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.

Abominable Suturer

“And so, in a world full of monsters, you’ve created one more.”


Concept: “You find a well equipped corpse along the side of the road. It has no face. When you examine it more closely it breathes to you ‘don't pretend that I'm not alive’... ‘Find the stone circle, stop the Baphomets before they kill us all’”
Content: A phantom limb crawl.
Writing: A story-driven dungeon crawl of possession, exorcism, maggots, entrails, rituals, and blood.
Art/design: Grisly isometric map enshrined in vinyl, gruesome cover, and a track listing of an adventure layout.
Usability: Easy to read, simple to navigate, trivial to compel your scvm with a good old-fashioned possession. 

D is for Dungeon

Concept: “This Mork Borg Compatible alphabet book is both a functioning children's book (it's been Beta tested by my own sordid progeny) and a collection of useful randomizers.”
“1 Dungeon, 1 Character Class, 1 Magic Omnoculous, 23 Tables to roll on, 26 Flies (or more), 489 Monsters and Beasts to fight, and 1 Voracious Vegetable”
Maintains a very Mörk Borg tone while still being suitable for children (though they may need some help with the bigger words)
Uses a variety of visual styles and has a Mörk Borg aesthetic but avoids subject matter that may upset young readers
Includes a search-and-find game as well as serving as an alphabet book and a MÖRK BORG 

Duncan Hall’s Mörktober 2023 – 31 Tables & Trivilities

Concept: Duncan Hall’s Little Mörktober Calendar of Horrors.
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. 

Forbidden Psalm Character Cards

Concept: “Tiny MÖRK BORG character sheets for use in Forbidden Psalm”  
Content: Two pages of 8 compact character sheets with a little warband log.
Writing: Just the basics. With lots of room to write.
Art/Design: Memorable icons provide a shorthand for the most commonly modified stats—stylish and functional design.
Usability: “(although I've used them for MÖRK BORG as well)” 

Grinding the MMORKG

Concept: “Want to use Mork Borg modules as a virtual reality simulation in your Cy_Borg game? Or to give your Mork Borg players a taste of Cy?”
Content: Five interconnected dungeons bridging the gap between Mörk and Cy, rules for scvm conversion, sweet from rigs, and some sim-addicted punk.
Writing: A fluid and in-depth investigation that focuses on the politics of Cy and humorously subverts the core conceit of Mörk Borg.
Art/design: Deftly blends the visual style of both source material.
Usability: A well reference and stylized adventure text with self contained rules that are partitioned for easy reference.

Mörk Borg/OSR Mega-Dungeon

11 contributors
Concept: “While the level themes may not be united, we are united in our end goal: to generate financial support for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Content: A Monstrous Mörk Borg Megadungeon – For Suicide Prevention.
Writing: A miserable menagerie of authors and styles.
Art/design: Surreal amalgamations of subject and design.
Usability: Each level is distinct. Your utility may vary. 

Mörkédex: Bile Yellow

Concept: “You’ll have to forgive me, but I’ve forgotten, what was your name again? I’m Professor Locust, but most people call me the Mörkémon professor.” 
Content: That’s right, it’s that crossover. With d66 Mörkémon, two classes, eight “dungeons” and the city of Caput Mortem.
Writing: A childhood franchise with all the puns and references you’ve come to enjoy, made lovingly miserable.
Art/design: A flexible, consistent, and intuitive design that guides the reader through the world of Mörkémon.
Usability: A second edition of Professor Locust’s Mörkédex. 

Nacnudllah’s Misery’s Keep

Concept: “an independent production by Duncan Hall… hastening the final Misery” 
Content: A miserable keep-crawl, redecorated, again.
Writing: A dastardly villain, a towering castle, treasure to steal, and dolls… 
Art/design: Subtle and considered tri-fold that makes excellent use of angle, tone, and profile. Includes a critical visual reinterpretation of “undead doll”.
Usability: Stylized, decorated, legible, and printable.

Nvrsery of the Changeling

Concept: “A spooky nursery that can stand alone (ish) or be added to any Mork Borg dungeon, especially the MORK MEGADUNGEON.”
Content: Not your mama’s nvrsery (I hope).
Writing: A precious story of big mama and her precious little one, and the broken bodies left in their wake.
Art/design: Baby-proofed layout in black, white, and yellow. Complete with a picture of the precious little one and the layout of their humble home.

Professor Locust’s Mörkédex

“Includes D66 fully illustrated monsters (organized into 6 biomes) to catch, train, and battle.  It also includes a Class, several NPCs, adventure hooks, a map, a printable sheet for keeping track of your Mörkémon, and more!”

Seven Hells and a Dead Paradise

Concept: “in this book you will find Seven Hells to inflict upon your players, and one Dead Paradise. Tie them all together with a Hellish table-crawl, the Eightfold Crypt of the King Orzog”
Content: Seven hells, a lost paradise, a tormented class, body parts, and a dread king’s crypt.
Writing: The history and cosmos of dead gods conveyed in 13 spreads worth of tables and dungeon.
Art/design: Excellent use of public domain imagery as inspiration for the various locals. Tortured sketches of divine punishment.
Usability: Enough material here to flesh out many settings. With an index to use them piecemeal or whole. 

What Lurks in the Tall Grass?

“A table of D6 Mörkémon to get you started and simple rules for how to catch them”
