Guys. Ran my first DW session last Friday. I come from a background of F20 (a la Robin Laws). I was pretty proud that I resisted the urge to have them do “perception” checks to just see stuff. Instead I invoked moves like: “Show signs of an approaching threat” (You glance back and see a couple goblin heads peeking around the corner) and “Reveal an unwelcome truth”.
But I have one character who is a Druid.
The Druid is from the Towering Mountains, and chose to shapeshift into a Bear. Do I need to come up with a move on the spot for the animal he changes into? From reading the Shapeshifter move, it sounds like yes. So I gave him Trample and Thick Furry Hide. Trample: if he does damage to an opponent in Hack and Slash, he knocks them down. Thick Furry Hide: means he has +1 armor if he takes damage until he rolls a 6- in Hack and Slash. Now that I think about it, the Hold 3 or Hold 1 would automatically limit Thick Furry Hide, and I can take away the clause about “until he rolls a 6-” Comments? I feel like those are still a bit too F20.
