So as of the writing of this blog my most recently played RPG would be Dresden Files. For any of you that have not played this game I can not encourage you enough go out and find a game of Dresden!
Beneath the “normal” surface of the world are things and people who most of us don’t want to know about, and will do our best to forget about if we ever come near them. People won’t see what they don’t want to see.
But that’s most of us. And you’re not most of us
The book is a pure joy to read and you really feel like you are part of the Harry Dresden universe while your reading this book. The book itself is filled with sidebars and notes from Dresden and other characters from the novels. This kicks the game immersion up another notch and makes the book itself more enjoyable to read. As well as giving you a feel for the world your playing in. It is little things like this that elevate games to a level far above the rest.
Dresden Files runs off the FATE system and it really shows how a well done setting for Fate makes FATE games Shine! If you are unsure of how good the FATE systems might be or have never played a game with the FATE rules, give this book a long look.
One of the best parts of Dresden Files is that the FATE system complements the setting well. Non combat characters can still be effective in dangerous situations as long as they play smart. This alone is one of my favorite things about FATE. How many of you have played Dresden Files? Do you like it as much as I do or not ? Feel free to comment below.
