Re: UW2 Design Thread

Sean, this is awesome. The three core moves of UW are like a fancier version of World of Dungeons, and I like the way you've distilled them here.

When you start getting materiels together, I'd love to playtest some UW2

Re: Uncharted Worlds Post-Mortem

You can just START as a super solider :)

I definitely dig the alternate advancement stuff from FBH and think it should be the primary mode of advancement

Re: Where do you get your general RPG news/discussion these days?

I moved my home group there, and follow a few smaller servers too. This big mainstream ones are super busy, but t...

Re: A UW zine?

Zines are things from the olden years before 2000. People would print cheap pamphlets of art or music or poetry and give them away or sell them for $1 or whatever. They've gained new steam in the era where everything is digital and owning something physical is novel. Couple this with the FOMO genera...

Re: Uncharted Worlds Post-Mortem

I tried a few different methods of tracking debt and favor, but never messed with wealth. The reason was three-fold, I think: We focused heavily on Favors and Debts as the true economy, so "get rich" wasn't as important as "get people off our backs" Class 2 gear and cargo was hard to come by, but 3 ...

Re: What are you working on?

I'm in the midst of writing urban adventuring rules for Torchbearer to drop with a custom setting reminiscent of Planescpe or Throne from Kill Six Billion Demons.

Re: Uncharted Worlds Post-Mortem: Part I (What Worked)

It's weird - in most other PbtA games, I think the generic moves are crutches, but the base three here work really well. I wish I knew why. It feels closer to World of Dungeons in that way. I think you could make a generic Launch Assault move ("Resolve a Conflict") that is stat-less as well to cover...

Re: Barter with the new Debt System from the Carta Galaxia preview

Remember that class 3 and up are super rare. In a standard market it is difficult to find C2 goods. So there's more upfront difficulty in finding what you want.

But if you want to make the move more logical, instead of +Cargo, you can roll +Difference in cargo classes.
