my fantasy hack - Adventure World
« on: December 14, 2012, 05:24:48 AM »
I've been fairly unimpressed with the work of Dungeon World. To me, it just feels like the creators took some D&D concepts and applied the AW philosophy of GMing to the game. Which is fine, actually it's brilliant! But I personally dislike level-based RPGs. I never have enjoyed them despite the many years I've played some version of D&D. It's just easier, you know, to find gamers who know D&D and want to play that but aren't necessarilly interested in playing in some wild west horror, or samurai intrigue, or post-singularity sci-fi space opera game.

There are a lot of great things in Dungeon World, but I wanted to see a fantasy hack that bore a closer resemblance to Apocalypse World than to Dungeons & Dragons. So I decided to make my own. I've been posting what I've been writing (playbooks that I consider first drafts) for the past couple of weeks, and it only just occurred to me a few days ago that "Hey, I should probably join the AW forums and share some of my ideas there."

What can I say? I'm not too Sharp.

Anyway, here's a link to my blog that shows all the work I've done =

There's a lot there, or else I would just copy and paste it to the forums here. Cheers!
