For those just joining, Dungeon World is a tabletop RPG made basically to be the game that many people wished Dungeons and Dragons actually was. The basic idea is that many actions, in and out of combat, can be simplified to a dice roll of 2d6 plus stat modifier. In doing so, the focus of Dungeon World is now less on combat (I have played D&D 3.5, 4th, and 5e and combat just DRAGS ON AND IT'S EVEN ON LEVEL ONE ENCOUNTERS) and you now have more time role playing and performing feats that make you look so badass wow!

PLOT SUMMARY: We're just starting. This is what the party is currently doing! I am going to edit this at various intervals, and if this is a success I'll change the party members to reflect the current campaign! PLEASE FULFILL MY DREAM OF HAVING A TOPIC GET MORE THAN JUST ONE TOPIC SO I CAN RUB IT IN VAL'S NOSE
Under this post I'll start off the actual campaign for real. And again I AM NOT COMPLETELY BEGGING but if you want to join, we can take up to two more players! I just request that if you are tagged you respond in 24 hours which I am totally good at according to the VGF Catan thread!! But I'll try to shuffle things so various members can get their turns in.
LASTLY! I said I was going to use a dice program, but I think letting you tell me the result may be better. For one, I can confirm with you if you want to do the action first by telling you to roll the dice. Second, much like the 1CC topic, we're pretty much adults here, and getting a low result is not the end of the world. Again, I need to point out you get experience for doing real bad on action rolls. Trust in honesty, and bad rolls is what makes Tabletop games so much fun!
So let's do this! Welcome... to Dungeon World!
