I’m thinking of running a Dungeon World game with some friends in the future. DW seems aligned towards campaign-style play, so there will be some planning to do to keep a long-term perspective I guess.
Anyway, on to a question I have: How often should I call for a roll from the players? How many rolls do other GMs request from their players? When I tried a one-session game of Dungeon World previously (didn’t finish the scenario) one player commented that “there was a lot of dice rolls”. It made me wonder a bit about how many rolls are appropriate. Generally I tried to keep the tests constrained to “challenging tasks” and combat, but even that made rolls come up every 5 minutes or so.
So, how often do the dice roll in your group? Would you prefer that there were more or less tests?
