Roll20 and OneBookShelf have announced a joint venture that will involve some management shuffling and give you access to all PDFs in the Roll20 VTT… eventually. Not as earth-chattering as some people are making it out to be. It feels more like an excuse to bully smaller publishers that want access to customers and tart yourself up for your eventual buyout by Wizards of the Coast. Good luck with that. This adds convenience but at what cost to the employees, designers and customers of these games. Oh, and did I mention it will also kill the now redundant Astral VTT? It’s just the beginning of a much bigger mess. Roll20 took 10 years to add basic quality of life features to their platform and OBS has the worst backend of any online sales platform. A match made in heaven.

The latest official adventure for Troika! is now on Kickstarter. The Big Squirm is a hard-boiled mystery about speculative worm trading. Players are private detectives and in an open sandbox adventure with a series of clues to uncover by any means necessary. Written by Luke Gearing, previously of Acid Death Fantasy, it will be a 100-page hardcover book with over 40 pieces of art by Andrew Walter and of course published by the Melsonion Arts Council.

Miss White Boy Summer? Well now we have the Summer of 2d20. Modiphius is promoting the release of their 2d20 SRD with a sale of all of their published 2d20 systems in both physical and digital form.

Marketing!

And finally, proof that Stockholm Kartell’s hit TTPRG isn’t just and art project that escaped to your tabletop. Mork Borg: Barebones Edition is now available for FREE. It is all the text of the original yellow book with the art and much of the graphic design removed. The PDF is available on Johan Nohr’s Itch.io page as Pay what you want. Hopefully, he had the task of dismantling his beautiful doom metal art masterpiece himself so that it maintained some of the wonderful feel of the full volume edition.

Paizo has announced a digital toolset for Pathfinder 2E in collaboration with Demiplane. Planned release is early 2022. Adam Bradford who previous helped create D&D Beyond for 5E is leading the development. Humble Bundle has a huge Warhammer Fantasy 2E and 4E bundle from Cubicle7. This is the first time the Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay second edition rulebook has been officially available digitally. A new version of Mork Borg is headed to Kickstarter. Cy_Borg is the cyberpunk very of the dark metal rules light system. This will give player the chance to darken up their scifi and cyberpunk roleplay. Although, cyberpunk could never be accused of being a cheery and optimistic setting. Plus the switch from balck metal to dark synthwave should be pretty effortless. And finally, what class and alignment would Bug Bunny be in Dungeons & Dragons. We were told back in 1981 and must have forgotten.

MÖRK BORG is a blackened artpunk doomsday rpg about miserable bastards and heretics enduring a bleak, dying world. It’s a doom metal album of a game. A spiked flail to the face. Rules light, heavy everything else. It’s made by Pelle Nilsson of Ockult Örtmästare Games and Johan Nohr from Stockholm Kartell, and published by Free League Publishing.

PUTRESCENCE REGNANT is a MÖRK BORG bog crawl in LP vinyl format, yellow and black marbled. The gatefold cover doubles up as an impromptu GM screen with a map of Targ-Dungel, rules for traveling, capsizing and drowning, information about the roaming undead bog bodies and a random encounter table for each of the three distinct sections of the bog: The Royal Swamps, Killer’s Moor and The Rotlands.

Included in the record is also an 8-page insert full of content such as a map and description of the swamp hamlet Traurish, circa 20 minor locations as well as the three factions and their dwellings. Adding to this are creatures, swamp gas, foul smells and soggy death for hours upon hours of rotten gaming. The text will be written by Johan Nohr and Pelle Nilsson, and edited by Brian Yaksha of Rakehell fame. Before we call it a day, the relentless typo-hunters from MoonRat Conspiracy Jarrett Crader and Fiona Maeve Geist will dig into the text to ensure that no errors still lurk in the muck.

Treasures Of The Troll King: a MÖRK BORG Adventure is an RPG sewer-crawl adventure by Chris Bissette, with art by Johan Nohr. Galgenbeck is palimpsest. Tumour. A city built on the ruins of itself. Beneath the sewers the bones of the old city fester. The troll-king Niduk was exiled, driven into the depths to rot and die. Now twisted by hatred and rage he oversees the small domain he has carved for himself, in a forgotten chapel to a murdered god. Why are you here? A lost bet? A doomed quest for silver? Boredom? Does it even matter?
