Frontier Scum by Den of Druids | RPG Review
Karl Druid takes the Mörk Borg framework and gives us an acid western game of outlaws destined to be brought through the mire and muck just to face certain death... or worse. Not only that he gives us a book that feels as if it's from the setting itself!

Land of Eem RPG Actual Play "Curse of the Chicken-Foot Witch"
Land of Eem is a game about adventurers exploring and discovering the remnants of a forgotten, better age. Players portray lore-seeking travelers, fortune-seeking pioneers and adventure-seeking heroes in a time devoid of them.
But for all its post-apocalyptic doom and gloom, Land of Eem is a lighthearted game with a sense of humor. Set in the world of our two fantasy series Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo and Dungeoneer Adventures, the game combines Lord of the Rings high fantasy epicness with a heavy dose of Muppets-like whimsy and a dash of Mad Max dystopia.
Watch our actual play of "Curse of the Chicken-foot Witch" HERE. Check out https://www.backerkit.com/c/exalted-funeral/land-of-eem for the BackerKit Crowdfunding campaign.

CY_BORG RPG Actual Play "Reaper Repo"
CY_BORG RPG Actual Play "Reaper Repo" - Victory Condition GamingCY_BORG is a cyberpunk spinoff game based on and compatible with multi-award-winning apocalyptic heavy metal RPG MÖRK BORG. This is to noise, industrial and underground hiphop what MÖRK BORG is to doom and black metal. Rules-light, rage-heavy. A fever-dream of tech, punk and fury. Of fighting a failed future. A deck-hacking, brick-throwing upheaval of a game. A game about climate collapse, out-of-control consumerism, the commodification of personal data, late-stage capitalism, transhumanism and senseless violence. 160 pages of cybernetic upheaval. CY_BORG RPG is a messed-up mirror image of MÖRK BORG RPG. Similar in tone and approach to game and book design but enhanced and augmented. Includes an introductory scenario and ≈60 random tables for your every cyberpunk need.
