One thing I notice about games like D&D 5e (and to a much greater extent 4e) is that because it works in a sort of building block system of adding feats and class abilities together you can build some unique and fun situations by just combining ideas.
As an example, multiclassing a paladin and warlock lets you fuel your smite with warlock spell slots. Mechanically that's powerful, but you can interpret it narratively as using eldritch powers in creative ways! I find that reanalysis extremely fun.
Or to keep the examples diverse multiclassing ranger and monk (not strictly opposed narratively, but still distinct tropes) and focusing on choices that benefit from high wisdom and dexterity mechanically, but then doubling down on what that means for the character narratively.
However, as I'm learning more about Fate and its stunt system, it feels like you go narrative first, so this building block system doesn't work, and it's harder (for me) to generate the same cool feeling by reanalysis of the mechanics.
If I can just say, reflavour a smite stunt to be powered by eldritch energies I don't feel like I've captured the cool factor from combining narratively opposed ideas.
Although not all combinations from D&D are balanced, being able to just combine things is easy.
Making stunts that capture similar feelings feels much harder, and with fewer existing stunts to lean on, I'm struggling with how to write them without a campaign in mind.
In that case can I practice writing stunts that capture this narrative feeling?
