Spirit of the Century - Pulp Action

Fate Core System on Zoom

Fate Core System


About the adventure

Let's flash back to the 1920's, the era of epic heroes and high adventure. In stories stripped the pulp classics, told on the radios across the country, fight evil master minds and and save the world from danger. All with your whip, your fedora or your trusty camera. This game session is for first time players who are willing and excited to jump into a classic story telling game of high adventure. The Fate System used here allows quick dice rolls and ongoing action to unfold as defined by the players. Our focus will be the story we create together at the table, with each player adding in their own plot threads for the group to pursue. Can you save the world, together?

Additional Details

How to prepare

When coming to the session, please review the character sheet and be prepared to write down your skills at game time. A link to the official character sheet will be offered the day before our session. Please bring a set of 6 sided dice (or Fate Dice if you have them) as we will be rolling and reporting over the call. For this game a webcam will allow more interaction and story telling and is very strongly encouraged. You do not need to review rules prior to coming; rule explanation is a planned part of our session.

What I provide

As the Narrator I will be setting the stage and guiding you through the story. With my experience I hope to create NPC"s and story elements that captivate the mind and imagination, flashing all of us back to the Golden Age of Pulp Heroes.

Gameplay details

The spirit of the old pulp serials puts focus on adventure, action and story telling. Expect to find your heroes in clever death traps, ancient tombs and maybe even glimpse the supernatural.

How will character creation work

We will be creating characters as part of our session. The system uses character design to build a cohesive story and includes it in a typical Pick Up session like the one we will be enjoying together. Characters will be created using a shared background detailed in the rules so that everyone fits into the story and has their part to play.
