tavern/inn

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

Böwhoss’ handbook: notes on internal ignition

Concept: “In this volume you will find the most noteworthy, dangerous and strange encounters of my recent voyages.”
Content:
A variety of NPCs, monsters, and other hazards as well as a new scroll, a malevolent mushroom, an optional Misery-related madness, a relatively benign tavern, and a much less benign inn
Writing:
The first-person POV and travelogue style have a folksy and often irreverent tone
Art/design:
Typefaces, engravings, and paintings reinforce the concept while other graphic elements lend some insidious and esoteric atmosphere
Usability:
Includes player-facing handouts that include lore but no mechanics or GM-specific information

Box of Shadows

Concept: “The dry cracked earth of the city now spews a scentless dark black fog. … Rumors of this substance taking form and hunting down those that travel without a lamp or torch have become ever more prevalent.”
Content:
A sprawling sandbox-style adventure set amidst a sinister miasma emerging in Grift
Writing:
Incorporates copious descriptions, in-game documents, and random tables to add flavor to play; also includes numerous monsters, NPCs, and items
Art/design:
Incorporates original and found art into exuberant designs and diverse layouts
Usability:
Includes copious reference sheets, handouts, and topic-specific indices for GMs and players to use during play; GM-eyes-only material is segregated to facilitate more exciting solo play

Les Miseredibles

Concept: “Rules for intoxication and carousing, tables for rolling up a tavern, and menus for each of the major regions”
Content:
Includes tavern names, characteristics, patrons, and fare (with mechanics for intoxication)
Writing:
A balanced mix of grim humor and humorous grimness
Art/design:
Fairly subdued use of color but diverse visual elements and typefaces add character and facilitate navigation
Usability:
Potentially profitable or disastrous for PCs; always entertaining for the GM

Mörk Borg Cult: Feretory

15 contributors
Concept: “A collection of tables, monsters, items, classes, rules and ideas”
Content:
Includes a random monster generator, rules for distance travel and subsistence, The Death Ziggurat and Goblin Grinder adventures, rosters of mundane and profane gear, the Grey Galth Inn setting, a gambling minigame, the Black Salt environmental hazard, new character classes (Cursed Skinwalker, Pale One, Dead God’s Prophet, Forlorn Philosopher), and new Powers
Writing:
Mörk Borg imagery and tone in wide a variety of styles
Art/design:
Matches content to myriad layout and design strategies
Usability:
The mechanical and expository elegance you expect from Mörk Borg; the monster generator particularly uses dice in a clever way 

The Cook at the Crossroads

Concept: “The Inn at the Crossroads … Nothing bad ever happened here. Or did it?”
Content:
An insidious secret at an unassuming inn
Writing:
Predominantly devoted to setting the scene for roleplaying
Art/design:
Text-focused and more traditional than many other third-party publications
Usability:
Linear; some redundancy eliminates page flipping

The Romvs Inn

Concept: “Player characters can […] indulge in the most important aspect of RPGs – roleplaying their characters.”
Content:
A humorous but still extremely lethal anti-adventure
Writing:
Entertaining and establishes the desired, comedic tone
Art/design:
Columns for exposition and proximal layout for the setting both adapt the MB aesthetic to good effect
Usability:
Have you tried those scrambl'd æggs? To die for.
