Content:
Those who fight monsters are doomed to become them
Writing:
Descriptive text is well written and evocative with an extremely efficient stat block
Art/design:
Illustration makes good use of the fragmented reflection conceit; the text is printed backward—you have to read it in a mirror
Usability:
Easy to use without consulting the document at the table; includes a non-mirrored version, but that defeats the concept and execution

Seven furniture solutions to fit an scvm’s tastes and needs
Writing:
Takes a sinister, occult tone with some clever rimshots

Writing:
The first-person POV and travelogue style have a folksy and often irreverent tone
Art/design:
Typefaces, engravings, and paintings reinforce the concept while other graphic elements lend some insidious and esoteric atmosphere
Usability:
Includes player-facing handouts that include lore but no mechanics or GM-specific information

Cross of Glorious Victory of Filth

Concept: “A massive, prolapsed orifice fountains forth a constant stream of viscous contaminants. Drink deeply of its wickedness!”
Content:
The inverted anus cross we’ve all hoped for and dreamed of

Content:
Tenets and random tables for those seeking to enjoy the Warm Embrace
Writing:
As with any cult, alternatingly cheery and welcoming or seethingly malicious
Art/design:
Primarily text with graphic elements to aid use
Usability:
Faster than a real bath and almost as pleasant 

d66 Loathsome Corpse Mounds

Concept: “A revolting slurry of disease and decay.”
Content:
No explicit mechanics besides rolling, but plenty of scenery and potential for shenanigans

Content:
The second volume of collected FÖLK-LORE Jam entries
Writing:
Varies by author, see individual entries under the FÖLK-LORE Jam tag
Art/design:
Varies by entry; single-page entries are well balanced in spreads
Usability: Varies by entry, but it’s all Mörk Borg—how tough could it be?

Grave Matters

Concept: “New uses for dry corpses”
Content:
Undeath-themed classes, gear/weapons/scrolls, optional rules, monsters/NPCs, encounters, and an adventure site
