Strongholds - A Dungeon World Guidebook


What do you think of when you imagine a stronghold? Typically, a stronghold is a fortified structure such as a castle or a keep, but it can be anything you want; a temple or monastery, a tower, a cave complex, a mansion, an island, or even a giant hollowed tree. In Dungeon World terms, a stronghold is not a steading; it does not have its own economy nor a thriving population (although it could and if you take care of it, it really should. You shouldn’t be surprised if you see that some villagers have built houses around your keep while you were away). A stronghold is your base of operations, your command post, your headquarters, your fortress of solitude. It is where you store your loot and where you go to lick your wounds after a fearsome battle.

Strongholds contain guidelines on how to build and acquire strongholds and what to equip them with.


This product contains four files:

  • A new 21 page guidebook with new art, spelling fixes, two more chambers, one more upgrade, and three stronghold examples.
  • A 21 page guidebook containing guidelines to build strongholds.
  • Another 21 page guidebook in black and white for those who wish to save on ink.
  • A two page sheet for you to record your stronghold's tags and chambers

I just finished reading this, and it's awesome! It was reallly exactly what I was hoping it would be (we're so often dissapointed). I think this will be an awesome addition for my players; normally there is so little to spend money on in DW. I'm ver [...]

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.
