The Master Edition is missing all the character creation information for the Weird West setting??

Check the Ghost Mountain section (under Worlds). I think what you're looking for starts on page 232.

Looking through my ICRPG: Vigilante City, it says I can also use a ICRPG: Magic for some of the class options. Does the new Magic system listed in this book replace it? If it's better than the MAGIC book, may as well use this one, yeah?

I've already purchased ICRPG 2E and some associated materials.
Is there an upgrade option for those of us who have already purchased the previous version or do I need to pay full price again?

I'm just getting into ICRPG and am interested in the Index Card RPG MAGIC book as well. Anyone know if it will be available again or where I can get a copy? Yes, I realize the master edition has a good section, but I'd like to have both (just like I have a copy of core and master - there's good stuff in both).

Where is The Magic sourcebook? Why would Runehammer take it down if he's still selling the Second Edition book?

Unless I am confusing it somehow, that is now a section of the 1.7 pdf of the master edition.

Etsy is a pretty great place to find fancy dice. I'm quite sure you will find something similar there.

Is there a way to play this online? Can you buy it on roll20? I searched for "index card RPG" on roll20 and it did not come up

Thanks.

Not because of this, but I have decided to give Foundry a shot. If I get used to it, I will eventually try to run IC RPG over there.

I just get really tired of fighting roll20 all the time and I always heard good things about Foundry. It looks pretty good so far but I kind of just barely opened it.

But they had IC RPG over there and I'll buy the PDF here.

Thank you though.

Worlds, Core, Magic have combined 458 pages.
Slightly more than master edition.

Funny as master edition includes 2 world settings not found in world.
Also has extra adventures?

Something got trimmed - what was it?

Thanks!

A bit late for an answer. The adventures got cut out of the physical edition, but are separate PDF with ~150 pages (also included) with the familiar adventure from the other books. Also some of the adventures specific rules (example Cthulhu-like sanity rolls from Beneath the Door) now also exist as a section in the main book. [edited for clarity]

This is sold as Version 1.7, yet the title page reads 1.6.

So I'm confused. Does this come with cards? Or where do cards come in? I've seen videos of people playing with cards so no idea.

You can print them out if you have the PDF or buy them printed, but you're encouraged to just draw on index cards yourself. The cards usually represent rooms or monsters. I'm not 100% sure if they're included in this download, I bought the physical cards. Take a look at INDEX CARD RPG Vol. 1-4.

It's a bit pointless to include pdfs of the character sheets that can't even be used - only printed. There are hundreds of ICRP sheets out there, I know. But I do expect the character sheets that come with my purchase to be form fillable.

No idea what you mean; there are plenty of pdf programs that allow you to add your own writing/markings. That's not a limitation of the pdf, but whatever pdf reader you're using.

Lesson Learned. Don't purchase more than one product at a time. They will tell you they cannot print your purchased book as agreed. I bought the pdf plus soft cover edition. I also added the cards. They printed the cards, but refused to print "PDF
Softcover color cover, B&W interior (6.14" x 9.21")" as ordered. Which is the whole reason I ordered the book. I don't want the pdf, I wanted the book format as ordered. In fact, I didn't really want the cards, just thought it might of been nice.

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.
