About


After 8 long years, countless hours of design and development, and over 2000 copies of the 1st Edition sold, Infinite Power: 2nd Edition is finally here! Whether you want to be the superhero of your daydreams or turn your favorite comic series into an epic campaign for your closest friends, you'll find everything you need to create any world or hero you can imagine within the pages of Infinite Power: 2nd Edition

The idea behind Infinite Power: 2nd Edition was to design a system that allows you the freedom to create infinite worlds for your campaigns and Heroes. Anything seen in Action Adventure Comics or Action movies can find a home here. Inside Infinite Power are the tools to create not just heroic characters, but also individualized powers that can grow and manifest in your Hero as they become more powerful. GMs have the opportunity to create stunning settings, dastardly Enemies, plots full of intrigue and subterfuge, and Henchmen galore!

Not sure what who you want to be or who you want your Players to fight? No worries! Infinite Power is filled to the brim with pre-generated Powers, Talents, Tricks, and Enemies. And let's not forget fully fleshed out Heroes that are ready to play!

Grab a table of friends, a few eight-sided dice, and get ready to experience Infinite Power!

The biggest criticisms that Infinite Power: 1st Edition received were that people wanted more consistent art quality, better layouts, and professional editing. To address these issues, I am teaming up with three great companies!

For this edition, Source Point Press is providing all the art and art direction. They have a rich and varied line of action comics and a stable of top-notch, professional art teams of pencillers, inkers, colorists, letterers, and FX specialists who make amazing works of modern pop art, bringing characters and stories to life in a vibrant and powerful way!

Art from the Salvagers and Hope comics from Source Point Press. This is the art team that will be doing all of the art for the Infinite Power: 2nd Edition RPG!

Creator's Companion Publishing* will be providing the professional editing and development services, as well as future publishing services. They have a great track record of exceeding client's expectations, specifically in the tabletop industry, and will make sure the Core Rulebook you receive will be the best it can possibly be! 

I will also be working with Matt Lloyd from MooreSpark for polished graphic design and layout. 

*Full transparency - Creator's Companion Publishing is my wife's company. Although she loves me, working on Infinite Power takes time out of her already demanding schedule and she and her associate editor don't, and shouldn't, work for free :) 

Many RPG systems limit your actions by allowing one action type per round. Infinite Power: 2nd Edition has a unique Dice Allocation System that allows you to flex your action choices in the moment! Combined with Cinematic Initiative in combat and an Exploding d8 System, the possibilities for Players and GMs in a given round are endless!

Few things are more frustrating in RPGs than having your agency taken away when the person running the game (the GM) rolls a saving throw or beats you at an opposed roll from behind a screen. You've done your best, yet someone else's dice have thwarted you.

The GM never rolls dice in Infinite Power, the Heroes roll all the dice. The Heroes use their Action Dice for everything; moving, attacking, defending, challenges, major and minor powers, tricks, and talents. The Players always decide what they're going to do and how they're going to do it.

When the GM doesn't need to roll dice, they are freed up to craft an engaging and immersive narrative and flex those storytelling muscles! You never feel as if you are the Players' adversary, and the table feels more collaborative for it.

The Enemy building and combat system is simple enough to allow for waves of Henchmen to be thrown at the Heroes for truly cinematic action scenes!

Infinite Power: 2nd Edition also includes robust rules for handling social encounters. Dice shouldn't create complications or barriers for the Players, that's the GM's job!

Superheroes, End of the World, Cosmic Horror, Space Adventure, Supernatural, Ultra-High Fantasy, Weird West, Space Westerns, Urban Fantasy and more are supported by the elegant rules of the Dice Allocation and Exploding d8 System!

This Core Rulebook will focus on the Superhero genre, with information and limited materials about all of the above genres. Moving forward, and with the input of GMs and Players, there will be new companion rulebooks coming, each with a focus on one of the above genres!

As stated earlier, I published the first edition of Infinite Power, and its companion book Infinite Enemies, back in 2011 and have sold thousands of copies in both in PDF and print-on-demand formats. As a designer and tabletop gamer, I'm never satisfied with my work and have continued tinkering with the design over the years.

In early 2017, I realized that Infinite Power was showing its age and I decided to re-imagine the system. After several complete overhauls and years of design & development work, I am proud to bring this game to you! My hope is that everyone who enjoyed the first edition will dive into this edition and find a truly refined, and far more pleasurable, gaming experience.

For those who have never played Infinite Power, I have tried to take what I have learned from many personal gaming sessions, play-testing, hundreds of online conversations, and plenty of blogs and reviews and combine those lessons into a thoughtful, elegant RP system that satisfies Players with dynamic character creation and interesting choices while also satisfying GMs with a toolbox to help create exciting tales and vast landscapes. 

When Kickstarter began, it was the place to come to help artists of all kinds bring their creations to life. Those creations definitely weren't ready, polished, or basically a preorder. Kickstarter was, and can still be, a place where the community comes together to build something greater than the sum of its parts. When I published the first edition of Infinite Power, I did the writing, editing, layout, graphic design (such as it was), and game design by myself. The results were passable at best, but not what I wanted or what the tabletop gaming audience deserved. Kickstarter wasn't around then, but here we are now. 

This time I need your help to hire professionals to do all the things I am not qualified to do. The funding goal is set at what it will cost me to hire those professionals (the creative partners I listed above) to help ensure this edition of Infinite Power is one we can all be proud to have in our RPG collections!

The majority of our funds raised will support the amazing and talented artists, designers, and editors that will make this project shine!

While also taking into account the boring, but important stuff like credit card processing fees, accounting, and fulfillment tracking.

  • 40% Art & Art Direction
  • 35% Layout & Graphic Design
  • 15% Developmental and Copy Editing
  • 10% Kickstarter & Admin Fees

Everyone on the project is excited to be bringing this amazing RPG to your tables!

The funding goal will cover approximately 40 pieces of art, all the graphic design and layout, and the editing needed for the Core Rulebook. This will be a complete work with all the rules you need to play the game and design your own campaigns and enemies, but if you want more we've got plenty of 1st Edition content to update (stat blocks, enhanced backgrounds, plot hooks) and tons of great ideas for future support content!

Risks and challenges

Since this kickstarter is meant to fund graphic design, layout, editing, and art - all of which is yet to be complete, any of these could create delays in final delivery. We believe that we have assigned reasonable lead times for these assets and are devoted to transparency in the process at all times.
