Spent most of high school building an RPG ruleset that still gets thoroughly broken every time I take it out to play, but worked fine for a three year campaign anyway. Mostly playing D&D 3.5 since then, but I like to try out lightweight systems for one-shots as often as I can.

Bonus points for finding the villain's monologue notes prior to him attempting to deliver it. :)

comment How do I prevent retreating to rest and heal from being tedious?
@TimLymington Less than you'd think- remember, there are still rests that can be taken, but there's an impetus to use them sparingly. It's mechanically similar to a limited number of health/mana potions- you just don't know exactly how many potions you have sometimes.

They're traveling along a line of small ruins built in enemy territory picking up macguffins, each about a week apart. I treated going from one to the next as being a different journey- was that a mistake? (Not that that would save them- they picked up about a dozen hirelings at one of the ruins who were without supplies, and it's feeding those that's eating into their resources.)

Is getting new spells related to the Make Camp move? Both cleric and wizard mention they need an hour or so of quiet, and Make Camp triggers when you hang out for "more than an hour or so" but I assumed they were two unrelated moves happening at the same time. Make Camp mentions that you'd do it to prepare spells, but neither Commune nor Prepare Spells mentions needing food. That makes sense to me fictionally, but I don't quite have system mastery of DW yet. Your take?

comment Danger and Location Moves in Dungeon World
The last paragraph is from the rulebook, and two questions are being asked. However, both questions are about the same line in the rulebook, and stem from the same confusion- the idea that location and danger moves are somehow different than monster moves. They aren't, but that's a reasonable mistake given that location moves aren't actually detailed anywhere I can find.

@MilesRout Er... On behalf of my country, I apologize? Don't look at me man, I was raised in Canada. Though I always thought the most American game was stargazergames.eu/games/badass

comment RPG With Character Moral Growth and Corruption?
@Airk I think morality is mechanically central in DitV, even if there is no literal light/dark side slider. The escalation mechanic is a large part of the tactics of the game, and IMO the question "I disagree with this guy over X and can't talk him out of it, does that mean it's okay to shoot him?" constitutes a sizable chunk of morality. And after all, D&D gets decidedly more morally complex when you remove the morality meter.
