30 Days of Mörk Borg Adventure Chapbook vol. 1

Content warning: naked antics, poo monsters, and BEAR-THING

A Waning Light

“To the south, and to the west, to the place where land becomes liquid and oozes into the Endless Sea. Far beyond Targ-Dungel and the festering swamps of the Rotlands lies Fattvëlland, the Great Slick. 

This, they say, is where the giants died. This oil is their blood, their liquid bones, their final gift to the land – a gift taken by darkness, now. The waning light of the cowering sun dares not shine here. Those who bring flames find themselves burning as stars, hot and bright and all too brief, returned to smoke and ash from whence everything came.”
Content: An oil-slicked, guttering, forgotten lantern crawl. With two suffocating dungeons, petroleum-rich expanses, demented myths, and many muddled secrets.
Writing: A melancholy-soaked Molotov, light on memory, heavy with misery. Ready to ignite.
Art/design: Moisture-stained maps, brooding and heavily manipulated photographs, and dark illustrations over an ironclad layout.
Usability: Strong hierarchy and clean legible text. The accompanying album drones in perfect accompaniment. 

Abyss of Hallucinations

“Things are exactly what they seem, yet nothing seems to be what it is. What whimsy worms its way into the warped underpinnings of knowledge?”

Album Crawl

19 contributors
Concept: “A collection of deafening dungeons and auditory misadventures for MÖRK BORG.”
22 music-inspired settings and scenarios; many intriguing rules and foes; alternate Miseries; a whole spread of punishments for unruly dice
Variously fascinating and horrifying
Widely variegated but all nicely done
A couple atypical layouts that reward a bit of scrutiny and patience

Ashes of Käsedorf

Concept: “You crawl from the ruins of Käsedorf with a grudge... Go now, while you still have the strength to make a difference.” 
Content: A beast hunting, rubble looting, post-battle ruin crawl.
Writing: A classic silver-chasing hexcrawl with a surprising level of motivation and intrigue.
Art/design: Vibrantly recolored and overlaid prints produce an impressionistic collage.
Usability: Organized into rough narrative sections to aid in reference during play. 

Bone Heart Crusaders

“Heeding the call of Adalbert the Warhawk, a host assembled. Thousands of starving soldiers took up sword, flail, cross, and shield. Fight for life, fight to the death.”

Cold Dead Fingers

Concept:  “Mere days ago a terrible thunder shook Kergüs as a colossal stone plummeted through the clouds and into the frozen surface of the lake.” 
Content: A mist-shrouded, gold-prospecting, frozen lake crawl.
Writing: A instructive and elegant hex crawl that rewards exploration consistently with meaningful choice. 
Art/design: A single column, segmented plaintext layout, with color coatings and established GM advice.
Usability: Currently in prototype, expect legibility to go down as style goes up.

Crossing the High Fens

Concept: “A treacherous region, unrelenting weather, and creatures out to get you. This not the place you want to be, but it is the place you need to cross to get there.”
A hazardous hexcrawl packed with locations, encounters, and mechanics for weather and hypothermia
Concise and to the point (by necessity, since it puts a lot of content into only a few pages)
Graphics (particularly page borders) add a sense of character and place
Well organized, typographically conservative and easy to read

Curic’s Cursed Chapbook

“In the days of sunlight, before nightmares blackened the skies and the cursed people claimed the world, there was a traveler by the name of Lukas Curic who enjoyed sharing stories with those he met in the towns and villages of the world.”

Curse of the Rotting Sun

“They say Father Sun left this world years ago, but that is untrue. He descended from the sky and plunged into the earth. Somewhere in Wästland Sun is alive and slowly rotting away.”


Concept: “This hexcrawl is meant to be used with The Death Church of Morkath” [30 Days of MÖRK BORG]

Alternatively supernatural, apocalyptic, and humorous; includes a brief overview of the scenario’s folkloric and real-world inspirations
