Steve Kenson has put out another great Supers RPG. I can't wait to play ICONS. :yo:
I'm considering it for a modern myth campaign. I've been waiting for a great FATE+Supers game!

RPGNow has it, and the reviews are in...

i've been waiting to see if there was a review on this system, and now, thanks to you, my interest is piqued. Thanks!

It's a fun game. I don't like that the GM doesn't get to roll dice, though.

Great game. The random generation system is wonderful for creating original character concepts. Some examples in my group: (1) A by product of a super soldier program that left him as puny as he was pre-treatment but with near-cosmic level willpower and tenacity. His motto is "don't tell me what I can't do" and he is a 98-lb badass. (2) a hyper-religious nun who believes she is the spiritual descendant of Florence Nightingale and can both heal and make villains feel sorry for their crimes (3) a robot who has the mind of his Steve Jobs-like creator but with enhanced strength and invulnerability. In addition he looks like his creator who passed away and has legal rights to his fortune which is being contested in court.

Love the Fate system. If you want to do modern spy fiction, try using Spirit of the Century rules. It works just great.
