Cosmic Action for the ICONS RPG!

  • A mad god searches for a dark ritual that will give him the means to destroy the universe. 
  • A corrupt space-police organization enslaves civilized worlds to enrich itself. 
  • An empire of sentient machines is exterminating any biological life in its path. 
  • Pirates prey upon the space-ways with impunity.


Meanwhile, the forces of order and good are retreating, scattered and embattled.

The universe needs heroes!

The Great Game blasts you into the far reaches of the cosmos with characters, organizations, starship stats and advice for running a space-based supers campaign.

Written by a stellar cast of RPG talent (including Steve Perrin and Jason Tondro (aka Doctor Comics)) with many a fond tip of the Kirby Crackling Hat to the cosmic supers of yore, The Great Game is a Cosmic Supers setting for the ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying Game that puts the PCs in the center of the action. It is based in the Stark City Campaign setting and is fully compatible with ICONS Great Power.

You can hear Jason Tondro talking about The Great Game and giving his 'DVD commentary' for the book on the BAMF Podcast.

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.
