Philip Reed

Anzhela and the Caged Skulls

Concept: “The woman cackles madly […] and drops the cages, drawing her sword and screaming with a mad rage.”

Writing:
Text heavy, but creates a vivid atmosphere and provides psychological depth to the antagonist, something not often found in Mörk Borg
Art/design:
Excellent, expressive depictions of the titular characters

Includes an alternative d6-based encounter-resolution mechanic; a bit more complex than some scenarios, but the additional moving parts make for an interesting and memorable scenario

Exactly what it should be

Calo’s Book of Monsters

Concept: “Many a scholar, after spending a day with the book, finds that sleep escapes them that night as the haunting vision of the many monsters described in the book consume their imagination.”

20 monsters as well as a region for them to inhabit and local rumors for PCs to overhear

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.”

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
Writing:
Some strange and gruesome remains; not for the faint of heart, but definitely for Mörk Borg

Conservative but effective

Deck of Evil Objects

Content:
A 15-card deck with 3 additional cards (2 for the Deck of Treasures and 1 for the Deck of Secrets)
Writing:
The descriptions will make you want to use these even though the mechanics will probably kill your character
Art/design:
Sets the tone well without overcrowding a small space
Usability:
Draw a card. Read the card. Repeat.

Deck of Secrets

Concept: “Use this deck during character creation […] to add background.”
Content:
36 violent, sordid, and bizarre selections to flesh out your characters’ personal histories
Writing:
Well-crafted to inspire players’ imaginations and add compelling depth to characters
Art/design:
Nice, macabre art on card backs, and textured backgrounds add some visual depth to each side
Usability:
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.”
Content:
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
Writing:
Visceral, vivid, and violent (obviously)
Art/design:
Overall nice design; use of vivid yellow skulls to emphasize severity is a solid, well-devised feature
Usability:
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.”
Content:
36 items with mechanics for incorporating the canonical Corpse Plundering Table
Writing:
Nice descriptions of items and enumeration of their  mechanics
Art/design:
Relatively conservative but effective
Usability:
Straightforward in itself, but requires some reference to the core rules

Fathomless Despair

Concept: “Death is the least of your concerns if you are foolish enough to visit this horrible and dark place. The air and soil are filled with the stench of undeath as a lingering evil makes its presence known to all who explore this desolate land.”

Writing: A historical account of the valley’s many ruins and follies, and a brief taxonomy of the undead they left behind. Intended to inspire not direct.
Art/design: Efficient grouping, color coding, and placement accommodate each aesthetic flourish. 
Usability: Can be folded to fit in your pocket. Designed to minimize flipping. Pre-record the creature stats to truly optimize your experience.

Stats and a hook for the race of kidnapping, meat-hungry krampi
