Classes

1990s Proto-Folklore

Concept: “A handful of classes and items that are, if not yet proper folk lore, on the verge of reaching full folkloredom, pulled from the deep well that is 1990's culture.”
Content:
Two character classes (one based on a movie starring Brandon Lee, the other on a comic by Bill Waterson) and a handful of items inspired by iconic films
Writing:
Elegantly captures its source materials’ respective characters
Art/design:
That rug really ties the page together
Usability:
Typographical hierarchy makes for easy navigation

2-Headed Basilisk of the 1 Trve Faith

Concept: “An inquisitor class for MÖRK BORG”
Content:
Class mechanics and abilities inspired by the Spanish inquisition, plus character origins
Writing:
Very text heavy; adds flavor to mechanics
Art/design:
Crams a lot of words onto a page around the illustration
Usability:
Origins are a pain to read on most screens

Abominable Suturer

“And so, in a world full of monsters, you’ve created one more.”

Absolved Heretic

Concept: “Finally, the arch-priestess absolved your sins and your broken body was cast in the streets.”
Content:
A traumatized sinner adrift in the Dying World
Writing:
Interweaves flavor with mechanics and features
Art/design:
A cool layout that orients content around the inverted cross
Usability:
Class features aren’t linearly presented, but doesn’t hinder reading or use

Abyss of Hallucinations

“Things are exactly what they seem, yet nothing seems to be what it is. What whimsy worms its way into the warped underpinnings of knowledge?”

An Cailleach

Concept: “She is the lichen-covered rocks and the mountain peaks. She is the bared earth covered with snow and frost. She is the Deep Ancestress, veiled by the passage of time. And you were born under her influences.”
Content:
A class closely aligned with the substances and cycles of the natural world
Writing:
Delivers context and mechanics with loads of folkloric flavor
Art/design:
Includes some very personal art—maybe the first tattoo used as an illustration in Mörk Borg?
Usability:
Class features are more thematically than mechanically oriented (but still pretty useful)

Apocrypha

Concept: “They thought that all of Anuk Schleger's Scriptures were uncovered. I wish they had been right.”
Content: Rules, Tables, Character Traits, Diseases, Treatment & Body Mods, Dungeons, Bounties, Followers, Gear, Summoning, Monsters, Monstrous Classes. A little of everything.
Writing: A variety show with distinct blends of humor and horror throughout.
Art/design: Dementedly scrawled art and public domain images cut through with Mörk Borgian Design Sensibilities
Usability: Clear rules, table of contents, thoughtful page references at the beginning of the monster section. 

Apostate Fence

Concept: “You'll do anything you can to avoid becoming a victim of the machine you helped to create, even if it means selling your soul.”
Content: A fence who laundered their past for an uncertain future.
Writing: Narrative and gameplay elements emphasize apprehension of both the devil you know and the devil you don’t.
Art/design: Public domain art emphasizes a sense of apprehension and foreboding.
Usability: So straightforward it’s criminal. 

Arachnoid Infiltrator

Concept: “The world crumbles. Hunger and Desperation, like twin hounds, drive you into the lighted lands of the fleshly man-things who hate you.”
Content: A spider in man’s clothing.
Writing: Farcical and terrifying in turns. Their ignorance only magnifies the potential danger. In other words: an ideal player character.
Art/design: Shadowy and ambiguous imagery builds a sense of dread. Strong color choices enliven an otherwise simple text layout.
Usability: Unnerve friend and enemy alike.

Babalon's Hangover 2

24 contributors
Concept: “A bestiary brimmed with 105 pages, 42+ Occult monsters, including Esoteric scriptures to die for, and Hopeless dungeons to die even more for.”
Content: Monsters and scriptures and dungeons, Oh my!
Writing: Text ranges from bloviated to concise; brisk to simple. But it is reliably miserable.
Art/design: A menagerie of styles as creative and varied as the community which spawned them.
Usability: Divided in three sections with a full index to aid navigation. Entries of varied accessibility and ease of reference at your table. 

Bestiary

Concept: “The artefact which has come into your possession... these notes-however crude they may seem-however cursed and however twisted, are notes that I would guard with my life.”
Content: 40+ nightmarish monsters, a vampire-like class, lore, tables, a dungeon.
Writing: Renford P. Logan’s journalistic endeavors frame this collection of strongly themed creatures and locales. Realistic portrayals of disturbing events lend weight to the creatures and locales. It is enjoyable to both read and reference.
Art/design: Characterful two-tone illustrations and text elements in a balanced layout. Reserved but impactful use of color.

Very sharp, efficient, and evocative

Effective layout with brighter colors adding emphasis against a cool ground and image

Black Bride of Nechrubel

M_M

Content:
A bridal scvm. Sacrificed at the alter.

A parody of wedding day traditions and tropes, blackened and burned.
Art/design:
Elegant use of line, tone, and color make for a truly disturbing bride.

Wedding “gifts” of variable quality. But tradition is tradition, I suppose.
