I've been involved in one aspect or another of the adventure games hobby for the past twenty-five years. Started playing in 1987. (First game? Champions, followed by CyberSpace, the Iron Crown cyberpunk game for Space Master, their sci-fi Rolemaster spin-off.) Was hired by InQuest Magazine in 1996, where I started my editorial career. Since then, I've done work for Green Ronin, Malhavoc Press, Dream Pod 9, and White Wolf. I managed two different game stores in the metro Boston area in the 2000s, and am now working primarily freelance. Still gaming after all these years.

I have a weakness for good coffee and bad puns.

Although the question involves a rule, it's not about mechanics generally, nor does it engage with the FATE system.

Oh, good. I can just vote your entry up rather than compose one of my own.

Also: do you have access to books besides the H:tV book and the World of Darkness core rules? Books like Witch Finders and Second Sight might be useful for converting magical ability. Otherwise, I'll be reskinning powers that exist in those two books.

By "2e skills," I take it you mean Non-Weapon Proficiencies and the like? I recall that D&D before 3rd edition didn't have a robust skill system.
