Dungeon World - Who wants to play a game?
« on: December 15, 2013, 06:42:07 am »
I recently discovered a pen and paper RPG called Dungeon World which has some pretty neat and very flexible rules. I'm going to have some free time on my hands over the Christmas break (most of it after Christmas itself) so I figure if there is interest here I will run a game or two.

From what I've read of the rules so far they're very simple so even if you've never played an RPG before you're welcome to join. Post in this thread if you're interested or have questions.

I'm interested. Are you doing it in the forum or irc? And also, is it sort of like the d20 ruleset or no?

It would be on IRC and it does not use the D20 system.

It uses a much more free-flowing system where most things are resolved by rolling two six sided dice. When I say free-flowing I mean it doesn't even have RPG mainstays like rolling for initiative or even a turn order in combat. It looks pretty great tbh.

That...that sounds really cool! You do live on the other side of the pond, though, so I assume that whenever you host it will be a much less convenient time here cause of time zone silliness...what time were you thinking?

I am an huge pen and paper player, been playing D&D (and now Pathfinder) nearly weekly for over 30 years now. I would be interested depending upon how it's played. You doing play by post or something live?

He's doing IRC. So pretty much live, but text-based.

Yeah, I don't really like doing things that have rules and dice rolls play by post because things really tend to grind to a halt. Doing it over IRC also has the advantage of using a dice roller script.

What's the general setting for the game?  What would we need to do to write up a character?
Probably not a Goat, either.

Setting is generic fantasy. I'll probably just use bits of our existing forum setting because I'm lazy but no prior knowledge would be necessary.

To make a character, choose a class from bard, cleric, druid, fighter, paladin, ranger, thief, wizard, barbarian.

The game rules don't allow two of the same class in a party so pick something someone else hasn't already called dibs on. If someone takes one you really want then play rock paper scissors for it or something.

Make a post here reserving your class and then I'll go into the character creation process more (Spoiler: There's nothing to it, you just have to make a few small choices.)

Oh, word of warning, I'm going to be sticking to the letter of the rules in the book for this first time running the game and for some reason the book limits race by class (for example bards can only be human or elven, no dorf bards) so bear that in mind.

I call paladin if that's alright with everyone. If you really wanted it though, just say so and I'll take wizard.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I am ultimate super fighter!  Champion of the fight tournaments, and the greatest fighter to ever fight a fight contest!

On a side note, do you have the full rulebook somewhere for us to read it Sam?  They've got a bit of info in the character sheets on the website, but there's a lot that's unclear still.  Overall looks really neat so far.
