Dungeonhearts: Youth on the Borderlands

Dungeonhearts: Youth on the Borderlands


Dungeonhearts: Youth on the Borderlands is a short mash-up of Monsterhearts and Dungeon World, focusing on homeless teenage monsters living in abandoned buildings.

As a teenager, you knew something was different about you. So you left to become a wandering adventurer, just like in the video games and books that you loved. Maybe it was your choice or maybe that choice was made for you. Either way, the urban wilderness became your home, and you eked out a living through scavenging, freebooting, and delving.

Eventually, a group of you decided to set up camp in this abandoned building, full of endless corridors and empty rooms, tunnels and crumbling staircases, as well as the occasional secret—a lost diary or photograph, a tunnel leading nowhere, or cryptic graffiti.

Here, with a few other “unaccompanied” teens, you live one day at a time and attempt to navigate the ambitions, rivalries, romances, needs, and excesses of the other denizens. Here you guard your loot and nurse your pain like a dragon in its dungeon, a vampire in its castle, or a ghost in its crypt. You were an adventurer once but now you are a monster. You may dislike or even hate some of the others, but there are bigger threats driving you together: elder monsters and vile horrors lurking in the shadows, such as the Dungeon Master.

Sometimes other teens form groups and venture into your domain, armed either with bricks and bats or with eyes you could get lost in and skin that smells like dreams. Some of them are monsters, just like you, and are looking to get away or to find something lost deep within your cavernous home. They have no clue about the dangers, but you do.

I love the concept of this mash-up! This document is a short guide to running a Monsterhearts + Dungeon World game, including new aspects of character creation (including backstory elements and how to craft a character using both games) and a few new moves (encountering the Big Bad and using monster moves). This pdf is mostly tailored for the MC running the game, and also includes a guide on how to create the setting and what to include in the setting and adventure. Considering only the MC would need to buy this pdf for their whole group to play, I consider $2 to be a very fair price!

How many pages is this, and what exactly is the content? It is marketed as a mash-up of two completed rulesets, but I'm unsure if it is a full game, or an expansion of sorts.

It's 4 pages long (as it says in the bar to the right) and requires both Monsterhearts and Dungeon World to play. Definitely a supplement, rather than a stand-alone product.

THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HERE! This is a total rip off, even at two dollars. Do not buy this, you will get more substance out of a random plot generator online.

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.
