    [Spirit of the Century] America sourcebook?

    Recently been poring over Strange Tales of the Century, which is a great globe-hopping character sourcebook for Spirit of the Century -- one of my favorite RPG campaign settings (I love the idea of Centurions/Century Babies and the Century Club). But will there be a sourcebook to cover America...

    Welcome to the out-of-character thread for Tailspins & Tiki Gods! (Campaign name courtesy of Sabermane). We will be using Spirit of the Century rules with the Fate Core updates found in the Strange Tales of the Century supplement. There are a couple of sites online, I believe that have the...

    [Interest] Tailspins & Tiki Gods - SotC/Fate Core in the South Seas!

    Spirit of the Century in the South Seas! This is the Interest/Recruitment thread for a pulp adventure campaign in the South Pacific in the 1930s. I'll be using the SotC rules along with the Fate Core updates that were published in the appendix of the supplement, Strange Tales of the Century...

    Fate Core vs SotC question (don't laugh)

    I admit right now that I have not been following all the Fate systems. I have SotC and I love the look of it, I just never understood it when I first read it, so I want to give it an honest try. I was on Evil Hat's twitter feed and I saw a pic with all their games and where they fall in...

    Spirit of the Century

    I'm going through my rpg collection and I'm currently sorting my pulp games. I flipped through Spirit of the Century. This is a game I really wanted to love, but just couldn't get my head around the system. I am thinking of taking a second (third?) shot at it. Does this game still get some...

    OOC [SotC] The Century that Was

    And, here's the OOC. Please keep up with the Wiki... though I admit I have to try and work out some organizational kinks, I mostly want a place to compile hints, foreshadowing and character stats for the different eras so I can keep track of it all, and so can you. Posting (or reposting)...

    IC [SotC] The Century that Was

    May 9th, 2003. Outskirts of Paris, France. Son of a bitch, there it is. The old inn squats on the top of the hill like a fat middle-aged man, who has passed the farm work largely off to his young sons. It's painted white, but it looks like the paint began to peel a decade or two ago. The front...

    [Recruitment] Spirit of the Century (well, a Century)

    So, I'm hankering to run SotC again, but my brain is open to doing some different things with it, depending on what people are interested in. There are two main directions in which I am thinking to move, being: Dawn of an Age This is rather like the traditional SotC set up, around the twenties...

    Dresden Files in the '20's, with a splash of SotC.

    So I was thinking about running a DF game set in the '20s, but rather go with the obvious Noir feel, I decided to go Pulp. Now, this of course lead me to checking out Spirit of the Century. My first idea is to treat the Centurions as a new Template in DF, but I'm not sure if that'll work or...

    [spirit of the century] players have the mcguffin, where's the drama?

    Ok so the players picked up a map to a sphinx's tomb, which some proto-nazis want their hands on. So what now? How is protecting an item fun? I know the proto-nazis will probably send guys after them, but I don't know how to turn them into interesting threats. I don't want to shower them with...

    Spirit of the Century house rules

    So, the game has been out for a good long while, and there's all these other FATE variants floating around out there with their own takes on things. And now I'm running SotC again, after a few years off from the game. Does anyone have any good suggestions for house rules? I'll be implementing...

    Spirit of the Century: The Armies of Mars!

    So last night my players made characters for our Mars FATE game. A little explanation. <B>Leverage</b> ended not long ago (I still owe you a post on that, actually), as did (for now) <B>Hunter</b>. Everyone was fine with me continuing to be the GM each week (the other option was Michelle, but...

    Spirit of the Century Awesomeness

    I recently picked up SotC and am really digging it. I am curious what you have done with it. What pulpy madness have you entangled your players with?

    [SotC] Need some help for a character...

    Posted this at the FATE group, but hope rpg.net can give me some ideas... I've been the GM for a SotC campaign set in New York and now we're gonna change GM's for an adventure or two. The other players drew Arkham Horror characters as inspiration for their heroes*which worked well enough. * My...

    [Spirit of the Century] What went wrong?

    So... I've been really excited about SotC since I bought it, but last week I ran a session of it and the game was an absolute failure. The players got bored and frustrated and eventually told me in no uncertain terms that they didn't want to play anymore. Can anyone explain to me what went wrong...

    [SotC] Minion creation question and stress damage question

    Ok got my first game of SotC this evening and I'm setting up Doctor Metropolis' Clockwork Chimpanzee's. I made his first set of minions just Average. I figured it'd be about a dozen with groups of 3 or 4, depending on how many players show up tonight. Now where I stumped myself, and maybe I...

    [FATE] Fate that scene!

    When I watched that scene recently, I couldn't help but wonder how it could be done with the FATE mechanics. Any idea? ;) (Moreover, I think it could inspire some fate specialists to play that little game: Translating some movie scenes of their choice in Fate terms. ;))

    [Fate] First thoughts on my FATE Fantasy Steampunk Setting

    Concepts: Clockworks, Trains, Zeppelins, guns, weird / mad science, Biotechnology ala Dark Sun & Geneforge pc rpg (living tools & living constructs) Magic in general has several limitations. Morality is probably gray. There's no such thing as pure good or pure evil. (some) Rules: Mainly a...

    New GM RPG Recommendation

    I made a post on here a while back about some ideas for getting into some games with a new group, but everything ended up falling through and gaming fell to the wayside. However, I've got a new group that I've been gaming with, and am looking for some advice as to what would be best to run with...
