Content: A mystery in a haunted house style asylum, complete with sanity mechanics.
Writing: A transportation of cinematic haunted asylum horror to Mörk Borg.

Sepulchre of the Swamp Witch

Concept: “In a hidden repository deep in the Slithering Swamp is a witch's altar of glyph-covered roots. They say it can fulfill any wish.”

A serpentine sepulchre you’ll wish you never entered.

A two-for-one adventure in two modes: sedate & completely stoned.

The Lost Theater

Concept: “it looks like you have the main role in the new play… It will be a gruesome story tonight… The third bell has already rung, take your seat and enjoy the show…”
Content: A theater dungeon in three acts.
Writing: The skeleton of a script to allows for easy improvisation anchored in concise descriptions of actors and events.

The Raining Caves

Concept: "As the world grows dark with Nechrubel’s influence... they farm the mushrooms, listen to the messages they give them, and wait." 
Content: A slick cavern complex full of apostates, visions, monsters, and spores.
Writing: Encounter structure that builds toward the insidious influence of the fungi and the waters on the cultists.
Art/design: Illustrations highlight a traditional text. Variety in typeface throughout. The contrast in type color creates visual breaks between room descriptions. 
Usability: Background, Map, Encounter, and NPC sections blocked. Adventure is best referenced in print. 

The Temple of the Scattered God

Concept: “The god has fallen from the sky. Its giant body scattered. Some parts have been recovered and saved by the Kultists. Meet his brain, one eye, one foot, one hand and maybe more body parts in the underground temple!”
Content: A god crawl divided into parts.
Writing: Adaptive and dynamic encounter design make for more dynamic combat encounters.
Art/design: Disturbingly detailed map by Brian Yaksha, clear use of color to indicate rooms and features of interest, mini-map navigation, and stats incorporated into room description text.
Usability: OSR style abbreviations require some minor translations for Mörk Borg. 

Valravn

Vanity Bleeder

Concept: “Slick with ichor and desire, the dire hostess, The Golden Masked Miraculous, sits alone atop the ruins of her father's cult. All heirs have been murdered: any drop of blood in the vein, and the sickly bell will whine again.”
Content: A glamorous/decrepit manor crawl full of hospitality/horror.
Writing: Understated and effective horror which carefully unravels and presents itself across both the black/white pages.
Art/design: A duality of black/white denotes the influence of Verhu’s Blind on the perceptions of the inspired. Alterations and reversals of associated imagery enhance the central theme.
Usability: Redundancy and parallel between the black/white versions of each spread allow for ease of reference regardless of your scvm’s sobriety during the adventure. 

You Don’t Yank on the Spine of God

Concept: “An album crawl inspired by Monster Magnet's Spine of God. Of course, it'll be sex & drugs ridden. Uh, and monsters. Ugly ones.”
