Are there any recordings of serious campaigns played in Fate Core out there?

By serious I do not disqualify games which contains humour and jokes (can it be even avoided?) but games which were obviously started for comical reasons.

I am specifically looking for video recordings.


There is actually a Fate Game Room On this site. (Currently locked for inactivity unfortunately) But in it's transcript you will find many discussions about Fate, and some games that were played there.

There is even a transcript of a 1 on 1 game I had introducing me to Fate (using the FAE rules) with BESW; Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.

Other than that, there are many youtube videos that show people playing games (Note: Some of these videos are a bit loose with the rules). It is not hard to find people playing, discussing, or liking Fate -- it's great!.

So unless you were looking for something very specific (which you did not mention in your question) I think you came to the right place!

  • \$\begingroup\$ I've clarified - I've been thinking about video recordings specifically. Funny that my youtubeing only gave me gazillion of 'how to play' and 'review' videos. My Youtube-fu must be low today. \$\endgroup\$ – Maurycy May 7 '14 at 13:41

    \$\begingroup\$ I've looked into some of these videos, and some aren't actually following Fate Core's rules - they're still using holdover rules, like the apparently common mistake that you still need to spend a fate point on an aspect in order to use it or let it justify anything. Might be worth making a warning about that. \$\endgroup\$ – doppelgreener May 7 '14 at 13:45
  • \$\begingroup\$ @doppelgreener: In the current edition of Fate Core and Fate Accelerated Edition, to "use" an Aspect (invoke it), you do need to spend a Fate Point, unless through some action you've received a free invocation of that particular aspect (succeed on a Create an Advantage action). I know this comment is a few years old at this point, but clarifying that it seems to no longer be accurate? \$\endgroup\$ – MidnightLightning Apr 13 '16 at 22:07

    \$\begingroup\$ @Midnight We are on the same page there on invokes, but I'm talking about invoking for effect which is a removed feature in FC/FA, and very different to a regular invocation. Past editions would say someone with "out of ammo" isn't actually out of ammo until that aspect was invoked for effect. Likewise someone's my grandfather's sword aspect wouldn't let them do swordy stuff unless they were invoking it for effect... etc. Nowadays all of that is just automatic. You're out of bullets and you have a sword. \$\endgroup\$ – doppelgreener Apr 13 '16 at 22:23
