Dungeon World

Ed will be GMing Dungeon World, an indie fantasy RPG. It won boardgamegeek.com's "Golden Geek" Award for Best RPG 2012. Dungeon World combines the "old school" flavor of dungeon-crawling, D&D-style adventure with "new school" game mechanics that are fast, flexible, and emphasize narrative, character development, and collaborative storytelling. In other words, AWESOME.

This is a continuation of a game Ed started a few weeks ago; he wants a deeper cast of characters. (Note 1) If you were in that game, we'll have the same characters and world.

It's going to be potluck-style, and I'm capping this thing at six, so plan accordingly!

(Note 1: I am a sucker for posting this instead of making Ed do it. This is probably the last time.)

    Hi Everybody - couple of things:

    1. Arlington Central is less than a half mile from both Ballston and Virginia Square Metros.

    2. I snagged the Auditorium, which is a huge space. We won't be crowded like last time, but we do have a hard stop time of 4 -- someone else has the room.

    3. I moved Joe from the Wait List to a "Yes" - we're not at too many yet, and we could always use a fighter.

    See you all Sunday!

      Though it occurs to me - Ed leaving doesn't mean the party has to break up. We could RP without a GM, we just wouldn't want to have die rolls....

      For what it's worth - I'd rather end the session when our dm leaves. Y'all can certainly continue to hang out and do whatever, but I too have other things going on and would appreciate it if the "canon" of the adventure conclude at 4.

    @Rob-You do not have to roll a new character; I've got...plans, for your Bard. However, you may make a new character, if you'd like to.

    That applies to everyone; if you'd like to try something different, feel free to on Sunday. In addition to Dungeon World's core classes and the Warlock, I have approved four community-made classes: the Artificier, the Fortune Teller, the Noble, and the Knight. I have also approved the third-party class remake of the Wizard: the Mage.

      what differentiates the wizard from the mage?

    • Ed G.

      If you guys want to email me those playbooks ([masked]) I'll look them over and allow them for play.

      @Michael The mage is a more "free-form" magic-user...his spells aren't strictly defined like a Wizard's.

    Hey, this place is actually right next to two metro stops.

    Totally excited to come! I was thinking - if it helps the story, we can change my bard character into an NPC and I can play someone who follows the group better.
