Cthork Borg

Concept: “Gloomy gilded age struggles against cosmic horror”
Content:
A full adaptation of the Mörk Borg core system for weird, investigative horror in the early 20th century
Writing:
An appropriate mix of clear instructional text with more evocative descriptions
Art/design:
More traditional layout and design than some releases, but the colors and illustrations establish the setting and tone well
Usability:
At 120 pages, a bit heftier than the norm

Lichoma

Concept: “There is nothing but the City.”
Content:
A complete, setting-centric RPG based on the Mörk Borg system
Writing:
Well written with a consistently bleak and visceral tone. (Did you expect anything less?)
Art/design:
Fairly traditional graphic design and layout with illustrations that support the theme well
Usability:
Verbally and visually graphic in some places

Mörk-drasil

“The old gods are dead, and people are fighting for the right to survive in a world ruled by monsters.”

On the Bones of Bathala

Concept: “On the Bones of Bathala is a grimdark game inspired by Ancient Philippines and Filipino folklore creatures.”
Content:
Includes alternate apocalyptic lore, setting-specific character creation and rules, gear, and monsters
Writing:
Maintains Mörk Borg’s tone and focus but adds a markedly more-condescending attitude and humor
Art/design:
Graphic design and layout all show Nohr’s influence but tend toward more distinctly liberal utilization of space and an aesthetic that leans more toward clear mimesis than affective expression
Usability:
A stand-alone, fully functional product exploding with character

“I’m completely blown away by how much content is packed into this stylish, evocative RPG that blends unique mythopoeia with doom. Heck, there’s even dedicated sections for character creation and GM content!! The premise is ‘simple’ (you dive into Lambana, the Great Balete Tree in the Old World, to seek fulfillment of a deep desire) but the brief prompts offer the foundation for a creative GM to build a crazy, multilayered world where one-eyed giants, rotting humanoids, and half-horse half-men roam an ever-shifting environment. I can’t praise the content, theme and even illustration highly enough.”


Tyst Borg

“Metal bands; they compose their own songs of rage and revolt and travel the lands expanding their numbers so they can one day confront the Undying Orchestra itself.”
