Is the Fate Spinner entry in the Weaving Prophecy section mostly lore or is there some mechanics with that as well?

will it be possible to buy each issue of the gazette independently without subscribing to the patreon? i noticed issue 0 can be purchased on drivethrurpg directly

We don't know at this stage. If it happens (and I'm not saying it will) there will be a delay, and it will cost more than the Patreon. But that's definitely an "if".

Right so the Fate Spinner is the lore behind those? Mostly my question is that the cosmic spider is not a stat block or something.
Yep, the fatespinner is the lore behind the culture and the destiny. It's a cosmic level thing, more akin to a deity than a monster.

Hmmm....the Bladeseer archetype makes me imagine a fighter holding a blade before their face, and using it as a medium to briefly foretell the future (to gain Advantage on their next ability score check, their next saving throw, their next skill check or the next opponent they face) or to briefly glimpse somewhere else and through someone else's blade. ;) The latter being perfect for recon missions or in those moments where the party has to split up into doing side missions. A Bladeseer with the Two-Weapon Fighting style could probably link their blades together for this particular ability. :) The Defiant Berserker? The ability to defy anyone's attempt to track or learn anything about them through divination magic? As for the Loreweaver, uses divination during a Performance to gain intel. ;) The Revoker Herald, someone capable of breaking curses, infernal contracts and the like?

As for a Fate-related warlock, what if the patron is the Fatespinner itself?

When I see the preview image of the spiderfolk I want to say "Hello there".
6 sun blades!

Certainly the Sci-Fi and Sci-Fantasy system book with psionics and laser swords would be pertinent to your interests...

Especially since it's designed, from the ground up, to be an expansion of the Level Up system rather than using a vastly different balance metric. So you can play the Spiderfolk as Voidrunners with a buncha laserswords and psionic power.

Fun note: I helped name the book!
