Dune & Doctor Who

Two interesting projects have come to light today, both on the Bleeding Cool news website. They are both ideas I have talked about several times in the past: “someone should do this,” I have said.

ICONS: The Mastermind Affair

Warning: this post is about tabletop roleplaying games. Sorry if it makes no sense to you. Just released: The Mastermind Affair, PDF-format adventure for the ICONS RPG. (Written by me.)

ICONS RPG
