Sign-Up to the Black Powder and Brimstone RPG Kickstarter

About Black Powder and Brimstone

The Orthodox and Puritans of the Church of the Sacred Blood are stuck in a stalemate of a war that has raged for decades. You are a desperate adventurer stuck in the middle of the conflict, desperately trying to survive, and maybe even profit, amongst the chaos and destruction.

Wield unique and characterful weapons, each with their own rules and advantages on top of the damage die. The arsenal includes the dreaded Black Powder weapons — infernal devices that ignore all armor on a hit and can cause as much mayhem and destruction to the wielder as the intended target.

As well as mortal weapons, there are forbidden and powerful magics that can warp reality as easily as an artist paints a canvas. But beware, for magic is as dangerous as it is powerful. If you use it in front of the wrong people, then be prepared to deal with the dreaded agents of the Inquisition.

This action-packed, rules-light, art-heavy OSR game offers swashbuckling adventure and gothic folk horror in an unholy blend. A treasure chest of character options, items, locations, adventures, and enemies, both human and monstrous, waits to be opened.

About the Designer
The game creator Benjamin Tobitt was raised in the haunted wilds of Dorset, before seeking his fortune in the grand and terrible city of London. After receiving an education at the Kingston University of Arts, he worked as an illustrator, animator, director, and comic book artist. During the Great Plague, he and his wife moved to the frozen nation of Sweden to practice their own form of witchcraft, assisted by the feline familiar commonly known as “Gus”.  Black Powder and Brimstone is his magical creation, the culmination of years of passion and research into the 30 Years War, folk horror, and witchcraft.

MÖRK BORG is a blackened art-punk RPG about miserable bastards and heretics enduring a bleak, dying world. It came out of nowhere and ravaged the roleplaying game scene in 2020 when it won four gold ENNNIEs (Product of the Year is one of them) and has become a cult hit with a dedicated following ever since.
