comment What skill list should I use for a game set in ancient Greece?
After having discussed some things on chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/17620228#17620228, I do know even better that I know nothing about making Fate skill lists.

I'm not sure about the social skills. I do not expect a lot of large-scale social conflict, although Athenian democracy (decisions on going to war, Socrates' Apologia) is important in the setting, and so are performances (music, epic poems, theatre). I also dislike the name “Manipulate”, because I also imagine it as the skill Socrates uses to ask you pointy questions. Can someone with a better grasp of social skills in Fate improve upon my ideas?

There is a more general question on skipping scenes (such as the walk from the tavern to the market here) at rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/47038/…

I feel this question could be improved and better tagged, but I don't know how and am looking forward to comments or edits.

comment Would motivating a Stout Pacifist to join a war be a Compel or Invoke?
Interesting analysis, not just answering the question but also a good go-to example for me when I next try to explain Fate to a group of players.

comment FAE or Dungeon World as first game for kids, rusty DM?
Have you run any of these in a similar context yourself? What from the linked thread makes you say that World of Dungeons is an even better choice than Dungeon World?

The increase in dice pool is explicitly stated on page 164, with example…

If it is due to fire affinity, shouldn't Isawa Butaro then roll 5k3 (4 = Fire 3 + Rank 1 + 1 for affinity, keeping Fire) instead of the 4k3 given in the example?
