comment What to do when a great idea comes too soon?
My Star Wars campaign started, in the first adventure, with the players imprisoned on a Star Destroyer in battle, sabotaging and destroying it from the inside before escaping the wreck. It's pretty rare for an epic universe to fail because the heroes were too awesome.

comment What skill to oppose undodgeable energy weapons attack rolls?
@STTLCU: You don't prevent repeated justifications like "I take cover behind rocks". That's reasonable narrative under the circumstances; firing from cover at the enemy is exactly the right response to undodgeable plasma fire. You're already trying to rule out the Matrix/Feng Shui "acrobatics" solution... if you rule out "take cover" as well, you'll be left with "stand still and pray hard". (Remember that they'll have to generate some new aspects if they want free invokes, though.)

comment How can I Help a New GM Get Started?
Is this the original World-of-Darkness Changeling ("The Dreaming"), or the new World of Darkness version ("The Lost")? I presume the new one, but it will make a difference to some answers.

comment How Fate games could go wrong and how to prevent that
@JohnRobertson: You were aware that most RPGs don't, in fact, simulate the real difficulties of sniper fire, right? (Although if it's important to your game that you do... those +2 tag bonuses can just as easily be "Training From A Master", "Scope HUD Predicts The Path" and "Target Standing Still".)
