Nell Azathoth Tull

Beast from the Lightless Depths

“Long ago your kind had formed an ancient peace treaty with those from the lightless depths vowing never to step foot in each other's domain again. One such behemoth, the Beast, has now broken this treaty.”

Carnivorous Flora

Concept: “Happy Early Equinox, I got you some flowers!”
Content: These flowers take the concept of edible arrangement to a new level.
Writing: Much less confusing than I feel around this alluring plant.
Art/design: Like a carnivorous plant sent me a postcard.
Usability: Somewhere between murderous chia pet and edible arrangement. 

FÖLK-LORE: Rendezvous & Romps

36 contributors
Concept: “What happens when the lore of our world collides with the Dying World of MÖRK BORG?”
The second volume of collected FÖLK-LORE Jam entries
Varies by author, see individual entries under the FÖLK-LORE Jam tag
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?

Frozen Kingdom of the Furnace Mizer

“Climb up to the snow buried Kingdom of the Furnace Mizer where the strange smoke billows out from forgotten steeples.”

Keep of the Crow Witch

“In the Village of Welltig, built atop the ruined Easod Keep, lives the Crow Witch in her tall Aviary swirling with crows.”

Lilith's Biblia Blasphemia

Concept: “Inspired by Nurse With Wound's album Soliloquy for Lilith”
Content: “Six otherworldly abominable creatures to kill and maim your player's characters”
Stat blocks and copious descriptive text for entries
Features full-page illustrations for each
Special abilities are a bit more elaborate than Mörk Borg’s baseline

Martolea, Tuesday’s Demon

Concept: “Tuesday’s Demon rambles into desolate villages from its den high in the mountains only after a grisly tragedy has occurred on a Tuesday.”
A bizarre, subversive, brutal beast and  a simmering, horror-themed investigation spanning a few days in a seemingly quiet town
Includes a standard stat block as well as additional attributes and an overview of the monster’s MO; the adventure balances subtle tension and intrigue with moments of overt violence and gore
  Graphic design aids in navigating the adventure; illustrations add lots of creepy visual character
  Includes a town map and an appendix of character sketches for quick reference

Slaughterhouse Citadel

Concept: “Inspired by Death's album Scream Bloody Gore”
Includes 11 rooms, 10  tables for room clutter and wandering monsters (just in case the other hazards and inhabitants weren’t lethal enough)
Descriptions of rooms and inhabitants are filled with grim, gritty, multi-sensory imagery
Features loads of original art; palette is dominated by red and muted yellow, creating a gory and noxious ambience
Incorporates high-level internal links in ToC and at the bottom of pages for fast navigation; random monster table includes page references for print-inclined GMs

The Golden Razor Syndicate

“Anonymous ‘assassins’ privileged to be of noble birth they wrongly believe their selfish arrogant founder is the one true king”

The King of Sweet Death

Concept: “Grizzly skeletons fluidly dance ballet while spinning their scythes and hacking away chunks of themselves.”
A violent tornado of scythes and meat
Provides lore and a vivid description of the creature in action; special attack and defense rules are concise but clear
Single column of text lets the figure and apocalyptic scenery dominate the page

The Xorb

Concept: “Repulsive though they may be, these sage like blasphemies are as intelligent as any woman, and wiser than any man.”
A pair of strange creations, hinged and bottled
Contains some lore but mostly devoted to stats and effects of successful attacks against them
Layout regulates text to a half-frame, putting focus on the illustrations of these bio-mechanical constructs against chromatically dead landscapes and cataclysmic skies
More complex than some monsters, but creates a more granular combat experience
