Where to start with Goblin World
« on: May 12, 2011, 05:54:04 AM »
A quick note of clarity on where to start with this hack:

I originally wrote this hack because the version of Dungeon World (DW) at the time was limited for what I wanted to do, particularly by escalating HP. When DW rules changed I wrote a stretch goal for the Kickstarter called Dungeon World: Number Appearing. If you want a mixed group including humanoids, liches, vampires, etc then DW is the way to go.

However, we still play these Goblin World rules (which are not based on DW) when we play purely humanoids because the move types, The List and The Master mechanics, and the flavour of Forest Lurkers suits us better. The current version of Goblin World is "Backstabbed by an Extortionist" which was released 10 July 2011.

There's also a Fiasco Playset in the threads.

Steroid also included a scenario based on Goblin World in his innovative Ingenero game system, which is over here: http://ingenero.wordpress.com/

Previous versions of Goblin World:
- The playtest version "Axe to the Eye" is was released February 2011.
- The original version I wrote in a day is in the "Goblin World" thread, but I've made a bunch of improvements through the other versions since then.
