There is a whole new generation of RPGs that in recent years have been entering the market, creating small niches of players, both new and old ones, and establishing themselves for something different or particular. MÖRK BORG is one of these new modern RPGs!
Anyone who conceives RPG only as the classic (and wonderful with its ups and downs) Dungeons & Dragons might turn up their noses at this product.
But if you have an open mind and look around for something new and different, MÖRK BORG hits you like a knife …. rusty!
MÖRK BORG is an extremely lean RPG, very few rules and lots of illustrations. It is part of the OSR (Old School Renaissance), belonging to that movement that wants to revive the role-playing style typical of the 70s and 80s, let’s talk about the dawn of the world RPG in practice. At the moment it is only available in English and Swedish, its original language, and there is no news on an Italian translation.
MÖRK BORG is a doomsday artpunk RPG where miserable bastards and heretics survive and endure a bleak and dying world. The authors themselves define it as a sharp scourge that comes right in your face!
But after this little introduction, today we want to talk to you about MÖRK BORG CULT: HERETIC, its expansion!
CULT: HERETIC has recently achieved success on Kickstarter, managing to accumulate funding for over 140 thousand euros! Not a bad result for a niche RPG expansion! It will be composed of material already available for free on the official website of the game, but also of other exclusive goodies intended only for Kickstarter. In this acid-colored e-zine you will find new monsters, adventures, additional lore, cursed items and much more. In addition, some pledge levels also include the ability to take home the Master’s screen and a mysterious black sealed envelope, which the bravest whisper contains information on four dead and forgotten deities (Bilkherd, Becklure, Old Dead and Silkfiend).
CULT: HERETIC follows the stylistic line of the original core game. With drawings that break the patterns of the pages. Different types of fonts that pile up in pages full of notes and without dozens of tables. Colors that hurt the eyes and seem to affect the heart. The impression is that it manages to convey his playful message not through tables and rules, but with a unique, purely artistic style that fills our eyes and mind with an atmosphere so dense that it makes us identify and become passionate!
I don’t know if we will be able to play it here in the GEEK FAMILY because these are still books full of mature content! We will see what the finished product will look like when we can get our hands on it and let you know. We also look forward to receiving all the previous material from MÖRK BORG to analyze it in detail with you and for you!
In the meantime, I invite you to consult the page of the Kickstarter project, find the link below, and if you have any questions do not hesitate to write to us on our social channels or at email@example.com! p.s. soon the LATE PLEDGE will open for latecomers who maybe like you discovered the project with a little delay !!!
