Hackable: Cypher System + FATE Accelerated

I'm going to guess that this has been proposed somewhere already, by minds quicker on the draw than mine.  But just in case...

I'm a huge fan of Monte Cook Games and the Cypher System, but I also see an opportunity to play a more free wheeling game with this hack.

I'd start with FAE's six Abilities, which would be your Might, Speed, Intellect, Careful, Flashy, and Sneaky.

As for Aspect, your Type, Descriptor, and Focus provide your High Concept.  And its easy to use Descriptors, specifically, for the rest of your Aspects, including using a Descriptor's inability for Trouble.

Stunts can come from Type and Focus easily.

Here's an example:

High Concepts: 
   Rugged Glaive Who Rides the Lightning
Prefers Animals to People
Other Aspects: 

Natural Athlete
Riding Instructor

Careful Mediocre (+0)
Flashy Fair (+2)
Sneaky Average (+1)
Might Fair (+2)
Speed Good (+3)
Intellect Average (+1)

Bolt Rider: When I Ride the Lighting, I can move up to two zones away.

Bolts of Power: When I Ride the Lighting, I gain a +2 bonus to attack a single opponent in a Flashy way.

Parry: When I wield my Mono-Filament Blade, I gain a +2 bonus to defend against a hand-to-thand attack with a Speedy technique.
