does anyone know when V2 pops if the current pdf version will be updated, or if it will be necessary to buy the V2 pdf?

A great ruleset that has inspired me to bring my kids into the role playing hobby. One or two turns and everyone gets the rules and we can get on with the story!

Hey, I finally got around to going through all my cyber monday sales purchases and I have a few questions about this set.

1) is there a reason (ICRPG_Core_Print_n_Play_Minis_1.3.5.pdf) is included twice on the file list? was that meant to be 2 different files but they were accidentally named the same thing?

2) when I was checking the website for this product one of the free offerings is a deck of loot cards, is there a reason that isn't included in the core set for its loot table and will it be in future products?

3) are there meant to be map assets in this set? I love the monster/pc tokens but the previews I saw of this had like... location and prop assets in the same style, Are those a different product or are they free somewhere like the loot deck?

Other than these 3 things I'm unsure about I have been loving this book/system. The concept, art, mechanics and world lore are all superb. I can't wait to run it : )

My question also. Does the ICRPG not come with IC's?

What is the base mechanic behind this system? Is it merely one more d20 clone/variant (any edition) or is it better then that?

Maybe the Quickstart will answer your questions:

Does the digital edition 1.3.5 have bookmarks that I'm not seeing on my phone?
Customer avatar

Definitely no bookmarks here.

Is there a way I can purchase JUST the paper miniatures from you? I have no doubt this is an awesome product but I have no use for yet another gaming system but I'm always on the look for good paper stand ups, and things to use as handouts and props for my games.

In a year of absolutely fantastic RPG rules and reference materials... this book (which was a complete surprise to me) is my Book of the Year for 2017. An amazing and inspiring work that establishes a framework and approach that can be leveraged with any system.

I read the Quick Start and then immediately purchased the full version pdf. This game is fantastic if you like Super Fast Running TRPGs with as much crunch as can fit without slowing the flow. This is a masterpiece of an RPG. Really dig the art style. Super happy with this purchase.

Should I wait till v3 to buy the paperback?

If you value dead tree books above all else, then you better. Otherwise just get the pdf version. It has all the updates and it is up to date.

Has the POD been updated to the latest release?
Customer avatar
Daniel W September 01, 2017 8:22 pm UTC
Nope. The PDF version has been updated, but I think he is waiting for 2nd edition (may come as early as Spring 2018) to update the POD version. The reason he gave is because he doesn't want the early customers to feel like their printed copies are out-of-date already, and also because it takes a few weeks to go through the approval/proof process for print products, during which time the print version might be unavailable.

Wait, forgive me but, the product's not even a year old and there's a 2nd edition coming out?

Todor P September 11, 2017 10:37 am UTC
Well, to be fair, the description does start with "You REALLY want this PDF"...

Ordered this several weeks ago. First time ordering a print product from here. When can I expect it?

Purchased Core and Vol.3 material. Read most of the rules and finished preparing all the cards, very excited to get started playing!
First impression is very positive! Rules seem simple enough to learn/teach with ease yet robust enough to do some awesome fighting/exploring/looting.
Artwork looks absolutely amazing. The simple, black and white style really makes the game stand out among the many other game titles. Bold choice but I am digging on it!

Will comment again when I had the chance to actually play a couple of games :)

Also, the price is almost a steal, even if you are not interested in the game itself too much, get the cards. I just had all 100 laid out in the living room and already got a ton of ideas for fantastic stories.

The Imperium Belt section seems to be dupkicated in my hardcopy. It appears on page 52, then again on page 53, though with a different layout.

Well, they just got my vote! I mean, anyone who has a YouTube channel named "Drunkens and Dragons" is my kind of player community.
Customer avatar
Blah B November 30, 2017 7:59 am UTC
Just a heads up: The author changed his YouTube channel's name from "Drunkens and Dragons" to "Runehammer" to reflect the branding better.

Is there any sort of "brief" that can explain the changes between version 1.1 and 1.2?
Customer avatar
Damien L June 24, 2017 1:36 am UTC
Cosmetic change only. The term DM has been replaced with GM (Game Master) throughout - That's all.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
