Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR. Particularly fond of GMless and short-form games because they suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment Monsters with negative HP
FYI the Fiend Folio did feature many creatures originally appearing in White Dwarf (being from the same publishers), so it's not so crazy as it first sounds.

Bat in the Attic has a good list here that I can't add much to. The Primer is a great non-blog start, then Grognardia and Philotomy's, then everything else.

This might seem like an "easy out" answer, but blogs really are the way to go. They were hugely useful to me when I was rediscovering the old-school playstyle.

General "how do I do this edition when I'm used to that edition" is ok, "any and all tips" is too broad a scope

Good god, you're playing with siblings and you didn't say so? That's not a small detail. That's a completely different question!

So we understand better, why is getting a new group not an option? That'd be my first solution.

add [social] tag; copyedit for readability, and clarity of question

comment Dual strike or fighting with two weapon in Dungeon World?
No, you can do things that you don't have a move for; you just get only the benefits of moves you can trigger. See this question for how to handle fiction that is covered by a move you don't have. Zachiel's has the right of it mostly, just you don't get a bonus to damage unless you set yourself up with a +Forward first through another move.

Since we're a Q&A site and not a forum, it's never too late to submit a good new answer! To improve this as a standalone answer though, could you briefly describe how the software could support this use? Even if it's trivial, a description helps. :)
