The Cross Stitch + PDF


Sönderfall was never much to look at, but as one of the only outposts on the trek between Tveland and the Western Kingdom, travelers came to rely on it for a brief respite from the road. Until a week ago, when rumor reached Schleswig that Sönderfall had vanished overnight.


It’s up to you to find out why.


About the Book:

The Cross Stitch is a complete folk-horror adventure for MÖRK BORG that can be played as a one-shot or part of a campaign. It uses a unique time loop mechanic that ratchets up the tension at every turn, with accompanying tables & charts to help track the goings-on of Sönderfall’s 14+ denizens (human and otherwise). It comes with four assorted maps and notes for players to discover along their investigation.

Explore a missing town, meet its eccentric residents, and confront the terrible deity at its heart if you dare.
