Have you ever wondered what it's like to be one aspect of a mycelial network? Do you enjoy "flipped dungeons" where you play as the villains? If you answered yes to either of these questions—and even if you didn't—you will probably love YUGGOTHI CONFIDENTIAL! Or at least part of you will! Because who among us is merely one thing and not also its opposites, its inchoate potentialities-otherwise? Amirite!?

You are all—collectively—one mi-go, or sapient fungus from Pluto. Your body plan roughly resembles that of a Terran crab, although you are also adorned with many biologically manufactured technical bits and bobs, and you normally reside inside a spaceship that looks like a dented bubble dipped in snot.

“You” are not, however, one mind, but a holobiont: an assemblage of fungal networks, technical apparatus, datasets, and linked organic and inorganic servitors…

In this game, each player controls one function of the mi-go’s totality. The functions work together toward a common goal, but each should fight for her own priorities and act in her own distinct style. Functions are encouraged to disagree: the rules provide a simple mechanism for resolving disagreement.

You do not need a GM for this game, as the GM functions can also be distributed.

This is not a roleplaying game (RPG) about combat or heroism, loot-stacking or princess-saving, but the quest for knowledge—unmoored from human weakness, unaccustomed to human morality—and the politics of decision-making.

Note, this is a truly weird game! We wrote it as a one-off mini-game for the OSR sci-fi game Stillfleet, but we think it is fun in its own right. Of course, the mi-go are also star bad-dudes in many science-horror RPGs.

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.
