The Road of Light

Suggested Price $7.00


The Road of Light is a linear puzzle dungeon that is mostly system agnostic but is compatible created for the rules light ttrpg MÖRK BORG.

This adventure can be played as a 1 shot or as a way to steer players to Alliáns. Average Playtime is 4-7 hours. The Road of Light itself is an experiment that has some drastically divergent gameplay when compared to many other Mörk Borg scenarios. The Road of Light focuses not on combat but instead on puzzle solving. Often this scenario has no combat at all. The Road of Light instead presents itself as a tool to bond a small party together, via new lore, class changing, and puzzles that force players to work together. It also feeds into a larger epic spanning multiple Mörk Borg compatible ttrpg books that are currently in the works by newyear Studios.

"The path before you hums with energy as the ground under your feet slowly begins to glow with white light. The withered grass and charcoal black dirt disintegrate and float away into a pitch-black moonless sky. An illuminated road burst out in front of you clearing a path into the distance. The world shifts as the hills and valleys flatten, conforming to the will of this ”Road of Light.” PCs have been chosen by an unknown god of light to be tested and led to its god throne. Gates create barriers preventing progression until some lesson has been learned or some twisted will is appeased."

Within this document you will find the following:

- 43 pages filled with strange heavy metal inspired adventuring

- 14 original illustrations

- 2 new character classes

- 11 unique and challenging riddle/clue based puzzles for your players

- Rich lore that expands the Mörk Borg universe into the celestial realm


If the names of the Puzzles in this book seem strange or even familiar that's for a reason. Each one is the name of a track from the album Open the Gates by Manilla Road. Check out the album here and give it a listen as you play.

This project was developed for submission to the MÖRK BORG Album Crawl: Jam Session 2: ALBUM CRAWL ROCKS THE 80s

GameJam Checklist:

- NO LAYOUT RESTRICTIONS | Yes please! I used A5... who am i kidding? lol

A physical copy of this supplement will be available later this year via an all new website.

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.
