From p. 56 of Fate Core
An aspect is a phrase that describes something unique or noteworthy about whatever it’s attached to. They’re the primary way you spend and gain fate points, and they influence the story by providing an opportunity for a character to get a bonus, complicating a character’s life, or adding to another character’s roll or passive opposition.
Types of Aspects
- Game Aspects – Describe problems or threats that exist in the world
