[ICONS]Improbable Tales: Imbalance of Terror

Watermarked PDF

The brutal vigilante Black Terror is being hunted by mercenary assassins.

The resulting street battles are causing chaos in the PCs' city.

The Black Terror's former sidekick approaches the heroes and asks for their help defending Black Terror and also bringing the fallen hero in to answer for his crimes. 

Can the heroes curb the wave of violence choking their city? 

Written by RPG luminary Chuck Rice and illustrated by a bevy of talented artists, Imbalance of Terror will rock your ICONS games. 

This book features characters from The Super Villain Handbook but is a complete and stand-alone product by itself. 

This product requires ICONS Assembled Edition

Hey! Look at that cover! David Bednarski is a heck of an artist, eh?

"This book features characters from The Super Villain Handbook but is a complete and stand-alone product by itself.

So is it a complete stand-alone or does it require ICONS Assembled?

It is a complete and stand-alone product by itself. All characters referenced in this book that are from The Super Villain Handbook have been presented in this pdf as well. So, you don't need to buy the SVH at all to use this. Everything you need is in this.

sorry - I was in a hurry and misread your question. Yep - ICONS: Assembled Edition is required. This is an adventure published for that rules system - so you'll need access to ICONS:AE to play. Sorry for the confusion.

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.
