Here is what some of our customers have been saying about our Maximum Mayhem Dungeons™ Series of Modules:
"Mark, I think it is great what you are doing for old school gaming. Your products look amazing, and they have a very "Gary Gygax" feel to them. I was really blown away when I discovered your Kickstarter, and I really can't say enough nice things about what you are doing. I belong to a lot of gaming groups / pages, and I am about to promote you on all of them. Keep up the great work, it is appreciated more than you can know (or I can say). I can't wait to get my hands on these adventures! And the character sheets are so well done! Hats off to the artist, they have my players all in a buzz. Just to illustrate the impact that a project like this can have, I have shown my son and a friend of his (who are both 14) this kickstarter, and now two new recruits have joined the AD&D pen and paper ranks! Being able to inspire this generation away from their video games, and back to pen and paper is a rare and wonderful gift. I can't thank you enough for that Mark." - Carl T.
"I've been a fan of Mark Taormino's modules for a while, and I ran my players through the Hanging Coffins of the Vampire Queen adventure recently, having picked it up from Dark Wizard's last kickstarter campaign. My group loved the old-school, no-quarter-given gameplay feel, and I have to say, although the boxed text is pretty wordy, it's really evocative, as is the artwork, including some pieces by none other than Jeff Dee (can't get much more old-school than that)!" - Hawkeye P.
"Thanks Mark, I really appreciate this. Keep up the great work. These are really great modules. Looking forward to taking my players through one of these soon. Probably run Dread Swamp of the Banshee first. It’s great to see the return of the Basic/Expert & AD&D style of module. There is just something special about the style that takes me back. I was watching DM Scotty and he mentioned your website. So really glad to see new modules in the classic format. So let me encourage you to keep ‘em coming! Cheers!" - Anthony F.
"Hi Mark, I received my package today in priority mail. Thank you so much. You are the man. Please keep pumping out the content and don't change a thing. The style and artwork are awesome. The modules have the exact old school vibe that I grew up playing from the mid 80s to early 90s. Greatly appreciated!" - Matt M.
"I received my copies of the modules. Definitely got a wave of nostalgia taking me back to 1981 looking over them! Thanks for your efforts and enthusiasm for this Mark!" - Laurence S.
"Received today...and they are beautiful! I can't wait to dive in. Wow, talk about nostalgia. Love it! Keep them coming." - Joker D.
"LORESMYTH You rock the socks of the module based D&D experience! I just got my package and I am foaming at the bit to tailor these modules. Thank you for making this so accessible and easy to adapt. Lets face it. Each of us has taken every module published and made it our own. This is the legacy of D&D. Modules freakin ROCK *but* you have to tweak them all to make it run smooth in your milieu. Hehe, see what I did there?" - Paul C.
"The module arrived. Absolutely perfect mail gorilla foiling packaging. Legendary work Mark. I look forward to your next module and Kickstarter! Thank you!" Michael K.
"For almost a decade, Mark Taormino has been creating and publishing his brand of old school gaming books under the Maximum Mayhem Dungeons moniker and making them available to us via Kickstarter. Despite the rep that sometimes accompanies Kickstarter campaigns, Mark has consistently provided quality, timely, and affordable entertainment. His gaming modules may remind you of the kind of unforgiving books you might have picked up at a gaming shop in the 80s with the original version of AD&D. His latest Kickstarter is a reprint of all of his works to date and it's a great opportunity to try one, two, or all of them.It's good to see someone like Mark still publishing." - Scott Mc C.
"Mark, Thank you so much for producing this. As a die hard 1st ed AD&D guy it's hard to surprise a group of guys you've played with for 25 years. This is exactly what I've been looking for. Just got all 5 of your soft covers. Keep the goods coming!!" - Slicker 8.
"Mark: I loved my Dwarven King soft cover and am thrilled to get the Coffins and Spawn softcovers from this Kickstarter. I really enjoy using the Dwarves King covers as a DM screens since they are not attached - and the mine car ride is a blast. Keep up the good work on Kickstarter!" - John LM.
"My package just arrived today in the UK. Beautiful - Thank you." - Marc G.
"Hello Mark, after a long shit week at work, I got home to find all these pdf.’s in my inbox. It washed all the bad away. Your work is a blast and I don’t know why I haven’t pulled the trigger on these sooner. No issues on my end and can’t wait to get the physical copies. Wishing you the best! Cheers!" - Stacey M.
"Thanks a lot! Fantastic products you're making! :) It gives the feeling of the "old-school" with the right touch of modernity (I love your NPC-background: very rich and explain well the WHY is the Villain here and WHY he's acting like that: WONDERFUL!) Have a nice day!" - Sébastien
"Dark Wizard Games makes super amazing fun, hilarious, exciting, and awesome OSR compatible adventure modules that look and feel just like the kind you used to get at your local hobby shop in the 1980's. OSR = Old School Role-playing, like AD&D 1st ed. or modern "clones" (OSRIC, Swords & Wizardry, Black Hack, White Box, Blueholme, etc.) Don't mess around with "adventure paths", bleh. Get Maximum Mayhem, and ADVENTURE LIKE A BOSS." - John B.
"The highest quality adventures! This is a must-have for AD&D/OSRIC!" - Dave J.
"Excellent product quality for starters. Most game books have a removable cover to be used as an impromptu screen. The modules themselves are done in a way that call back the 80's AD&D in tone and content. Mark hires some of the best in current and upcoming talent when it comes to the artists, nothing disappoints!" - Ian S.
"Great, funny, and over the top adventures!" - Kevin E.
"I own all of Mark's stuff from past years/kickstarters....and these are some of the top tier products available anywhere....and I REALLY...NO REALLY HOPE he decides to do a box set/hardcover compendium someday so I can throw more money at him ( outside the stripper videos of his on Yulube)...JUST KIDDING!!!...on the video part...I want the other stuff!" :) - Matt R.
"Got my modules #1-4 and I have to say I'm totally blown away. Artwork is incredible. Totally evoke that 1980's feel. Content is well laid out. Storylines are engaging. As a 48 year old kid who refuses to grow up this is a priceless find. Cannot wait for #5. Thank you Mark for doing this. Keep up the awesomeness." - Dave S.
"Wow, I just got my print copies of #1 to #4 of these modules, and I must say, OUTSTANDING! I feel like I just took a dip in a hot tub time machine and woke up in 1982 or something, flipping through the "secret hidden RPG section" filled with amazing treasures of imagination, in my local hobby shop (because in the Bible Belt RPGs were the DEVIL, so it had to be kept on the down-low, much like pr0n.) I love the way the covers are done in the same style as all the TSR classics. I haven't read them all but just skimming a bit and I find the text to be clear and mostly hilarious, along with stellar artwork very much reminiscent of the classic modules of yore. KUDOS for very fine work I will be proud to display on my RPG shelf. I have not read all of these yet but I did enjoy reading the one about the Star Spawn. Too funny. This type of wacky adventure is perfect for our crazy adventuring group, I just need to adjust these a bit to be compatible with 5e characters and mechanics. Looking forward to seeing the print editions, I love the retro-feel, it takes me back to the good ol' days." :) - John B.
"Received my kickstarter books today, and completed my collection. Looking forward to what comes next! Thanks for all your hard work getting these old-school adventures out, they're much appreciated by my players (and feared by their characters...)" - Mark P.
