Dungeon World Campaign: The Colossus Archipelago
« on: February 19, 2014, 09:53:11 AM »
Here's the beginning, middle, and end for my prep work running the DW campaign on our many "off-nights" at RPPR. Marvel at my anatomical cartographical mastery!

Knowing nothing about this game I am lead to believe Dungeon World is the game your inner 12 years old always wished they could play?

Nice. I foresee roughly three hours of body part based racism and puns.

Reminds me of the RPG Reign but that had two bodies, a man and a woman I believe.

Also the video game Xenoblade which had the giant die standing up while fighting another giant.

This was really neat! I've always liked the idea of beyond gigantic scale monsters and living on top of them. Like Tad said, reminds me of Xenoblade and stuff. Plus all the body puns!

I'm incredibly proud that the game hasn't descended into penis jokes.
Knowing my group they'd immediately say that they came from the twin islands of Scrote-opia.

so is it actually completely skeletonized? it's not covered in hideous withered giant flesh? or does that vary from place to place? the whole idea is just so gloriously grotesque that I've been making a deliberate effort to visualize everything.

and are there other landmasses? does society consider them mythical? I so long to know about this vile world

I think they're still getting their fill of coccyx jokes. Actually very little body humor in general. RPPR is higher class than the average gamer.

We will NEVER get our fill of Coccygeal humor.  And honestly, can there ever be enough jokes about the tailbone?

Now Caleb, how serious were you about Load-Bearing Fungus, 'cause I am totally going to be thinking up lyrics all day now?

That's it, this setting now needs an official sourcebook.  ;D
