Variants

Dead Reign

Concept: “Ash falls upon a dying world, abandoned by dead gods. You wake alone, forsaken, and wander a place once familiar… To you, this ashen world was bequethed, this Dead Reign.”
Content: A new setting with 10 bleak locations to explore, 7 enemies to haunt the present, and many tables filled with forlorn reminders of the past.
Writing: Strong thematic elements depict a world that is already spent. A world past ending. An empty place waiting for the last ember to blow out.
Art/design: Desolate and eerie landscapes with haunted and sinister figures. Design elements reinforce a world that was left behind.
Usability: A melancholy font of inspiration, with writing that invites readers to wander their ashen world, and leave their own mark upon it. Available in English and Swedish.

Concept: “Vriprix the Mad Wizard bids the desperate, brave and foolish to venture into the ruins of Kergus. He seeks the forbidden psalm.”
Content:
A full, stand-alone 28mm wargame based on (and compatible with) Mörk Borg
Writing:
There’s a lot of it—which is necessary for a tactics game—but it’s straightforward and clear in its exposition
Art/design:
A balance of familiar graphic and typographic maneuvers balanced with the technical clarity and readability demanded by a more complex system
Usability:
A more methodical, strategically oriented game, but a good fit for fans of wargames and Mörk Borg

Forbidden Psalm: Last War

Concept: “The Great War, World War, War to End All Wars: the only true name it has is The Last War, for now there remain not enough people to fight another.”
Content: A 28mm miniature agnostic small-scale skirmish game set in the wastes of the Last War.
Writing: Tangible combat mechanics cut through the false justifications, the final plague, and the fog that remains to reveal the of true horrors of The Last War.
Art/design: Ragged illustrations full of the dull palette and subdued tension of the trenches. Official documents mix with marginalia in a found document style.
Usability: Standalone rules for solo, cooperative, and versus miniature engagements.

Letters of the Damned

Concept: “A supplement for Quill that immerses the player in the dark fantasy world of MÖRK BORG”
Content:
A letter-writing solo game
Writing:
Expressive but clear in its descriptive and instructional text
Art/design:
Includes some public domain illustrations and other visual elements for variety and appeal; text is presented efficiently and arranged appropriately according to density per page
Usability:
Requires Quill rules to play; could also be used as inspiration for, or a mini-game in, standard Mörk Borg

Lörd

Concept: “Build the family tree of a fictional ruling family.  Record the monstrosities they faced and the choices they made.”
Content:
A solo journaling game based on
Lineage and set in the courts of the Dying World
Writing:
Establishes the bleak tone intended for gameplay with lots of variety in the table results
Art/design:
Layouts vary from section to section for easier visual navigation when flipping/scrolling
Usability:
Linearly laid out for progress through each ruler’s lifespan; also a good source of adventure hooks and long-term plots for standard games

Minimal Borg

“An alternative take on the entire MÖRK BORG rules, with some alternative classes”

Mörk Borg Lite!

Concept: “A pretty not-good April Fools joke.”
Content:
A business card-size spoof of Mörk Borg
Writing:
There is only one rule: you die and the world ends
Art/design:
Condenses the aesthetic into an itty-bitty space
Usability:
In no way does this qualify as a real game

Mörk Maus

Concept: “This zine, although it looks super Mörk Borg, is not compatible with that metal game.”
Content:
The Mörk Borg lore, atmosphere, and aesthetic adapted as a nuclear disaster setting for the Mausritter RPG
Writing:
Equal parts entertaining, endearing, and horrifying
Art/design:
Each contributor captures and conveys the look and feel of Mörk Borg but with appropriate, frequently humorous twists
Usability:
I don’t know Mausritter’s rules, but this makes it look pretty user-friendly

MÖZRK BOZRG

“An adaptation of the setting and tone of MÖRK BORG to the ruleset of OZR”

Shadowrun (Earthdawn) Race Templates for Mork Borg
