Dungeoneer's Black Book

Concept: “Welcome to the Dungeoneer's Black Book, a collection of boggy holes and haunted cellars. No evening shall pass without the gruesome, ultimately inevitable death of a beloved character.”
Content: 16 dungeons in a disturbing array of contents and formats
Writing: A variety of adventures await you with their own unique styles. The only guarantee is misery.
Art/design: A engrossing (sometimes gross) exploration of dungeon layout and illustration.
Usability: With a variety of design formats, make sure to read your selected dungeon before the session.

Enter the DOME-icile

Concept: “Beneath a slab of stone embedded in the rock, The Giant’s skull is found… gray matter rife with malice is the perfect catalyst for progressing the cursed calendar.”
Content: A dungeon in a skull, with an evil wizard.
Writing: Surprisingly amicable for an Arch Wizard, providing advice for apprentices on how to generate new cursed magic items to punish thieving scvm. 
Art/design: Striking visual depictions of the Dome-icile, with chaotic design elements consistent with the Arch Wizard’s Goblin Workforce.
Usability: This dungeon is approachable—through the nose or eyes. The text is navigable—and color coordinated.

Glimpses of a Dying World

Concept: “Savage creatures lurk in the depths of forgotten crypts, incomprehensible relics lie waiting in the shadows of crumbling tombs, mystics argue incessantly trying to find a escape to the impending doom, and the powerful occupy themselves with vengeance.”
Content:
A sprawling offering of all things Mörk Borg
Writing:
Captures the tone and atmosphere of the Dying World through the descriptive text as well as the character of the mechanics
Art/design:
Adapts the aesthetics and tactics of the core book with extensive use of modified public domain art
Usability:
There’s something here for everyone

Likho

Concept: “‘Likho-one-eyed’ appears in the form of a one-eyed skinny ogress.”
Content:
A beefy combat monster that feeds on negative emotions or flesh—whichever’s handy
Writing:
A concise stat block and a full description of behavior, including non-mechanical features and effects
Art/design:
Graphic and stats presented on a single page with additional lore and information on subsequent pages
Usability:
GMs will need to implement mechanics for special abilities as they see fit; blackletter text may slow reading a bit

Livaras

Concept: “Ethereal giants who stalk their prey in the dark alleys of Galgenbeck.”
Content:
A sneaky, life-draining monster
Writing:
Delivers somewhat complex mechanics in a straightforward way
Art/design:
Illustration’s cooler colors establish a haunting mood and contrast with the sharp yellow text
Usability:
Cumulative damage dice will require minimal bookkeeping

SNÜNGEON

Concept: “Their husks litter the landscape, mountainous swirling shells that are all that remain of the titan snails. Now they serve as a refuge for the stray, the weary, and the weird - and as a lure for fools such as you”
Content: A massive slimy spiral snüngeon.
Writing: Captures the humble majesty of an extinct apex predator. 
Art/design: A comforting white and blue layout makes you want to slow down, grow some stalks, and savor the transformation.
Usability: Explore a snüngeon, make your own snüngeon, there are many titan snail shells left to explore. 

The Benevolent Ignoramus

Concept: “A titan decided to steal a powerful artifact to try and save the Dying World. Sadly for the Dying World this titan was not particularly bright or agile.”
Content:
An ironic take on the mythic fire-bearing savior archetype; also includes stats for ancillary antagonists
Writing:
Well written and filled to the brim with dry wit
Art/design:
Intended for easy reading with color to add visual emphasis and focus
Usability:
Designed for a longer-running plot arc rather than a one-shot encounter

The Glass Herbarium

Concept: “The Herbarium is beautiful and warm. It grows fruits and vegetables despite the snow. And just one taste of the bright red apples that grow inside its glass walls is enough to bewitch a man.”
Content: A location adventure featuring glass, destructible flooring, and plants that probably want to do dreadful things to you.
Writing: The Glass Herbarium’s concise efficient prose blooms into a brilliant, weird fantasy adventure.
Art/design: Consistently clean art and layout hint at a glass sanctuary protected from the scvm of the dying world. 
Usability: Clean but not sterile. Strong stylistic hierarchy makes for easy navigation and reference during play. 

The King Under the Mountain

Concept: “A one way descent into facing the divine destruction that sleeps deep in the planet.”
Content:
A massive subterranean monster that can kill PCs directly or indirectly after it is defeated
Writing:
Conveys the sense of eldritch, ineffable horror that surrounds this being
Art/design:
The semi-obscured subject of the illustration supports the concept’s nature, and use of color helps to add emphasis and visually organize information
Usability:
GMs will need to track dead things encountered prior to the battle
