Spirit of the Century, or SotC among some groups, is a Fate-based RPG in the pulp genre. Every player was born on January 1, 1901, the first day of the 20th century. Every player is also very gifted along the lines of Doc Savage or Buckaroo Banzai. They’re not superheroes except along the lines of Batman, but they’re very good at what they do.
The game is also extremely good for pick-up games with as every character’s background is linked in some way with every other character’s background.
Well, the good folks at Evil Hat have made a board game based on SotC where the players run around the world in a competition to get their passports stamped, but in the spirit of Around The World In 80 Days and The Great Race and such nothing is going to be so simple as landing in Bangkok and getting your passport stamped.
It looks pretty cool and I think it’s worth supporting.
