comment How to handle the magical girl genre in Fate Core?
I really want to answer, but I need more information about this genre and how you want to play: Genre questions: Do the characters risk running out of juice in the middle of a fight or do they only transform when dramatically appropriate? Do the girls find clever uses for their powers and turn them into signature moves? Is there tension between cooperation and competition? Game questions: Do you want hard decisions about power management to be part of the game? Is there significant differentiation between power levels of your PCs?

comment Where do adventurers keep all their stuff?
If this sort of logistical problem floats your boat, it may be worth your time to check out Torchbearer, an FRPG where strictly limited inventory and the management thereof is central to the gameplay.

comment What to do when a great idea comes too soon?
@ThorstenS.- I really wish you wouldn't! I didn't vote for the other answer, either. I just wanted to give you some feedback and I thought a comment would be better than just a downvote. Others find his answer better and here's my guess at why: More directed advice, fewer stories of personal experience? Please consider editing instead of deleting!

@ThaneBrimhall - I do too! But for a long time now, I have been more interested in games that tend to create the play I want.

comment Using (android) tablet as a virtual online whiteboard
And having not used the paid version is why I couldn't answer with this, which was my first thought! I didn't know if you could draw / update maps from the tablet version, so thanks for the info!
