Astonishing Adventures: Into the Idiot Box


Into the Idiot Box

What begins as a normal day fighting crime becomes an impossible journey into a dimension of nostalgia-fueled television when a cosmic trickster demands the heroes relieve his boredom. As (bad) luck would have it, the trickster isn't the only force working against the team. Can they return reality to its regularly-scheduled programming? Or will they be trapped forever in a nightmare of cliched sitcoms and cheesy action tropes? Find out as we travel… Into the Idiot Box!


Into the Idiot Box is a one-shot adventure for four to six PL 10 heroes. Much of the adventure’s challenge comes from creative roleplaying, making it appropriate for small or lower-PL hero teams by increasing or decreasing the number or power level of the fictional opponents the heroes encounter. While the adventure begins in Freedom City and includes an iconic Freedom City opponent, it can easily be set anywhere on Earth-Prime or your own setting and accommodate almost any antagonist.

Astonishing Adventures brings you exciting, ready-to-run scenarios for Mutants & Masterminds, Third Edition, complete with all the action and villains you need to bring the story to life!

Original electronic
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.
