Ashes of Käsedorf, a pointcrawl for Mörk Borg


Beastmen strike at the heart of Tveland! Käsedorf in in ruins!

"You... You crawl from the ruins of Käsedorf with a grudge. Go take back what was lost. Go get revenge for that which can't be gotten back. Go now, while you still have the strength to make a difference."

Ashes of Käsedorf is is a pointcrawl/hexcrawl through the valley that's home to the smoking ruins of Käsedorf. It features multiple groups working for their own interests for you to meet and conspire or conflict with.  Enemies are mostly self contained in the bestiary, so nothing more is needed than a copy of this module and either a copy of Mörk Borg or Mörk Manual (the classic fantasy hack for Mörk Borg. Some minor things would need tweaked (one item forces corruption rolls, which are similar to catastrophes).

This module features-

  • 17 pages of fun filled mayhem!
  • Encounter tables for random fun!
  • The possibility of a total party kill!
  • 11 stat blocks for possible threats!
  • A dungeon! Yes, a dungeon! It's located in a hex. You heard that news here first, folks!
  • Hooks for furthur play.

This was a kickstarter stretch goal for rk Manual and provided to all backers free of charge. Thank you all for helping me produce the print edition.

rk Manual is a single volume game, including all rules and adversaries needed to get you started. A compendium of classic classes, scrolls, and slightly modified rules to fit classic fantasy gaming in the Mörk Borg system. The world is similar but different. You'll count down the fulfillment of prophecies predicting the return of the Dark Lord while battling his minions to try and prevent that day from arriving. 

It features:

  • SCOUNDRELS, warriors who use any weapon or armor. 
  • CHARLATANS, strong in the use of Scolls but weak otherwise.
  • DOOMSAYERS, priests and false prophets who stole Power from a god. 
  • VAGABONDS, thieves and burglars, nimble fingered and resourceful. 
  • NEW ITEMS, including WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION - magic items that have a mind and will of their own. 
  • PLUS - (PLUS!) If you order today, we'll also include... 6 more classes, plus tons Tons TONS of monsters.
With so many exciting things, what's not to love? Need more information? Taste these steaming morsels!
POWERS, not just for your grandma's scroll casting anymore. Classes integrate the use of daily powers into a wide variety of abilities and actions. They power not one scrolls but all kinds of wonderful abilitis.
CORRUPTION, not just catastrophic but a reworked failure system for Scrolls that's been massaged to be slightly more gentle while still creating interesting in game effects. 
Original-old classes, like the WURMCALLER, and the WARDEN OF GALGEN, both broken-souled but undaunted, serving as emissaries of a higher calling.
This game is full of dark humor and is intended for a mature audience. Reader descretion is advised. No horses were hurt in the making of this game. Really, we do love horses. They're amazing animals even when they're not being eaten as a distraction by Vale Wyvern as you hightail it down the mountain path, streaming tears and silver as you run.

Does the pdf have a single page format or is it just spread format?

Sorry for the slow response. There are four files, a high red version with spreads and pages, and a low res version with spreads and pages. There isn't a print friendly or ashcan version though.

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.
