Spirit of the Century RPG rules download on PWYW for Free RPG Day

Spirit of the Century - A Pulp Pickup RPG
(Evil Hat Productions 2003, 2006)

“a complete, stand-alone pulp role-playing game based on the award-winning Fate system”

I’m really enjoying skimming through this, with fond memories of Justice Inc. (Hero Games 1984) since I’ve never read any Doc Savage but am thrilled by the breadth of pulp settings. Also, I wanted to expand my collection of FATE games, since I have the special +/./- dice now. :D

The different formats are a nice touch, ebook-readers and kindle owners will approve.

Spirit of the Century is currently available as a “Pay What You Want” download. DriveThruRPG have cunningly shoe-horned Pay-What-You-Want into the celebration of Free RPG Day, which, even as an affiliate I find, slightly dubious. ;) But, hey, there’s some good stuff in there along with the usual quickstarts, samplers and unfinished tester rules.

Happy Free (and PWYW) RPG Day! :D

Visit to friendly local gaming store: Weekend Warlords (UK)

I briefly visited the bricks n mortar site of Weekend Warlords today.  A well stocked store with many tabletop ranges (including, surprisingly, some RPGs) and a large tabletop game play area. Friendly staff.  Not bad for the town of Loughborough in the East Midlands.  ;)

My actual purchases were pathetically small, this was an investigation sortie and we live in frugal times. See photo.


I have yet to play the wonderfully simple Cthulhu Dice, but I am planning to beat a man to death with the large d20 (blue d10 added for size comparison) or just break his furniture by slam-dunk rolling the die in a game.
