  1. Eric Duncan​ I once had an NPC who was basically Batman in a game. He was pretty fun to put into situations. I also had a villain who was a former orc pit fighter and slave who I named Bane. He was leading a movement of orcs to put them into power over the other races. I had a plastic cup with me each game for doing the Bane voice. 🙂 (He had an armored collar that came up to the bottom of his nose to hide the scars his human master gave him)

  2. The owl is actually Old Brown

    “Riddle me, riddle me, rot-tot-tote!

    A little wee man, in a red red coat !

    A staff in his hand, and a stone in his throat ; If you’ll tell me this riddle, I’ll give you a groat.”

    Now this riddle is as old as

    the hills; Mr. Brown paid no

    attention whatever to Nutkin.

    He shut his eyes obstinately

    and went to sleep.

  3. A dark room, 30’x25′ with 20′ high ceiling and one small statute sitting in the middle. The statue is hard to make out from the door.

    There is no lighting other than the light beaming behind you from outside.

    Dust layers the floor

    What do you do?

  4. Anyone who said “owlbears” has no imagination or attention to detail. Why would owlbears be in there? They’re usually not sentient creatures, so someone would have had to have put them in there. Are they the king’s owlbear minions? Perhaps the door was created by the dwarves who dug into an owlbear alcove to keep them out. “Owlbears”, isn’t enough.

    Now, to the few of you who thought of something other than owlbears, I’d like to congratulate you. That’s what I like to see from players in Dungeon World.

    As for my answer, I know I’m late to the party, but I’ve just now seen this. I’d like to think that this door is tucked away under the old widow’s deck what’s inside is a family of anthropomorphic mice who worship an owl as a god and live off the scraps the old woman throws off her back deck for the squirrels. Most of the time, the squirrels don’t bother with her scraps, but when they do, epic battles between the factions last up to tens of seconds! Once every week, the mouse who has best proven their worth is chosen to seek out and meet the owl. It is believed by the mice of “Underdeck” that those who meet the owl are knighted and become his guardians of the great tree as they are never seen or heard from again. You are Steef, and you have proven yourself to be the most worthy. Go and meet the owl, young one. You have our blessing.
