I have the opportunity to run an RPG at the local Library games day, which carries with it some stipulations:
- The players are likely new to pen & paper RPGs entirely. (And if they're not, they're almost certainly new to Fate since it's not well known around here.)
- I likely have people for 2 hours, and it won't be a recurring game (as it's an introduction), so I can't spend an hour helping people create characters and the setting on the spot.
- Given the nature of the event, I won't know who is playing in advance, or their ages (except that they're pretty unlikely to be younger than 12).
Other people have run games like D&D at these before, so I want to run Fate to showcase something different, and because I think it'd be a hit with people here if they get to try it out. The difficulty I'm having is that while D&D has the beginner box, for example, I haven't found an equivalent that really says "if you're new to the game, play this first to get an idea of how things all work."
I don't need a fully written adventure, although I'm not opposed to that. All I really need is a starting point, with a setting set up with some basic goals and premade characters that I can then let people customize and then turn loose. I have seen some published settings from Evil Hat, but given my criteria it's hard to know which of them would work and which wouldn't, as I have no experience with any of them.
It's also worth mentioning that I'm a newbie to Fate as well, and haven't run it at all. I intend to do that with friends a coupe of times before going to the library though. In the case of my friends, as I know exactly who is playing, it was easy to decide on a setting (Pinkie Pie's zany adventures).
