The Final Day – RPG Tool for the End Times

Warning ⚠ Linked content has mature themes of violence, blood, and everything “a spiked flail to the face” of “a pitch-black apocalyptic fantasy RPG about lost souls” would imply 💀

October had the goal to make a Mörk Borg moduleThe Final Hours of the Final Day is it, the perfect RPG tool for your own game’s end times 🔥

What Is The Final Day?

A grimdark, fantasy-themed list of 36 terrible ends to the world. Rolling D66 (one six-sided die is the first value, a second D6 the second value), select a tragedy to bring into the game to send a one-shot game or a whole campaign off with a bang.

From the rules:

The seventh seal is broken, the onslaught of the seventh Misery begins. These are your final hours. Every 15 to 30 real-minutes (or 1 hour game time), roll D66 twice on the below. If the same number has been used before, use the next highest that is unused.

The curtain falls for the last and final time when:

  1. all characters the players have or could play as (such as friendly NPCs) are dead and gone,
  2. all six of a section have been enacted (close and burn the book – existence snuffs out without warning),
  3. actions have miraculously stopped the machinations prophesied by Verhu of HE so long ago.

Meant to come at the end of what already may be a long gaming session, The Final Day careens headlong into chaos and cataclysm at a literally-breakneck pace.

While catering to the stats, lore, and ‘weird’ of Mörk Borg, The Final Day can be brought into any fantasy setting – stat effects can be either random stats or a best-call for the system in question, monsters are monsters or their near counterparts, and difficulties are generic enough for any system (minimum 10% change in probabilities).

While Your World Burns:

I seek out a graphic artist open for paid commissions who would put together The Final Day in the style of other Mörk Borg content. Send your recommendations my way!

Finally, the legal stuff:

That’s it! Working on a modern day, system agnostic version of The Final Day – expect a post on that soon.

In the meantime, shoot me your suggestions and artists who are open for work! Cheers to your gaming ~
