The Edgy Designer - A Dungeon World Playbook

Finally, an RPG supplement which understands that fedora-wearing white guys are the REAL oppressed minority! It even lets them bring their Ren Faire sword and armour into the World of Dungeons, and strike away at their Social Justice Warrior foes with either steel or cutting words before retreating to their Google+ safe space.

The only real downside is that, as we all know, Dungeon World is Not A Real RPG. And so the people that this was made for will never know the joke, I mean joy, of True Old School Gaming with a character made just for them.

Fortunately, it's Creative Commons licensed! So a True Old School GM can easily pick up the material and concepts in this PDF, and create an Old School class based on it, with gender- and racial- based prime requisites instead of ability scores. I recommend a d20 Hit Die, double the normal starting gear, and an EXP progression which is faster than any other class', but with class features that stop working if the Edgy Designer realizes that he has an unfair advantage.

Multiclassing with Paladin would be optional, but recommended.

The Edgy Designer - A Dungeon World Playbook

This is the #5 hottest today(26th May 2014)?

If it was actually turned into satire and made to fit into most DW games without making focus on the character force discussion in a certain direction, it'd be pretty cool. Coulda been used to portray veterans turned bards from a time of major racial war or a , but nope has to be google minus, blogging, true gaming bingo bongo what's immersion.

It's too unsubtle for satire and is only like 10 moves long, and the mechanics are kinda misordered. You need at least level 2 to use the class beyond set games, and like level 6 to avoid being That Guy nearly automatically by using this playbook (and why would you that). If someone does manage to take and play this with what can be considered and average DW group without either killing or pissing off the group, in a game not tailored around this playbook, then good on you.

On the other hand, FATE core or accelerated are pay-what-you-want, as is Beyond by Zero Point Information (no association), Always/Never/Now by Will Hindmarch(no association), or even a ponyfinder expansion or two (no association, again). Each of these can be easily used to explore the themes this is trying to, but better and cheaper. Do yourself a favour and celebrate terrible designers by picking up work by good designers and enjoying a good game while laughing at the bad ones.

2/5, some of the moves are kinda cool and I laughed, but so much wasted potential. Keeping the review short to avoid grog.

It makes my half of the FATAL review look like a wet bag of marbles.

A one-off joke based on the stupidity of certain designers, but a hilarious one. Even better, this it is even slightly playable for a more goofy game of Dungeon World.

I give this a single star on principle, as this entire fiasco is essentially a pay-per-view slap fight.

I will never use any of this content in a Dungeon World game because it's so ludicrously topical and trite it may as well be a glorified Facebook post. That they asked for money at all is in insult - professionalism is absent from this.

I am ashamed as a tabletop hobbyist and saddened to see such pettiness and rank immaturity between publishers.

Absolutely worth the dollar for the laughs. If you've been in the hobby for any amount of time you've seen people like this; and if like me you roll your eyes right up into orbit whenever they appear, this is a thing of beauty.
