Today it was announced that Green Ronin Publishing (publishers of the DC Adventures RPG, A Song of Fire And Ice Roleplaying and the Mutants & Masterminds RPG) would partner with designer and developer Steve Kenson and his publishing imprint Ad Infinitum Adventures to publish and distribute a new edition of Kenson's Icons Superpowered Roleplaying game. Called the Assembled Edition, the new edition brings together rules previously published by Adamant Entertainment and written by Kenson.
Said Kenson, "In production now with great graphic designer Daniel Solis and the ever-steady artist Dan Houser (who has defined the look of Icons since the beginning), the Assembled Edition brings Icons up-to-date with all that has happened since its initial publication and gives Ad Infinitum a solid foundation to build upon. It includes updates from Great Power (while preserving that book's value as an expanded powers book) along with a lot of 'core' material like pyramid tests (in all their glorious variations), supplemental rules from Villainomicon and Team-Up, and updated art and graphic design in the style of Great Power, all in a beautiful new hardcover book!"
Icons Superpowered Roleplaying: The Assembled Edition is due out this summer from Green Ronin Publishing and Ad Infinitum Adventures.
