For those interested in hearing some actual play of Dungeon World, my podcast – Adventures From The Shed – is continuing in our campaign; Perils of Parandisi. We’re in iTunes, and you can find us on the website www.adventuresfromtheshed.com
Dungeon World is still my favorite rules system! The clean and quick style of the rules really lends itself to fluid entertainment without getting bogged down in number crunching and hunting for information on character sheets and rule books.
Our Dungeon World campaign – Perils of Parandisi – now has the Character Creation episode and the first actual play episode posted.

I’ve been away from the community for some time, but I’ve been continuing to run a Dungeon World game for over a year now. We finished one full campaign, with 4 of 5 characters reaching level 10 and having a great time! That same group has started a new campaign in the same world with new characters and it looks like it’ll be just as fun as the first.
I just love the Dungeon World system, and recently bought the book on Amazon. I hope Adam and Sage are getting profits from that.
In addition, I’ve started a podcast – Adventures From The Shed – where we kicked off the podcast by running through the D&D Starter Set, but we’re now starting to record a Dungeon World campaign. We release podcast episodes each Sunday, and the Dungeon World campaign will have the first episode released 11 Jan 2015. We’ll have Sidebar Podcasts where we talk about the system and introduce new players to DW, and we’ll have Adventure Podcasts for actual play.
I invite your feedback, and hope we entertain you 🙂

My local game shop, Big Robot Games, is hosting an all-night RPG event. It’s scheduled for 12 hours, 8PM on Oct 5, Saturday, until 8AM on Sunday Oct 6. I am running a Dungeon World table and already have my 6 players signed up for the session.
Two of the six players have played a DW session with me already, so they have a good idea of the game, but the other 4 are firmly entrenched in 3.5 so they will have to catch on as we go.
For such a long game, I have a couple thoughts regarding structure.
1 – I plan to split the session up into 3 parts, both for breaks and to let the characters level up, and probably do End of Session stuff at each break to let them resolve bonds and pick new ones, etc…
2 – Current expectation is to treat this as 3 or 4 “chapters” to the session, which should allow me to play an over-arching Front like a campaign, while still being in a one-shot real-world event.
3 – Because I will be playing with just the core classes, I will have 6 of the 8 covered at the start. This will either let me add another player or two as the night goes on, or let someone try a different class, switching at one of the breaks. Does anyone have thoughts (good or bad) with the idea of switching a class during a session like this?
I welcome your ideas and suggestions for this event! Ideas for a Campaign Front, themes, etc… are all welcome!

I’ll be running my first Dungeon World session at my local game shop, Big Robot Games, tonight. Really looking forward to it!
I purchased the PDF a couple months ago and I’ve been reading it (as well as online resources like this community) while thinking of how to put some of my adventure ideas into the framework shown in the rules. This is the only part of the rules where my brain isn’t working right yet.
I have the basic ideas I want to run with, including plenty of blanks and avenues to veer off on, but I think I’m just struggling with the official terms “Front, Danger, Grim Portent”.
I am going to run the game tonight, see how it goes, then probably be back here tomorrow with a recap and solicit some advice regarding where I should categorize what I ended up with.
Thank you to the posters here for the questions and answers that come up – it really helps!
