comment A fellow player does not want me to roleplay, what do I do?
@trlky You're assuming Wesley downvoted, and that's an unsafe assumption to make - you have no such information. But also, answers are expected to respond to the entirety of the question independently here. See the meta Q. That may be just our policy or interpretation, but nevertheless that's the expectation here. (And if an answer doesn't, it could mean bad things for its usefulness, since it might be ignoring a large part of the problem in its approach.)

comment How can I use anger as an aspect to contribute to fire spells?
I've made an edit to convey what I have in mind about just leaving it to group buy-in, not GM buy-in. Please check to see if you're okay with it and, of course, edit or roll back as you wish.

edited to emphasize the role of group decision making, rather than GM-only decision making, in accordance with DFRPG's ethos

@IgneusJotunn Ok, thanks for that. Considering DFRPG's attitude on the GM not necessarily being the one to decide, I feel this answer should probably emphasize group buy-in on the idea rather than talk about what the GM accepts or doesn't. (The GM just being a part of the group, they have no more particular say over accepting something than anyone else does, or at least that's my understanding.)

comment How can I use anger as an aspect to contribute to fire spells?
This answer puts a lot on the GM allowing/disallowing stuff, and asking the GM if something's okay. I was under the impression that in Fate, this would be a whole-of-table thing: ask all fellow players if it's okay or not okay and decide with them; the GM doesn't have any exclusive authority in the matter. The get-the-GM's-permission thing sounds more like a trait of D&D's attitude on the DM role, not actually something typically done in Fate (and in fact I've edited mentions of DM to GM in your answer). Is it different in Dresden Files?

comment How can we protect a ship from magical rain of Acid?
@SevenSideDie There's no real difference between 'rain of acid' and 'acid rain'. Acid necessarily contains water (otherwise it is inert), acidic rain necessarily is water that contains acid, so either way you wind up with exactly the same thing: acid with water in some ratio, which is falling from the sky. The only difference between regular acid rain and this magical rain of acid would be the strength of the acidity and the fact one's magic, but they're still both correctly described as a rain of acid and as acid rain.

@GMJoe that's 'cause it doesn't really have anything to say on the matter; it's just slightly higher on the same page as the quote I provided.

comment How to build a tank out of the fighter class
Is multiclassing allowed? If so, to what extent? (Consider that you may get answers that say to go fighter 1, then spend all your other levels in another unrelated class.)
