Sticking within the licensing rules for MORK BORG third-party content, I believe, and thus meaning you need a copy of the core RPG if you want access to scrolls, items and other crunchy bits, MINIMAL BORG is nevertheless a Name Your Own Price way to get a MORK BORG running.
The alternative take also adds some alternative classes, and author, Vandel Arden, promises the document will be expanded as their own gaming group explores.
I paid $2 for the download. However, the entire 2-page cutdown is shown on its Itch.io page. The core rules fit on the first page, character creation on the other, and I wish I had this before this year’s virtual convention season in which I played my first MORK BORG games.
I still don’t have a copy of the basic rules. I regret not buying it on Kickstarter, but now – more so with purchases like MINIMAL BORG – the chances of me finding the cash for the hugely popular game are reducing. It may be a job for Santa.
I don’t regret paying $2 for MINIMAL BORG. I don’t. It’s not that much less than the core rules, but it’s less than a coffee and feels more like a community purchase.
However, what I don’t have and what this download doesn’t give me is the ambience of MORK BORG. I don’t get Death Metal and doom from these two clean white pages. The vibe has been cut.
