Thank you for taking a look inside and considering having a game!
I am considering running a game of Dungeon World
, a relatively light system based game. Dungeon World is a fantasy adventure game, in the vein of Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, Elder Scrolls, Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft and many, many more. A story of adventurers venturing out and fulfilling their destinies, whatever they may be.You will not need a copy of Dungeon World to enjoy this game.
Play is mainly narrative
(free form), with a very small select number of actions reliant on a dice roll, I'll let you know when you need to roll if you're not sure about it. All rolls use 2d6 and follow a basic mechanic of 10-12 = pass, 7-9 = pass but something happens, 6 or less = fail, but gain 1xp by learning from your mistake. Different classes have different abilities and your attributes will decide any modifier to the basic roll.
The fun of Dungeon World is that the setting is made up by the players in-game
from questions given to them by the GM (me), answers will bring xp rewards along with the joy of being actively involved with an aspect of the world building! This means that the game will be yours
as much as mine, so I won't be listing setting information here because that will be decided by you!
This will be open to approved and unapproved members
, running adventures with characters who may come and go, so to handwave any player turnover that occurs. The game will be constantly chugging along whilst I am about to run it, it won't die if one player happens to vanish. Unless a reason is given to me to keep them in the story, any player who doesn't reply after one week will have their character written out of the story and the plot will be updated to keep the game going. This may bring a more episodic nature to the game, being more representative of a television series or a series of short novellas more than a film or large novel.
The world will be the main constant, though even that will expand and grow as more people come by and add something to it. Things will start small though eventually I hope for things to be epic in scope as the characters travel outwards and see more sights and run into more conflicts! Want a specific building or land as part of your backstory in the game world? Write it in and it's canon
! Whats more is you'll get a shiny experience point for doing it!
So, I am looking for people interested in writing such a game. There are a number of classes available to choose from. Because of the amount here, the game would suit having one person play one class at a time.Bard:
charismatic holders of lore who can cast spells from their performances.Cleric:
worshipper of a deity, they can petition their deity to gain spells and lore. They can turn the undead.Druid:
shapeshifts into animals, a kin to the spirits they need no food or water to live.Fighter:
wielder of an enchanted weapon, adept with armour and can use their strength to great effect.Paladin:
holds an aura of command, they can heal others through touch. They gain abilities through dedicating themselves to questsRanger:
expert hunters and trackers, they are adept with their bow and wield an animal companion.Thief:
Those who can see and disarm traps and greatly damage targets with a well-placed poisoned attack.Wizard:
A collector of spells for their book of magic, they can cast or dispel magic and are also expert ritualists.Races
There are four playable races in Dungeon World; Humans, elves, dwarves and halflings. Humans can be any of the above classes
. The other three races are a bit more limited. They can take the following;Elves
(Bards, Druids, Fighters, Rangers or Wizards)Dwarfs
(Clerics or Fighters only)Halflings
(Druids, Fighters or Thieves)
I can help with character creation if you do not own the system... Just tell me if you don't own the game and which race/class combo you like and I can help you create your character. Once you have your sheet, do feel free to include in your bio things that other players have added in theirs, it will help with Bonds, which are mutual ways your character is linked with the others and another way to get experience points in resolving these character arcs.
I will ask questions on backstories, every question answered that adds a bit to the world will net that character 1xp going into the game.
This is very much a game for those who like fantasy games and would love to see a detailed world evolve through play from blank canvass, where their additions become canon and a bigger picture gets realized. Where everyone gets a say and few things get turned down and ignored.All I need from anyone interested is to list under here what class and race they'd like. If you own Dungeon World, please also place your character sheet's details filled out in full.
