Hope Prep #3 Field Trip (ICONS)


As part of the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale this title has been marked down by up to 33%. For more values visit the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale page.

The freshman class goes on a field trip to explore the research facilities of Lieder Industries. While on the trip, the PCs are accidentally sent through a dimensional portal to the Twisted Earth that invaded during Hope Preparatory School 1–The Substitute. Worse yet, they soon discover that their parallel versions are back on their Earth — potentially creating a social nightmare for them.

Field Trip is a scenario in the HPS Freshman Year story arc. It may be played as a standalone, or it may be used with first-year characters who are already established in the Hope Preparatory School setting. A map of Lieder Industries and a range of NPCs provide everything a gamemaster needs to run the scenario and experience a day in the life of a metahuman student.

This scenario also provides background and game information on Lieder Industries. This company is responsible for many of the amazing advances that propel metahuman life in the world of Hope Preparatory School-and a few of the complications as well. Their "Plumbers" are highly trained in repairing leaks in the fabric of reality, and in dealing with the consequences of those leaks.

The Hope Prep School Freshman Handbook provides additional details about the HPS setting used in this scenario.

This PDF uses layers for ease of printing and is sized for compatibility with popular electronic reading devices.

Requires ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying from Ad Infinitum Adventures for use.

Are there any plans to release this for Mutants and Masterminds as well as for Icons?

Originally there were plans, but it's been long enough that I'm not likely to get back to it at this point.

I have a question of the author or publisher of this line. Are you going to finish the student clique character packs? You have only published three of the seven cliques. Its been a year since your last publication. Are you going to finish the series?

I love all things ICONS, and I consider your line to be one of my favorites. You pack a lot into every issue and I adore the system so for me your writings are choice. I promise to buy one of everything you publish. As long as its ICONS Hope Prep, of course.

Had to ask. Though ICONS has updated itself, it is so close to its original that no modifications would need to be made. One of the biggest changes I can think of is powers never cost x2 anymore and cammoflage isnt its own power but a limited version of invisibility. Anyone with familiarity would be able to smooth over such in moments. I just hate having an incomplete line, especially of such a promising line. Maybe a kickstarter could get you the cash you need to publish...See more

Hi, andrew - Thanks for the kind words. Melior Via is basically a one person shop, though I do also work with a lot of freelancers. For the last year, my personal design work has been very focused on the Accursed line, due to its level of success. I'd very much like to do more work with Hope Prep, but I need to find a way to give it the time and resources necessary. At the moment, those have been in short supply.

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.
