Fantasy Adventure to Adult Lechery is, in theory, a RPG that lets neckbeards live out their rape fantasies. The gaming community has more or less unanimously come to the conclusion that FATAL (aka "The Date Rape RPG...without the dating") is simply the worst RPG ever conceived. No one has ever played a game of FATAL. The rulebook is as terribly written as it is obsessed with bizarre sexual perversions that make /d/ seem prudish by comparison. It is filled with enough pointless random charts and obtuse rules to deter even a veteran /d/M who has played Rolemaster for years. Quadratic equations are a requirement of most game mechanics. The Anal circumference table meme originates with FATAL.
The game was apparently revised and given a new name for the acronym. From Another Time; Another Land makes minor changes to the text (read: removes the magical armor that turns the wearer into an ethnic stereotype) but is still an abortion of gaming.
The FATAL Games website is now thankfully defunct. The current page is some kind of flash portal.
...Are you sure? Are you absolutely sure?
The GM is called the "Aedile" (ee-dial), because that's an actual Latin word for 'master of the colluseum games', or 'game-master' for short. What is it with authors of explicitly smutty rpg materials like this and "The Book of Erotic Fantasy" that they have to be pretentious dicks about it? (Answer: Because in the original version he was... wait for it... the MaimMaster. You may now groan.)
The intro says you only need to know a little algebra, "and even that is relatively rare." It also says you only need two d10. Both of these facts are filthy lies. Ability scores are derived from averaging 'sub-abilities' rolled as 4d100/4-1 and modified by one of three different types of percentages, and conditions during the game may change your subabilities which means you need to recalculate your ability scores on-the-fly. Ability score checks are 3d10, so no you need more than two dice.
The character sheet is eleven pages long. There are 20 sub-abilities (including "Enunciation" and "Spatial Intelligence"), which determine 5 ability scores. The ethics system has "ethic points" which are different from "moral points", four different "temperament" scores based on bodily humours, a primary and secondary temperament in addition to that, and a disposition that is different from that too. On the second page of the character sheet are the following essential measurements: manhood length, manhood circumference, anal circumference potential, vaginal circumference potential, vaginal depth potential, æreola diameter, nipple length, cup size, tongue size, hymen resistance, æreola hue, foot size, fist circumference, head circumference, handedness. These measurements are essential because during combat you can roll "rape" as a combat result, accidentally start raping your opponent, and how many hitpoints they lose depends on the mismatch between your circumference and theirs. In case you missed some of that: it is possible to accidentally rape an opponent to death during normal combat.
Among the four-hundred and eighteen skills each character must keep track of are "Basketweaving" (Hand-Eye, Common Sense), "Clockmaking" (Spatial), "Delousing" (Hand-Eye), "Glovemaking" (Spatial), "Massage" (Kinetic Charisma, Hand-Eye), and "Spitting" (Enunciation).
Character body has seventeen hit-locations, each with independent hit-point totals, each with their own armour equipment slots, and each of the seventeen pieces of armour have four different types of damage resistance (brawling, hacking, pounding and stabbing).
