Mortal Konquest is an unofficial roleplaying game set in the dark world of Mortal Kombat®. This is not a computer game! It’s a pencil-and-paper, face-to-face RPG for two to six or more players. The complete game rules are on three medium-sized pages, all linked to the index page. We’d really like for anyone who downloads these rules to say something about them to a friend, even if only to say they stink like yesterday’s fish. Watch this space for announcements about unofficial rules supplements, unofficial adventures, and other unofficial stuff involving Mortal Konquest.
