The Gunner - A Dungeon World Playbook

Watermarked PDF

This flexible class not only lets you outfit a gunslinger-type character, but also lets you roll out something more akin to a gunner from Tera, or the heavy and sniper from Team Fortress 2. You choose how your gun was built (magic, flesh, or some sort of pseudo-science), how big it is (a pistol, rifle, or big-ass cannon, which you can change over time), and then let the bullets—or lightning, magic, or chitinous spikes—fly.

Though the class is initially intended as a ranged damage-dealer (a number of moves give you bonus damage, add or let you swap out tags, or let you blow your entire load in one big attack), plenty of moves let you bleed into more of a supporting role: you can give your allies bonus armor against ranged attacks, provide covering fire, lead the way on a perilous journey, keep watch while everyone else rests, and so on.

This product contains three files.

One is a letter-sized character sheet that uses our new character sheet layout (which allowed us to fit 31 of the 40ish advanced moves).

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 gunner class (and its 31 advanced moves).
  • New ranged weapons—including a variety of guns and a repeating crossbow—and armor (including a gun-shield attachment for bigger guns).
  • A director's cut with questions to ask yourself, explanations for some of the moves, and nine advanced moves that we couldn't fit on the sheet.

Concentrated Fire and volley is a little unclear. Is the intent to only be able volley with your gun when you have Ammo (so Concentrated Fire would actually use 2 ammo - one for the initial volley and then one for the extra effect)?

The volley move doesn't require you to spend ammo: you only use up ammo when you roll a 7-9 and choose to reduce it by 1.

Concentrated Fire kind of flips it: you can spend 1 ammo anyway on a 10+ for a bonus.

Just bought The Gunner and a number of other playbooks. Is there an updated file for the Gunner's playbook? The one that came with my purchase lists the same Bonds as the Fighter, rather than the dedicated Gunner bonds described in the actual "digest" book.

Thanks for catching that! I just fixed and re-uploaded the character sheet, so it should be good now.

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.
