Mëch Borg (Zine Month 2022)
A downloadable misery
IT IS SAID that giants once walked these lands.
IT IS SAID that they drove armies before them and laid waste to cities.
IT IS SAID that they are all gone now.
Many things are said.
Not all are true.
Mëch Borg is a third-party supplement for MÖRK BORG. It introduces mecha - giant, piloted robots - into the dark metal fantasy world.
Think Vision of Escaflowne meets BattleTech, but fucked up.
Like its parent game, Mëch Borg is rules-light and flavor-heavy. You barely-literate scvm won't need to learn a ton of new stuff. This ain't your accursed sire's Mëch game. Combat remains fast and free-form. Hack and blast your enemies with abandon, until you fall or the world ends, whichever comes first.
Itchfunding has ended, but the PDF will always be available!
Mëch Borg had a previous, brief crowdfund period on the author's Twitter. 25 copies of a 24-page ashcan were funded and printed. These will never be produced again. On this page, you can still purchase a PDF of the ashcan, with an expanded edition forthcoming.
Right now, Mëch Borg's ashcan has the following sections:
- Introduction and Game Rules
- Basic Mëch creation
- Five sample Mëchs
- A bit of lore about the Arena
- A single Mëch-scale Mörkaiju
- Some very random tables
While we didn't quite make every goal I had planned, Mëch Borg's final edition will be 32 pages long, with a color cover. It'll include an extra Mëch, more information on the Arena, full rules for Mörkaiju, more random tables, and a short adventure.
Images not final.
The following pledge level is still available:
- Digital Zine Only: $10 USD
Everyone who buys in now gets a PDF of the ashcan immediately, with the full edition coming by August.
Oh, and if you already bought the ashcan from me, you're getting a PDF copy of the final book for free. If you want to add on (or switch to) the final physical edition, contact me.
The campaign has ended! Due to a delay caused by a failed graphics tablet, the final book may not ship until August, but I'm still hoping for a June release, at least of the PDF.
Thank you! I do hope you have as much fun playing this as I did making it.
This project is proud to be part of Zine Month 2022!
