Do you like TTRPGs? Do you enjoy reference cards filled with items, magical scrolls, beasts, abilities, lore, advice, and hundreds of unique custom illustrations? If so, then this set of 166 double sided, tarot size MÖRK BORG Compatible, ttrpg friendly cards may be what you have been looking for.

Each card is an item taken directly from the rules like TTRPG MÖRK BORG. These are not official content but with the unholy blessing of Johan Nohr and team MÖRK BORG the cards will consist of not only all the equipment, weapons, service, and beasts from page 25 but also Occult Treasures, Corpse Plundering, Unclean Scrolls, Sacred Scrolls,  as well as class specific items and specialties.

Not only will you obtain a useful set of reference cards but a zine, that allows for a solo/coop gameplay mode in the form of a journaling adventure.

The card thief zine is a tool for players to tell a story; a journey to uncover forbidden arcane magicks at any cost. It provides structure and guidance in the form of writing prompts, events, tables, and requirements that need to be completed in order progress to the next session. Players can play it together but it truly shines as a solitary experience. The zine is intended as a supplement or campaign addition rather than something that steers gameplay and main quest narratives.

To play that zine as well as aid in standard play you will also gain access to a set of reusable character sheets called vitality chart cards. These cards make it easy to track your stats and gain quick reference to rules during standard or solo play. 

MÖRK BORG Core Item Reference cards and the Card Thief Card Game are independent productions by Alex K. Barton of newyear Studios and are not affiliated with Ockult Örtmästare Games or Stockholm Kartell. It is published under the MÖRK BORG Third Party License.

Made possible via Kickstarter!

What is the best printing settings to get them to be tarot size? I've just started printing at home. My 8.5x11 comes out to small to be tarot card sized.

Hey Conley! Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. These  cards are laid out on vertical A4 sheets. That said, they should print just fine on 8.5x11 US standard sheets. To insure they print to scale when you enter the print dialogue uncheck "Scale To Fit" if it is selected. It may also help to set the document to print with center alignment top and bottom so that it is not offset to the upper left  corner. A little of the top and bottom  of each page may get cropped off using this method but it will print the cards to scale. Each card should print at the size 2.75" x 4.75" (70 mm x 120 mm) If they are this size but still don't fit check your tarot card sleeves. There are actually a few variations on the Tarot card size and I have run into oversized sleeves a few times. Hope this helps! Best of luck printing! Reach back out if you continue to have issues and I will see what more I can do to assist.


Thanks for your continued work on this. Proud to be a supporter. I just downloaded the digital copies to look over. Cheers


Thank you for your patience with me and the kind words! I am excited to have the pdfs officially out.



Glad to see this and can't wait to get my scvm covered hands on the physical cards!

Any further update on this?

Hey Whiizom, thanks for checking in on this project. I updated the main KS campaign page with a project update a while back to let everyone know the project is alive and well. I have simply been working on the solo/coop zine alot and have recently moved homes, it has taken me a while to get back into the swing of things. I am behind schedule, but plan on digital versions going out to backers by July. Physical copies will take longer as they have yet to even go to the printer yet. I apologize for the delay. Life have recently just been eating up alot of my personal work time. I again apologize for the delay. I had hoped to have the project done and to the printer by now but life had other things planned. :( 

hell yes ☠️ ⚔️ 🩸 


Thanks for the comment! The phrase "Hell yes" has never made me feel more appreciated. lol Please do spread the word about the project. I am no social media master lol.
