The Star Mage - A Dungeon World Playbook


The Star Mage Preview Edition: Available Here

The Star Mage is a playbook for the Dungeon World roleplaying game, and the fifth of my Mage Revised series. The Mage is one of the most popular playbooks I have ever written, but it has its flaws - the class is too open ended, and is generally capable of solving problems on a larger scope than any other class can really confront. My solution was to pare down the class into multiple different classes, each built around a single Spell Focus. This class is a reimagining of a Mage with Spell Focus: The Stars.

The Star Mage lets you play as a creature from beyond the stars, with the strange and magical powers that come from your bizarre nature. You manipulate space with ease, creating small holes in the fabric of space. Reaching or leaping through these holes gives you unparalleled mobility and reach, which you can also grant to your allies. As you grow stronger, your abilities only get more and more bizarre.

How come this Playbook only lists Advanced Moves for levels 2-5 and not 6+? I'm totally new to DW and loved this class for an upcoming game but I got very confused since it is apparently lacking the Advanced Moves for higher levels from 6th and onward.

Could someone please tell me if I'm missing something or just don't understand that some vlasses have more moves than others since I'm so new?

Thanks a lot and have a very happy New Year!

I know it's been a while since these were released but I'm wondering if there are any plans to finish the other mage types? As I recall, there were 11 foci and 5 of these released.
Maybe a single POD book containing all 11? I'd buy the heck out of that.

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.
