This looks like great fun. I’m considering using it with World of Dungeons under the hood. A few questions:

“Inventory” indicates that the number of items carried is determined by Constitution modifier. These values typically range -3 to +3 so is this correct?

“Settlements and Locals” could generate maximum populations of 40 (hamlet), 70 (village), 110 (town), 150 (city). These numbers seem quite small. Have you seen Medieval Demographics Made Easy by S. John Ross?

For “Nightly Events” what modifiers are applied that could result in 13+?

I just finished a session of “Escape from Hoth” using this system and it went great. My crew is familiar with Dungeon Word so it was easy for them to figure out how to choose outcomes and to choose Failures even when they had Skill/Fate points to spend. I made some modifications but that’s a longer/different post.

Now a question: working as a team, there were a few times when the Consequence should have been more general. Instead, I shoe-horned it into individual consequence(s). Any idea on how to handle choices by one PC that can affect the whole group?

In a typical dungeon crawl scenario, PCs will outfit themselves with specific equipment and likely find loot in their adventures. Do you have experiences with mundane and magical gear to share? 

I’m thinking that gear is interesting for descriptive purposes but needs to be part of a trope to provide any kind of advantage. I can see how magical gear might provide a trope or perhaps allow for an additional Skill Point for a specific use. 

This is a really cool system. I like how the Bids mirror usual outcomes from Dungeon World - that lets me draw on a vast set of resources. 

Are there any examples of play you can post? I’m especially interested in Gloom Mode and handling combat.

Thanks for all of this! I found the rules on the website to be especially illuminating. There are certain differences between the website and the Definitive that we’re key to understanding. Your responses have now solidified that. The Darkness Beneath is also very helpful  

Another two part question, then: 4 adjectives are assigned at character creation. When those are bid on a challenge, they are effectively lost, correct? Meaning that when a player Fishes for adjectives at a location, those are likely to be different adjectives, correct?

Second part: I wonder about initial adjectives and their role in the core concept of a character. I’ve thought about literally refreshing these initial adjectives at locations and/or fishing for additional adjectives. 

For example: Conan - Hyborean Warrior has an adjective “mighty” and spends it to slay Tulsa Doom. Fishing around he picks up a “radiant” sapphire. Conan no longer has “mighty” to bid in challenges?

I’m really enjoying what I’m reading. Coming from older editions of D&D to world of dungeon and now to diceless, I have a few questions:

* How are “descriptors” used in play? Do they define or constrain the kinds of adjectives or just serve as fictional anchors?

* Is there a notion of difficulty? Perhaps a certain challenge may require 3 adjectives to overcome?

* How do monster adjectives get spent or are they again intended as fictional cues?

* Do you have an example of combat to share?

Thanks in advance!

Can you give an example of the Damage Wager?

Thanks for the reply!

Another question: since casting a spell during combat requires 2 actions, it seems that this can only be accomplished if the character has an applicable _combat_ skill. Correct?

I just grabbed this PDF; it looks great and reads very well. Do you have an example of combat that you can share? I have many questions...

  • With popcorn initiative like this, enemies often go last. Do you have suggestions on how to manage this?
  • With I-Go-You-Go order during combat rounds, defense actions can be set up pre-emptively or in reaction to a previous enemy’s action?
  • Is the resolution of the combat action simply a comparison of combat skill for the PC vs enemy?
