Fate Accelerated Planet of the Apes – Caesar, Blue Eyes, Ash, Maurice and Koba

I am too young to have seen the original Planet of the Apes series. However, I was blown away by the dramatic impact of the 2011 reboot of the series through Rise of the Planet of the Apes. 20th Century Fox delivered a fantastic sequel with the 2014 Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. In honor of the upcoming 2017 War for the Planet of the Apes, I present Fate Accelerated conversions of the series’ greatest Apes!

The 20th Century Fox Planet of the Apes reboot is a great foundation for stories about the base nature of man, the use (and abuse) of technology, the power of language and the shape of leadership. I hope these character conversions serve as a useful resource for your Fate Accelerated Planet of the Apes Tabletop RPG Story Arcs. I am very excited about the upcoming 2017 War for the Planet of the Apes and I would really enjoying hearing your thoughts on the new series and what you think this film holds for us. Thank you.
