Spirit of the Century is a pulp role-playing game published by Evil Hat Productions, and based on Evil Hat's FATE system.[1][2][3] It is billed as a 'pick-up' game that can be played quickly, with little preparation.[1]

The game is set in the pulp era of the 1920s.[1][2][3] Player characters are 'Centurions': 'potent individuals of action', born on the first day of the century, and endowed with extraordinary skills and abilities, much like Warren Ellis's conception of Century Babies in the Wildstorm comics universe.

The game marks the first appearance of Evil Hat's FATE 3rd Edition.[2] It was released to positive reviews, quickly reaching #1 on RPGnet's rankings.

Spirit of the Century won the 2006 Indie RPG Award for Independent Game of the Year[4] and also won the 2007 Silver ENnie Award for Best Rules.[5]

Co-author Fred Hicks claims that as of early 2009, Spirit of the Century has sold 3,313 copies in a mix of PDF and print.[6] [7]
