilarities are jarring. I have tried this system before with Nova Praxis, but it is just too much to try to learn a new set of rules that "seem" like the old set of rules, but isn't.
I am giving it three stars because it is a fairly good engine. And that is the problem. It isn't as good as Fate Core. The production values, art, editing, etc just isn't to the same standard. The rules themselves are ok. They are trying to be like Fate Core but also crunchier and that just doesn't work...at least not for me. Fate-likes are narrative games at center and just don't do crunchy well.
I wanted better but felt dissappointed.
[3 of 5 Stars!]
