We are in the final hours of the Codex Volume 1 Kickstarter campaign. If you love Dungeon World, this book is a must have. And I’m not exaggerating here. In addition to all the amazing Dungeon World content in the first 13 issues of the Codex zine (which is what’s inside the Volume 1 book), we have hit a stretch goal that let’s us include the Discern Realities Annual, a 39-page zine chock full of terrific Dungeon World content that was created in conjunction with the popular Discern Realities podcast.
In terms of Dungeon World stuff, the book will have over 170 total magic items, custom moves, and monsters; 8 compendium classes; and 7 adventure starters.
And, of course, there is a ton of system-agnostic fantasy stuff in the book, plus original games and other material.
The book is going to be really special, but there isn’t much time left to back it. Do not hesitate: check out the link below!
The Codex Volume 1 Kickstarter is live! The book we are creating will have a HUGE amount of Dungeon World stuff in it (Dungeon World being a very popular game in The Gauntlet community, which is Kickstarting the book).
By my count, there are 116 total of magic items, monsters, and custom moves, 1 compendium class, and 6 adventure starters. If we can hit the first stretch goal, we will be able to include the 40-page Discern Realities Annual in the book, which bumps those numbers up to 173, 8, and 7 (respectively).
That’s a lot of Dungeon World stuff.
The book will have all sorts of other amazing things in it, too. The Codex zine is a really, really special product. We hope you’ll take a look at the campaign today!
So, over at The Gauntlet, we run a whole heck of a lot of games every month.
So, over at The Gauntlet, we run a whole heck of a lot of games every month. At the moment, we have 214 sessions scheduled on Gauntlet Hangouts through August (and we have barely started putting things up for August). Many of those sessions are for Dungeon World, a game we love and play a lot.
Our community takes the act of playing ttrpgs very seriously. We teach each other, we support each other, we celebrate each other. Our open table play culture is all about creating space for new people to get involved; you never have to have experience with a particular game, and you can attend even if you can only make a session or two. No experience with online games? Doesn’t matter–we want you here. You’ll get up to speed very quickly with a group of fabulous people who will support you the whole way!
For more info about Gauntlet Hangouts, check the link below. More $7 Patreon spots will be available July 1st!
We just finished the second series of our We Hunt the Keepers!
We just finished the second series of our We Hunt the Keepers! Dungeon World campaign! The twelfth episode of Children of the Eight-Legged She is now in the podcast feed. The new series, The Path to Dim Carcosa, will be launching very, very soon.
In the meantime, if you haven’t given the show a try, I recommend starting with the first series, Song of the Milk-White Putrescence. This is Dungeon World being played by folks who know how to make the system sing.
If you have been listening to it, let us know what you think in the comments! And if you have been enjoying it, please consider supporting us on Patreon, as it’s the only way we can afford to keep creating this great content:
The newest episode of Discern Realities is here! This is the second in our Dungeon World Basics series. For this one, we’re covering combat in DW, which can be one of the most intimidating aspects of the game if you’re coming from something more traditional, like D&D. Our aim here is to de-mystify combat in DW and provide some best practices for running one.
Hello! I wanted to let you all know that Codex back issues are now available on DriveThruRPG. Previously, you could only get Codex through the Gauntlet Patreon, but a lot of people were asking for a DriveThru option, so here it is.
If you follow the Discern Realities podcast, you know that Codex has a ton of original Dungeon World stuff in it. The Volume One bundle includes 12 issues of the zine plus the 39-page Discern Realities Annual for a discounted price.
Today we launched our Dungeon World Basics series on the Discern Realities podcast.
Today we launched our Dungeon World Basics series on the Discern Realities podcast. If you know anyone who is DW-curious (or if you yourself are), this should be a really great resource. It includes roughly 20 minutes of topic discussion and 20 minutes of (very good) actual play.
