IC: Into the Heart of the Dragon (Modified DW) Sandbox
So I've wrote a lot of rules for Dungeon World, and I've always had this thing in the back of my mind where I wanted to either run or play a scenario involving players being inside a dragon big enough to eat villages whole and seeking to get out. It's likely that there will be houserules on the following subjects

  • Backstab (it's a new move that allows me to avoid having to determine inane stuff like surprise)
  • Bonds (they kill pbp AWE games. I want them to not)
  • Coins (I'm thinking of abstracting them to +Wealth)
  • Mass Combat (I wrote a lot of rules for it, and don't plan on using most of them, but it might come up after the party kills/escapes the dragon)
  • Material and construction tags, and some clarifications on meaning of tags.


I also don't use fronts. There are dangers, but there are no explicitly stated impending dooms or grim portents. I suppose technically being inside a dragon imposes one impending doom and a few grim portents, but other than that, my game will be entirely sandbox. I don't consider fronts "playing to find out what happens" I consider them "play to determine how that thing you wrote down manifests". The fact that they get wrote "after the first session" doesn't change a thing in that regard. Events happen outside the scope of the players but they only hear about them randomly and they're not based on the existence of fronts.

TL:DR- This is a thread about gauging interest for my DW idea, not about whether I'm doing fronts wrong. If you think I am, move along. If you are interested in an adult DW game (for language, once you get outside the dragon, the world map is comically obscene) Let me know.

Also I have some rules on Load derived from Ned's Hed having 1 wt. and a potential player that is almost remiss if nobody has a chance to drag a corpse back to town. I'll be looking for at least 5 players.

It occurs to me that potential players don't know if they will end up stuck with core classes or what. Character creation materials as follows:
  • Core Playbooks are permitted, but not Barbarian or Immolator. I don't like them.
  • Class Warfare is permitted.
  • Other playbooks are very case by case, provided I have access to them.

So I got a couple potential interested off site, if anyone here is, it's here: link to another game

Currently mature, but if I get only those eligible for adult access, it will be adult.
