Quick question, is this a significant rules upgrade from 2E? I have 2E and got the main rules update for Master Edition but does the ME play significantly differently than 2E? (have not read 3E update yet) Thanks.

Will this PDF be updated to include Altered State info? I'd be very interested to see that in there also!

nope. Alex was primary author there, so technically not core ICRPG property

The villains section in the Vigilante City chapter seems to be missing hearts, stun, and other important info.

I think they idea is that you come up with the stats, you make them as hard or as easy as you want.

Brandon G October 16, 2021 4:11 pm UTC

correct. there is plenty of diy text mentioning that SP and hearts should be determined by the GM, to get villains to fit story first and stats second

Link to Modiphius is not working. Don't know if I'd actually purchase anything from them anyway. Still waiting for my copy of Five Parsecs from Home that I ordered in May 21.

This was mentioned in another thread as well and he said he fixed them but they still appear to be broken. If you have a flgs you can buy from support them.

I bought mine from Miniature Market. They still haven't gotten their copies or mine. I reiterate my observation that I would not purchase anything from Modiphius at the moment...at least not in physical form.

Does the "ICRPG MAGIC" contain more on the magic stuff? Did some things get cut? Don't own that one so I can't compare.

the MAGIC system has been totally rebuilt, 3 schools, SP, and revised spell lists and descrips!

is there going to be a printer-friendly version that removes that background layer or open up the ability for us to turn it off for printing? Then we can print it using a lot less ink/toner and probably will make the print come out nicer.

if one were to pre-order hardcover from local flgs does it include a pdf if we send you a copy of the receipt?

Sorry mate, they look like links, they make the cursor change like links, but they still don't actually click at all.

Not a big fan of the new magic system, but having a whole package for the game is great

it is a simple cleanup of the MAGIC book, which was divided into way more schools and used HP instead of SP... base roll-to-cast is still the default magic system.

gonna say this right now: the pre order for the hard cover Master's book's not worth the 33 dollar shipping. until it's more reasonable, just buy the pdf.

You can get it from the US store if you're in the US: https://modiphius.us/products/index-card-rpg-master-edition

Shipping to Canada is higher than it is via DTRPG sadly, so no hard copy for me.

they are out of Ontario and ship anywhere in Canada and if you're close by you can save on shipping.

I checked my Index Card RPG 2E and found Master Edition Core Update. From a glance it looks like it updated the rules. Though having it all in 1 place like this PDF would be great.

How can a 400 page PDF not have bookmarks? Please please add bookmarks!

I second the need for bookmarks.
Customer avatar
chris D September 29, 2021 5:28 am UTC
PURCHASER
I'll 3rd this. Bookmarks are so very useful and even hyperlinked table of contents would be a close second. So far my biggest gripe about the pdf is these two things and if I had a third it would be mobile friendly as since all the pages are full columns for the most part instead of the typical 2 columns I have to read on my phone in landscape mode or constantly scrolling back and forth (just used to being able to zoom in on one half of the page and sliding over to the other when reading one-handed). I'm not saying it is necessarily a bad thing, it's just not as convenient to read on smaller 6.7" screens.

will work on a bookmark update :)

thank you it will make navigating a lot easier. Also in the adventure pack, bookmarks would be useful as well and two of the adventures have the same line under the title, (The Heckoon Carapace and Into the Sunset).

Any discounts for upgrading from the 2e book to this?
Customer avatar
Jacob R September 24, 2021 6:40 am UTC
If I read this correctly, if you already have 2E, they just updated it to have all the rules from this book. If you also own all the supplements, then you might have everything here. I could be wrong.

It updated the core rules, but it looks like the setting material and magic rules got left out. Not sure if that is a lure to get us to buy into the Master edition or if the PDF is going to be updated.
Customer avatar
Stacie W September 25, 2021 11:34 pm UTC
The Master Edition is being printed by Modiphius and getting a standard book retail release (with the quality that goes with that) so all he could do for the free rules is give us the actual rules that were updated to this edition. It was part of the deal made with Modiphius.

the free update was to all 2e core buyers, it includes the main rules, but TOC items in gray are only in MASTER EDITION full pdf

Link to the Modiphius site for the hardback https://www.modiphius.net/products/index-card-rpg-master-edition

It says: This is a pre-order expected to ship in December 2021. You will receive a FREE PDF upon completion of purchase!

Is there a way to link this free PDF to the DTRPG Store ?

Same here - I purchased the Master Edition through WaylandGames and wouldn't mind the PDF :)

Any chance a POD is on the horizon?

Not with Modiphius doing a full retail release of the book.

after the hardback sales with Modiphius get to a point, I am planning to offer a paperback POD here :)

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.
