What is Icar?

The core rules are high resolution PDFs filled with pictures. Click here to find out for yourself! Icar is a free roleplaying game, the kind you place with pencils, paper, dice and a bunch of friends. You can download the PDF for free and either print it or play from a laptop or iPad.

Icar is a space opera, more light hearted than hard science fiction. It is set in a distant future where a benevolent Imperium protect the human race, which is battling race of killer robots it created!

Up to date news can be found on the blog, questions, feedback and chat can be found on the forum.

What can I download?

So far there are three documents. The Core Rules include everything you need to play: rules, setting, sample adventure, equipment, character sheets, maps and more.

The Equipment Index is a batch of handouts that represent things in the game, such as weapons, cars and spacecraft. You don't need it to play but players do love handouts!

The Fleet Setting is a military source book where your players take the role of bionic Fleet Troopers in artificially intelligent powered armour. It includes lots of information on the Droids and enough GM hooks to run a campaign.

Is it really free?

Yes! This is my hobby. The PDF will remain free. When you download from DriveThruRPG, you can Pay What You Want. That may be nothing or a kind donation.
