Could someone explain (or point me to an explanation or discussion) how durations work in practice? my most recent session was the first time it really came up (before that I planned to just figure them out on the fly) and I guess I just had a hard time wrapping my mind around how they actually work in play. Do durations only pass when a move is triggered that ends a duration? My cleric invoked his god in order to be granted temporary healing that would last one duration. I ended up having that duration and when it felt narratively appropriate but I wasn't sure if that was the right way to actually approach things. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Been running my Freebooters 2e campaign for a couple months now and we just had our first player character death that stuck. It wasn't epic, he didn't sacrifice himself, it wasn't particularly climactic, but it was still powerful. The other PCs took a (very) brief moment to grieve, looted his corpse, and moved on. The player immediately started rolling up a new character. I really appreciate that the char gen process itself is so engaging, because the player was able to work on that in the background while the others carried on, and he didn't feel like he missed out at all. He was still having fun.

On Saturday I'm running the second session of my new Freebooters 2E game. We rolled for everything and built the world collaboratively, leaving plenty of blanks. Over the last few days, I've been working to convert our hand-drawn and very messy map into something more presentable. I made this using the amazing Hex Kit program, and I'm pretty excited about it.

For a while I was working on a PbtA/MotW hack meant to channel Twin Peaks with a weird horror vibe, but it turns out hacks are an awful lot of work (especially when you decide to add in an entire additional optional rule set to accommodate playing a more Lovecraftian style game with "mythology" and "sanity" rules). I got about as far as creating my first playbook, The Special Agent, which I've since gone back and adapted to MotW. I'd love to hear folks thoughts on it!

So, knowing that this isn't exactly within the spirit of the game, has anyone created additional playbooks or have tips for adapting DW playbooks to Freebooters?

I know this page hasn't been active in a while but I wasn't sure where else to ask: I've been playing to play The Woodlands/Legends of the Guard with my regular group but I was a little confused about rank. Does rank have a mechanical benefit/effect that I'm somehow skimming over? Or is it just for flavor? Am I missing something?

Thanks!

Someone posted this over on the MotW subreddit, and I thought it might be worth sharing here as well.

Quick question. I apologise if it's been asked before but I just finished up the second session of a one-shot that ended up a two-parter, and something came up that we didn't know the answer to (these two sessions are my first and so far only experiences with MotW). If a hunter spends luck to retroactively turn a miss into a 12+, do they still mark experience for the miss? I made a quick table ruling that they wouldn't, but we tried looking it up and from what we saw the book doesn't explicitly say. I can kind of see the argument either way. I tried doing a search to find the answer but it didn't come up, so I'd love to hear from y'all on how this is supposed to work.

Thanks!

Using the production/regular Google Play build and a number of vaulted photos are still present in Google Photos app and other apps that access the gallery (Instagram, Facebook, etc.) They are completely hidden on Focus but obviously it's no good if they can still be accessed so easily. When I use Solid Explorer to navigate to the directory where the photos originally were before vaulting them, the files (for the ones not properly hidden) are still there. I've tried restarting, clearing cache, and so on. Thought about deleting files and seeing if they still exist in the vault but I'd prefer not to lose any files.
