ICONS: Sins of the Past Revisited


Ad Infinitum Adventures presents an exciting adventure for Icons Superpowered Roleplaying!

They were the first to take up the mantle, the original article. When the world needed heroes, the Golden Agents rose to the challenge. But time and tide wait for no one, and the years are finally catching up to the living legends on the eve of the dedication of a new museum in their honor. Is it as simple as that, or is something sinister afoot? Can your heroes save the day when their Golden Age predecessors are haunted by ... the Sins of the Past?

Sins of the Past is a revision of the top-selling original adventure, released for Icons in 2010, updated for the Assembled Edition of the game, it features all-new art, additional material by the author, and some changes and updates to the original story, based on feedback from years of sharp-eyed playtesters!

As a bonus, purchasers of the "Revisited" edition get a copy of the original Sins of the Past at no extra cost!

I have Sins of the Past in my Library; how do I get the Revisited edition for free? Adding it to my basket just listed it at the full price.

The Revisited edition of Sins is a pretty significant rewrite, with added text along with all-new art and layout. It's more than a minor update of the original adventure, so it is listed as a separate product.

Ah, I misread it ("As a bonus, purchasers of the "Revisited" edition get a copy of the original Sins of the Past at no extra cost!") as purchases of the original got the new one. My bad. Thanks for the quick reply.

how long of an adventure is this? Is it meant to be run in 1 session, 2, an entire campaign?

Sins is six chapters, with four main conflicts and an investigation, so playable in 1-2 game sessions, depending on the players' activities.

Thanks for the info- are there any published full length campaigns?

Rise of the Phalanx is a series of adventures all in one book for a campaign-length game taking heroes from newcomers to the inheritors of an important heroic legacy. That said, Icons adventures are intended to be fairly episodic, so you can string together a whole series of them, if you want.

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.
