Hello Happy Jackers!
I recently picked both Fate Accelerated and Fate Core. I've read through FAE and just starting Core. I'm thinking of using it to run all kinds of things. Maybe World of Darkness, L5R, Supers, Korean Historical Fantasy, and all kinds of others. But what have you done with it?
I've run a Fate Accelerated game for my group a few times. The PCs are a mixed group of magically-capable people, working for an obscure government agency. My original idea for the theme was Harry Potter Aurors meet X-Files. My gaming buddies, on the other hand, kind of made it into Quentin Tarantino presents Men in Black. A bit of a shift, but everyone had fun. Definitely a system I'll be going back to some time.
Preferred Game Systems: Fate, L5R, Pendragon, Gumshoe, Feng Shui Currently Playing: Pendragon, Song of Ice and Fire, L5R, Feng Shui, Traveller Currently Running: Fate, Coriolis, Nights Black Agents Favorite Species of Monkey: 1970's NTV, dubbed by the BBC (though The Water Margin beats it)
To date I've not tried too much with Fate, I've run Dresden Files which worked pretty well. I've also played in a short Accelerated game in a western setting mixed with vampires which was great fun, mostly as the GM was really good.
Samurai World Here's the latest updated stuff. Though knowing him, he's done a lot more that he hasn't updated. Though, that's probably because he's busy with Bulldogs.
Some of the other problems that arose in my game, is mostly on me, and getting too into the role-playing with the PC's with NPC's and not getting them to the meat of the scenario i wrote. Like our last session, which everyone had a blast with, was very much like role-playing a 3 hour morning of the characters lives. There was drama and fun and tension, but it's the third session, and no one has any idea what is actually going on or what they are supposed to do.
And that is all on me.
Mysteries in Fate often don't work as well like they d in other systems, because at the heart of Fate, you can make an Investigation roll, and figure out the majority of the mystery.

I used FAE to run a very loose Halloween game, where the characters turned into their costumes. I had read the book before, but never ran it. And only one other person in the group had even heard of it before. All I required was that they have their costume picked out, and we built the characters as we played.
