Has anyone played the Fallout PnP RPG? (also available here.) I think the rulebook looks very exciting, but what experiences have you made? Are the rules sane? Are there pitfalls or shortcomings which are only apparent once you started playing? Also, on a sidenote, how do you think about playing dogs or robots? Not that I would try it when playing for the first time, though, I'm just curious … and how many hours/evenings/… have you usually spent on one adventure?

I think the original Fallout PnP rules are good and solid. Also very good for new players who just played the CRPGs. It's a percentile system so its bonus/penalty modifiers is easy to apply.
For my money it's always better to 'port' house rules to an established system, eg d20 Modern or GURPS. This way you get the 'native flavor' of the setting with the larger universe of expansions and source material.
