Tunnel Fighting Under The Martian Surface - A Post Apocalyptic Mars - Stars Without Number Actual Play Adventure

The PC's have encountered a group of red men martian underground salvagers aboard a giant underground nuclear drilling machine. The players have elected to ride with these folks for a little while. Thing are about to get wild and wholly in the ancient Martian tunnel systems. They've entered Serpent men turf and are very near the edge of the Dark Martian territory.
These areas are the richest artifact fields and relic technology zones on the planet. There are also a boat load of serpent men underground temple structures, extensive military bases, and lots of weird technology below ground. The PC's are about to learn this as they are going to get embroiled in an all out war between two rival factions of red men underground cannibals and hybrid serpent people! 

There is a good chance that a Shoggoth might be released. Did mention that some shoggoths have psychic abilities in my campaigns?
