Just finished Father’s Day present part I – dungeon world with wife and son. He plays hawlyr the son if the prince of the otherworld realm of Gilliad. My wife plays Jonah a reclusive ranger on hard times. Hawlyr must get Jonah (who is really a half elf) back to Gilliad to pass the test to see which one will be the prince. The problem: some dragon whelps (the boy said 10 and I about fell out my chair) thought the crystal door was treasure. The court of Gilliad closed the door. They need to recover the crystal and find a new place for the door. A fight with goblins in the mountains started off the game. Some questions – how do they get the door to the one part if the keep that leads to the cave where the crystal portal is?
I am not making fronts yet- think we are still in first session mode. The wife is getting into more than any other game (she really doesn’t like RPGs).
Best moment of the game when the boy made his light spell on the tree and made it a black light to scare the goblins.
Deepest moment of the game when I ask the wife what the name of her dog. None – Jonah has lost too many things – he doesn’t want to get attached again.
Good first session.char creation was tough at first and thought we were going ditch the game but about halfway through they started to get into it and we had a good session once the ideas started flowing.
Prep consisted of what is your favorite monster. That was it. The wife and boy remembered some caves from a documentary where you have to go down natural chimneys that are hundreds of feet in the dark. Also they suggested that the nearest heading had been abandoned because of the mother dragon! They jus keep it coming!
