Michael Mars

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.”

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)

Conventional Mörk Borg layout and design with some trippy artwork and an obligatory femur

A trio of 6-point tables
Writing:
Tongue firmly in cheek
Art/design:
Yellow. Pink. Black. Old Newspaper Type. Copperplate Gothic. Good to go.

A lance-wielding goblin class with a beastly mount
Writing:
Includes standard class profile (the mount, not rider, benefit from class features) and a stat block for the hellhound
Art/design:
Text heavy, but uses color to organize sections and highlight important information

As a composite character, poses certain risks but also provides particular benefits

Efficiently expresses the core concepts with sharp style and appropriate imagery
Art/design:
Fills the page with text and a fairly detailed central image that elaborates on the class concept
