Cosmic Action for the ICONS RPG: The Great Game



  • A mad god searches for a dark ritual that will give him the means to destroy the universe. 
  • A corrupt space-police organization enslaves civilized worlds to enrich itself. 
  • An empire of sentient machines is exterminating any biological life in its path. 
  • Pirates prey upon the space-ways with impunity.

Meanwhile, the forces of order and good are retreating, scattered and embattled.

The universe needs heroes!

The Great Game blasts you into the far reaches of the cosmos with characters, organizations, starship stats and advice for running a space-based supers campaign.

Written by a stellar cast of RPG talent (including Steve Perrin and Jason Tondro (aka Doctor Comics)) with many a fond tip of the Kirby Crackling Hat to the cosmic supers of yore, The Great Game is a Cosmic Supers setting for the ICONS Superpowered Roleplaying Game that puts the PCs in the center of the action. It is based in the Stark City Campaign setting and is fully compatible with ICONS Great Power.

Vigilance - got nothing to say

hey - just to put it to bed
I'm still getting asked occasionally about Vigilance Press

1) I have no idea what's happening with any of their previous game lines or IP (from before the acquisition).
Per the advice of my lawyer, I will never publish another Wargames product again. Sorry - but that's the safest route.

2) I'm aware of the Monte Cook article. All I can say is: I'm sure Monte meant well and wrote the best article he could with the information he was given. I have no further comment on that.

3) I have no inside info or insight into anything Vigilance Press is doing. I'd simply direct any queries to them.
 I really don't know anyone there anymore and (again, per my lawyer's advice) I have no contact with anyone there anymore.
90 percent of the creative talent who were working with Vigilance Press before the acquisition are no longer affiliated with the company. Including me. Read into that whatever you like.

So - to sum up: I don't know what's going on at Vigilance Press anymore. And I've got no further comment on their current activities, the acquisition or anything.
