Skill Prompt Cards for Fate (Fate)
Fate Skill Prompt Cards supercharge character creation in Fate Core with questions and other prompts based on central axis of action for your characters: their skills.
This deck contains 18 skill cards for use while playing Fate Core¸ plus an instructions card replicating the instructions below.
HOW TO USE FATE SKILL PROMPT CARDS
These cards map to the 18 default skills in Fate Core. Use them to distribute skills across the character group and to add character details relating to your top skills.
FOR CHOOSING SKILLS AS A GROUP
- First¸ each player claims a different skill card for their top-tier skill (the peak of the pyramid).
- Next¸ each player takes an unclaimed card for a second-tier skill.
- Finally¸ choose any skill you don't have yet for your other second-tier skill (including any someone else already picked).
FOR CHARACTER CONCEPTS
- Top-Tier Skill: Answer two or three questions from that skill's card.
- Second-Tier Skills: Answer one or two questions from those skills' cards.
- Work these answers into your character's backstory and aspects as desired.
