This community is cracking me up. Does anyone actually play the Dungeon World game, and not one of the 100 different hack options I have seen? This isn’t me trying to rude, I am honestly amused as hell by this.

Thus far I have played Dungeon World RAW.
I am salivating as I project old T$R campaign worlds onto the Dungeon World engine.
I run out-of-the-box DW.
I’ll be offering to run vanilla DW as soon as the D&D 3.5 game I’m in now ends in a month or two. That being said, part of me does want to give Dragon World a silly try.
If everybody makes their own hack we’re cool with that. We want people to make stuff!
We basically do at Stratigicon, with the small changes we make for the Living Dungeon World play.
The beauty of Dungeon World is that it’s all about creating your own fiction.
Once people know what kind of fantastic world they want to play in, they can customize the moves to bring that flavour into everything they do, and make it their game! That we can share all our little bits and mods and hacks as strengthens and enriches the community. Playing DW is fun as hell, and it’s style of play is all about invigorating your imagination. I consider making custom moves, classes, and settings for DW to still be playing.
I am just amused. If I had a dollar for every post I have seen talking about someone hacking the game, I could…well have a really nice damn dinner.
Making your own custom stuff—even stuff related to a published setting for another game—is totally part of DW! That’s why we have a while chapter on making stuff.
For sure, I always felt like the hacking chapter in AW and DW was a mandate to build on the games’ foundations during play.
When you make fronts there’s a bit about making custom moves, that’s deliberate. Making, hacking, and modifying is part of the game.
Which isn’t to say you have to, of course. Just that we wanted to make a game where making new stuff was useful, easy, and fun.
Does anybody actually play the D&D game?
I think this is just reflecting what people want to talk about online. If you’re playing RAW, and you understand the rules, there’s not a lot to post about in a g+ community. If you’re interested in doing some hacking of the game, well… you probably want to get feedback from other people experienced with it, and an online community is a good place to do that.
in other words: i’m not sure i believe that what people talk about, in regards to an rpg, online is any kind of accurate reflection on what people are actually doing around the table with that rpg.
Really? I thought this was a Pen & paper RPG site where the folks like making dungeons. If I had to make a digital dungeon, I would use the Unity3d game engine.
I run DW as-is. I mean, I’m planning a *W hack sometime, but the DW game I’m running isn’t a hack at all.
I play Dungeon World as it is from the manual. Setting is our constant creation, like in Apocalypse World.
I mean, I know people play the game. Just all the hacking is everywhere. Some of it damn cool.
The game started off as a hack, so, you know. Surprise!
Yup. I’m running mostly stock Dungeon World. I may have created a custom move or two, but I’m not sure that counts as playing a hack.
The line between “RAW” and “hack” with DW is so fine as to be nearly microscopic.
