Mists of Akuma Iconics


Mists of Akuma

It has been over three and a half millennia since the dawn of mankind. Monsoons have become more and more common with the reappearance of the roiling, demon-spewing Mists of Akuma, and the sun's light grows duller with every day that passes after the end of the War of Kaiyo more than a century ago. A pall of darkness has fallen on Soburin and even its greatest heroes are mired in the petty intrigues and never-ending slights of aggressive clans vying for influence, power, or more territory. Spellswords and mercenaries across the countryside in search of fortune, leaving the poor and meek to fend for themselves or die in the harsh reality of a broken world where technology has been either abandoned as heresy or perilously embraced.

Brave the lands of Soburin and earn your place as a master of one of the great clans, oust an oni warlord to carve out your own fiefdom, turn a fortune from the many heretical technology black markets, or make your name a thing to be feared by besting the world’s greatest swordsmen!

Get the heroes you need to support the Mists of Akuma Trade War adventure path!

Hi!. Very interesting characters. But I see they dont exactly follow the character generation rules. For example some have multiple augments an another has sentient augment.

How do I balance them compared to custom character?

Sorry I only saw this now! That's covered briefly in the Imperial Matchmaker mega-adventure:

There are always going to be players keen on making their own adventurers rather than use the iconics given here and that’s okay! The quickest and easiest solution is simply give them a bonus feat (for which they meet the prerequisites) during character creation. Preferably however—working closely with the GM—they can create a unique, personalized ability that includes a small plot arc tying in with a sidequest able to be fulfilled in or near Sanbaoshi. Also there’s nothing stopping someone from cannibalizing the sidequests and special features of the iconics’ builds in Imperial Matchmaker: Guests!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
