Maggot Machine Quickstart: Infestation

Suggested Price $5.00

Infestation is an introduction to the world of Maggot Machine


The year is 1994, just like last year and the year before. The world is a ruined place where hideous mutations: Maggot Machines, reign and the Guilds hide deep in the UnderLand praying they stay undiscovered.

The Guild Knights are sent forth in Brigades to bring back the forgotten and hidden treasures of the lost world from a time before the Great Maggot. It might be a spoon, a bar of soap, or dare you dream, a can of chunky dog-food. And your payment for such excursions. Bolts. And pain.

Pain in the form of the Skinner Cops that will beat you for the smallest infraction. Pain in the form of Guild Lords demanding ever greater treasures in a world running dry on all but acid rain. Pain in the jagged blades that the Great Maggot has bred into existence. Pain in the disease that will one day make you one of THEM. But there is hope.

The Guilds need leaders, and with your wealth and prowess you can climb the greasy pole and take control of the UnderLand and lead your people to whatever it is you claim is salvation.

Will you join the Guild of Birds and find a way to break this tribulation? Will you join the Guild of Mysteries and unseat the Great Maggot so that its awful things become your servants? Perhaps you will join the House of Void and finally end it all.

Only by questing can you seize power, so strap on your armour, check your geiger counter and chamber a round in your pistol. LightHell awaits…

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.
