The Chosen Visitor - A Dungeon World Playbook


You were just living a normal live on Earth, when you heard a voice calling to you. “Please, save our world!” The voice asked nicely, but it didn’t actually wait for an answer before the light show started. Now you’re in another world, one where magic and monsters are real, and there are people who seem to think that you’re the Chosen One. There’s no telling whether you’ll actually find a way home, but at least things won’t be boring while you’re here.

The Chosen Visitor is a Dungeon World class for people from present-day Earth who’ve been sucked into a fantasy world. It draws inspiration on an entire genre of fantasy literature, exemplified by works like Poul Anderson’s Three Hearts and Three Lions, as well as anime like Magic Knight Rayearth. Some Chosen Visitors are simply people who do their best to rise to the occasion when thrust into a strange situation, but many manifest strange powers that they themselves can’t explain.

I wonder why the "Marked as the Chosen One" move is automatically awarded to the character. There are different stories that turn the Isekai trope on its head, like, "The Rising of the Shield Hero" or "My Favorite Song--The Silver Siren" or many others. In those stories, the "Chosen One" starts as vilified by the natives of the world the character is now in, and must build a positive reputation. I think this would be more interesting, anyway. Does anyone have suggestions on what to call the move?

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.
