New Release: Stark City Campaign Setting and City Building Toolset

The Stark City Campaign Setting and City Building Toolset PDF is now available at RPGNow and DriveThruRPG.

Stark City is a setting for the ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying Game that puts the PCs in the center of the action.

To quote Steve Kenson, ICONS creator, from the Foreword:

ICONS wasn’t intended to have just one setting, officially sanctioned. It’s a game meant to encompass a wide range of superhero settings, and Stark City is just such a setting. It is both a source of inspiration and a home for all of those diverse ICONS adventures to comfortably take place, a framework to tie them together, and a springboard for your imagination. From the streets of the downtown Silver District to the ultra-modern Telsa Industrial Park, from the wealthy Platinum Coast to the seedy dives of Geartown, you’ll find endless opportunities for taking the ideas found in this book and transforming them into stories of your own, because Stark City is ultimately about your heroes and their stories, an additional player to add to the ensemble cast of your ICONS game.

As a very special bonus: Steve Kenson has written an accompanying city/setting building toolkit for ICONS -called ICONIC Settings. Partly inspired by the city building rules in the Dresden Files RPG, the ICONIC Cities rules allow the players to tie setting creation into character generation and devise aspects that are tightly incorporated into their own setting.

A Print On Demand (POD) version will follow shortly.

This project was made entirely possible by the support of our generous backers of the Stark City Kickstarter in 2012.

Authors: Steve Kenson, Mike Lafferty, Walt Robillard, Jason Tondro, John Post, Steve Perrin, Dan Houser, Joe Bardales, Dave Woodrum, and Andrew Collas

Artists: Don Griggs, Dan Houser, Rick Hershey, Scott Harshbarger, Adrian Smith, Jacob Blackmon, Walt Robillard, Jon Gibbons, Bradley McDevitt, and Jessica McDevitt

My contributions include the Catacombs chapter (Stark City's criminal underground, both literally and figuratively), the supervillain Botanika and her secret lair the Vanities Health Spa on the Platinum Coast, and the nefarious MAKO Commander.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you check out Stark City!

Zenith Comics Presents: HEROIC

Who hasn't dreamed of putting together their own comic book? Well Andrew Collas has, and he has a Kickstarter going to try and do just that. Produced by Friend of the Just Add Heroes Blog Walt Robillard, owner of Hazard Studios (publishers of the SUPERS! RPG as well as ICONS products), Zenith Comics has been the campaign setting for much of Andrew's work. I think it would be really cool to see an actual comic book associated with a supers RPG, so please take a look and consider making a pledge.

Update: Anyone coming from the JUST ADD HEROES blog who pledges $5 or more to the Zenith Comics Presents: HEROIC Kickstarter will receive a free HAZARD Studios product - just make sure to let them know you came from here!

Thanks for reading!
