Thanks for the news. But where does one obtain these books? Amazon doesn't list either of them. 
New Book -- ICONS: The Assembled Edition. There's a new / alternate version of ICONS out called ICONS Assembled, still by the incomparable Steve Kenson, that offers a substantial amount of alternative rules or rules adjustments -- but packaged as a single rulebook.

great game. great fun
There's even a short comic inside this sucker. Awesome stuff. Didn't play this game enough, and probably won't ever again. And I'm going to give this to a good friend soon, so this is kinda farewell to this game. Good luck, TMNT RPG. May your new owner use you well.

It should make you proud to know that mentioning your name or Zak's name on RPG.net is enough to make moderators give warnings. What are they afraid of? Well, we know honest exchange and debate is not allowed there. And yes, there are a ton of straight white male bullies competing to prove who is the most gay/tranny/"ethnic minority" friendly by abusing others. It's a very strange situation.
Today, something that's pretty well a Must-Read in terms of the recent and ongoing conflict this month around the fact that the Outrage Brigade has tried to slur, slander, and generally lie their way into trying to convince W...

Based on this and a couple of reviews, I have bought this game. Too awesome. Can't wait for it to arrive.

So is there a Sinbad game for sale? I love Harryhausen Sinbad and would love a good game for it (D&D does not work well).
OK, it's the new year, I haven't updated the Kickstarters for awhile now. So without further ado. Legends of Sinbad Kickstarter could use some more help. It's funded, 10 days remain to hit those stretch goals. $57 to get 20 monsters added to the bestiary, that triples what's in the book to begin ...

I don't understand why anyone cares about someone else's game. The only games I care about are the ones at my table. Play however you want. A lot of this feels like "OSR" self-proclaimed "grognards" trying to assert their seniority. All the old editions of D&D and a kajillion knockoffs are out there for us to play, let's play 'em. 
A couple days ago over at rpgbloggers I clicked through to the post Keep Randomness Out of Your Encounters out of sheer disbelief at the title of the post. I don't feel it's my place to run down 4E or its adherents, but I just don't follow the logic behind minimizing randomness in encounters.

I could say the same about you. Why do you post if you don't care?

LoSH is the gaping hole in my DC Archives collection much as X-Men is in my Marvel collection. Never appealed to me. What is it you like about LoSH?

Good question. I'll be tackling that in the future -- but part of it was the half-supers / half-elite specialist team in the far future feel. I also liked the setting, and I've not been quite as happy in some of the reboots because of the setting changes.

When your big idea is for gamers to recreate stories from shitty comics of the '90s and '00s, I assume you wanted to fail. Plus the game was just so badly written and poorly edited and did a lousy job at bringing any kind of comic book feel to the subject matter.
Margaret Weis Productions announced today that they are not continuing the Marvel Heroic RPG, apparently after sales of the Civil War line proved to be unsatisfactory. I, for one, am very sad to hear that. Was I a hardcore Ma...

Sounds about the usual. Outrage is easier than actually working on something.
I'm really too crazy-busy to write this; I've just gotten a new consulting gig (with a company that will be revealed in due time), and have also been busy exchanging some emails with WoTC (the subject of which may be discusse...

That Shadow Lass has some costume. Was she at the beach when they picked her up? Very '70s sexploitation sci fi.
This was my jumping on point for collecting the Legion of Super-Heroes (LSH). I'd encountered them before, in something known in the Philippines as National Bookstore reprints -- an interesting Philippine artifact that I'll tackle in another post. I suppose it was time -- I was reading the ...

Had this when I was a lad. No idea where it went. Never got to use it.
I'm way behind on listening to podcasts.  The combination of fantasy baseball preparation and working my way through YSDC's Shadows by Gaslight audio recordings, has me way behind on gaming podcasts - so it was just the other...
