I wanted to run a campaign set in the KH universe with a group of my friends. My main background with PBtA is Dungeon World but I have recently began looking at Apocalypse World 2.0 and Masks: A New Generation.
I had originally wanted to use basically a reflavored DW system, but after looking at the other PBtA games, I figured there might be a better way.
For stats I was thinking:
Body – For all things Keyblade combat
Mind – Spellcasting and such
Heart – Defensive stat and form changing
Light – Connections, Summonings, Dlinks, etc
Dark – Manipulation of Darkness or people themselves
For playbooks, I was considering do a simple base sheet that is expanded upon with compendium classes (Since everyone would basically be a Keyblade Wielder class).
Example: Everyone starts with a compendium class related to their highest stat and starting moves for that stat, but also can level up and take moves from the compendium class of their second highest stat. After 5 ish advancements, they can gain the compendium of their 3rd highest stat.
Everyone would have a base “Keychain” move that would represent their keyblade’s current form. I was thinking of a system where they can change their current keychain at any long rest and each keychain would come with specific tags added to a keyblade and possible come with one move as well.
This is sort of the starting base that I have come up with. I am not sure how in depth I want to be creating a whole new system from scratch since I just need something workable for a campaign with friends. Even current PBtA mechanics that could be reflavored to fit Kingdom Hearts could be good.
TLDR: I am just interested in how people would make Kingdom Hearts work in a PBtA style game.
