comment Mini Six: How can I avoid the “dodge” skill tax?
Yep, a skill like Athletics or Acrobatics should help to calculate Dodge if you want a cinematic feel. For a more realistic and gritty game, it could be Tactics or Firearms to imply that you don't actually dodge the bullets but just avoid being shot at properly in the first place.

comment Expand the numeric scale of Strands of Fate
I'd argue that once you get the hang of using aspects and fate points, you may well play the game without skill levels and dice, and have more fun at it :)

comment How do environmental conditions and scene aspects stack in FATE?
Every FATE implementation is somehow different and I can't say any of them is wrong. It's a matter of playing style. It just happens that SM's aren't my style :) In a prolonged encounter, I would not keep the same guy rolling stealth. I'd have him roll once and keep the result throughout the encounter, and using that as a base, I'd let him invoke aspects to modify it whenever the need arises.

comment How long does True Shapeshifting take in Dresden Files?
If they haven't made their proper research, also inform them that the shuttle isn't designed to go beyond low earth orbit. A trip to the moon would require a gargantuan fuel tank many times bigger than the one it is currently carrying. And once there, it has no means to land, and no means to start a trip back home. It's a fun endeavor though :D

comment Do consequences grant you Fate points when compelled by opponents?
In the case mentioned, it would be the GM doing the compelling, not you, and you cannot receive the fate point if the compelled player rejects the compel. So I'm still right that you cannot compel for free. You can only cause a compel for free, not make one.
