Some mechanics, but generally devoted to broadly establishing scenarios; peppered with cultural and gaming references

30 Days of Mörk Borg Adventure Chapbook vol. 1

Content:
3 self-contained adventures
Writing:
Alternately uses descriptive prose and tables to suit each adventure’s content
Art/design: Presents each adventure in a distinct style to suit its character and structure
Usability:
Content warning: naked antics, poo monsters, and BEAR-THING

30 Days of Mörk Borg Adventure Chapbook vol. 2: On the Island of Dying Gods

“This book expands the one-page, one-shots taken from my digital offering 30 Days of MÖRK BORG and is the second volume in a planned series of ten. For this volume, we focused on creating three distinct modules within a larger keyed setting, but there’s still plenty of room for improvisation and substitution at your table.”

30 Days of MÖRK BORG Adventure Chapbook Volume 3:3 Churches

Concept:  
“The heretics rise...
  
The Death Church of Wokath 
Blessed are the dead, for they shall inherit all! 

The Dismal Church of Nagla 
We forge our tradition in the spirit of our ancestors! 

The Flayed Church 
We bow to that which crawls!

Content: Three heretical religions along with their followers, artifacts, seats of power, and teachings.
Writing: Three faiths enshrined in text. With histories and doctrines proving how fertile cults can spring forth from the infertile soil of a dying world.
Art/design: Design elements and illustrations mingle in rapturous heretical rites.
Usability: Visual and textual motifs allow for easy navigation between the faiths during play. 

Album Crawl

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

Babalon's Hangover 2

23 contributors
Concept: “A bestiary brimmed with 105 pages, 42+ Occult monsters, including Esoteric scriptures to die for, and Hopeless dungeons to die even more for.”
Content: Monsters and scriptures and dungeons, Oh my!
Writing: Text ranges from bloviated to concise; brisk to simple. But it is reliably miserable.
Art/design: A menagerie of styles as creative and varied as the community which spawned them.
Usability: Divided in three sections with a full index to aid navigation. Entries of varied accessibility and ease of reference at your table. 

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.
Art/design: A masterful balance of utility, consistency, and style. Haunting yet austere illustrations and maps fill but do not dominate the pamphlet.
Usability: Pairs well with Western Wall (also by Rugose Kohn). 

BEAR-THING

Concept: “BEAR-THING Hungry. BEAR-THING Angry. BEAR-THING Hangry.”
Content:
An undead amalgam of bear and goblin (but also undead)
Writing:
Succinctly but entertainingly describes behavior and motivation
Art/design:
Economic arrangement of text around a pretty expressive image
Usability:
Keeps PCs on their toes by knocking them off their feet (with its blood)

Blood Money

Concept: “While languishing in a drunken stupor in a coastal town flophouse … you were abducted by a press gang.”
Content:
A seafaring framework inspired by Tom Waits (and Herman Melville (and whoever wrote The Book of Jonah))
Writing:
Sets the scene and provides a plethora of options for play
Art/design:
Supports the nautical theme subtly but effectively
Usability:
Intended more as a toolbox than a unified dungeon or set of mechanics

Candelabra of Blood

Concept: “It's a candelabra. Of blood. It uses hit points to summon Blood Drenched Skeletons. Or it might turn you into a skeleton. You get to decide.”
Content:
The concept pretty much sums it up.
Writing:
Two clear and concise sentences
Art/design:
A suitably gory figure with a floral ground that keeps the black and white spaces visually interesting
Usability:
For the GM, straightforward; for PCs, potentially lethal and hilarious (unless you’re another PC—then it’s even more lethal)

Compatible with Mörk Borg (a sticker)

Concept: “Turn anything your heart desires into a Compatible with MÖRK BORG product! Candles! Soda! Soda Candles! Bags of Salt! Dish rags! Piles of dogshit!"
Content: Stickers.
Writing: A generic version of the legal text and the (optional) “compatible with” logo.
Art/design: Yellow sticker, black font, bloody skulls.
Usability: Place (ir)responsibly. 

Cross of Glorious Victory of Filth

Concept: “A massive, prolapsed orifice fountains forth a constant stream of viscous contaminants. Drink deeply of its wickedness!”
Content:
The inverted anus cross we’ve all hoped for and dreamed of
Writing:
Light lore with mechanics for contact, consumption, and replication
Art/design:
Split-page layout provides easy access to the text and displays the cross in all its inverted anal glory
Usability:
“‘Nay, Theophrastus, cease to poke yon inverted anus cross!’”

Down and Out in a Schleswig Sanitorium

Concept: “Recently the staff has all been murdered by a patient gone rogue. That suits the King’s ends well enough.”
Content:
Clever scenario, especially the conclusion
Writing:
Disturbingly descriptive at times, humorously irreverent at others
Art/design:
Adapts Nohr-esque style to express its “sterile” environment
Usability:
Well organized by category, but involves some flipping/scrolling/shuffling

Ducks Left Wanting (to be left alone)

Concept: “A herd of ducks aimlessly wander a dungeon hallway. Items of use or value tied round their necks. But catching ducks ALWAYS comes with a cost.”
Content:
“A two page spread with rules for catching ducks, a d20 table of juicy rewards tied round their necks, and a d20 table of all the horrible shit that can happen when one is catching ducks!”
Writing:
Primarily tables with some descriptive text connecting the scenario to the larger adventure; rife with body humor
Art/design:
A plethora of ducks, sinister and otherwise
Usability:
d20 not included
