ICONS: The Scarlet Hood

Finally finished reading the rules to ICONS. It sounds like it should be a fast paced fun game an. I hope to get a session going in the next few weeks. There's a couple issues that I have with the game and I'll be talking about them soon. But for now, I'm enjoying the random character creation. It's really a fun challenge to piece together a character based on the powers and abilities rolled but it's a great creative exercise.

When physics professor Kane Foster's assistant DA wife was murdered while prosecuting the son of a local crime-boss, something inside of him died. Shattered by the brutal murder and without much aid from the corrupt police department, Foster felt forced by circumstances beyond his control to take the law into his own hands. Thus, inventing an invisibility cloak to aid in his hunt for those responsible for his wife's death, the Scarlet Hood prowls the dark alleys and the grim underworld of the city.


  1. It's a hero generator found here:

    The site is in Portuguese so it might take a bit to figure it out. If you know spanish, that helps.

    Just click on the animation icon in the upper right.

  2. I think you picked the right system, but the rules as-is has some bugs. Like: how do you resolve combat between two PC's?
