Infected: First Edition

Suggested Price $1.00

Infected is a game about an Apocalypse - one that appears to be a zombie apocalypse at first, but which develops along far stranger and more eldritch lines as time goes on.

The rules, based on the Schema engine, are built for an action game, which includes fighting, but also includes running, dodging, holding shut doors against the dead, and so on.  There are zombies.  There's eldritch things.  There's sorcery.  And there's some moderately mad science.

In addition to the rules, character sheets, and so on, some of the fiction of the setting is given here as three seperate short books, each of which is a codified section of an RPGnet "riff" thread from which the game was born.

This project was previously under development as the Infected Living Archive; now that it's reached a release-worthy state, it's been re-listed.  Updates for errata and general improvements may be possible in future as needed, but the base game here is complete.

Considering printing this, and I noticed the pages have no page numbers, but the table of contents references them. Not bad if read electronically but difficult on paper. Any chance for a quick update?

Oooh, declaring this finished-ish huh? Rock on, been a fan of your stuff since way back when I found the 1st edition of Hoard.

It's had plenty of playtest and heaps of editing attempts, so... Yup, done-ish. Certainly enough that I can start actually putting the *supplement* stuff I have for it out there.

(Calling it 1.0 probably hints at the possibility of a 1.1, 1.2, etc, which is there, but it's very much a working game as is.)

Nice to hear, I look forward to it!

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.
