Tyst Borg


Tyst Borg, or Fort of Silence, is a roleplaying game about the power of music.

In these lands, music can have even greater effects on the hearts and minds of humans and beasts, and extraordinary music can create marvelous miracles, whether to heal, harm, strengthen, weaken, summon, or banish; but noise also has destructive potential. However, not only do the sounds made by human voices or human-made instruments have these powers; many other creatures use their voices and bodies to make noise and music, mainly to hunt; some even say that it is the howling of the winds that makes the air cold, and the rumbling of the thunder that creates lightning.

Thus, music has shaped the history of these lands. In this age, the Instrumentalists are the ones in power. Both a church and an army, the Instrumentalists have a rigid hierarchy and a strict code of conduct – which, among other things, only allows them to play certain instruments and perform the scores composed by the dead Masters –, and only one goal: to make sure that, when the time comes, the Undying Orchestra performs the Requiem Æternam, which will bring the end of the world.

To oppose the oppression of the Instrumentalist rule and to avoid the apocalypse they wish to bring about are the goals of the Metal Bands, groups of rebellious, barbarian musicians who, as the long-gone ancients did, play instruments made of a rare metal called vibrium – which makes them much louder than regular instruments – and compose their own scores. Since the Undying Orchestra began performing the Requiem Æternam, the war between the Instrumentalists and the Metal Bands has become more violent and urgent and, if the doctrines are true, the end may be near.

Tyst Borg is an independent production by Tragos Games and is not affiliated with Ockult Örtmästare Games or Stockholm Kartell. It is published under the MÖRK BORG Third Party License.

File Size:

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.
