The Gargoyle - A Dungeon World Playbook


When you play this class, you're a powerful tanky monster. I wrote it to be strong and scary without being so niche that it couldn't fit in an average group of players. You can hurl your enemies like toys, turn your body to stone and tear through tough materials. Your roar scars people for life and if that's not scary enough you can transform into a hulking behemoth!

The playbook has 20 advanced moves with an additional 8 in The Gargoyle Extended sheet for a total of 28.
There's also an optional starting move called The Stone Gargoyle for those of you who want your stone form to be a more permanent situation.

I've had an absolute blast playing this class and I'm sure you will too. Go have fun!

I've made a few changes to the playbook since first posting it.
The phrasing in the Behemoth move has been streamlined a bit.
The Roar move has been replaced with something called Terrorize. It works about the same and rolls with the same stat, but has some more interesting results. I also think it's more fun for the player if they can decide how they threaten their foe rather than just saying they roar at them.
Heavy Blow has been replaced with something called Maul and Sunder which has much better options more suited to the class.
Impact can technically already be done with the basic functions of Dungeon World so I replaced it with an ability called Skulker which gives you options for taking a captive or picking off an enemy from a group, very monster-like.

A few moves have been swapped to the 2+ and 6+ sections. Oh and there are two new moves in the extended move sheet, Supernatural Ward which gives you an ability related to real life gargoyle mythology and Monster Battle,...See more

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.
