Use this space to cheer the creator along, ask questions, and talk to your fellow backers. Please remember to be respectful and considerate. Thanks!
In 2 days it will be 5 months since the last update on the Character Folio.. Any chance of an update?
No updates here or on the Character Folio project page since December. Will it ever happen?
What is happening with the Character Folio 2.0 now ?
Is there an update on the Character Folio?
Im very pleased with the book. I would have liked it to be the same size as the ICON core rulebook & Villainomincon though. Its a bit smaller.
Got mine today, Pa, Usa
Just got my physical book yesterday. It is awesome! The creators did an excellent job. I will definitely back any else that comes along.
Okay -- I have been getting questions from backers at my email, and I hope to be able to answer this here for the folks interested. Hero Pack 5 will be the next Hero Pack for people interested in being a part of that. Included in the Hero Pack will be a module called 'The Nemesis Crisis' with art featuring some of the characters from the Hero Pack.
Details can be found at:
Thanks to all the interested backers. This will be easier than responding to all the emails. :D
Annnnd there it is. weird. Never mind.
Hey guys, I realized that I blew by the Backers Survey in my email inbox, followed the link to get here -- and no survey, it just keeps dumping me to this main page. Could I get a link, as I haven't gotten a pdf yet?
I am now just the power example pieces -- smaller bits and bobs -- once I finish up the Limits section. I can't wait for you guys and gals to see this artwork. Though, backers who got their characters in Hero Pack 4 Have seen their interior pics as I go along. So, I hope they like them. :)
Thanks, Lee, we're looking forward to getting Great Power out to everyone! Dan H. is hard at work getting the art wrapped up as we forge ahead!
Just want say I'm excited for this book and I love my character art of 'Glacier'!
Not as such, Joe, beyond setting the appropriate skill(s) at a high enough level. There's some discussion of which Fate skills are equivalent of abilities in ICONS, but using it in conjunction with Great Power might require abandoning the Skill Pyramid approach for some concepts.
Steve, in your using Great Power with Fate Core notes do you address Core not having abilities and what to do for a character you want to have Super ability type stuff like Super Strength?
Thanks, Jason, your continued support means a lot to me. I'm looking forward to the future of ICONS as well!
To be sure...
Just letting you know that should you feel the need to keep going, there are those amongst us who would be more than happy to support it. We look forward to the future of ICONS.
I have a number of ICONS ideas, Jason. Some might need to be Kickstarted, most won't, but I want to finish Great Power and get it into the eager hands of backers before I start any other projects!
Any other ICONS related Kickstarter ideas bouncing around in your head, Steve? I'm game to keep contributing if you're game to keep bein' creative.
Not yet, Chris. I'll make sure to add an update when they do to give everyone a heads-up.
Have the backer surveys gone out yet? I'm not in any actual rush, I just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed it.
Amazon Payments had 'lost' my birthdate info for my tax entry. It had also been using the first card we registered with them (my wife and I) when we bought our first books on Amazon. :/
So...they have issues sometimes.
Its back out this morning. Strange. Maybe just a glitch at my bank. Sorry about that.
Chad, Amazon Payments shows your backer payment as "Completed" so you should be all set. I'm not aware of any problems.
Everything good with Amazon payments? I got an email saying the $50 was taken out. I checked my account, and it was $50 less. Now tonight I checked my balance, and it seems to be $50 higher. Im not sure where it came from. It might be totally unrelated. But I dont know from what/where. I was just checking to make sure everything is OK.
Yrs. Just went through. Great!
I see Amazon finally took payment. Glad that appears to be resolved
Amazon payments appear to be going through now.
Have you received the Amazon funds yet? I have not checked my account to see if the $$$ has been transferred yet. Any update? Thanks!
There appears to be an issue with Amazon Payments. I'm in communication with their customer service and KS to get it cleared up as soon as possible. Apologies for an inconvenience.
@Gerry: Yep, I was also curious about it. Glad to know I',m not the only one in that situation.
anyone else still waiting for Amazon payments to collect their pledge money? The funds I pledge still haven't been collected for this, which has never happened before. It usually is instantaneous, but for some reason, the funds still haven't been collected. I want to make sure what I pledged gets to Steve & company
Great! Nearly $8,000. Congrats to everyone.
I received my Hero pic- I am very happy. I cant wait for the Hero Packs.Thanks Dan!!
Many thanks to Steve for the great Kickstarter & all your hard work. I hope there are many more Icons products in the future.
Hey guys and gals!
If you haven't received your Superhero Level Backer award -- namely your character in the incredible, indomitable ICONS style! :)
So, lots of them are finished, and I'm looking forward to getting 'em all finished here shortly -- then laying out the Hero Pack. But to finish up, I'm gonna need your character description! :)
Chad has the right of it, Antoine: ICONS Team-Up is the last product in the hands of Adamant Entertainment, the original publisher of ICONS, and has not been released at this time.
Team up has been delayed and no one is sure when it will see pdf or print.
I'm pretty new to ICONS (only three games so far), but I love it.
Where can I find ICONS Team-Up ? Didn't find the printed version nor the digital one.
Lets hit $7500 !! For Steve!
Just pledged...and the Hero Pack looks great... can't wait
Will a print copy of the new hero pack be available after the kickstarter? I would up my pledge for this, btw.
Any new stretch goals?
Upped my pledge, so up yours!
See the very first (backers-only) update, Robert. You'll find the info there.
Quick question: How do I get access to the playtest material? ( I'm on HERO level of backing)
@chad -- Hero Packs are a quarterly thing I've done in the past -- they usually fill up fast, but this one was insanely fast. :)
Steve- I would add to my pledge for print copies of the GM screen or the Hero Pack.
Dan- Maybe you could have a Kickstarter for the other Hero Pack, you sold 36 hero slots pretty quick here!
@Dan: You da'man, Dan!
@Gilberto Leon -- I will do my level best to insure that the artwork for the GM Screen will be print ready, with or without an additional stretch goal -- and I'll ask around how to best print it out so as to use it. :)
