Concept: “100 different types of characters; names from the core book + nonsense names of my own choosing. What they know, where it is, what this feels to them, what they can offer in return.”
Content: A random NPC generator for when the PCs ignore the important people and fixate on that one dude
Writing: Concise (by necessity) without sacrificing notable detail and character
Art/design: Wrings maximal character out of a small number of graphic elements
Content: “31 random generators, monsters, items, and so forth made throughout the month of October 2023.”
Writing: A tortuous elaboration from its initial prompts, full of wit and wretchedness.
Art/design: Sketches, photo bashes, full-color illustrations, and doodles in a filthy day calendar format.
Usability: Most fun when printed on a sticky note calendar.
Concept: “Ere the world doth crumble and tis an errant tickle to know others shall suffer as you have.”
Content: A self-destructive fool fit for Mörk Borg; some elaborate and unpredictable abilities
Writing: Stylized but accessible
Art/design: Relatively minimal (not a bad thing)
Usability: A dictionary may be called for, but you’ll learn some new vocabulary
Content: A bog crawl and soundtrack filled with sludge, corpses, and brutality; also includes the Gilded Wolf character class
Writing: The prose resurrects the core book’s weird imagery and ominous tone; mechanics text is accessible and easy to use
Art/design: The Mörk Borg style we know and love, but left to putrefy in a swamp
Usability: Places three factions in explicit large-scale conflict, creating a complex backdrop for players to explore and GMs to exploit
Content: A filling 120-page harvest of human meat (and how to use it).
Writing: Sefl-indulgent self-injury, masticatory mutilation, and gratuitous gluttony.
Art/design: Sharp sketches, gruesome graffiti, and a not-inconsiderable quantity of red.
Usability: Organized and occasionally explicit body horror abounds. You have been warned.
Content: A chivalric knight in service to the Blood Countess; creative trait tables
Writing: Captures and conveys the affect of an infatuated courtier
Art/design: Good use of color to add emphasis and direct focus; modest by effective typographic choices
Usability: Class features are more complex than baseline but perfectly manageable
Content: 3-in-1 mini-classes adapting high fantasy races
Writing: Lives up to the concept; strong characterization
Art/design: Typographic and color choices organize content and add emphasis
Usability: A thematically fitting way to incorporate traditional RPG races
Content: “Classes, items, companions, monsters and encounters created by sacrilegious mind.”
Writing: A variety of styles, all appropriate to their content
Art/design: Worth downloading just to check out the range of art and layouts
Usability: Complexity varies by entry but consistently easy to use
Content: Grim even by Mörk Borg standards; tables for name and conflict
Writing: Visceral and evocative descriptions; includes additional background tables
Art/design: Effective use of typefaces and color to direct attention
Usability: Advances by Getting Better and as Miseries accumulate
