The Elf - A Dungeon World Playbook

The Elf - A Dungeon World Playbook


Your people have seen ages beyond mortal reckoning. Shadows of evil have passed over the world time and again, and with each passing age your people grew fewer and feebler until, finally, they retreated from the world. In your wake arose the proud dwarves, arrogant humans, stout halflings and so many others. Most of your kind dismisses their potential, content to sink slowly into obscurity.

But you see them for what they truly are.

Pushed into walking amongst them for reasons of your own, you have seen the myriad tragedies and impossible heights to which these successor races aspire. They are capable of dismal lows and staggering peaks, packed into lifetimes so short as to beggar the imagination. Your people may be in decline, but you walk the world with your head held high, glad to spend your race's final days in the company of those who strive beyond their limits, never giving up.

Perhaps this is the end. Perhaps your people's time has come again. But if you are to leave this world, you will not go with a whisper but with a bang!

The Elf is a new class for use with Dungeon World, perfect for players who like their Dungeon World with an old-school feel.

I started my Dungeon World party with five human members, and -- as party members discovered and came to learn the cultures of the other races as they pertained to my setting -- I allowed the players to play the other races. The Elf Class was ac [...]

I'm not strictly a fan of the idea of races as their own classes, but the Elf is a very solid way of handling the concept. This two-page playbook contains various moves which really evoke the feeling of a mysteriously magical, naturally attuned race. [...]

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.
