FrankenFourth: Meet the Cleric

If you want to see more details on what I’m talking about in this blog post, check out the FrankenFourth alpha document. It’s got all the cleric stuff, plus a bunch of other stuff. In most editions of Dungeons & Dragons, cleric “magic” operates under the same pseudo-Vancian system that wizards […]

Dungeon World: The Paladin

The Paladin is now on sale! It has been added to our All of the Playbooks, Adventuring Party, and Alternative Class bundles. As with The Bard, The Druid, The Fighter, and now even The Cleric, The Paladin isn’t merely a half-hearted/assed reskin: it’s a considerably different take on the concept. Though it’s still a […]

FrankenFourth: Lance of Faith

While prepping for a 10th-level-one-shot-kill-a-dragon-playtest, I realized that clerics that don’t specifically focus on the War, Fire, and/or Thunder Domains have only situational usefulness in combat (which we probably would’ve realized sooner if almost all of the playtest clerics didn’t pick the War Domain). A 5th-level fighter going down the Slayer/Sundering tree […]

A Dungeon World Character Sheet That You Can Use

A week or so ago Melissa was tagged in a post on G+, in which someone asked Adam if they could use the new Dungeon World character sheet layout (which was still bad despite taking over a year to finish). The answer was both surprisingly and bewilderingly no: you’re stuck using the horrible “classic” sheet, […]

Dungeons & Delvers Cover

Melissa finished coloring the cover for Dungeons & Delvers (though I’ll probably add some more linework), so now I got a neater image to use for blog posts, the community, and most importantly the actual game. Let us know what you think. Why frog-man? Because people demanded frog-man, I guess based […]

Bare-Bones Backgrounds

In the rare instance that I actually get to play a role-playing game, for several reasons I usually don’t bother with a “deep” backstory, if I even consider a backstory at all. First, there’s the whole character death thing. I know certain groups of people loathe the idea of their excessively […]

Divine Intervention

Triggered in a totally not-Tumblrina-way by Timothy’s blogpost about clerics, I wanted to talk about what I don’t like about the traditional/classic portrayals of clerics in Dungeons & Dragons, and how I aim to fix it in FrankenFourth and Dungeons & Delvers (and to a point already did in Dungeon World). At the core of […]
