I would like to add a Discern Realities type of move to Offworlders. I can run WoDu and light systems without the full move selection from dungeon world, but I find that Discern Realities and Spout Lore are really useful since these moves have some structure, and are a way to add some authorship to the players. You can free form these moves with the basic rolling the dice move from WoDu/Offworlders, but I think the structure/constraint can help generate some creativity at the table.
I would like to crowd source three moves for Offworlders in this thread.
- A replacement for Discern Realities - some sort of examining the situation / getting read outs from scanners or similar.
- A replacement for Spout Lore - something that lets players check their accumulated knowledge of how space works and the specific planets and systems.
- A third type of move that recognizes that they are travelers, and probably know people or situations where they are going. something like Port in a Storm, success would give them a beneficial contact or information about the place they are going to, failure would mean that yeah they know someone or something about it, but right now in their current situation it becomes more of a burden than a benefit or a complication.
Be great to get different folks take on that in the thread below.
Shane let me know if this should go into RPG design instead of RPG chat.
Peace and keep on trucking’
