Be advised that this game needs alot of house rules. Think of it as a skeleton that needs you to add the muscle and flesh. Played it with my group several times using the rules as written and quietly set it aside.

Is there a Printer Friendly version available? The ICRPG_CORE_2E_Digital_1.3.pdf uses a lot of black, and will kill my toner/ink. Even a version without the black border on ever page would help. The free Quickstart PDF doesn't have the black border on every page, which is basically what I want. Thanks

I purchased the soft cover version + pdf and just received my book today. The cover art if off center and the border on the front and back covers gets clipped on the outside edge. Is there somewhere to address this printing error ?

The ICRPG community on Google+ and Facebook are extremely supportive. The book's author even appears there and helps out sometimes.

Question - Characters succeed on a roll if equal or better?

Do monsters also succeed on equal or better?

Cheers

Your decision to update 2E so soon after 1E -- without sending us to purchase a new product just won you a loyal customer. I'm buying and supporting Runehammer products. Love the videos too.

I was bummed when I purchased INDEX CARD RPG Core in March 2018, and only to find out afterwards that 2E was in the works. I'm glad the author has provided 2E as an update for people who purchased the first edition. Kudos!

Excited to see this! Print question: Have they updated DriveThruRPG so you (the author) can modify the copy in the the print on demand books when they're sold? I remember that this was a problem in the past with the print book being way behind the PDF version. I like that ICRPG is a living evolving system, but I'd like my print copy to align pretty closely to the PDF.

adjust print still causes a big gap. 2E is extremely stable though, and will not change. Hardcopies are up to date with digital and will stay that way :D

Any further word on the POD version? I went to purchase print + pdf from my wishlist only to discover the print was no longer available. Looks like a neat core book, but I'm holding off for print versions of the Core book and Worlds.

I think that's because it's about to be replaced with the 2E core book which will be in print within the next couple of days. I'm waiting as well.

Does that mean Worlds is going to be updated as well? This game seems a bit young to be needing a second edition already. I'm losing interest rapidly.

Nope, he's said WORLDS will stay as is. I think he's said something about new Volumes of more "WORLDS" books.

2E is adding 100 pages of content for the same price though, which is pretty cool imo. (I think its 280 in all) He refined stuff and added more adventures, monsters, etc.

I can understand that feeling though. Its the danger of being a 1-man show - you can't put out content fast enough to keep the momentum going sometimes.

If you already have the 1E PDF you'll get an updated PDF for 2E for FREE though. 1E was out for a year and he learned alot since first publishing this. I think that 2E will be stable going forward just going off of his word.

" many rewrites for clarity, all tables now included in hard copy, new adventures and monsters added, class rules tweaked for better performance, learning mechanic removed, zillions of tiny details fixed or improved. 2e core is 218 pages! almost 100 pages bigger than 1e"

Hank announced that the v2 upgrade will be free to anyone who already has the PDF. Not sure if links work here, but if you check the pinned post in the Index Card RPG community on G+ it should confirm! https://plus.google.com/u/1/communities/113794869422304907451

A great ruleset that has inspired me to bring my kids into the role playing hobby. One or two turns and everyone gets the rules and we can get on with the story!

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.
