Dungeon World: Lichfield

Originally slated for release in October, the crew over at Mythoard (which also has digital "boxes" now) has allowed us to release it four months early (ie, today)!

I've already talked about Lichfield in two other posts, but essentially it's a 30-page adventure that's heavily inspired by the Silent Hill series (hence the name, as opposed to the longer ones I've used in the past).

In a nutshell the main villain is a dead witch, who hellishly transforms both the city and most of its citizens due to her aforementioned affliction. The characters get caught up in this, and have to stop her before the city is destroyed (and, possibly more importantly, them along with it).

This adventure was originally part of the April Mythoard package. It has been modified to be full-color and wholly independent from the "Mythoard setting" (because not everyone will have purchased all of the other Mythoard exclusives). Inside you'll find:
  • Four ways to use the book and start the adventure.
  • The Jacinda formatted as a danger.
  • An overview of the city of Lichfield (using my steading-stat-block), which includes a map, some of its citizens, places of interest, location moves, and so on.
  • A similar treatment for Lichfield after the curse takes effect.
  • Random building contents and floorplans (in case the characters try to hide in or loot buildings).
  • customized treasure table specific to this adventure.
  • A new magic item (that you'll have to pry from the hands of one of the monsters).
  • Four new monsters (five if you count Jacinda), each drawn from Jacinda's experiences, fears, and hatred (no, none of them are nurses).
  • A small dungeon, which includes a Silent Hill-esque puzzle.

Note: If you purchase using the PayPal Buy Now button, we will also send you a complimentary copy through DriveThruRPG.



The Swashbuckler is out. This is our take on a melee type character that relies more on grace and wits than a big-ass sword and heavy armor. It boasts a new character sheet layout, some extra moves, and new bits of gear and magic items.

We've updated our All of the Playbooks Bundle,to include The Swashbuckler. We've also added a Rogues Gallery bundle if you just want The Bard, The Pirate, and The Swashbuckler, and an Adventuring Party bundle if you want all of our more "normal" selection of playbooks.

The Dungeon World GM Screen is currently available in pdf and landscape insert formats. No matter which you choose, you get eight sets of pdfs that let you have access to the screen in both landscape and portrait orientation, in color or black and white, and with or without art.

We're waiting on the portrait inserts. Assuming they look good, they'll be available soon. Next up, mini screen!

The Golem is nearly done. Should be up in the next day or two. We're doing The Rakshasa next since it was a very close second place, and then after that we'll hold another class vote.

In A Sundered World news, the promo adventure and comic are both nearly done. Just sent the adventure out to backers for closed feedback. Assuming they have no problems with it, I'll just need to do finish the art and a bit of text. Melissa is toiling away coloring the comic, after which that will be done.
