I’ve been interested in game design and mechanics for some time now, but have never made any attempts myself. Of course the only way to learn is to try, so here I am.
I don’t have any desire to try to build my own system. This is mostly an extended “I wonder if…” kind of thing. As in “I wonder if I could port Exalted over to FATE?” I know that this isn’t the first attempt at this conversion, but it is my first attempt.* I’m hoping that by taking a game setting (Exalted) that I know really well, and a system (FATE) that works really well**, I’ll be able to learn a thing or two about game design.
That’s the hope any way. Suppose I’ll just have to wait and see if it works out that way.
** lets face it, FATE rocks your face off
