The sun is broken. The heart of Gov, the four-in-one saviour, staggers through the sky, drenching the starving lands in burning light, or plunging them into frozen night. The deserts drown fertile lands in sand and dust. This is the price we paid to stop the Emergency, and the Church will never let us forget the debt we owe. Twice before, fiery relics fell from the sun, destroying the lands and peoples below. Nothing grows where these splinters of a broken sun touch the earth-- nothing but knowledge of the lore lost in the Emergency, for those who can claim these relics. Now, the sun has lurched to a halt once again, and four youths stand ready to try and claim the new blessing... if they can survive its arrival.

Must go fast!

Just finished listening to Chapter 6 and was super engaged with the everything going on in this battle as the group tries to get to safety in a broken ship. The group works very well together and they seem to be having a lot of fun as they continue to make great references throughout the episode. The DM does a fantastic job of keeping the story going and helping out the players as needed. There are some audio issues during the episode but it is all explained at the very beginning which I really appreciated. So far a great story with interesting characters and I am curious where they are headed next. Also love the ship, “Gotta go fast!”

Underrated System and Great World

There are not enough FATE actual plays in the world and this is a wonderful one. A great world that feels full and fleshed out from the jump with a great sci-fantasy vibe to it. Wonderful, and interesting characters and the GM does a wonderful job with the flow of the story. If you haven't started listening yet you need to fix that.

Fated to be awesome

Only a few episodes into Splinters but I was immediately drawn in to the setting and the shows set up. You get to dive right into this world and see things from the naive characters POV and it feels like really well-crafted sci-fi from the start.

I have only played a little bit of the Fate system before, but I think that it lends itself really well to these kind of imaginative stories, and I am excited to see where this goes in the future.
