Kickstarter: Fate Core. Only 5 hours left!

So,  I have been thinking of expanding a bit on this site into talking a bit about cool thing people are trying to get made. 

I was going to give it some more serious thought before my first post in this vein but had somehow missed this Fate Core kickstarter until the last few hours. Currently there are less than 5 hours left.

If you spend $1 you get a whole gaming system.  If you spend $10 you get 14 expansions. 

The Fate system is as much of a game as it is a system for collaborative story telling. 

Players define their characters by a set of core concepts, and with those concepts they can manipulate the story as they play by spending and aquiring fate.  The DM can persuade characters to follow their narrative by giving them fate, or taking it away. 

I am sorry I don't have more time to share with you just how cool the system is before you need to decide about it but I can tell you, if you are at all into rpg gaming, it will be one of the best dollars you ever spent.  If you go in for the $10 backing you will be getting $70 of gaming content. 

Cheers!
