Free League To Publish Nautical ‘MÖRK BORG’ Hack ‘PIRATE BORG’ In Early 2023

Avast Ye! Free League Publishing and Limithron yesterday announced a publishing partnership for PIRATE BORG – a scurvy ridden, rules light, art heavy RPG based on MÖRK BORG. Inspired by history, fantasy, horror, and rum, PIRATE BORG will be officially released early next year by Free League Workshop, Free League’s sublabel for independent creators.

PIRATE BORG, successfully Kickstarted in March, is a complete game based on and compatible with the award-winning doom art-punk RPG MÖRK BORG, also published by Free League Workshop. Your cutlass & flintlock won’t save you from the hordes of skeletons, the Kraken, or even your own crew.

PIRATE BORG is a game about being a greedy, filthy scoundrel. No prey, no pay. Find a ship. Recruit some crew. Raid, pillage, plunder, and otherwise pilfer your weasley black guts out. Get a bigger ship. Kill some things. Upgrade your ship. Sneak into a fort. Raid a port. Acquire treasure. Bury said treasure. Become infamous. Search for someone else’s treasure. Flee in terror from unfathomable creatures from the deep. Drink all of the rum. Die on the high seas. Roll a new character and do it all again… For dead men tell no tales, so better get a live one as fast as you can.



Included in the 166 page book are eight character classes, easy-to-learn naval combat rules, stats for 18 vessels, 80+ NPCs & monsters, 90+ system agnostic tables, and The Curse of Skeleton Point, a sandbox style adventure with eleven pirate-themed locations. Each copy also includes a double-sided folded map. The game is written and illustrated by Luke Stratton, also known as Limithron, who is known for his pirate-themed battle maps.
