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.”
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.
Consistent use of symbolism and color for quick visual reference of card types and stats. Characterful illustrations and public domain art.
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.

Core Reference Cards - Ways to Carry

Concept: “Little envelopes for you and your players to carry the cards you collect around with you.”
Content: Tarot-sized envelopes for your reference cards.
Writing: Storage equipment reference cards text included on each envelope.
Art/design: Clever re-contextualization of the Wagon, Sack, and Backpack reference cards.
Usability: Included instructions and illustrative indexes assist assembly.

Creatures Feature Cards

Concept: “A new monster for your Mork Borg game!” 
Content: A series of A5 creature cards with stats, print tokens, and VTT icons.
Writing: Stats, abilities, lore, adventure seeds, and loot on each card. 
Art/design: Detailed and distressing monster concept illustrations in a variety of bold colors and styles.
Usability: A self-contained monster card to easily drop into your game. 

Cults of Galgenbeck

Concept: “It’s the end times, but that doesn’t mean you have to lie down and die! Get your head in the game.” 
Content: A 2-4 player hybrid dice/card game of fanatical cult leadership and desperate political machinations.
Writing: A stylistic delivery of mechanics that encourages the kind of foul play that cult leadership entails. 
Art/design: A fully distressed tri-fold pamphlet design with simple, and dramatic white text on a black background.
Usability: It will kill your printer, but it might just be worth it. 

Deck of Consumption

Concept: “Use a deck of mundane cards to easily bring forth time’s suffering: hungering stomaches, extinguished lanterns, and wandering monsters.”
Content: Rules to measure time, light, and suffering—with a deck of cards.
Writing: Clear and flexible rules for time management. Alongside explanations of their consequences/benefits.
Art/design: A surprisingly content dead king presides over the whole presentation.
Usability: Requires a deck of playing cards. 

Deck of Corpses

Concept: “A deck of 36 corpses the GM may turn to whenever the PCs stumble across yet another dead body.”
A heap of bodies, some of whom also have loot
Some strange and gruesome remains; not for the faint of heart, but definitely for Mörk Borg
Conservative but effective
Includes a unique mechanic involving the official Corpse Plundering table and clock time

Deck of Corpses 2

Concept: “Why are there so many bodies in this dungeon???”
Content: 36 new corpses on cards for your scvm.
Writing: An entertaining encounter for every corpse. As it should be.
Art/design: Functional and consistent.
Usability: Fully compatible with Deck of Corpses 1. 

Deck of Evil Objects

Concept: “Use this deck when you, the GM, wish to add a random object of evil to the campaign.”
A 15-card deck with 3 additional cards (2 for the Deck of Treasures and 1 for the Deck of Secrets)
The descriptions will make you want to use these even though the mechanics will probably kill your character
Sets the tone well without overcrowding a small space
Draw a card. Read the card. Repeat.

Deck of Secrets

Concept: “Use this deck during character creation […] to add background.”
36 violent, sordid, and bizarre selections to flesh out your characters’ personal histories
Well-crafted to inspire players’ imaginations and add compelling depth to characters
Nice, macabre art on card backs, and textured backgrounds add some visual depth to each side
Just draw and then despair

Deck of Terribly Broken Bodies

Concept: “Instead of rolling a d4 and checking the table in the core rules, draw a single card from this deck whenever a PC reaches zero HP.”
38 severe injuries at 4 levels of severity (correlating to the 4 results on the Broken table in the core rules) with different results for different damage types
Visceral, vivid, and violent (obviously)
Overall nice design; use of vivid yellow skulls to emphasize severity is a solid, well-devised feature
Very straightforward so you can focus on suffering from the wound instead of deciphering it

Deck of Treasures

Concept: “If you need a random treasure, draw one card and roll a single six-sided die.”
36 items with mechanics for incorporating the canonical Corpse Plundering Table
Nice descriptions of items and enumeration of their  mechanics
Relatively conservative but effective
Straightforward in itself, but requires some reference to the core rules

Dungeoneer's Black Book

Concept: “Welcome to the Dungeoneer's Black Book, a collection of boggy holes and haunted cellars. No evening shall pass without the gruesome, ultimately inevitable death of a beloved character.”
Content: 16 dungeons in a disturbing array of contents and formats
Writing: A variety of adventures await you with their own unique styles. The only guarantee is misery.
Art/design: A engrossing (sometimes gross) exploration of dungeon layout and illustration.
Usability: With a variety of design formats, make sure to read your selected dungeon before the session.

Escape the Dullahan

Concept: “When the dark rider calls, you have two choices: flee, or join the flight of the damned.”
A deck-based randomized adventure; a creative concept and well executed
Clean, atmospheric writing with sharp imagery
Excellent illustrations and layouts
Well-organized main sheet, and encounter stats on each card, and available in multiple formats to suit printing preferences

Mörk Borg Compatible Core Reference Cards

Concept: “Do you like TTRPGs? Do you enjoy reference cards filled with items, magical scrolls, beasts, abilities, lore, advice, and hundreds of unique custom illustrations?”
Content: 166 double-sided, tarot-sized reference cards.
Writing: Witty quotes and commentary add texture to each referenced item.
Art/design: Filthy ink splattered across a consistent structure that aids card reference.
Usability: Provided with instructions for print & play for the digital edition. 

Now That’s What I Call Mörk Borg

Concept: “Inspired by the 1983 U.K. release Now That's What I Call Music or Now 1.”
A card set that expands core Mörk Borg components (bad habits, scrolls, hirelings, etc.) … but based on pop music
Appropriately concise (since it has to fit on a card alongside the art) but still characterful
Predominantly yellow and pink on black in a unique adaptation of Nohr’s style
