"This new Mothership zine about a haunted space monastery has incredibly sexy layout (ultramodern but colorful, think Mirror's Edge), rich monastic intrigue and creepy prophesies. Check it out!" - Ian Yusem, author of "Moonbase Blues". 

The power station on the moon Bodhisattva 2a is nearing the end of its lifecycle and without it, the small Zen colony established there will freeze to death. Abbot Benz-Shiroyuki requests aid. He is willing to give over salvage rights to the decommissioned and heavily damaged terraforming tower at the top of the space elevator to any willing to print a working power converter in the Manufactory and deliver it to the colony. 

The catch? In his post, the Abbot neglected to mention that the tower’s AI, Aishi, believes itself to be a manifestation of the deity Mahakala, lord of time, death and destruction who doesn’t take kindly to intrusions into its sanctum. 


Nirvana on Fire is a licensed, third-party supplement for the Mothership RPG that contains everything you need for a night of horror among the stars. It has been carefully designed to provide GMs with an efficient, table-ready document that is low on fluff and high on utility so you can get down to gaming. This module can be easily tied into an existing adventure, stand on its own, or become the start of something new. Whatever you do, make it your own and have fun.  

What's inside? Everything you need to run a horror-tinged, sci-fi exploration including:

  • Two unique and vibrant locations; Mahakala’s Terraforming Tower and the Moon Colony of Siddharta’s Peace, each with their own possibilities for ongoing intrigue.  
  • Alternate starting conditions geared for either one-shot or mini-campaign play.
  • An array of original monsters and NPCs including the unstable, bio-technical horror the Avatar of Mahakala. 
  • A bonus scenario generator in case anyone survives.

Hi, I got a copy of Nirvana on Fire as a Kickstarter backer for Dying Hard on Hardlight Station.  Is there any way I can get the updated v1e PDF too?

You bet! The updated PDFs should be up on Pledgemanager for backers within the next few days. I'll post a notification when they are up. 

Awesome! Thanks

Hey there, I was just curious if there might be a chance to purchase a physical add-on copy of Nirvana on Fire during the Cleaning of Prison Station Echo campaign?

Hi Islif, I've got something special in mind for Nirvana on Fire coming up so am not currently planning to offer it as part of The Cleaning of Prison Station Echo campaign. 

Thank you for the quick response and exciting news!

I'll keep an eye out going forward. :)

Hey, I've got this together with Hardlight Station KS, but where can I find the sound bits mentioned in the book?

Do you mean the sound files for Hardlight Station? If so, they should be in a ZIP file along with the rest of the digital downloads package. 

No, I meant Nirvana On fire. But after reading the module again, I realized that I've misread it It mentions a prerecorded greeting, but it's in game recording, my mistake :) 

I'll be running Nirvana for Halloween weekend. Fingers crossed it will go well.

It depends on what you mean by "well" I guess ;-) . For the PCs? Doubtfully. For the players, I'm sure you'll have a good time!
