The Small Folk: FATE-powered Urban Fantasy

The Small Folk

Phil Masters has announced his my first venture into online self-publishing; The Small Folk.

The Small Folk have been lurking on the margins of human society since before the dawn of history, but we humans don’t tend to notice them. They’re really good at hiding from us. They’re also good at arguing, picking fights, sulking, and splitting up into cliques. But they’re tough, clever (on their good days), and armed with an array of startling magical powers.

The Small Folk is a game of wainscot urban fantasy, built round the popular FATE rules engine. Take your pick of seven different cliques, from aggressive goblins to oh-so-superior brownies and technophile gremlins (or the cliqueless, because some people just have to be different), and an array of skills and magical powers, personalise your character with aspects and stunts, and get out there and get underfoot.

Oh, and watch out for cats, rats, hawks, mousetraps, and your neighbours.

(If anyone is wondering; yes, this is based on the chapter Phil contributed to Guardians of Order’s Dreaming Cities some years ago. But it’s been rebuilt around the Free FATE rules engine and turned into a full-sized book.)

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He blogs at dave.mcalister.org.uk.
