Four Days To Go On Mark Taormino's 'The Secret Machines Of The Star Spawn' Adventure Kickstarter For Your Old School Campaigns

Chocolate Thunder and Otto the Viking are taking down the "Sucka!"
Get On Board Right Over
Well there's only four days to go on Mark Taormino's old school adventure 'The Secret Machines Of The Star Spawn'. I'd love to see a few more perks unlocked on this one and it looks like it would be a fantastic crawl for a party to help out Chocolate Thunder and Otto The Viking!
There are four days left and while the adventure is 'funded' and its ready to go off, there are still a boat load of stretch goals to pack this adventure to the gills with more encounters, maps, bonus levels, and still more.
After reading & reviewing the Hanging Coffins of the Vampire adventure, I can tell you that this one is going to rock. There's some great goals that have already hit the mark but with only four days to go there still time.
Robo-Vikings? Um... yes. They are not happy!

 The plot goes down something like this : 
Locals have been hearing whispers of strange happenings around the Ancient Volcano. Rumors over the last few months of an unspeakable evil that has risen up inside. An evil that “fell from the stars.” They say there is something wicked and devilish going on inside. Highwaymen report of strange creatures, mechanical monsters, and "Little Green Men" that are roaming the land causing chaos and mayhem! 

The locals are at their wits end. They put out a call for the bravest, the strongest, the smartest group of adventurers they could find... and unfortunately for them, your group has "answered the call." You and your stalwart band of adventurers know exactly what to do...  plunder the mountain for the treasure within! And maybe figure out what those pesky locals are bitching about!

Half of the adventure takes place in the Volcano Dungeon Lair and the other half on a huge, Futuristic Spaceship which the Star Spawn has had "parked" above the planet unknown to anyone for the last 1000 years! If we can hit enough stretch goals we'll "unlock" more encounters, dungeon levels and ship levels etc!
 Because of the generic nature of the adventures that Maximum Mayhem Dungeons design they can be used with a wide variety of the original system, OSR retro clones systems,
 and derivatives of the world's most popular fantasy game.
According to the website : 
Adventure Module used with OSRIC(tm) or adapted to DCC, Pathfinder, D20, Labyrinth Lord, BFRPG, Swords & Wizardry, or FRP OGL v1.0a!
 This makes this style of adventure very economical and an easy plug and play fit for your style of campaign. 
But there's only four days left on this kickstarter and there's more rewards, more levels, etc. 
So get aboard the Secret Machine kickstarter today before its too late!
I've seen the quality of what Mark puts into his product and he has been working on this adventure for a while. I can say with confidence that this will meet or beat the energy and gamibility of the 'Hanging Coffins Of The Vampire Queen'.
