I'm wondering if all this book is actually "Open Game Content". The license is at the end but I can't find it stating what parts are "Open Game Content".

Any chance we could get a version of the PDF with lower compression? The current 1.5 version is very small (~6Mb), but the pictures are very blurry at this size...

What is the physical size of the hardcover and softcover? Does it match the ICONS Assembled book? thanks!

Just how different do the updates and revisions make the book? I literally just bought a print copy about a month ago, and don't want to buy another one already unless the changes are substantial. Don't mean to sound complainy, just poor timing on my part...

Thank you for the update. The problem with the update is just that the new PDF isn't indexed, so it is not easy to read. Hope you fix that soon.

What is the update? To make it compatible with ICONS: Assembled?
Customer avatar

Never mind - I see the answer on Steve's blog. (Yes, it has been updated for compatibility with ICONS: Assembled.)

Is there a way to tell which printed version has been updated? Thank you.

I don't have the original edition, but I did notice this note in the revised version, on page 10:
"Changes from Icons
In cases where the rules or descriptions in Great Power differ or conflict
with those in the Assembled Edition of Icons Superpowered Roleplaying,
assume the text in this book is the most correct and current. All efforts
have been made to minimize such conflicts while at the same time
providing the maximum utility from this book and its contents."
I'm guessing the original version doesn't have this note, with its reference to the Assembled edition and all. Hope that helps ...

What is the difference between the standard versus premium version?

Its just a reference to the quality and thickness of the page stock.

I asked Steve how this product connects to the later-released Icons Assembled Edition; his answer: "The power-set in Assembled Edition is essentially a condensed version of Great Power, so it is quite useful (IMHO) in terms of detail, more extras and limits, and examples of “re-skinned” powers for particular concepts."

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
