Unexpected Tales

At Adept Icarus, our top goal is to enable the creation of extraordinary stories!

We love underserved genres and narratives, and to that end, we’re developing tabletop roleplaying games, settings, techniques, and systems to enable your group to tell the story they need to tell.

Does this seem ambitious? We think so.


We’ve spent our lives reading and telling fantastical tales that defied our expectations and challenged our imaginations. Our goal is to bring great stories to everyone regardless of background.

It’s easy to forget that as children, we regularly had a powerful urge to continue developing our character or world hours, days, and even weeks after the game session ended. These feelings kept us looking for more content to consume and games to play.

Adept Icarus wants the help you and your friends fill the void with creations that inspire a childlike sense of wonder. Everyone in your group should share the excitement about your next RPG campaign or one-shot. We want to help you recapture that desire like lightning in a bottle.

Our fascination with creation leads us on. Our passion for underserved tales drives us forward. Urging inventiveness on with only the fire in our bellies to guide us isn’t easy– nor is it safe, but we’re daredevils.

Adept Icarus is flying too close to the sun, and we’re taking you with us. Buckle up and enjoy the flight.
