The default assumption for the system is that aspects will be refreshed at
the beginning of every session. However, that is definitely not the only
option. Aspects could easily refresh:
•At the end of every scene
•Each day
•When the PCs get a chance to rest
•At any significant story point
Changing the refresh rate will have some impact on the flavor of the game,
with more frequent refreshes being well suited to a more cinematic game,
where the characters can consistently do remarkable things. Feel free to
experiment with various options to see what suits your style best.
One issue to bear in mind is that the more aspects the characters have, the
less need there is for regular refreshes. If the characters have many aspects,
there’s less need to make them refresh more often.

What’s That
Smell?

In a horror game, The Crazy
Guy tackles a vampire at a gas
station where he’s been hiding.
He checks off a box of his
“Smelly” aspect to declare that
everyone suddenly notices that
the usual smell of decay has
been replaced by the smell of
gasoline. The Crazy guy then
flicks his bic, and both he and
the vampire go up in flames.

Involuntary
Aspect Invocation

Cyrus is faced with the
opportunity to stand and fight
against an onrushing horde or
to hop on his horse and flee to
safety. The GM looks at this
situation and decides that this is
a pretty good time to invoke
Cyrus’ Self Destructive aspect.
Cyrus has the aspect at level 2,
so he has 2 options - he can pay
2 Fate points to the GM to go
against his nature, or he can
stand and fight, in which case
the GM awards him with 2 Fate
points.

Not all situations are so dire.
Cyrus’ partner Finn has the
Larcenous aspect at level 1, and
at a party full of rich nobles, his
fingers are just itching to pick a
pocket or two. He could spend
a Fate point to resist the urge,
or he could play to his nature
and get a bonus Fate point (and
risk getting caught).
