Dungeon World / Glorantha World ?
« on: June 19, 2012, 04:47:24 PM »
I'm pondering a conversion of DW to fit one of my favourite settings, Runequest's Glorantha, however it strays quite a bit from standard fantasy rpg tropes.

Most of the character classes would fit I think, cleric as a low powered rune priest / dedicated follower. Reskin wizard a little to fit the setting. Now I'm almost wishing we had the barbarian ( although the druid is awsome ) - might be able a wrangle the ranger as Praxian types.

One thing that's got me thinking is magic - almost everyone has access to some basic forms of magic such as bladesharp to boost damage, a little healing or armour boost.
Would these best be represented as generic moves which anyone could take ?

Membership of a cult is pretty univeral, but I figure that could be represented by bonfs, or maybe an alternative to alignment.

These are just my first thoughts. Any comments ?


Dungeon World / Another DW newbie

Just finished reading the DW beta ( thanks Adam for giving me access  ), looking very good - I feel even more justified in bumping my pledge for the softcover.
I was pretty much burnt out on fantasy rpgs, but this might just be rekindling the flame.

The classes seem solid, not sure if I want more spells available to the cleric and wizard, although I guess they should be pretty easy to add. The Druid looks like fun, wish I could play it but I'm always the dm :(.

The APs on the forum have helped a lot in my understanding ( thanks guys ), I may try and convince my wife to play a few sessions - we haven't done any 1 to 1 in an eternity. It does seem geared for more players, but someone ( can't remember who sorry ) did suggest bonds to other people / organisations - I'm thinking a church, local lord etc which should work just as well.
