I cannot find any way to buy/download the "Fate System Toolkit" book. I see that there was a kickstarter that would have granted me access to the book, but as far as I know, it is over now. I am too late! :(

So, does somebody know any way to buy/get a pdf copy of that book?

Isn't it not out yet, except for a draft version? I'm sure it will become available when it's done. –  okeefe Aug 24 '13 at 12:04
@okeefe Kyalur does say "different than waiting for the release." –  BESW Aug 24 '13 at 13:24
I read that with the kickstarter they gave the book, but I don't know how finished it is. So probably is a draft, yeah :D –  Kyalur Aug 24 '13 at 13:26
@gomad If being answerable by "a quick Google search" were reason to close a question, we'd lose a lot of questions. I believe we've firmly established that while lack of research makes for poor questions, it isn't itself close-worthy. –  BESW Oct 7 '13 at 15:05

It is available as a pay-what-you-like (including free) download.

Since Evil Hat recently made the Toolkit available under OGL, you can download the pdf from rpgnow.com or drivethrustuff.com.

And anyone with the Kickstarter pdf is legally able to share it with you if you're in their campaign.

[Now that the Toolkit is published and OGL (see above) this answer is outdated, but I'll leave it here for the historical record.]

It's that simple, and that complex: the pre-publication pdfs are sharable within groups for playtesting purposes. You might come into chat some time and see if anyone can run some online sessions (with fancy Toolkit bits) with you so you qualify; if I find the time, I'll do it!---

This product is now available on DriveThruRPG.com for a "pay what you want" price. Don't be one of THOSE people and pay a reasonable amount for it (I paid $10 and think I might have undersold it) but it's there now!

You can order it online at the Evil Hat web store.

The link is right here. Also, if you know anyone who has a PDF copy, you can ask them for a copy of it and they are quite allowed to give it to you: Fate Core, Fate Accelerated and Fate System Toolkit are licensed under Creative Commons.
