Tweeting Dungeon World

Last Sunday, I told you about how my crew and I were brewing up a nice little setting for a Dungeon World one-shot. Well, we’ll be playing today, and you can watch it live!

Alright, you can’t exactly watch it, but starting tonight at about 18:30 GMT+1, I’ll be tweeting about what’s going on at the game. Before that, you’ll also hear about the character creation and crazy talk my group and I have around the table.

So, if you want to see what it’s like to have me as a GM, follow my tweets over here, and bathe in the madness that is about to be unleashed. Really, you will probably never ever see another game where the Roman Empire, the Industrial Revolution and space dragons meet each other.

Twitter’s the place to be, and I’ll be happy to hear from you there or right here in the comments.

Game on!

Actual Play: Courage – Prologue

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: Courage – a Lunar solo chronicle! Before you scroll all the way down to fetch the PDF of the prologue, let me get a bit deeper into the background of this campaign.

It all happened in the fall of 2011. I had left my hometown behind to live a bit closer to my university, and that was really cool and all. The drawback was that I was away from my role-playing troupe now, which caused me to play about zero hours a week. This started to annoy me, but my friend (who I will call Dee for the sake of privacy) proposed that we might play something online. He had this cool concept of a shield-using Lunar, defending a city he loves, and I had an urge to see how Google Wave fared when used as a RPG tool, and so we had ourselves a little solo chronicle. That night, Courage was born.

But what is Courage? Well, you should rather ask who Courage is. Shield of Feline Courage is a young Lunar, who works as a male escort and dancer during the day, and slaughters the corrupt and frees the weak at night. His adventures take place in the city of Whitewall, and together with a whole team of colourful individuals, he will witness some great changes in one of the largest cities of Creation.

The chronicle never really ended, so I will only post AP’s up to one of the dramatic peaks of the story. Even though we never wrapped it up, I have to admit that running a solo chronicle is a lot of fun. Doing it online on Wave also felt like an exercise in cooperative writing, which is something both Dee and I really enjoyed.

The transcripts you will find here are mostly unedited. The only things I removed were the most obvious / obnoxious spelling errors and the dice rolls. I hope that you will have fun reading these, and if you have any thing to say about them, feel free to drop me a line.

With that said… click below to see the seven-page long prologue!
