Big Week for Superhero Role Playing Games

As I mentioned yesterday, Monkey House Games will be releasing a new version of Villains and Vigilantes to the gaming world Sunday, June 27th on, but there is more great news for super hero rpg collectors.

You know who you are.

This week also sees the release of the first Icons RPG adventure, "The Skeletron Key." The adventure, written by the one and only Steve Kenson, begins with our heroes attending a demonstration of the new SPecial ARmored TANk or SPARTAN battlesuit. They arrive just in time to see things go very wrong as the suit is stolen.

Will our heroes be able to retrieve the suit before it can be mass produced by a villainous mastermind?

Is there something more than meets the eye to the theft?

Only time will tell.

In addition to releasing "The Skeletron Key," Adamant Entertainment have released the "ICONS Character Folio" character generation program. The program allows players to create random superheroes, build superheroes using a point based system, and includes old school character outlines by Dan Houser.
