Psychedemia: A World of Adventure for Fate Core

The latest World of Adventure from the +Evil Hat Productions Patreon is now available on DriveThruRPG: Psychedemia, by some hack. Psychedemia is a science fiction setting in which teenage psychics discover a hidden mental realm and make friends with its residents while being trained by the military to fight those same aliens.

I can't give an legitimate review of the text, but I will point out the incredible art by +Manuela Soriani which brings the world to full-color life. And I'll thank the rest of the team at Evil Hat (including editor +John Adamus and developer +Brian Engard) for making the process an absolute pleasure.

In a discussion on Google+, I was asked how the psychic aptitudes from Psychedemia could be used in a more standard Fate Core game with psychic characters beside non-psychics. The answer is that it would be pretty easy.

Extra: Psychic Aptitude

Permission: An aspect indicating your character possesses psychic aptitude.
Cost: Skill ranks, invested in one or more psychic aptitude skills.

This extra works as described in Psychedemia, pp. 22-26, with the exception that conditions can only be used for extreme effort and not for absorbing stress.

It is the second edition of Discworld RPG, following the original GURPS Discworld published in 1998 and reprinted under the Discworld RPG name in 2002.

For those who may not be familiar, Discworld is the setting of an extremely popular series of fantasy novels written by Sir Terry Pratchett. The Disc consists of a flat, circular plane resting on the backs of four elephants who in turn stand on the shell of an enormous turtle which swims through space. It began as a fairly traditional — if satirical — fantasy world, but through over 40 novels, Pratchett advanced the setting into a rich canvas on which to poke fun at the peculiarities of modern life.

The first edition of the Discworld RPG was based on GURPS Third Edition, and it included GURPS Lite, a pared down version of the core system. Still, it relied perhaps too much on knowledge of th…
