Dungeon World: The Gunner

The Gunner is locked and loaded. This flexible class not only lets you outfit a gunslinger-type character, but also lets you roll out something more akin to a gunner from Tera, or the heavy and sniper classes from Team Fortress 2. You choose how your gun was built (magic, flesh, or some sort of pseudo-science), how […]

Dungeon World: The Fighter

The Fighter is geared up and ready to go. Like The Bard and The Druid, Melissa and I were pretty dissatisfied with the default interpretation of the fighter, so we decided to yet again make our own that does what we want. Rather than being largely defined by a single piece of equipment, […]

Trick-or-Treat: The Mummy

The final feature for our Trick-or-Treat sale for this year is The Mummy. This class is unique in that you’re largely unkillable: barring extraordinary measures you’ll come back to life, you just might be missing pieces or possessions, or it could take you quite some time to recover.

4Ward/FrankenFourth Playtest

A few players had to again cancel our A Sundered World campaign, so I figured Melissa and I could run through a playtest of yet another game we’re working on. This one uses elements from our dice-pool dungeon crawler (like simple-yet-flexible characters), and various editions of Dungeons & Dragons (mostly the d20 mechanic and simplified skill ranks). She suggested […]
