We’ve been experimenting with a type of stunt in our group—it seems to work well, but I wanted to (1) make sure I haven’t broken anything important, and (2) share the idea in case anyone else finds it useful.
Essentially the idea is a stunt (costing 1 refresh) that grants 2 Fate points that can only be used to invoke a single, specific aspect. In our group, for example, we have a police officer with a magical police dog partner. (Think Mouse from the Dresden Files.) We aren’t using any henchmen extras or anything complex, so the dog is simply one of her aspects that comes to the rescue doing things magical dogs do at the cost of one Fate point. This stunt essentially gives her 1 extra Fate point at the cost of tying two Fate points exclusively to a single aspect. (I even made us a couple of special tokens with the picture of her dog on them.) So far this seems to be working pretty well! I won’t claim credit for the idea, I feel like I’ve read it somewhere before (although I can’t find it off hand…)
Any reservations from the group?
