A Kergüsian scenario compatible with MÖRK BORG

For a few hours each year, the seas beneath the glaciers of Kergüs retreat, revealing salted dungeons in their wake. Within these waterlogged tunnels of ice - the CLAMS. The ones who find them get rewarded - those who find the most win the finest prize of all: an audience with our Lady Anthelia.

Clamdash! is a clever one page Mork Borg scenario with a tight premise and some fun, lighthearted (well, sorta) adventuring.

The basic premise is that a rare clam dungeon has just recently unflooded, and if you gather enough clams you can earn an audience with Anthelia. This is a nice mix between approachable and system-neutral and specific and hooked into the Mork Borg metaplot, and it's just as easy to drop Clamdash into a campaign as it is to run it as a one-off.

The layout is what you'd expect for a Mork Borg game. It's intricate and dense, but everything is readable despite that. There's a lot of contrast used to make the text pop, and the background and dungeon map are both nice pieces of art.

Mechanics-wise, Clamdash is clever. The dungeon is constantly re-flooding, and each chamber has markers to track how high its water level is. The longer you spend mucking about, the more the dungeon floods. The more the dungeon floods, the more dangerous its deeper rooms become. This underlying push-your-luck mechanic feels neat, but the dungeon itself is solidly build as well. There's a variety of ways to progress, the monsters all have unique builds and personality, there's options for backup PCs, and the rewards are good if the party does manage to thread the needle on filling their clam buckets without being flooded out.

Overall, if you're looking for an osr oneshot, I'd strongly consider this. It's fun, it's an interesting challenge, and it's quite flavorful.

Thank you for reading, and for such a kind and detailed breakdown! ❤️

THE CLAMS! Players had a blast-- we had a fun group discussion about whether a skeleton can get salt lung. Decided to pickle his eyes to the same effect. The merman in our group was very pleased. 10 🦑 out of 10 🦑.

Stoked y'all enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing <3

I supported above price point but got nothing exclusive. What's the extra material?

That's a message itch adds when you set up community copies that cannot be changed afaik 😔

Thanks for the support though, appreciate it loads! I guess I'll have to come up with something to give you 🤔

This is SUCH a good little adventure. It's cleverly written, quite humorous without being too joke-y and a breath of fresh, or rather stagnant and salt-stinking air! ALSO EMOJIS!!!1

Dude, Calamurder is getting numbers to become a recurring bitch in my playings! 

I hope you regale us with the tales of the Calamurder Squid!
