Mordhark - 1st Edition


Mordhark is a fantasy game, like many, but one that relies on planning, improvisation, wit, and just a little bit of luck. There are no health points, there are no experience points, there are no levels, and there are no easy victories. Test yourself, build a career as a crafter, an adventurer, a leader, a holy man, a wielder of magic, a witch, or a mercenary. Fight kingdoms, beasts, undead, and the beyond itself, working towards the meta-plot of saving Mordhark from ruin, or being its demise. The choice is yours.

The Mordhark rulebook includes:

  • An in-depth summarization of the lore of the universe, and the planet Mordhark itself, the basics of the economy, as well as the people populating it and its regions
  • Rules on the functions of stats, skills, and the multi-system functionality of the game and its purpose
  • Classes, archetypes, doctrines, and races for players to pick from
  • A detailed combat system primarily reliant on narrative roleplay, mixed with armor ratings, penetration, wound variations, and critical strikes
  • A magic system where spells are invented on-the-fly with an emphasis more on how magic is implemented within the world, than its mere functionality and mechanics
  • A flexible crafting system for creating alchemy, potions, gear, and general items
  • Arms and armor, with light, sturdy, and heavy armor types, as well as polearms, swords, axes, maces, and more, and each with their own pros and cons to offer a variety of strategies and preferences for battle
  • Light and fast rules for large-scale wars and battles

This game aims to satisfy the more hardcore fans of RPG's with its ruthlessness and high level of lethality using a 1d100 custom variant system, though it also caters to those who prefer lighter RPG's to roleplay narratively with in a familiar 1d20 style stat system, while also entertaining the more imaginitive with a 1d6 dice-pool system for magic and its effects.

And when you're done reading through the rulebook, hurry over to purchase "Mordhark Factions". It contains almost 600 pages of different monsters, beasts, and people which populate the world and setting of Mordhark!

NOTE: Character sheets are not included. You can download them for free, along with the maps.

Any chance of a preview? (PDF if possible). Sounds worth checking out, but I'd really like to get a taste for the product.

Sorry, I thought I had turned on previews originally. It should be previewable now.

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.
