No, this isn't about Robin Williams getting transported to the Star Trek universe and being captured by the Borg. And while that's a bit disappointing, the real news is exciting as well. Free League Publishing will be releasing the Mork Borg apocalyptic fantasy RPG later this month. The game was originally funded via Kickstarter, but it's ready to hit the general market. If you like your games super-dark and super-gritty, this might be the one for you.
From the post:
Following a Kickstarter campaign fully funded in roughly 66.6 minutes, blackened artpunk RPG MÖRK BORG gets its worldwide release on February 25. Designed by Ockult Örtmästare Games and Stockholm Kartell, MÖRK BORG is the first RPG to be published under Free League Workshop, Free League Publishing's upcoming sublabel for selected externally developed games.
MÖRK BORG is a pitch-black apocalyptic fantasy RPG about lost souls and fools seeking redemption, forgiveness or the last remaining riches in a bleak and decaying world. Who are you? The tomb-robber with silver glittering between cracked fingernails? The mystic who would bend the world’s heart away from it’s inevitable end? The world is dying. And you with it.
A doom metal album of a game. A spiked flail to the face. Rules light, heavy everything else.
MÖRK BORG is already available to pre-order in the Free League webshop, and will be available in select retail stores from February 25.
