Hey you can listen to how terrible my voice sounds and how many times I say "um" and how squeaky my chair is! And you can look at my photoshop while you're doing it!

I started my Northolme Dungeon World game this weekend, and wrote up this doc to keep track of setting details as we add them to the game.

Northolme Setting DetailsOne of the things about Dungeon World is the collaborative setting creation. The DM asks questions, and the players come up with answers. How broad or specific these questions are is entirely up to the DM. Some campaigns might be fairly concrete and detailed ahead of time, and others might be comple

This started off as a dumb warm up sketch, and turned into a full dumb piece. The Final Moments of Yolo Swaggins, from our last D&D&D session. Yolo sacrificed himself by jumping into a red dragon's face, thus saving the rest of the party by taking the entirety of the breath weapon attack that would have killed most everyone on the flying carpet. YOLO.

We have finished D&D&D (Dungeons & Dragons & Drinking). After previously looting the Palace of the Silver Princess and discovering and uniting the Lost City, our heroes broke the curse of Castle Amber! 

After defeating the tomb guardians with ease and being rewarded with expensive jewelry and random magic items, our heroes discovered that the City of Townsville was under attack! They defeated the rampaging red dragon, although poor Yolo Swaggins died sacrificing himself for the party (YOLO) and the City of Townsville was saved!

Romney the Dwarf settled in as the new mayor of Townsville, with Corky the Wizard taking over the town newspaper, and Dingleberry the Halfling the new chief of the guard, Hingle McKringleberry becoming high priest of the temple of Townsville, Noodle Boy the Dragonslayer the Dwarf acting as the mayor's personal guard, Steve? the Dwarf forming the Church of Yolo, and Queefy McTeague wandering off to become a pirate queen and arm wrestling champion (and then going back in time for more adventures).

All in all, it was pretty epic and dumb and great. I think a perfect ending to our D&D&D adventures. (RIP Yolo)

Up next, I'm starting a monthly somewhat boozy and silly fantasy viking themed sandbox Dungeon World game!

This is pretty cool, a Vampire the Masquerade themed Fiasco playset. I'm tempted to make a hack/variant set in Chicago in 1992.

A friend on twitter suggested that what she really wants to see is a Fiasco playset set in a Vampire LARP, and man she is totally right. I might have to write up two variants/riffs on this.

Gamer Geekery Question Time!

Over the weekend, I helped put on a big event, I came away with the following scrapes and bruises:

Tore the skin off of the back of both feet from walking in my Docs too much without properly thick socks.

Two mystery cuts on my left index finger that I have no idea the cause for.

A giant welt on my right lower back from going down the 10 story slide at the City Museum (twice!)

Probably the swine flu or something from Saturday's afterparty.

Some pretty major fatigue after working the festival about 30 hours between Thursday and Saturday and then staying up ridiculously late partying every night.

Burned my pinky draining boiling water from spaghetti last night. (Not technically work related, but the fatigue definitely helped cause it so I'm going to count it.)

So, in your system of choice, how would you model that? How much damage did I take in hit points/fatigue levels/wounds/whatever?

Yeah, a level of fatigue from bumps and bruises and a level from exhaustion feels about right.

I need a ton of cool fantasy norse/vikingish names. Obviously there are a bunch of resources available to me, like wikipedia and baby name sites and so on, but I figured I'd also hit the G+ hivemind and see if you had any cool names to suggest.
