BEstitchARY

Concept: “The chimeric amalgams and abominable hybrids from origins unknown are wreaking havoc and terrorizing the area. No end in sight to their squalid reign.”
Content:
30 creatures, 900 combinations to mix and match (including BASILISKS) with tables for hooks and additional features
Writing:
Brutally entertaining
Art/design:
Absolutely meticulous
Usability:
Includes digital Stitcherer generator; product page includes instructions for printing as a zine or as cards, or you can just mutilate the book (and this is one of the few times that’s okay)

Bone Slave

Concept: “You roam the gods-forsaken realms in your true skeletal form.”
Content:
A skeleton character class with some innovative options
Writing:
Clear, clean, and concise
Art/design:
Would scream “Mörk Borg” if it had any vocal chords
Usability:
Easily readable and navigable

Dancing Zweihander

Concept: “A massive blade, flying effortlessly, leaving behind a silent swoosh and a trail of dismembered corpses.”
Content:
A malicious, relentless take on the dancing sword
Writing:
Some introductory color text with elaborate Special and table of random actions
Art/design:
Vivid colors highlight an abstract vivisection
Usability:
Some combat caveats for the DM to keep in mind, but nothing overly complex

FÖLK-LORE: Rendezvous & Romps

36 contributors
Concept: “What happens when the lore of our world collides with the Dying World of MÖRK BORG?”
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?

Fugitive Knight

Concept: “Through cowardice and treachery you slew a valiant knight to usurp his title, crest and name.”
Content:
An ironic armor-based class; includes 6 unique armor options
Writing:
Clear, well-crafted, with plenty of inspiration for players
Art/design:
Nicely executed with some clever graphic flourishes
Usability:
Includes some incentive for intra-party betrayal

Glory Hole Mimic

Concept: “Regret incarnate”
Content:
No comment
Writing:
Standard stat block with special feature; dryly (but highly) comedic
Art/design:
Expressive, stylized title with readable text and an illustration just in case you’re not sure how it works; the pink obviously symbolizes true love
Usability:
Did no one ever warn you about putting things in places?

Mäinframe gLeech

Concept: “A Lattice-lurking, ICE-melting cortex hacker on steroids”
Content:
A cyberpunk meat-hacker class trapped in the analog Dying World
Writing:
Extremely creative; adds lots of character and humor
Art/design:
Colors, layouts, and designs seamlessly blend cyberpunk and Mörk Borg
Usability:
The l33t may slow reading, but it’s worth it.

…may also set itself as your desktop’s background

Maust

Concept: “… forever hiding in the dark, more rodent than a man.”
Content:
A demi-human hireling
Writing:
Includes some flavor text as well as stats, traits, specialties, and values
Art/design:
Nicely balanced layout with art suggestive of sentiment and violence

Designed as an additional outcast like those described in the core book

Mutt Errant

Concept: “Bound by an everlasting curse to collect all of the written knowledge, this damned dog of a man will ask for a tribute of three books or scrolls.”
Content:
A dog-knight with a passion for print—plus a beefy suit of armor, sword, and special
Writing:
A concise stat block and a pair of paragraphs detailing character and behavior
Art/design:
A proficient, clean layout with some really impressive art
Usability:
Mutt Errant may just chew on the books and scrolls instead of reading them, but either way, he’s coming back for more

Stitcherer (demo)

Concept: “A PDF-based monster generator module for the upcoming BEstitchARY”
Content:
Sticks halves of 2 animals together into 1 unusual monster
Writing:
Includes some clever flavor text along with standard stats
Art/design:
Great colors and well-crafted layouts

Captures the core book’s grim humor and tone
Art/design:
Strong Mörk Borg aesthetic; sets itself apart with blue that harkens back to the core rulebook
Usability:
Well laid out; available in single page and spread versions for convenience

The Galgenbeck Lawyers

Concept: “A pen is mightier than the sword and they have both.”
Content:
Young Johan, Old Man Pelle, and their scroll of brutally restrictive special abilities
Writing:
Very readable and usable, but good luck—you’ll be laughing too hard
Art/design:
Too many witty design choices to list, and I wouldn’t want to spoil the surprises anyway
Usability:
Definitely game breaking and potentially self-negating

The Horde from Beyond

Concept: “Those, who have ventured into the Endless Sea and returned, told the tales of anguish, chagrin, and disappointment. But not all were so fortunate. Some ships were thought lost forever. Until now.”

5 days of random labors and encounters on a ghost ship
Writing:
Generally grim in tone with dashes of verbal (and even mechanical) humor
Art/design:
Colors and images beautifully support the otherworldly background
Usability:
Minimal prep required (other than rolling 4:3)

The Loneliness of the Múrmaiden

Concept: “How the protagonists have learned that there is no power stronger than love”
Content:
A twisted archetypal comedy in 4 acts; emphasizes weirdness over grimness
Writing:
Presented as a script for stage; full of humor and clever wordplay
Art/design:
Makes powerful use of a limited palette of vivid colors in traditional page layouts and images

A fairly linear adventure; as a document, easy to read and use
