Character doodle of two of my players
Spellslinger and fighter
Yesterday I ran a DW session for 5 newbies, not just to DW but to RPGing
And they loved it! We sat in sunny beer garden and played for about 4 hours, 1.5 of which was a quick chat about “fiction first” and “triggering a move”
They all got it and spent just over an hour making characters and making the world (I had them each draw where they came from on a blank sheet of A3) and mixing up their back stories and bonds
They all said the bonds part was one of the fave parts of character creation
And we were off meeting up a year after thier last quest together, they enjoyed drinks and then in thier hangovered state checked the wanted posters and went off on an adventure!
(They traveled, fought goblins, 2 wild blink dogs – that were super scary they said) and chased after a cart that left no tracks?!
All of them can’t wait to play again, even 1 who was a bit of a “tag along girlfriend” but she loved it especially being bonded with another player and clashing with her BF’s character
So happy, made me love GM’ing and DW is brilliant for newbies
(Other characters are, Druid, ranger & thief)
