Has the ICRPG conversion been created yet? If so, is it contained in the Core Rules/Villain books? If not, where/when can we find them? Thanks!

It's actually still in the process of being completed (a little past the halfway point). For the Kickstarter backers it will be added to the early access account as soon as it's complete. For everyone else it's on our calendar for an early June release, but may be released early depending on how long the proofing process takes for the physical book.

I preordered the print books and Eric bloat was cool enough to hook me up with an early copy of the pdf. That being said, I’ve had a chance to read the rules more than a few times.

This game is awesome. If you are in to the deep dark gritty comic books from back in the day, this is most definitely for you. If you’re a fan of the old Palladium Heroes Unlimited, but find that just a bit too crunchy, this game is for you. I have an “ode to the 80’s” comic book campaign I’ve been wanting to run for a while. I was going to use Heroes Unlimited until I got Vigilante City. Now I’m going to use VC along with some material found in Dark Places & Demogorgons.

Vigilante City is an OSR game. The system is fast, fun and simple. Everyone can be up and playing a session with new characters in probably 30 minutes to an hour at most. It would serve well in both a campaign or a one shot. The art is top notch and really fits the feel of the genre. The rules read fast and are very easy...See more

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.
