Evidence of Living Dungeon World at Gamex 2012
« on: June 02, 2012, 09:33:12 PM »
Hey hey. So last weekend a few of us ran a scaled-down Living Dungeon World, and over the course of the next week or so I'll be posting some stuff about it on my blog, including pictures and a recap of the event (and the rest of the con).

First up: Pictures of the Big Board.

(For those not familiar with what that's all about, every time a fact about the world is established, whether thrown out by a player or GM or emergent through play, we write it down on a sticky note and stick it up on the Big Board. As the weekend progresses, we collaboratively build a setting together. This particular setting was pretty wacky, but totally in keeping with the premise of the weekend's fronts. Here are some pictures of the Big Board from the first LDW back at OrcCon in February.)

I Love love love this Mike! I so wish we could do this around here. Any Aussies up for a down under Living Dungeon World?
So damn cool. Were there any artistic artefacts of the weekend? Maps, portraits, that sort of thing? Did you keep the fallen in battle honour roll too?

I don't think we had any PC deaths this time around, thanks in part to random monster damage. (We had the players roll their own damage taken. I wash my hands of your potential death, PC!)

Not sure about maps, but we had some pretty cool visual aids and stuff that I'll post pictures of as well.

Mike, thanks for posting this. LDW was a blast. I can't wait until Augustine of Pellinore adventures once again. Also, I love how Isgoth the Slayer, who was basically a throw away in one of Augustine's paladinesque proclamations, became a huge owlbear in a later game.

I'd consider crossing the ditch for an Oceanic LDW.

BTW, Mike, I seem to recall I was supposed to be digging up some LDW photos from last time. Who was that for?

I think it was for inclusion in the Kickstarter's video, but that thing's done, so... never mind, I guess. (Hey, I didn't manage to get my pics to them in time, either.)

Speaking of which -- I'm still planning to recap LDW (and the full weekend) on my blog, but we're moving to a new city in a few days and life's just been too hectic to get to it. I'm going to be taking pictures of all the props we used too, because some of those (especially the XP cards) were pretty cool.

Oops! Sorry Sage and Adam!

I look forward to seeing the photos Mike. Which city? Closer to civilisation (i.e. Los Angeles), I hope!

It'll be time to start thinking about the September Strategicon soon... ;)

I wouldn't sweat it. That Kickstarter seems to be doing all right.

Have you priced five-bedroom houses closer to LA? That's a non-starter. No, we're moving to Temecula. Southeast of Irvine, closer to San Diego. Plenty of room, my own office, backyard for Ben... time to be grown-ups.

Yep. Right after July Comic-Con and August GenCon. But October's free... by which I mean that's my deadline to finish ARRPG, so not all that free, really.

Just as well we have LDW down to a fine art then ;)

(October is Big Bad Con too.)

Spoken like a man with no familial commitments!

Actually, October is traditionally the month when I get together with friends up in Washington State for what could be considered a very mini mini-con. But that's framed as "seeing old friends," not "gaming all weekend." It's both, really.
