From Aliens to Zombies, It’s Icons – From A to Z!

Icons A to Z is a supplement for the fun and fast-playing Icons Superpowered Roleplaying, offering twenty-six chapters on a variety of subjects from Aliens and the Cosmic to X-Factors and Zombies, and everything in between. In its pages you will find:

  • Options! Optional, variant, and add-on rules include adding cosmic levels to the game, knacks, narrative abilities, resources, interaction abilities, and more, allowing you to customize your own game to suit your style. 
  • Inspiration! Create an alien species, a lost world, an unexpected event, or a supporting character with just a few die rolls by consulting the tables in this book for inspiration.
  • Genres! From cosmic outer-space adventure to the golden age comics of World War II, from legendary lost worlds to teen heroes balancing homework with fighting crime, you’ll find advice on creating heroes and running games set in different genres. 
  • Challenges! Heroes face challenges other than just villains, and you can challenge yours with disasters, daring rescues, epic battles, demons, monsters, and more.  

Icons A to Z also provides numerous examples of how to use qualities, from defining characters, to situations, environments, even your whole setting, along with ways to create and use them in play.

It would be really nice if the PDF version of the books from Ad Infinitum Adventures came with the back cover. I live in Brazil and both the exchange rate and the shipping costs are kind of prohibitive, so I usually buy PDFs from DriveThru RPG and get them printed in a local print shop. Nothing fancy, just a black and white hardcopy, but a book without a back cover is kind of weird.

I'll try and take that into account going forward, Ciro.

Are there any discounts available for who did the A-Z subscription and would like to add on the hardcover edition?

I really wish this PDF was bookmarked. It would make using it on a tablet at the gaming table MUCH easier.

Note that the current (v1.1) version of the PDF is bookmarked.

There had been discussion of releasing the unified version of the A to Z series for those who bought it as a subscription a year ago. I cant find the subscription anymore. Is that still an option?

If you have the entire collection you *have* access to the compiled single file it is below "z is for zombies" as "Icons A to Z"....happy heroing.

Franklin is correct: The compiled A to Z PDF was added to the subscription library (which should still be available to those who purchased it last year, even though it's no longer on-sale).

Steve, I was a subscriber and I've tried downloading the compiled A to Z from my library multiple times and the PDF file seems to be corrupt. Attempting to open it only results in a error for me.

Gordon, email me directly at and I'll see if I can provide you with a replacement PDF.

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.
