Strange Citizens of the City, A Third-Party Mörk Borg Zine


NOTE: This is a 5.5" x 8.5" 36-page zine. The zip file includes both single-page and spreads.

Strange Citizens of the City is a collection of characters, possibly monsters, and was written to assist the gamemaster in populating the game world. The characters described within the pages of this slim booklet are divided into four categories:

  • Strange Citizens of the City, a 2d6 table to characters and the bulk of the book. Each of these eleven different characters fills a two-page spread and offers background info on the character that the GM may run with or ignore. (twenty-two pages)
  • Hired Goons, a 1d8 table of minor characters who are far less detailed than those characters described in the previous section of the book. At times, the 2d6 characters within the Strange Citizens of the City chapter will list "hired goons" as a special ability of sorts. When that happens, feel free to select a few of those goons from this section. (four pages)
  • (Possibly) Harmless Wanderers, 2d6 characters that are mostly intended as bizarre encounters the player characters may stumble into when walking the city streets. These characters include no game statistics and are purely descriptive. (four pages
  • 1d8 Places in the City, eight different locations for the PCs to explore. (four pages)

And that is it! When we add the front and back covers, we reach the book's total of thirty-six pages and have no more space left to discuss. Strange Citizens of the City could technically be used with almost any fantasy roleplaying game -- so long as the gamemaster isn't afraid of adapting concepts and inventing the stats necessary to use the characters with other games -- but it works best with Mörk Borg

A huge thank you to the Mörk Borg team for publishing that third-party license. This booklet would have never come about if not for the game being so amazing and the generosity of the license.

This PDF was created thanks to the support of 1,242 backers who joined in the Kickstarter campaign for Strange Citizens of the City. Thank you to all of the supporters for making that campaign a success!

I genuinely prefer the artwork in here to Mörk Borg's not legendary look. Obviously their layout looked better, but the original (at least original looking) art, and legibility puts this leagues ahead. I'm going to look for your kickstarter, so I can roleplay myself into bankruptcy with the printed copies.

Is it possible to get this, or any of your other Mork Borg zines in print?

I offer the print titles in my Kickstarter campaigns. I do not have an online store.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
