Evil Hat has done an amazing job with the FATE system. My group and I have greatly enjoyed the Spirit of the Century It is a great blend of science, magic, and technology that allows for fantastic adventures. By no means is this a one shot deal either, it has many threads that can lead adventurers in many different directions, definately a must have!!

Evil hat makes some quality product. Best part of any Evil Hat book is that it's an easy read - no walls of stat blocks or overly confusing jargon, and Spirit of the Century is no exception. On top of that, DriveThru is pretty much the best way to acquire digital RPG products.

This has to be Pulp gaming at it's finest. The mystery and intrigue and gung-ho fights that this oft glossed over genre, shines through in this unique approach to the FATE 3 system. The authors put a lot of thought (and most likely reading) into getting just the proper "pulp" feel. I'll have no problem with giant robots, mad scientists and "Doc Savage" type mysteries again!

Awesome use of the ruleset!

I am quite enamored of the setting and the assumptions about the larger than life aspects of the characters.

I love a big freewheeling game and this is easily one of the best for that style of pley.

The Spirit of the Century rules have changed the way I play games. Aspects are the coolest invention since polyhedral dice, letting you create background stories for your character that have a mechanical effect in the game. The basic mechanics are easy to grasp and there is lots of other stuff (like the stunts) that add depth to your characters. While the rules claim to be "pick up and play" you do need to have a good understanding of them before that is possible, but once you have a few games under your belt this is a fast, outrageously fun game. It hits the tropes of "pulp" adventure smack between the eyes and is incredibly comprehensive. Check them out. Play them.

SotC is a great pulp adventure game that utilizes the simple fudge dice mechanics. It is right up there with Adventure! by whit wolf as far as presentation and writing is concerned. Pulp adventure fans buy this book!

Incredibly well thought system, incredibly well designed game. I am an avid rpg collector and once player. Ive been collecting rpgs for about 14 years now. When youve readen enough of them, similarities between them start to crop up, and its hard to come with a moment of "this is really new and cool" feeling. Only 2 of DTRP books (and ive bought some really nice ones here) have made me feel that. One is Mythic Game Master Emulator and the other is this game. Youre not going to get a much better quality/price ratio than buying this work of art for 15 lousy dollars.

So why buy Spirit of the Century here instead of getting the free SRD, waiting for FATE 3.0 or even buying the real book? Easy answerd! This one has tons of examples and very nice artwork, the SRD has not. Waiting? No option. Get it now! Buy the real book, too, if you can :) As always the real bonus feature is searching with the reader.

Spirit of the Century is the best RPG I have ever read!
Rules that for once are actualy interesting and, shock, fun to read. A hefty tome, weighing in at over 400 pages, SotC is a delight from cover to cover. Excellent mechanics, the best character generation system EVER, brilliant examples of play and a "how to GM" section that is worth reading even for experienced GM's.
A couple of minor niggles, the default setting is a bit uninteresting and I thought the artwork, although evocative of the pulp genre, is a bit poor. However when you weigh this up against the elegance of the system it's a pretty minor couple of points.

The real question here is not whether SotC is a good book. It's accolades speak to that. It's why should you spend your money on the pdf. purchase price instead of downloading the srd for free. Good question. Here's my answer, for what it's worth. Excellent art, a great layout, slews of examples of play and a lot of sage GM advice and setting specific info. So, cut Evil Hat a break and indulge yourself, you know you want to! But seriously, if you haven't tried FATE 3.0, and are looking for a cinematic system you can run with 10 minutes after clicking the pay button, give it a shot--provided that the GM and players are on cooperative terms; this is not an adversarial system. The guy behind the screen isn't trying to do everyone else in; he, or she for that matter, is the director of an interactive story.
