The Warlord Playbook: Dungeon World

I’ve been kicking this idea for a while and I finally got it done. One thing I liked about D&D 4e was that healers didn’t need to be clerics. They introduced the warlord and suddenly we had a martial healer and I loved it. So I wanted to try to capture the fun of that…

Slaves and Sorcery: Part One

In my review of The Perilous Wilds, I spoke of the game my group had just started. Here is the first play report from that game. Sorry it took so long, our group had some scheduling issues so it took us a bit to get going. First let’s… Meet the cast! Tai’Bon and Thugger- a…

The Wall: A Dungeon World Quick Start/One Shot

I’ve been reading a lot of Game of Thrones lately and one of my favorite bits of lore is the Wall. In this world the Wall is a huge ice wall built to keep the barbarians and monsters of the north out and away from the civilized people of the south. The Wall is manned…

Wheel of Time Classes for Dungeon World: Aes Sedai

It’s been a little while since I’ve given an update for Wheel of Time stuff. This is because I was unable to spend the needed time with my friend that I was usually spending with him to work on them due to the lenten season. It’s still going to be iffy for a while until…

A New Take on Icons

Even though I have ran 13th Age a few times my group still struggles with Icons. For those of you who haven’t played 13th Age, Icons are the biggest NPC’s in the game. They aren’t gods, but they are definitely more powerful than any other mortal on the planet sans the other Icons. When you…

Apocalypse World Hx in Dungeon World

It should be no surprise that I love AW and DW. Each system is beautiful in its own way. They are both great at telling stories in their own way, but one thing I always liked more was the way AW does histories as opposed to DW. So for fun I wrote up how AW…

Wheel of Time Monsters for Dungeon World: Shadowspawn

I thought I’d change it up a little bit this time and make some monsters instead of character classes. I haven’t had any experience running DW, so I have very little exposure to monsters in it. I realize that some of my monsters are a little bit mechanics-heavy, and I am willing to listen to…
