This is another bundle offer, this time for Icons, a superhero game which I don't know much about. By a tragic coincidence the charity this offer supports is The Trevor Project, providing crisis support for LGBT people ages 13-24; in view of this weekend's events they need all of the support they can get.
"ICONS, by Steve Kenson, designer of Green Ronin Publishing's Mutants & Masterminds, adapts the spirit of fast-playing classics like Marvel Super Heroes and Villains and Vigilantes to a modern narrative design loosely based on Stefan O'Sullivan's Fudge.
Compared to a lot of superhero RPGs, ICONS is fairly short and simple. You won't find exhaustive details or situational rules, and there's no built-in setting beyond "the world of comic book superheroes." The game targets the atmosphere of Silver Age comics and modern animated adventures like Batman Beyond. Mix-and-match heroes and villains from ICONS books, other games, your favorite comics, and your own imagination. The ICONS system provides a balancing mechanism so any group of heroes can work on relatively even footing.
This is a comprehensive collection with the full-color ICONS Assembled rulebook, the major supplements, five Hero Packs of pregenerated characters, and nearly a dozen adventures. We provide each ebook complete in .PDF (Portable Document Format). Like all Bundle of Holding titles, these books have NO DRM (Digital Restrictions Management), and our customers are entitled to move them freely among all their ereaders.
Ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's designated charity, The Trevor Project.
The total retail value of the titles in this offer at launch is US$128. Customers who pay just US$14.95 get all eight titles in our Player's Collection (retail value $67) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
This looks like it might be a lot of fun, and it's supporting a charity that looks like it needs all of the help it can get right now. I think it's well worth buying, but since I get freebies I may be biased, so YMMV. I'll be supporting The Trevor Project with a donation anyway.
