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.”

Basilica of the False Prophet

Concept: “THEM. A lunatic, convinced he is the one true, basilisk. Skulking in an abandoned church on the far side of the western mountain range, he rants and plots against HE and SHE.”
Content: A desperate descent. An unexpected plunge. A shattered hope?
Writing: Miserable and descriptive encounters, backed by elegant mechanics, make a narrative descent into madness.

A detailed and malicious dungeon clearly inspired by (but not derivative of) some classic Mörk Borg crawls
Writing:
Clear with plenty of attention to nuance
Art/design:
Typographical choices highlight items of note in each room; stat blocks at the bottom of page for easy reference
