Questions about the Fate system concept of Consequences, which usually represent lingering negative effects.

Consequences are a way of dealing with incoming damage in Fate; generally they can be used instead of or in addition to a Stress track to absorb a hit. Stress is generic and clears at the end of the scene; Consequences are Aspects representing specific effects, which can be free-form or predefined, and clear at various rates and degrees of character involvement depending on the implementation.
