Dorkly.com have hit the nail on the head again, weilding their comedy hammer with skill and dexterity. I’ve done this. Have you?
Evil Hat Production has leveraged the power of Patreon and burgeoning support for Fate Core material to crank out some top notch supplements and adventures for their game.
