30 Days of Mörk Borg Adventure Chapbook vol. 2: On the Island of Dying Gods

“This book expands the one-page, one-shots taken from my digital offering 30 Days of MÖRK BORG and is the second volume in a planned series of ten. For this volume, we focused on creating three distinct modules within a larger keyed setting, but there’s still plenty of room for improvisation and substitution at your table.”

500 Paces

6 contributors
Concept: “You have to press forward...up to the keep, up to salvation. Up the 500 Paces.”
Content:
A postmortem adventure from battlefield to keep and beyond
Writing:
Provides copious descriptions of locations and events
Art/design:
A more traditional, conservative layout with discrete body text and illustrations
Usability:
Includes bulleted summaries of each section for easy reference during play

7:7 - A Dying Card Game

Concept: “Well, it’s like a Living Card Game, but it’s up to all of you to keep it shambling on in a foetid undead state. Its brains have now been splattered gruesomely across the Mӧrk Borg community, decentralized, disaggregated, dismembered, ready to be resurrected at any time through the BLACK MAGIC of the Third Party License.”
Content:
A Print and Play Card Game with an Open License.
Writing: Flexible rules account for 3 modes of play. With delightfully characterized (and miserable) scvm.
Art/design:
Consistent use of symbolism and color for quick visual reference of card types and stats. Characterful illustrations and public domain art.
Usability:
Usable for 1v1, solo play, or as a prompt for randomized Mörk Borg adventures. Has a flexibility license so you can release your own expansions.

Abyss of Hallucinations

“Things are exactly what they seem, yet nothing seems to be what it is. What whimsy worms its way into the warped underpinnings of knowledge?”

A Good, Old-Fashioned Murder Dungeon

Concept: The title is fairly on-the-nose
Content:
10 rooms of party-killing peril
Writing:
A balance of ambience and formal content
Art/design:
The map is homey in a horrible kind of way; additional graphic design is gritty and fierce
Usability:
Numbering and proximal layout makes for straightforward navigation and reference

An Ageless, Woodless Place

Concept: “A microsetting for a romp in a valley lost to memory and giant reptiles.”
Content:
A primeval playground for scvm to die in
Writing:
Overviews the setting and covers random finds, weather, landmarks, and monsters
Art/design:
Efficiently organized into sections and vibrantly stylized
Usability:
Doesn’t have a narrative arc, but players will surely find ways to keep themselves amused; a good place to strand characters or for them to pass through while traveling

Ancient Skin

Concept: “One of you dregs is plagued with a maddening itch and not only that – the skin is starting to rot. They say Mausoleum Knutha, on the edge of the graveyard Graven-Tosk, holds the only known cure.”
Content:
A complex and variable (not to mention twisted) crawl through Sarkash
Writing:
Efficient but vivid descriptions of locations and inhabitants punctuated by grim wit
Art/design:
Marvelous maps; type design helps map the connections amongst locations and items
Usability:
Provides checkboxes to track variables (but if you mark this pamphlet, you’re a heathen and you deserve whatever misery befalls you)
*Backer reward for original Kickstarter campaign; special thanks to Johan for providing a copy of this rare little gem

Anzhela and the Caged Skulls

Concept: “The woman cackles madly […] and drops the cages, drawing her sword and screaming with a mad rage.”
Content: English breakfast with a side of TPK; running will only make you die faster
Writing:
Text heavy, but creates a vivid atmosphere and provides psychological depth to the antagonist, something not often found in Mörk Borg
Art/design:
Excellent, expressive depictions of the titular characters
Usability:
Includes an alternative d6-based encounter-resolution mechanic; a bit more complex than some scenarios, but the additional moving parts make for an interesting and memorable scenario

A Polearm to Plunge into Someone Rotten

Concept: “Six polearms charged with magical energy to find hidden in the darkest crypt or fortress.”
Content:
An assortment of macabre and arcane weapons
Writing:
Includes compelling lore and mechanics for each polearm
Art/design:
Descriptions are distinct and proximal to their respective illustrations, which are full of character and detail
Usability:
Rather powerful by Mörk Borg base standards, but not without hazards and drawbacks

A (sometimes) Spiked Flail to the Face

Concept: “Six magical/cursed flails to discover in the deepest bog or dungeon.”
Content: A set of unique and creative weapons, most of which are lethal to target and wielder alike
Writing: Descriptive, compelling, and occasionally humorous
Art/design: Flails are depicted in silhouette, giving the reader’s imagination opportunity to fill in the gaps
Usability: Avoid contact with eyes and face

*Published prior to release of the formal third-party license

A Wizard’s Dying Wish

Concept: “Brauer possesses enough strength to make one final request. Will the party take action to fulfill the wizard’s dying wish?”
Content:
A one-room encounter with a cool monster twist and some nasty aftermath possibilities
Writing:
Devoted mostly to describing the situation and setting, but provides the GM with inspiration and some flexibility
Art/design:
Keeps the pamphlet visually interesting without being obtrusive
Usability:
Fold it twice and you’re ready to go

A Wizard's Dying Wish and Other Tales

Concept: “A collection of four adventures and five encounter hooks, all created for those gamemasters in need of new ideas to throw at the adventurers.”
Content: A compilation of Philip Reeds pamphlet adventures in a hardcover A5.
Writing: A thick and sturdy scaffold of personalities and events to entertain or eradicate your scvm.
Art/design: Expressive depictions of titular characters and artifacts, easy to navigate maps when provided.
Usability: Encounters can easily be dropped in independently but are thematically consistent for a longer campaign.
