My question is about using Great Power or not...

    [ICONS ASSEMBLED] Using it as a generic, universal RPG

    Has anyone here used Icons Assembled for anything other than superhero roleplay? It seems to me to be an excellent system to use for cross-genre games where players want simplicity of rules. I'm specifically thinking of using it with GURPS' excellent Infinite Worlds setting. For those of you...

    [DC Heroes (MEGS) + Icons + Marvel SAGA]Awesome, insane, or just garbage?

    I found an article about benchmarking Icons using a sort-of AP system like MEGS on the Icons website. This article led me to the latest version of DC Adventures, which has a benchmark table similar to DC Heroes / MEGS as well. Combine this with Marvel SAGA: - Attributes and Powers on a scale...

    ICONS for Pulp Action?

    What's the consensus on using ICONS for 1930's, pulp adventure. I'm thinking of two-fisted private eyes, jungle lords, men of bronze, and gun toting masked avengers. My concern is that the system might not be granular enough, but I've not play tested it or anything. Thoughts on if it would...
