You are at your wits end travelling the bleak mires of this land, but word has come to you from an old fisherman with great promise.

He has heard that it is the famed galleon, Ouroboros, known throughout the region as a cursed vessel… but not without its worth.

A transformative tale of woe on the endless sea. An old fisherman's tale come true. I guarantee your Scvm will be changed by the experience.


Just picked up this module and used it for my second time running Mork Borg! Everyone actually lived through it and a great time was had, any word on when part 2 shows up?


Thanks for the support and I'm glad you enjoyed it! We have no current ETA on part 2 as it's still a while away, but there will be a few smaller projects coming out in the meantime.


Quickly rising to the top of Itch's 'physical games' category, Ouroboros is the perfect addition to everyone's Mork Borg campaign. Mystery, pirates, mermen, and more! All packaged in a beautiful presentation. I can't wait to see what else Chalkdown releases.


You are too kind <3
