Apocalypse World Quick Start

So this past weekend I ran a fun AW game and I did playbook selection a bit differently. Instead of just putting a pile of sheets in front of people I instead asked leading questions like “Who is in charge?” and then offered three play books for that person to pick (Hardholder, Hocus, Chopper). The…

Callout to the Readers: Fixing the Great Captain

Back in early January, I posted about The Great Captain class for Dungeon World. It had a move that allowed him to have a group of men that followed him, but these men were purely narrative-based. There were no stats for them at all. And while this is a very simple way to allow a…

Wheel of Time Classes for Dungeon World: The Great Captain

On Christmas Eve, I put out the post about the ideas I had for the Great Captain class in Dungeon World, so I’m going to bother to explain what the class is meant to cover. Instead, I’ll just hop right into the class description. The Great Captain Some Stats Damage Die: d10 Load: 10+STR Max…

Wheel of Time Classes for Dungeon World: Aiel Warrior

When starting work on the Aiel, I really expected the class to fall under the Warrior archetype, but it ended up being in the Rogue archetype. After doing some thinking about this, I realized that it made sense, but I had fought a little with myself on it for a while. This class doesn’t have…

Wheel of Time Classes for Dungeon World: The Traveller

A while back, my bud decided he would like to run a Wheel of Time campaign in Dungeon World. At first he was thinking about just using the built-in classes and reflavoring them, but I was able to change his mind on that, showing how they really didn’t fit the “classes” of characters in Wheel…

Homebrew Blood Mage Class Design for D&D Next

A couple weeks ago, I put up Blood Mage as a Steal This Character article. In this article, I’m going to flesh it out a bit more for D&D Next. I’m avoiding a lot of actual numbers because 1) I’m not able to test this class (my group has moved away from D&D permanently) and…

My Mage Variant to Create a Sorcerer in D&D Next

To start this off, I’d like to explain why I’m doing the Sorcerer as a Mage variant instead of a full-blown class. First off, it’s less work (only slightly, in this case) to do some replacements than to write a whole class; second, I like how Archetypes in Pathfinder work, and find it a perfectly…
