So eventually I'd like to run a FATE Fantasy game, or rather at least build one. Going with a skeleton to build on I figured the Escaflowne world would be a good basis for stuff as it provides something I'd like to see, that being an anime fantasy, and also giant fantasy mecha which I really enjoy.
We'll be generating the setting in the manner of a mini-game/session affair much like the Dresden thing. This game will use Legends of Anglerre or Strands of FATE depending on which I find less impenetrable. I'll be providing some setting info but I figured that it might help with immersion if everyone has a *thing* they have worked on/written/thought of in the setting. Hopefully what can come out of it will be a hodgepodge setting that other people can use for their games if a fantasy thing is needed.
One other really interesting tool that Legends of Anglerre does is the idea of "future aspects" which basically is a character arc that you decide on. While I won't go so far as to cajole and badger people into having on at the start, the mechanic is a pretty good one for defining characters and essentially shaping your "leveling up" in FATE. I'll provide some sample future aspects for use as well.
