So I’d just like to share one of the greatest, strangest, weapons I have seen used in a DW session yet.
Are you ready for this?
Last night, I ran a Hangout game where the Human Monk of the party went up against the prized champion of a barbaric stronghold: a midget named Milo with far too many elbows.
Toward the end of the match, when the Monk, of course, defeated the barbarians’ prized champion, the Monk kept beating on Milo, even after he was down, and the Elven Initiate of the party thought this act was too dishonorable and poked at the Monk’s stomach (triggering the Sublime Understanding of the Body move) with his animal-style grip – causing the Monk to vomit all over the limp and disabled Milo.
Well, from the crowd of people watching, Milo’s thugs, of course, came out to defend him; and the Monk, still throwing up over Milo, grabbed some vomit in his hands (effectively using a new weapon and triggering the Iron Lotus move) and threw it in the thug’s eyes, blinding and disabling him.
It was a really great scene – the whole Milo fight.
Just thought I’d share. 🙂
That’s also an example of the first bit of PvP I’ve ever seen in a DW game too. 🙂

laugh Love it.
Lol. Funny, yet remarkably clever. 🙂
Yep, it was a lot of fun. I also used the unconscious body of Milo as a human shield, picking him up and using the Defend action to redirect the guard’s attack at him instead of me! 🙂
Tom Miskey Players are creative. In your case scary as well 😉
LOL, I love playing the Initiate, I think of all the kung fu movies I’ve seen and just go for that in the game! From bouncing wall to wall to climb like Jackie Chan to crippling limbs or sickening through nerves and pressure points like some shaolin Vulcan, it’s all possible in DW!
Oh yes, we’re talking about the same Elf Initiate who disabled a Hill Giant’s legs, causing a massive boulder he was holding up to crash down on his head, knocking him out. This is also the same Elven Initiate who disabled a griffin’s legs and used it to hang glide into another flying griffin.
Tom Miskey said Wo is trying to prove that his martial arts are superior to everyone else’s.
I think he’s proving that so far. 🙂
I’m certainly trying, as that’s his motivation! He also ran across the surface of a lake, out-crocodile deathrolled a crocodilian, and dislocated the wing of another griffon so that our Gladiator could finish it with a knife through the head. Among other things… 🙂
Misha Polonsky I love how one-shot-kills can’t even ruin this game. 🙂
Bastien Wauthoz played a druid in one of the games I GM’ed, and he shapeshifted to a hippo midair, and landed on a halfling. I didn’t ask him to roll damage because hippo on a halfling.
Kasper Brohus Yep, if anything – you’ve just gotta find a way to make it work with the fiction.
A hippo landing on a halfling… sounds like a side show attraction or something. 🙂 That’s awesome!
Misha Polonsky The conversation was pretty funny:
Druid: “Can I shapeshift midair?”
Me: “I don’t know, does the move say anything about how long it takes to shapeshift?”
Druid: “Ehh, no…”
Me: “Well, it’s your character. Can you shapeshift fast enough?”
Druid: “Yeah, sure!”
Me: “What are you shapeshifting into?”
Druid: “A hippo. One with scales!”
Kasper Brohus That’s too funny! I absolutely love the Druid. So fun to play!
