Beta Maxx Death Unhallowed Edition

Watermarked PDF

Nah man, it's just an urban legend. Like there's some World War I soldier with his stomach missing, a gas mask, and a bayonet that is going around killing people? Sure man, you really believe that crap? Whatever, I dare you to stay overnight in the apartment tower there tonight. What's wrong? Are you scared? Chicken? I'd stay there overnight. Go on Chicken, stay overnight here with me.

Beta Maxx Death is a Slasher-Horror Movie genre game built off the Beta Maxx engine set in a non-specific modern setting. It openly riffs off classic Halloween movie tropes:

  • lunatics with big sharp weapons
  • haunted buildings that will kill a large number people
  • ghosts that will possess the weak-willed
  • surreal landscapes of the mind

It is a light rules engine intended to give a combination of support structure but plenty of scope to solve the problems before the players in a variety of ways. 

It includes a new mechanic called "Panic" which, as it builds up, can temporarily hijack your character causing them to react unpredictably, but following the tropes of Slaher Horror movies.

There is also an extensive section on building your Slasher, since in most cases, such a game hinges on the group of Victims, the Slasher, and the various people who reveal tidbits about the Slasher before the last handful survive.

This book includes an unpolished edition of the game, as hinted by the "Ashcan Edition" edition name. So any feedback you have about the game would be greatly appreciated.

Really captures the spirit of horror- especially if you wanted to play a "video nasty." I highly reccommend to anybody that enjoys simple systems and horror. America salutes this Australian game. [...]

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.
