What would it take to make this POD?

Honestly, probably re-laying the whole book out, since it wasn't designed for print, but it's something we can look at, potentially as a compilation of some sort. Thanks for the suggestion!

Content is great, but the format not so much. Alternating between landscape and portrait orientation?! It's a real pain to read on a tablet. I probably won't buy another of these if it follows the same format.

I have a version that's edited for all portrait orientation I'm working on - I think future editions will be in portrait 100%.
Thanks for grabbing it!

Since there is no print edition of the Hero Pack, it is only available from DriveThruRPG and RPGNow.

Are these characters from other publications brought together for this book or are all of these new addtitions to the ICONS line?

Hey Andy -
Steve's right - the characters are all new.
Each Hero Pack was designed around the concept of 'Have the Line Artist Draw Your Character!' - which I'd accept fifty or so heroes from the fans of ICONS, and then create a book of heroes for GM's to use in their own games, for heroes or villains.
I've got a couple projects currently, but I may be announcing another Hero Pack soon -- follow Steve or myself on Twitter @DipswitchDan -- stay tuned. :)

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.
