ICONS, a superhero RPG created by Steve (Mutants & Masterminds) Kenson is getting a new edition. Not only that, it is going to put out under Steve’s own gaming company Ad Infinitum Adventures. He will be partnering with Green Ronin who will publish and distribute it.
For those of you that haven’t heard of ICONS and are looking for a fun, easy to play, supers RPG, I strongly urge you to check it out. It has it’s roots in the classic Marvel Super Heroes Game by TSR as well as a dice mechanic influenced by the Fudge RPG. It’s an excellent blending of the two and one of my top go to supers RPG’s.
From Green Ronin’s site:
The Assembled Edition brings Icons up-to-date with all that has happened since its initial publication and gives Ad Infinitum a solid foundation to build upon. It includes updates from Great Power (while preserving that book’s value as an expanded powers book) along with a lot of “core” material like pyramid tests (in all their glorious variations), supplemental rules from Villainomicon and Team-Up, and updated art and graphic design in the style of Great Power, all in a beautiful new hardcover book!
ICONS: The Assembled Edition is due out this summer.
