Suggested Price $0.00

Truncheon World is a truncated version of the Dungeon World rules, to be referenced by the GM during the game and during prep. The material here is presented in a slightly different order than in the Dungeon World book.

This pdf does NOT contain the entire Dungeon World rules.

This pdf will NOT teach you how to play Dungeon World.

If you want the full game, go buy Dungeon World!

I made this book to be a lighter version of Dungeon World, without the rules I never reference in play. No player character rules, no monster stats, no examples. So it's a lot easier to carry around. This is just a pdf, though, in case you want it, for whatever reason. Maybe you like the order the rules are presented here, maybe you want to print your own copy. If you appreciate the editing and layout work, feel free to make a donation when you purchase this item, it will go towards creating more Dungeon World supplements.

The text of Dungeon World was released under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported license, and Truncheon World is also released under the same license.

This has become my go-to reference when GMing Dungeon World. As a bonus, they've added a few very minor things (e.g. to the section on Fronts) that make the existing design a bit clearer and easier to use. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
