The Druid - A Dungeon World Playbook

Watermarked PDF

You can feel the pulse of the world as it beats through the ground, and hear its sibilant whispers carried by the winds. You can channel this energy to heal those deserving few, or unleash it upon any who would defy the forces of nature.

Blurring the line between man and beast, you can also shed your own flesh, assuming the shape of one of nature’s myriad children. Your form is boundless: prowl through dark forests, soar through the open sky, and swim in the vast seas.

Armed with knowledge of the wild and its primeval power, do you simply try to survive, coexist with the kingdoms men strive to carve out for themselves, or will you drag civilization back into the untamed darkness?

Survival of the fittest, and all that that entails.

The class presents an alternative to the druid class found in Dungeon World. For starters, you don't roll to change your form, and you don't spend hold and revert back. Instead you choose a benefit and penalty. Another key difference is that you also have access to a few magical tricks.

As you level up, you choose where you improve: master your forms by gaining passive benefits and make more choices, enhance your healing, or devastate your enemies with primeval magic. You can also learn new tricks, like finding resources any time you venture through the wild, attract animal followers, and more.

The Director's Cut provides extensive detail on the skin-walker move, and ways to tweak both it and the core druid (such as by removing shapechanging entirely, focusing more on magic).

This product contains four files.

Two are letter-sized character sheets that use our new character sheet layout. One has a complete blank gear section, while the other fills in the initial choices if you want to just check some boxes and start playing.

The other two are digest-sized books, one in color, the other in black and white (to make it easier to print off at home if you want). They both contain:

  • The druid class, complete with 22 advanced moves.
  • New weapons, armor, and dungeon gear.
  • A pair of new magic items.
  • A director's cut with questions to ask yourself, explanations and suggestions for some of the moves (especially skin-walker), and some extra moves that didn't make the original cut (including some to further modify skin-walker, as well as ritual magic and ritual sacrifice).

Hi, awesome playbooks as always. On the first page of the playbook, though, under 'Primal Magic' (with the little check-boxes) it says 'Green Thunk' instead of 'Green Thumb.' Thought I'd point it out. It gave me a laugh!

Glad you dig it, and sorry about that. Just uploaded a new set of sheets. Thanks for pointing it out, and please let us know if you notice anything else awry!

Hi again David,

Under the Advanced Moves, for the move "Natural Disaster," it says it replaces a move called "Devastating Wrath." I can't find a reference to that move in the 2-5 moves. Is it supposed to be referring to "Nature's Wrath" instead?

Just an FYI, in the handbook, on page 8 of both versions, you made a Typo under Primal Magic. It reads "Then Roll + Wis. *On a 7+ the effect happens. *On a 7-9 choose one:" I think it's supposed to read "*On a 10+, the effect happens." Otherwise this is a great playbook!

Glad you dig it!

The idea is that if you get a 7-9, the effect happens AND you gotta choose something, and on a 10+ just the effect happens.

By saying “on a 7+, the effect happens”, I’m avoiding repeating “the effect happens” twice, since by getting a 10+ you still got a 7+, but since you didn’t get in the 7-9 range you ignore the part about making a choice.

It’s something someone else suggested, or might have been in a previous class, but checking the book the cleric’s Turn Undead, the paladin’s I Am The Lawy, the ranger’s Hunt & Track move and The Burning Wheel have similarly structured moves.

Hi, I bought this (and most of your other playbooks) and is sad to say that your character sheets looks awful when printed.
Looking at the sheets the text isn’t selectable and some of the fonts is blurry even before it’s printed.
Could you save the Sheets with selectable text so they can be upscaled when printed?

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.
