The Great War is over, and the world is a darker place, rippling under the surface with unseen dangers – dangers few are even aware of. In the skies over Europe, Doctor Methuselah’s fleet of time-zepplins assemble to rip open a path to a future that never should be. The deadly Gorilla Khan stalks darkest Africa from his throne in conquered Atlantis, pledging the destruction of the human race. All over the globe, dark shadows grasp towards the hearts of the brave, their every intent to silence the hope of a new century struggling to survive.
One organization stands in their way.
The Century Club
The Bride of the Winds is a pulp adventure game based on the setting of Evil Hat’s Spirit of the Century.

Notes on Character Creation:
It is not necessary to have this in the bio, but please have an idea of the following:
- What your character did during the Great War
- Who your character’s patron was
- How they were admitted into the Club
A Note on Strengths, Weaknesses, Subplots, and Assets
One of the things that sadly can’t quite be replicated in the Storium system is SotC’s ‘aspects’. In the standard game characters have six aspects, both good and bad, that they use. Aspects are things that could fall under strengths, weaknesses, subplots, goals and assets.
I have used the Occult Pulp Horror frame to build this game, but please feel free to make up your own cards. In fact, I will strongly encourage this. You can use the existing card texts if you like, but I would request you create your card title with a bit more ‘flavor’.
For example, your Strength card could simply be Strong. But it’s more flavorful if it’s Strong as an Ox or Man of Iron. If you’re making a Weakness called Dark Past, that’s great, but it’s more flavorful if you consider Former Cultist or Eye of Anubis. The same thing goes for your Subplot cards - jazz it up, make it your own.
In your notes to the narrator, please let me know if you’d like your character to have any specialized tools, machinery, gadgets, etc. If your character is a master thief with an incredible bag of lock picking tools, let me know, and you’ll have an asset once the game begins.
One of the most fun parts of creating characters in the SotC world is that, before the adventure begins, there is a framework to determine preexisting relationships. That will be explained further once the cast is set, but to get the ball rolling on it, please submit in your bio the name of a novel starring your character and a short blurb detailing the plot. The blurb should be no more than 2 - 3 sentences maximum. Applications that do not include this will be sent back.
