I bought the softcover and PDF and was a little concerned that the POD was going to not be the best quality.
It is described as the "deep discount paperback edition", but honestly for $16.50 I cannot complain.
Is it thick paper? No. Can you see the backside through the facing page? Yes. Does it affect the readability? Not at all.
It's a good deal for a print copy of a great game.

So what’s the difference between this version (Master) and ICRPG 2E (Core?). I’m kinda confused honestly.

Hardback book is unavailable at Modiphius. Too bad you do not have a print on demand option here.

Bought the physical copy + PDF, arrived quickly and in great condition - don't let the "discount" part give you the wrong idea, it's a quality printing and binding. (There are, however, several typos in the printing also present in the PDF, and I haven't really found a good place to report those typos, so I'm not sure those're getting fixed.)

More importantly - and I only really discovered this after the fact - I think it's important to say that this book is hardly really *complete*. While it includes parts of previously released ICRPG material (Core, Worlds, Magic...) all of it is streamlined, sometimes *heavily* streamlined to the point where important information is left out. Central mechanics such as Chests aren't really explained anywhere in the book, only referred to - similarly, character templates frequently make reference to items or item listings which are also not present in the book. Master Edition is essentially only half-complete without also buying Second Edition, unless you...See more

Vigilante City world's character creation mentions to pick a STARTING LOOT from Vigilante City (or another world), but there are none such to be found from VC (at least, I can't). Is it missing ?

I also want to purchase this B&W printed version, as I have the Hard Cover, I wanted the Premium Collector's Edition as well.

But about this Black & WHite version, some samples of the pages & is it premium paper, or does it feel like rough typical paper? ... because the premium Color version sells out fast, the Collector's Edtion is MIA.

This Master Edition might also benifit a soft cover, premium color version. Also Need this for the PDF version & the printable parts not included in the Hard Cover I have... so I kind of want to know what I am getting if I buy the B&W print version here with the PDF.

I'm thinking about upgrading to this version and getting it printed at my local shop. But my local shop doesn't use imperial paper sizes, does anyone know the page size?

This collection is already a treasure hoard for face-to-face sessions, thank you!
Is there a similar supplementary package for VTT somewhere?
(I found some professional maps, tokens, etc. in Xeno Dead Zone that raised some hopes for this.) :)

I'm a little confused. I've heard reference to ICRPG 3e and the ICRPG Master Edition.
Are they the same thing?

This is 3e I belive, using additional stuff that was developed throughout the lifetime of 2e. It also includes all the stuff from ICRPG 2e Worlds and Magic in a single book.

Is there any way to get a POD version of the game here AND the cards? Right now it looks like I have to get a hard copy through Modiphius and the cards separately, here. Is that correct?

Just received the Master Edition hard back book. Congratulations! This is a beautiful tome!
I use ICRPG to run a series of weekly 1 hour 1 shots for my QA team.

Does the hardcover come with a pdf copy? Looking at picking it up from my FLGS but can’t get an answer on this.

I bought my hardcover directly from the Modiphius website and it was only the hardcover. I'd already bought the PDF here on DriveThru.

Love this master edition!
Unfortunately I cannot find the print and play figures of the battle suits of the Fall of Arnor adventure. Any chance that thry will be added at some point?

Curious about something because I am about to order the hardcover book but I also want the art cards. Does the Master Ed. include the art cards from the Vol. 1, 2, 3, and 4 products?

Thanks!

Never mind. I think I’ve discovered the answer on page 74 of the 2e quick start guide. For those that come after, I’m fairly certain those are separate products.

I posed this question to Hank on live stream today. He said, no, but that there was a *ton* of art added to the recent PDFs (which I can confirm after ordering the physical book a bit ago), the best art is in the Essentials Deck, and he’s lowered the prices on all the “Volume” products recently.

Format
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.
