comment Replacing skills with approaches and vice versa
@illotum - agreed, that's why I said narrative and gave the +1. It's a good thing to keep in mind, but doesn't invalidate the argument. :)

comment Replacing skills with approaches and vice versa
+1. Though with a caveat. Approaches seem to model the narrative more than skills. If you use piloting, it is not inherent in that use how you are approaching the problem. If you use stealthy to pilot the ship, it is implied that your approach to the problem is stealthy.

revised Where can I find a foldable character sheet for The Dresden Files
The reason that Diaspora was on it was to give context, since these sheets are from that game.

comment Do you have to reveal your NPC's aspects?
@SevenSidedDie - I totally agree with your comment to a point. However, I did want to point out that secret Aspects are not really a contradiction, as you can discover aspects that are on a 'character' in the scene through the use of skills.
