A downloadable Granny

Buy Now$6.00 USD or more

Early in 2020 I had a dream about a passive aggressive, Southern Gothic grandma ghost that bullied everyone about their insufficient Christmas decorating until they cried. It attempted to goad me but, being unfamiliar with this horrible Christmas spirit tradition, I was unmoved. It muttered a wretched prophecy at me and then floated back out the door, into the night.

Less than 24 hours later I wrote that dream into a creature for the amazing MÖRK BORG system by Ockult Örtmästare Games and the Stockholm Kartell. And then I sat on it. Kept it in the vault where it laid. Watching...waiting...

THE TIME OF WAITING IS OVER! On this bleakest of holiday seasons, Granny is here. A Southern Gothic monstrosity inspired by a dream. This dread creature is sure to haunt your players right where they're safest: In their own homes. During the holidays. Sneering with judgment.

The four pages of Granny are professionally laid out and come with a sweet piece of custom art by Mr. Borgs himself, Johan Nohr. If you would like access to this beautiful piece of holiday ephemera and cannot afford the asking price, feel free to reach out to the creator directly via any number of social media services.

Awesome holiday creature feature for Mörk Borg! Is this a King Diamond reference?


You know, it was there in the back of my mind, but this was genuinely inspired by a dream I had. The details are fairly accurate to the dream!


You articulated her perfectly. I have some extended family that fits Granny to a T.

I definitely think you could continue the elderly relative theme with a King Diamond inspired adventure.

I'm looking for any good excuse to add them to my Mörk Borg soundtrack.

Looking forward to your next project!


Have you had a look at the Betrayed Phantom yet? :)


I'm not sure what it was, but I suddenly felt possessed by the need to follow that link. ;-)
