I haven’t seen my son in about a month because I’ve been traveling a lot for work lately. But he called to talk for a bit while I’m out of town, and here are the DW-related highlights (he plays a wizard in a one-on-one game with me):
SON: You remember that rust monster thing I fought a couple months ago?
S: Could I use my ritual move to make rust arrows? So [his archer hireling] can destroy the [an order of Knights we made up]’s swords and armor?
M: Sure, but you’ll need some rust monster blood and some rust. Of course it’ll take several days of experimentation to get the enchantment correct and you’ll need to find a place of power. Plus he’ll need to be REALLY careful with them so he doesn’t destroy his own armor and stuff (because I run him mwahaha).
S: What if we dip them in wax? That way they’ll be safe to handle but the wax will crumble off when they hit something. I have some candles in my adventuring gear.
M: Yeah sure, that’ll definitely make them safe.
S: Cool! I can’t wait to play next time I’m over! Are there more rust monsters in that dungeon…
We talked for almost two hours, and a good 45 minutes of that was about DW. I love how a single monster he fought back in December spawned the idea for at least a couple more sessions. Right now he’s level 4, so it’ll be a while before he can take the Self Powered move, but I’m going to give him a chance to learn it early if he wants to go down that path so he can make his own place of power rather than finding one.
