Pathogen Unclassified

Watermarked PDF

Three years ago, civilization fell. A parasite, previously undiscovered, simultaneously struck several global population centers and transit hubs. Those infected by it became frenzied with the urge to feed, spreading the contagion through their bites and scratches. As if anticipating every attempt at a cure, the parasite mutated faster than could be tracked. Society imploded and there was no one left with the authority to put it back together.

Only one out of three people survived the collapse. Since then, even more have died of infection, malnutrition, and from struggles with other survivors. To make matters worse, the Infected haven't gone quietly to their graves. Most of them, two thirds of the global population, still linger hollow-eyed and gaunt upon the earth, sniffing intermittently at the air for signs of their next warm-blooded meal, but a few have been even more irrevocably changed. Warped by the parasite into colonies of mutated beasts, or cursed with mental powers beyond their ability to control, they are hated and feared...and coveted, by the last pharmaceutical company left in the world.


To keep out their ravenous neighbors, the remaining Survivors have banded together into close-knit Communities, building little pockets of order amidst the wreckage. Some are founded on the rules of the old world. Others raid and enslave. More than a few dream of one day establishing their own kingdom.

It's into one of these that the players are thrust; as lawbringers, as peacekeepers, as civil engineers, and as generals. With courage and determination they can push back the bandits, the Infected, and the other, stranger things that lurk in the wild, to carve a place for themselves in the ruins.


Pathogen: Unclassified is a tabletop game of survival horror in which the players don't just struggle against other humans and the Infected--they fight to grow and protect their own settlement. With fast-paced tactical gameplay that supports strategic city-building (and vice-versa!), Pathogen is easy to pick up and hard to put down. With all the tools to provide you and your friends with a deep campaign or a terrifying one-shot, this game book makes the perfect library addition to your cave, lead-lined bunker, or remote wilderness cabin.

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.
