Haha I'm glad, I'll try to give everyone 1 at the start, but I'll also ask as it comes up in play sometimes too.

Remember Dungeon World's rule: Draw maps, leave blank spaces.
When I ask for world build-y stuff, draw me a map. Don't be afraid to give me some rules on how something works, but you don't need to make a codex describing exactly how every interaction works. Leave blank spaces for us to explore in play, too

Re: Dungeon World OOC
  1. Wistful has my back when things go wrong...
    Good friends are hard to come by.  Wistful has saved Faust from the brink more times than he can count.  He's always been honest, which makes Faust feel like he can trust the Swift traveler with anything.  If a decision hinges on Faust's opinion he's most likely to side with Wistful, even if it's against his own judgement.
  2. I stole something from Thistle...
    The Duskblades teach that power without humility is the path to destruction.  Such was the fate of Ereja in ages past.  Each member of the clan trains from an early age in the old way, culminating in a rite-of-passage hunt that symbolizes self-sufficiency.  Faust's hunt mistook the shape-shifted Thistle for a wild beast, which cost the druid an injury that now manifests as part of his "tell".  Though the injury isn't debilitating, Faust insists that he owes the kassau a debt nonetheless.

Good?

Looks pretty good to me. For #2, think a little on how that will resolve.
You shouldn't answer these here, but think:
What is the size of the debt you owe him?
What could you do to repay this debt?
How does this debt impact your relationship with Thistle?

Re: Dungeon World OOC
How many are there? Seasons tend to represent the areas claimed by the primordials. Areas to the north west, tend to have wet and dry seasons. Forestal areas tend towards Harvest and Rebirth, where Flat Top alters between Hot and Cold.
How quickly do they change? Wet and Dry seasons tend to alternate, roughly 45 days between each. Harvest and Rebirth, like the aging of old-trees takes longer, half a year between each. Hot and Cold seasons near Flat Top similarly take longer. The far east, beyond the moutains, where the Primordial of sky went so long ago remains ever a constant.

Do they always remain the same length? Typically yes, though variations have been reported.
Who or what is responsible for them? Generally the presence of the Primordials. Ereja's death removed the chaos of weather, which is generally only present now around when the second moon is due to rise.
What is your role in this rite? The rite, which can be invoked by any of the Nasseau prepares the plants and wildlife in the immediate area for change.

Re: Dungeon World OOC
Cordin will have a mane of leaves, the sides of his head close cropped, think like.. mullet-mohawk. Normally green or orange (depending on the season he is exposed to). Similarly his skin looks like textured leaf, due to his skinny nature, where you would normally see veins his appears more like the lines on a leaf. Where Faust had injured him his skin there and in the immediate area appears brown, dry and crinkled.

As far as bonds, I'm still waiting to see whom else will be joining us (if anyone?)...

I don't want to say THIS bond is for YOU and THIS one is for YOU and then a new PC shows up and I'm like oh no I wanna switch--

Mm. I had a feeling... Well, maybe we can hire help... a torchbearer or heavy-stuff-carrier or just a bodyguard or something...


Thistle trusted me with a secret: Wistful was fascinated by the rite of the Land and the secrets of the changing of the seasons that Thistle showed him... Wistful wants to learn more, at least one more secret of nature, but he marshals his impatience, understanding that these are the most holy things Thistle honors.


This is not my first adventure with Faust: Wistful likes Faust, thinks Faust is noble in the way he's trying to overcome the things people associate with Darkspores. Wistful is also marshaling his impatience when it comes to Faust, because he's tempted to talk to Faust about Noric. Not as a god... but more as a way of life-- the songs and ballads of Noric, and the wisdom and truth and peace of mind and heart that lie within them. He really feels Faust might have missed his calling and should've been a bard, but he won't say that. Other people's ways of life are a sensitive business, and he doesn't want to risk pushing too fast...

Looks good.

For number 2, the second half sounds like it should be a separate bond from the first half

  • I trust him to have my back."
  • I know I can trust his skills."
  • I know he will not hurt me."
  • I know I can use him."



Think about what adventuring with him has lead you to feel about him. Trust? Incompetance? Putting a stinger on like the examples above will make it actionable and resolvable. How has adventuring with Faust changed your view on him than if you just met up for this quest?

I would say "I know I can trust his skills" would fit best... but then what? That doesn't exactly seem likely to change in the future... Or can it "resolve" if it's proven RIGHT...? Maybe that's what I'm missing...

Re: Dungeon World OOC
Yea resolved bonds are bonds that are no longer actionable, or a shift in the relationship happens. Possible resolutions include:
  • Faust's skills fail you in a moment of need
  • Your relationship with Faust changes where instead of trusting his skills, X is how you would define your relationship now
  • You begin to trust someone else's skills more
  • That bond simply plays out. You put your faith in his skills, he succeeds, and now the bond is no longer actionable. You know you can trust him, that just becomes part of your relationship.

Okay, I dig those two. I'll just have two bonds for Faust.

I'll tinker with them, and then save them on my sheet in just a second...

Let's proceed!

Re: Dungeon World OOC
so, based on the narrative about the new age, are the Primordials and Avatars of the past gone? Or are they still present?

Re: Dungeon World OOC
so I think the seasons explanation needs a slight modification regarding the rite.

Nasseau all over the world, various types etc, believe they bring about the change in the seasons, fulfilling the role the primordials once had. I would think that perhaps other peoples would think them as crazy or out there, perhaps our reference to them would be pagans of old celtic variety (or something). doubters would claim that the Nasseau had nothing to do with the changing of the seasons, while they in turn claim that without the rites the world would never see any change.

Re: Dungeon World OOC
Bond: I've shown Wistful a Secret Rite of the Land
   The rites are as old as my people, we herald in the change in the seasons, there is no task more important to I or my people.

Bond: The spirits spoke to me of a great danger that follows Faust. I'm going to modify this I think to "great unnatural danger".

Re: Dungeon World OOC
Question: Racial Move - I believe the Kassau, being of the forest I see them as being more like Elves, and the racial move for Druids for Elves would make sense. Is this acceptable?

The sap of the elder trees flows within you. In addition to any other
attunements, the Great Forest is always considered your land.


This would allow, also, for me to declare "attunement" to the type of land/area where Duskhaven is located, which honestly, for the life of me I can't figure out where that is.

So question 2: Where is duskhaven?

For Narrative purposes:
The sap of the elder trees and your blood is one and the same. In addition to any other
attunements, the Great Forest is always considered your land.


As for the Land that Duskhaven would be in, you tell me. I would say Whispering Plains or Blasted Wastelands, but as the Druid, tell me what the lands around you look like.

Re: Dungeon World OOC
Whispering Plains - a fertile ground to ground things, large roaming areas for domesticated animals for meat sources. Something that would easily support a civilization. I think that as large as a civilization Duskhaven is becoming it wouldln't put down roots willingly in a blasted wasteland.

Re: Dungeon World OOC

Looks like it's gonna want a vow from each of us.

Can Wistful and Faust understand that yet, or will Thistle have to explain to us IC that he's probably free to go in now and that we'll have to make our own vows?

You can understand that. When it comes to small things that your characters would share, I don't think we need to have text explaining it, as that gets repetitive. That being said, if you are keeping something secret, make sure to say so, or post that you do not share this information.

Okay good.. I think so too... I was only uncertain because of the time I did Spout Lore and had to tell the others IC
