Come hither, child, and let me spin you a yarn about a decrepit king of olde and his love for wicked curses...

The fairy tales told to young children before bedtime aren't all joyful and triumphant, especially in a craven land destined for doom. 

This jam whimsically requests its participants to create brand-new third-party dark fairy tales that could be told in the world of the MÖRK BORG RPG.  Your submission can be based on an existing fairy tale, or a brand new story with fantastic elements that would fit our dark world.

The submissions can be an adventure putting your scvm in the enchanted shoes of the main characters of a tale, a magical item of yore, a formidable enemy, talking animal NPCs,  or something else entirely.


  • Make it dark, make it mischievous, but DO NOT make it misogynistic/sexist, racist,  homophobic, transphobic, or otherwise discriminatory in any way.
  • Please keep in mind the theme of the jam when creating your content.
  • Beginners are welcome and encouraged to participate! No fancy art/layout is needed.
  • Trigger Warning: some submissions may contain triggering content or intense depictions of violence.
  • Please include the Mork Borg third party licensing text in your submission. This can be found here:


Everyone who participates in this jam will get to vote on three different categories for submissions:

  • Most Dark & Whimsical (ie. Best Fits the Theme)
  • Most Fantastic Art/Layout
  • Most Fanciful Writing

The winner of each category will receive undying adoration! (prizes may be added later. Keep an eye out here!)
