One thing I’ve been wondering about with regard to Dungeon World and PbtA games in general: there are lists of character names on all the playbooks, lists of steading names, lists of NPC names, etc. Are GMs/players breaking the rules if they don’t pick names from those lists, or are the names just meant as suggestions/framing devices for coming up with similar names, etc.? I’ve always told people the second one, but I want to make sure that’s right.
Also, are GMs only supposed to choose from the listed options during Front creation, or can they make up their own Dangers and such? Again, I would assume the second option, but knowing Adam Koebel’s feelings about playing RAW, I figured it was worth asking.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
