Campaigns

I have been highly inspired to create a way to manage campaigns for fatecharactersheet.com. My inspiration comes from an app called Campaign Logger by Johnn Four. If you are not familiar with his app I highly recommend you check it out (https://campaign-logger.com/).

Now, that being said, this app is inspired by his app, but has nowhere near the depth of features. So, on the surface it is similar. If you are a GM that runs lots of campaigns and plays often I urge you to use Johnn Four’s application because it’s that good. However, if you’re like me and you just don’t GM often enough to warrant a monthly subscription fee, well, then maybe this lighter version is for you. And, this tool isn’t limited to just Fate, you can use it for any RPG you run.

We are currently in beta for this feature and you can check it out by logging into the beta site @ http://bit.ly/fcs-beta. (Please note, that once we go live, anything you’ve done on the beta site is only available on the beta site). Once you’ve logged in, click on the My Campaigns link to start.

When you enter text into your session logs you can type special characters around your important things to let the campaign tool know that the thing you entered should show up in the summary. For more information on the special characters click on the Help Icon next to the Session Log.

Have fun, and please, submit bug reports using the “Submit Issues” link under the Support menu!

Character Portraits

If you didn’t know it was available, once you’ve saved a character scroll to the bottom of the character edit screen and you’ll see a portrait URL input box. Type in a proper URL that points to an image and it will show up on the Character List screen (see attached screenshot).

If the sheet you are using has an actual portrait field on the sheet (right now the only one that has this is the Mouse Guard sheet) then when you fill in your portrait URL and save your character it will display the portrait on your character sheet.

Fate of Cthulhu

Cthulhu Mythos has always fascinated me. Crazy cultists and great Old Ones vying for power while insignificant humans struggle to prevent the world from devolving into a chaotic, evil mess all while battling their own slowly deteriorating mind.

Yeah, yeah. I’m a little sadistic, sue me!

When I found out that Evil Hat launched a Kickstarter for Fate of Cthulhu, let’s say I was a little intrigued. And then when I discovered that this was more of a Terminator/Cthulhu mashup. I mean, what’s left to say. Take my money!

I was excited enough to create a new character sheet for the game even before it’s officially out. Check out the new Fate of Cthulhu character sheet at Fate Character Sheet.
