I hadn't heard of dungeon world before, i'll have to check it out! I'm also considering doing a small hack of Blades in the Dark (i'd been meaning to make a planar rpg for a while now, it's such an underrated genre of fantasy) for it, or maybe trying out something like Troika. Thanks for the suggestion!
There actually is a planar fantasy version of Blades in the Dark! It's called SIG: City of Blades and it's actually referenced in an easter egg in the text!
You can check it out here:
And you can grab it on itch, here:
oh yes, i've seen Sig before! it's a little too heavy on the faction games aspect of blades for my taste, but i bet it could be made to fit the planedawn framework for people who enjoy that aspect of the fitd system
Understandable. I do like BitD but the whole metagame with the gang and the factions always felt too busy for me. I do enjoy more lightweight things.
Here's Sig running on its own original system pre-BitD
Troika! should always be on a list of planar fantasy rpg systems!
