Extended Adventure Charts[edit]

Because some people like a little more guidance, I've extended the adventure creator given in the main ICONS sourcebook. Use this only if it helps you.

Using This Adventure Creator[edit]

This adventure creator makes very simple adventures of this form:

  • The heroes have to stop <opponent>, which wants to <verb> <noun> but <complication>

Roll once on each table to fill in the missing word. The verb and noun come from the main rulebook.

The opponent is simple, and you might have an opponent in mind, in which case don't roll that. The complication might apply to a scene or to the whole adventure: just, at some point it makes a significant appearance.


D6 Opponent is
1 One villain
2 Villain group where one of the villains likes/loves/owes a debt to one of the heroes
3 Villain group where one of the villains hates/dislikes/has some power over one of the heroes
4 Villain group
5 Natural force, such as a wildfire, a flood, or even (for your more cosmic groups) entropy or time
6 Hero

But (Complication)[edit]

D6 Complication
1 While heroes are in secret ID and can't act
2 Wannabe heroes attack
3 Target claims it's okay
4 Someone steals something important to the plan (ransom money, invention, clue)
5 Character's significant person (loved one, mentor, etc) has conflicting plan for them at just this time
6 Necessary action is something the character has promised not to do

The Crime Tables (Soylent Green's alternate random adventure generation)[edit]

Created these tables for my own ICONS campaign, figured I might as well share it. The document also contains various templates for Pyramid Tests. Download the pdf below.

Two Hallowe'en adventurelets[edit]

Not big enough to be adventures, too big to be adventure seeds, and "adventure saplings" sounded wrong. Download the PDF below.

Reign of the Supermen[edit]

A major event of the early 1990s was the Death of Superman followed by the Reign of the Supermen by DC Comics. This has the potential for numerous adventures where the characters can battle Doomsday, encounter the four different incarnations of Superman that emerged following his death, help the real Superman, combat the cyborg Superman as a recurring foe, and so on, and so forth.

Past Tense True Adventures![edit]

Links to pages or PDF summarizing previous adventures that you have run or had. (Obviously a split that could breed indulgence.)
