Tonight I’ve run Dw (not really my first time, I’ve had another couple of one shot game before), but I think I’ve messed up!
During character creation the players established that they were escorting a caravan, that The job was very well payed but they didn’t trust theyr employers, because part of the job (what do they hide in the wagon) was kept secret.
And here I messed things up. Sigh.
I tell them that during the journey the caravan was attacked and many were killed or driven off.
They were forced to flee, pushed toward a fetid swamp.
And then I asked: what do you do now?
So they start looking for a way to leave the swamp, facing the danger posed by the swamp itself (a malevolent-magic-sentient enviroment) and fight with some cultists (the cult was established by the players by rolling moves and asking them questions).
I just wanted to put them in a tense situation from the beginning (no prep at all) but the problem is that I feel I’ve ignored theyr first input (the escorting job, remember?).
So what now?
