Hello! I find myself in the mildly terrifying position of running Dungeon World game in person on Sunday, without actually having already played it! While I’m sure that session will go fine, I’d love to hop into a one-shot as a player this week and get some insights into the game. I’m free evenings CST this week, except for Thursday and Friday. Thanks for reading this!

  1. Don’t know what to tell you. I jumped in the water once I saw how it was played in a YouTube video. I haven’t looked back since. I can say that I made mistakes along the way, but as long as the story kept moving my players didn’t mind since they were learning as well. We got it down by working out the system and going back to the core rules and using the examples. Still learning how to create stuff, but combat and social combat came easiest. Do as suggested: one of each, basic moves and special moves for each player, and for you – refer to them often (repetition is the mother of memorization lol). Also, two copies of the character sheets (one is for you to use instead of asking players what’s on the sheet – you can suggest moves easier). Enough dice, paper, pencils, for everyone, etc. Take your time. Most players don’t read core books till they’re convinced they actually like the game, so everyone is learning too. I’m sure you’ll do an excellent job!

  2. I should clarify that I’m not new to running/playing tabletop RPGs, just Dungeon World. I’m hoping to get a bit of play in beforehand to unprogram me of those D&D-isms that don’t hold in DW to make the transition a bit smoother.

    Joshua Faller I’m checking it out now, thanks!

    Rocky Perez That’s nice to hear. I might be making a mountain of a molehill here! Do you have a link to that video?
