Fate Accelerated Rules Corner: Aspects
Aspects are a central part of Fate. The book defines aspects as.
“An aspect is a word or phrase that describes something special about a person, place, thing, situation, or group. Almost anything you can think of can have aspects. A person might be the Greatest Swordswoman on the Cloud Sea. A room might be On Fire after you knock over an oil lamp. After a time-travel encounter with a dinosaur, you might be Terrified. Aspects let you change the story in ways that go along with your character’s tendencies, skills, or problems.
You spend fate points which you keep track of with pennies or glass beads or poker chips or some other tokens to unlock the power of aspects and make them help you. You earn fate points by letting a character aspect be compelled against you to complicate the situation or make your life harder. Be sure to keep track of the fate points you have left at the end of the session if you have more than your refresh, you start the next session with the fate points you ended this session with.”1
Aspects help drive the story and define the world. They are mainly used in two ways to invoke to help you out or as a compel hindering you.
When you invoke an aspect you may either re-roll an roll you didn’t like or add +2 to a roll. The trick is you must be able to narrate who your aspect applies.
When an aspect is compelled it either restricts your actions or makes your life harder. In this case the GM will give you a fate point. For example a Jedi may not be able to kill an unarmed opponent, or someone hunted by the Chae crime family may get a fate point of they show up to make life harder.
