The Latest Word On The Kick Starter For On Maximum Mayhem Dungeon #2: Secret Machines of the Star Spawn by Mark Taormino

Chocolate Thunder and Otto the Viking are taking down the "Sucka!"
More details right
 The Kickstarter for the old school science fantasy adventure Maximum Mayhem Dungeon #2: Secret Machines of the Star Spawn  adventure 
by Mark Taormino has been heating up.  He's already unlocked the second series of stretch goals and we've got a while to till this Kickstarter is over.
So basically this is another of the twisted creations of Mark Taormino whose frequently creating some really nicely twisted adventures that work with Osric or AD&D first edition. The first one of these adventures had a whole different sort of twist on the usual D&D vampire tropes and then took the whole adventure in a completely other direction with his Hanging Coffins of the Vampire Queen. That one is out now and I highly recommend it for your old school table.

My first KS module "The Hanging Coffins of the Vampire Queen." successfully funded in Dec 2013 and shipped a month ago or so! You can click the image to go to the website if you want to buy a copy of it or check out some previews!

You can order that one right over on the Freakshow Games home page right

 So it looks like Chocolate Thunder and her adventurer pals are going to see the light of day and might become a thorn in the side of the Star Spawn and co. Robo-Vikings? Um... yes. They are not happy!
This module contains 'adult content' and yeah they pretty much had me at the Robo Viking warriors. To be honest because I love the look and feel of  what I've seen with this Kickstarter.  Mark and co. did a terrific job with the Hanging Coffins of The Vampire Queen.  Secret Machines looks to be even more awesome! 

Chocolate Thunder and Otto the Viking are taking down the "Sucka!"

 The plot according to the Kickstarter page :
 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! 

Spoiler Alert! Yes you will find this craft and be able to fly it!

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!

The first two stretch goals have been unlocked and I'm really looking forward to this one! One of the nice things about these modules is the fact that they're actually edition neutral in the true sense of the word. "This module can also be used with any OSR, OGL system, e.g. Pathfinder, DCC RPG, etc!"


  1. Wow thanks Eric! That looks awesome! I really appreciate you helping to get the word out!

  2. Anything I can do to help get the word out there about the Maximum Mayhem Dungeons line out there. I know the amount of work that has gone into these adventures over the last couple of months. The gap between pro and fan has narrowed and its incredible how much care goes into your products.
    I'm always trying to push for the little guys who are quietly creating some of the old school adventures that are pushing the envelop of gaming. Nice job Mark and glad I can help spread the word.

  3. Thanks Needles I really appreciate that! We're working hard to create these products as awesome as can be made on small budgets! Let me know if you have any questions. Add me on FB too when you have time. Also I have about 10 more lined up as well after this one!

  4. You already have pal, you might know me under my day time identity of Eric Fabiaschi mild manner sewing machine repair man.At night my fanatic OSR dungeon master guise is revealed!
