The Metaphysical - A Dungeon World Playbook

Watermarked PDF

The Metaphysical – The classic spell-caster, but with the Rusty DM spin. You have an ability to bend the laws of physics to your will, whether it be through traditional arcane and magical means, or the manipulation of the metaphysical itself.

The Metaphysical is for those who want to play a powerful, but possibly volatile manipulator of reality itself. Though lacking in brawn, your brain is your most powerful asset. With the power of your mind, you can solve complex problems by creating solutions, rather than bashing through them like a barbarian.

To give you an idea of where this class came from, the inspiration for The Metaphysical was Rincewind and the other wizards of Discworld, and any magic-user ever from games and media such as the Eldar Scrolls series and even World of Warcraft.

One special thing about this playbook is that it comes with two versions: 

  • The Vancian version that casts spells from a Spellbook full of spells picked from a list. This is the easier version of the class to play due to you having a set list of spells to draw from.
  • The Creative version that uses spells made up by the player, allowing for more creativity. Be careful though, when manipulating the fabric of reality the bigger the ask, the bigger the possible consequence.

This playbook comes with:

The Metaphysical playbook - Vancian version,

The Metaphysical playbook - Creative version,


Several cool magic items!

Product Information
File Size:
3.6 MB
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.
