Weekly Beasties: Maggot God

Suggested Price $1.00

The Maggot God is a Weekly Beastie developed by Gorgon Breath Games! You can support additional monsters through a pay-what-you-want donation, or backing our Patreon. Check out our home page for more details!

In nature, maggots are immensely useful creatures which help dispose of dead tissue. Under the influence of the Evil Insect God, they can be transformed into something more – a monstrosity used to spread its power and influence over the land. To enemies of the Insect cult, these beings are called Maggot Gods. And while they carry no actual divinity within themselves, the name is not entirely unearned.

Maggot Gods are born into existence at places where Insect cults worship, usually the efforts of intense devotion or years of sacrifice. The act corrupts an ordinary maggot and lets it grow into an unnatural hulk willing to consume live flesh. A well-prepared cult typically has several sacrificial victims ready for this purpose.

Once the Maggot God has consumed its fill, it undergoes a metamorphosis into a demigod-like being, able to travel planes by eating its way through reality. At this point, most heroes on the physical plane are only able to flee, let alone face its new form, so adventurers are encounraged to destroy all Maggot Gods before this point wherever possible.

A funky, neat idea with some nice details, but it could use some fleshing out. As it is, it served nicely as a fun and creepy of an evening's adventure at the gaming table.

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.
