A Dead God’s Stronghold

6 thematic hazards and stats for some pretty brutal basilisks
Writing:
Clear descriptions with a healthy dose of humor

Can be used as an overlay for another dungeon to add extra character and lethality

Awful Pets

Content:
8 basilisk friends for you to take home (or to a fun dungeon)
Writing:
A veritable blender of sarcasm, irony, and overt humor—a fun read

Generate your own basilisk in only 3 rolls

Böeser

6 contributors
Concept: “Children keep disappearing in the forest. But no one dares to visit the abandoned ruin, which juts out of a clearing like a rotten tooth. Whoever crosses the threshold is confronted with a force that scares even the Inquisition. Everything is alive.”
Content: A basilisk-bonding, child-abducting, palace of a flesh crawl.
Writing: A full-bodied blend of humor and horror that spares no raw material.
Art/design: A well-built manor of an adventure design, with tormented sketches, and fleshy full-color illustrations.
Usability: Easily referenced adventure design. A follow-up to Den of Disarray. 

Children of SHE

Concept: “A bitter army of basilisk children has formed and is marching from the Valley of the Unfortunate Undead.”
Content:
A pair of complementary monsters and a table of demands
Writing:
Creative with a dark tone punctuated by random weird humor
Art/design:
A solid adaptation of the Mörk Borg aesthetic and style
Usability:
The Dying Land needs more basilisks

Holy Artifacts of the Sacred Tragedies

Concept: “The powers and locations of artifacts made from the remains of the Sacred Tragedies... that gives insight into the Order of Her Devoted Midwives sect”
Content: Three single-sheet pamphlet adventures, and one on a new sect of the One Trve Faith.
Writing: A plausibly disturbing take on Basilisk worship which ties the adventures together into a larger optional campaign.
Art/design: A consistent palette makes for a cohesive collection, while exploration of contrast differentiates each pamphlet.
Usability: Well designed for use as a physical prop at the table. Get them in print if you can. 

Sacrifice Before Sunrise

Concept: “A plan to dethrone King Fathmu IX by replacing him with the grotesque child-god is mere days from success.”
Content: Political assassination by ritual god-child sacrifice.
Writing: A surprising amount of depth for a tiny, burned village and the chase for an infant god.
Art/design: Divine blend of color, artful illustration, and navigable sidebar column layout.
Usability: Easier to use than murdering a god-baby. 

Sir Shite

Concept: “Any water Sir Shite and his mout rests to drink from become riddled with toxic bacteria.”
Content:
A basilisk-riding, infection-spreading Borgonaut
Writing:
Concise and to the point; includes separate stats for rider and mount
Art/design:
Color adds some variety to the document and the contrast between collage elements creates some visual humor
Usability:
High-damage attacks and chance of infection make this a particularly challenging set of foes

Somnolevolence

Concept: “Those who suffer these Miseries and perish with them shall be reborn too. Suffer with them, in everlasting Misery.”
Content: A dead basilisks’ dreamcrawl.
Writing: A tortured text with misery lying just below the surface. A dying world dress rehearsal, complete with psalms.
Art/design: Strong cover illustration and design elements support a tortured narrative. 
Usability: Clear rules pamphlet with a self-contained map. Available in full color, print-friendly, and digital formats. 

The Crypt of the Heretical Botanist Margar Veit

Concept: “Denounced by the Church for HERESY, MARGAR was hunted by the inquisition, but never found. Until, perhaps, now.”
Content: This pamphlet dungeon leads deep to the loamy soil of an unholy botanist's crypt.
Writing: The lore planted in each encounter sheds light on the extent of Veit’s heretical horticultural experiments. 
Art/design: Easy to reference in all three versions. Clear isometric map with a morbid botanical flourish.
Usability: Pamphlets available in print-friendly and full color versions. With a digital version for phone/tablet reference. Suitable as a cold open, requires a forest to begin the adventure as written. 
 

The Travelling Cigar Cart of the Spurious Basilisk

Concept: “A relatively friendly cigar selling npc(s) and their cigars which may or may not have some secret magical effects”
Content:
A more lighthearted encounter with lots of potential for short- and long-term hijinks
Writing:
Full of character and entertaining to read and interpret for play
Art/design:
Diverse typography and patchwork layout creates a dynamic (but still readable) gestalt
Usability:
This product contains nicotine.

Two-Faced Assilisk

Concept: “Birthed from 𝕳𝕰𝕽 anus. Cast into the public toilets of Bergen Chrypt. Patron of paladins and other assholier-than-thou antagonists.”
Content:
An alternative demi-basilisk
Writing:
Provides parodic lore and tables of demands and consequences for not meeting those demands
Art/design:
Components visually delineated on discrete scraps of paper; gratuitous basilisk butthole
Usability:
Don’t

Verhu Wants

Concept: “If you don't meet the basilisk's demands, you will die! Survive somehow within 666 seconds!”
Content: A cursed amulet, and a (probably) fatal 666-second errand. 
Writing: Clever use of The Basilisks Demand table as a mini-game. With helpful descriptions of the options a scvm could take to avoid almost certain death.
Art/design: An amusingly horrifying sketch of a disappointed (and hungry) basilisk.
Usability: A short solo adventure or introduction to Mörk Borg.
