Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds from B/X to D&D 5e. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons for both trad and indie games. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment How long does damage resistance granted by Wish last?
+1. And maybe add something to the end like "And this makes sense, because full immunity to a spell of your choice is more valuable, powerful, and rare than damage resistance."

crucially: why they're on the sheet is convenience

cut down and move the context (with which we cannot help) to the end; front-load the actual research issue that is the current problem to be solved

comment How to GM for a player who knows none of the tropes Dungeon World relies on?
"Paladin", "oath", "holy symbol", Christian crusading, angels, the Abrahamic model of god(s), cosmic good vs evil, fantasy, medieval history—in a word, "everything." Imagine someone who has dedicated their life to visual arts and has shut out everything not directly incorporated into their art. I tried to emphasise in the Q that it's the tropes DW uses to communicate flavour, genre, and character theme, not the ones I may or may not be using.
