ICONS: The RetConQuest

Watermarked PDF

Ad Infinitum Adventures presents another adventure for ICONS Super-Powered Roleplaying, by game author Steve Kenson, featuring the terrible Tempus Khan from the Villainomicon.

Decades ago, Tempus Khan and his Chronal Horde conquered the world, your world, but now the relentless robot forces of the Khan are after you! A mysterious robed and hooded figure says things are not as they should be, and that you have the power to set them right, if only you can recall it. Powerless and trapped in a world not your own, can you undo... The RetConQuest?

I ran this adventure on the weekend with four players. We`ve been running ICONS for a while and I thought it would be a good break from the campaign we were running. Reading through I remembered the old movie "1984" and "Brazil&qu [...]

With Steve Kenson providing the storyline and Dan Houser providing the artwork, The RetConQuest is probably the closest thing ICONS has right now to an "instant classic." The premise is clever and the structure of the book, mirroring the stru [...]

In a nutshell, The RetConQuest is a solid adventure that seems -- structurally -- more appropriate as an introductory adventure rather than as a stand-alone adventure in an ongoing campaign. The core conceit of 'normal humans' remembering their [...]

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.
