Exactly so. D&D 3 and at least three instances of Fate sit unplayed on my shelves; I have more class-and-level games and more instances of Fate in electronic form that I don't use either. And several instances of Gumshoe. But my dislike of them has nothing to do with dice types, the number of dice used, or the mechanics used. I like all sorts of genres and tones in their places, so long as camapigns are consistent. My issue with player agency is not that Fate demands too much, but that it demands that it be exercised in ways and areas that I don't care for.It's not about "how much", but "what kind". Nobody I've met ever decided not to play Fate because of the number or form of the dice. I know a lot of people who decided not to play it on account of the Fate point metacurrency. Or the aspects system. Likewise, I know many people who don't like classes and levels, and will hence not play D&D - whether it has d20s has never been a point of contention.
Thanks, I just added it to the Expanded System Summary.Lethality?
