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 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!

comment Is the spell Soul Shackles dysfunctional?
That's fair! In this case though, it's a matter of intended effect rather than interactions, so it's far less important/useful to suss it out any more than you already have.

An alternative that bypasses the issue is to dump the spell and introduce a brand-new one with the same name and details but with the target line rewritten; essentially, errata'ing it yourself.
