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 often should I plan for the players to make camp?
I know of at least one game that has an answer to this (Mouse Guard, and "exactly once per session," respectively), but you're right that Dungeon World is not one of them.

revised How can I imprison my characters for a long period of time?
it isn't: this could be done with plot, social agreement, or some other means, it isn't asking for help with a specific technique

Yeah, on a second reading this appears to suggest breaking some DW rules, and ignore or is unaware of other rules that would actually be helpful. This isn't expert advice.

@Zsolt The GM presents the world, including time. It's the players' job to decide what to do though, never the GM's job. They can make camp in the day or march through the night, up to them.

I can't tell if you're speaking from experience with Dungeon World, or just giving general GMing advice. If the latter, GMing DW doesn't work how you might be assuming.

Totally this. Planning for when the players may camp is not the GM's job at all. Nor is planning of any kind!
