Coming Soon: Urban Jungle

It’s a Jungle Out There!

Free samples of garden greenery from the annual flower show—what could be wrong with that? Plenty, if the gift-giver is none other than the criminal Creeper, master of plant-life, with a new scheme to take over the city! Even worse, when the Creeper doesn’t know what’s really going on behind the scenes. It’s survival of the fittest in … The Urban Jungle!

A standalone adventure for Icons, written and illustrated by Dan Houser, coming soon from Ad Infinitum Adventures!

C is for Cosmic, the third installment in the Icons A to Z series, is now available for sale on DriveThruRPG and RPGNow and available to subscribers for download.

“C is for Cosmic” covers the cosmic elements of the comic book genre both in terms of cosmic scaling for high-powered characters and beings as well as stories primarily using the vastness of outer space as their setting. Combine it with “A is for Aliens” for interstellar species and “B is for Battles” for cosmic conflicts on other worlds or in the depths of space! It also pairs well with the cosmic setting of The Great Game from Fainting Goat Games.

The Icons Wiki Returns!

iconswiki

Longtime fans of Icons are familiar with the Icons: Truth, Justice & Gaming wiki on Wikispaces, one of the best fan-created resources for the game. I contributed a fair amount to the wiki myself both prior to setting up Ad Infinitum Adventures and afterwards.

Recently, Wikispaces went from a free to a paid model, making free wikis available only for educational purposes, which took the Icons wiki offline for a while. Site-owner Bob “Bretbo” Bretz and I were able to arrange to get the Icons wiki renewed and back online for fans to enjoy and I’ll be looking into some alternative hosting options to maintain the wiki and its content long-term as an Ad Infinitum sponsored project in support of Icons.

In the meanwhile, enjoy the resources the Icons wiki has to offer and feel free to contribute to what the community there has built!

Icons A to Z: B is for Battles

The second installment in the Icons A to Z series is now available for sale on DriveThruRPG and RPGNow and available to subscribers for download.

“B is for Battles” covers large-scale conflicts in Icons, including how to set up and define the forces involved in a battle, their abilities, and conducting and resolving battle and morale tests. It includes qualities unique to forces, character-scale actions influencing the outcome of battles, and the results of a battle-scale conflict, including losses and collateral damage. It makes a great companion for running a large-scale alien invasion using the material from “A is for Aliens”!
