Contagion 5e Alpha Test


Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by up to 25%! For more values, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

The world of Contagion is a dark and terrifying place. On the surface it was no different than the world you and I live in. Most people went about their lives never realizing the terrors that walk among them.

Despite humanity’s ignorance, the horrors were there, beneath the surface. Angels, demons, gods and Hellspawn made war in the shadows, until 2016 when the small town of Mauston, Wisconsin was ravaged by supernatural beings. Now the supernatural exists in the open. Terror lurks in every shadow. Gods fight openly for human worship. Creatures once thought to be pure fantasy stalk the streets. How will you survive?

The Contagion 5e Alpha Test brings the world of Contagion to the 5th Edition of the world's most popular roleplaying game!
This is an alpha playtest document. As more materials are added to the Alpha test, this document will grow and change, giving access to those who purchase early at no additional cost through product updates.

For the current iteration, use these elements alongside the 5e OGL classes and feats of your choice. For optimal modern experience, consider using these elements alongside the classes and features presented in either the Codex Miscellaneorum from Aegis Studios or Ultramodern5 REDUX (5th Edition) from Dias Ex Machina Games. Make sure you are set up to receive emails from Aegis Studios so you don't miss out!

This book contains rules, setting material and fiction that use the occult, the supernatural, horror, urban fantasy, violence, magic, angels, demons, religion and various potentially offensive subjects and elements in order to tell make-believe stories. This is NOT an endorsement of any of these themes.

It is only a game.
Nothing in here is real.
If you cannot handle that:
Don’t play.
Don’t read.
Get help.

Everyone else: enjoy!

Love the disclaimer. It's a sad commentary on the times that statements like this are necessary. The virtue signaling leftwing SJWs must be crushed. Now they're infecting the table top gaming industry. Let this be their Waterloo.

The disclaimer has been present on Contagion books in one form or another since 2004, with very little change.

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.
