Ad Infinitum Adventures is pleased to present an adventure for ICONS: Superpowered Roleplaying produced especially as a charity fundraiser for St. John New Zealand in the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake.

The Aotearoa Gambit is a fast-paced adventure which takes place in New Zealand (Aotearoa) and, after some initial scene setting, presents the players with three possible encounters, which they can choose to resolve in any order. Each encounter is structured to have alternate solutions, other than brute force, and to increase in difficulty if not resolved immediately, making some tough choices for the heroes. These encounters should ultimately lead to a final showdown with the main villain - an encounter which will determine the fate of an entire nation!

This 25-page ICONS adventure was written and edited by New Zealanders Dale Elvy, Morgan Davie, and Cam Banks, who join Ad Infinitum in donating all proceeds from this product, in perpetuity, to St John New Zealand.

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.
