Hi everyone! I’m putting down something about a new Thief playbook since it was asked-on the italian DW community- about a more fictional version of this class which I’ve personally always loved.
I think there’s yet a lot to do, but I want to share with you one of the starting moves and maybe discuss about it.
Some take-home messages before posting the move:
. the class “plays” a lot with points: Stealth, Notoriety, Resources will have multiple effects on fiction based on how they’ll be spent
. on the italian community I left the drive link for taking a look whenever you want. Problem is it’s all written in italian so this can be quite an issue :/ however, this is the link https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uQramWnYDv8hYBxs2-c113xblOVSFZiX8qwDJfV6oTo/edit?usp=sharing
. As for what I said before, when the class will be over, I’m gonna upload on Drivethru in PWYW so, if someone of you is available to make a revision for english issues and mistakes, she’s gonna be on the credits 🙂
Here’s the move (sorry for grammar!)
I GOT THIS
When you sneakily approach a target unaware of your intentions, declare a goal (eg, pickpocket, stun him, poison his mug, eavesdrop, …). Each action is allowed but the GM will assign you one or more of the following conditions:
. you will have to create a diversion
. it will be easily traceable to you (increase your Notoriety)
. you will need ___ /the help of ____
. you will have to settle for a minor result
. will require special care (spend 1 stealth or Defy Danger instead)
. you need some time
[Then, roll+DES: With 10+, tell how you reach your goal. With a 7-9, face an unexpected consequence: take -1 next.]
Let’s talk abot this.
As you can imagine, I was inspired by one of my favourite DW move, this is, Ritual from the Wizard. In the original version, the options you can read were different; instead, there was what now it’s written in the [….]. The fact is I was afraid of a too powerful move but I also thought that even the Ritual move has a basic condition (A place of power/ in this case you must approach sneakily and the target be unaware of what you want to do) plus some conditions in addictions without the need to roll for another unexpected consequences. So I changed the options and put that roll dice in [_____] for thinking whether I should keep or not.
What do you think?
As from the chat with Robert Doe in the comments, I wrote an early english version for you to keep an eye on the upcoming moves and let me know your thoughts 🙂 Of course any Language review or grammar mistake noticing will be appreciated as well 😀
At the moment, I’ve just translated the starting moves. Time after time, I’ll go with the Others 🙂
