Over on Independent Insurgency, Rob Donoghue and Fred Hicks talk about Spirit of the Century.
I found it interesting that one of their topics was flaws of SotC. There are two flaws key they single out:
Spirit of the Century drags in convention games during character creation, due to vast stunt lists.
Combats can drag due to the stress track.
So, anyone play Awesome Adventures? I had those issues too, and designed a game around solving them.
