I’m new to DungeonWorld, our group just finished playing through a couple first sessions in our starting-dungeon. Tomorrow night, we’re going to play again. However, that first dungeon is more or less “finished”. While there are areas they have yet to explore, they have found the tome they were sent to find and cleared out the goblins. I expect they will be headed back to the nearby town to claim their reward.
By asking questions and building on answers, we’ve learned that the area is threatened by the return of an elder dragon, and further to the East, the arcane city that a couple other characters are from is threatened by some lizardman tribes of nearby swamps. From those, I have roughly built out two Fronts.
So… now what?
I know I shouldn’t be overly concerned with “planning” this next session, but I’m paranoid that we’ll have a dull session “in town”, and I feel like I should be building towards something.
How do the experienced DW GMs handle a bit of downtime? Do you have ques for further Action up your sleeves? Any ideas on how to spice things up and portray a fantastic world filled with adventure (outside of a dungeon)?
