comment What better not to use Fate Core for?
@thedarkwanderer - It's close enough for the purposes of this argument. There were very minimal changes made between Fate 3.0 and Fate Core. And in fact, my DFRPG game in the end is played with Fate Core and those few changes for veterans, so not really an applicable dismissal.

comment What better not to use Fate Core for?
I've run mysteries several times in my DFRPG game (which, since the main character in the base source is a detective, I'd hope it would support). I've made some stumbles in setting things up sometimes, but for the most part, the tools have already been there in order to create enjoyable mysteries with the mystery still in the game.

comment Do special materials augment skills other than weapon skills?
@Paul - that problem is taken care of also in treasure companion. There are spells that alchemists use to make materials of superior quality (mithril, laen, eog, etc) workable.

@SevenSidedDie - so now with the edit, some (all?) of the answers are invalid. What do we do about that?

This isn't specifically a fate core question, nor about fate core implementations.

comment How much creative and descriptive power should I offer my players? Is it different for sandbox campaigns?
I still disagree with that assumption that you have to have something in your back pocket in order to still have the wonder of exploration. As stated, players, including the GM, have the right to introduce things- even in relation to encounters. The GM still has right of refusal and editing, but when you play to see what happens instead of playing to get through the story, a different dynamic comes out of that minor distinction.

comment Sneak attacks in Fate Core
@Nigralbus - that doesn't mean you're denying the opposition the skill, though. It's a situational and GM call. You can use the opposition's skill as the set number under certain situations.
