    Steve Kenson has put out another great Supers RPG. I can't wait to play ICONS.
    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...

    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.

    Sounds like a great game!

    The FATE innovation of aspects seems to attach easily to any other game system. We've connected it to Villains & Vigilantes as the missing skills/merits system, to Vampire: The Masquerade and Changeling: The Lost as replacements for resources and the like, and to Mekton. Aspects make an interesting ingredient to an AD&D campaign!

    So ICON has a lot going for it.
