I like programming, boardgames and RPG's.

I run a blog about roleplaying and being a GM called Partial Success.

comment What is a challenge to a Perfect character?
This is not an answer in itself, but conflict is not exclusively a matter of success or failure. It is better generalized into action and consequences. Put them into meaningful situations, where they have a choice between two things they want, but getting both is impossible. And make it a really, really painful choice.

Rendering a player helpless might dangerous for the friendship between player and GM, if not handled properly. Use such options with caution.

comment Monsters of Encounter Levels below 1 in Legend
The myriad rules seems interesting. I was hoping for a creature track called "horde" or something though, with rules fitting the flavor.

comment What do you do in Dungeon World when someone wants to perform an action they don't have a move for?
It might be beneficial to note that rolling 6 or below on the Defy Danger roll above doesn't necessarily mean that he doesn't plow down the door. It just means that the situation is likely to have complications. Taking damage is one, plowing through and stumbling into a room right between three hungry trolls is another. "Put them in a spot" ;)

@Ryno I do believe that everyone would be a lot happier, if things were discussed beforehand, instead of just punishing players arbitrarily.

comment Do “Forwards” Stack?
I don't think this fits in the answer, so I'll put it here: Forget everything you know about how stuff usually work in rpg's, at least when reading through DW. Assume nothing! I suspect that your question stems from exposure to D&D, where it is important for different bonuses to have different "types" before stacking. You can have only one of each "stat" in DW, but every frickin' bonus adds. Unless otherwise stated, of course :)

comment How does “failure” work in Dungeon World? How does it move the story forward?
@aslum +1. Dungeon World seems to be more about making choice than making rolls. Great for story, less so for simulation. But I guess simulationists will prefer other systems anyway :)

comment Increasing ranges due to high level in Legend
@Ryno Is does, agreed, but only because the location of your character on the grid is an abstraction. In this game, apparently, your placement on the battle grid signifies the center of your circle of influence, in contrast to regular D&D . In there, your characters position is less abstract, according to the rules.

This is more in the spirit of DW I guess. I now realise that my question was in fact nonsensical :)

Nevermind, this answer is great. I guess I was just unimaginative :)
