Hey, heads up, if you missed your chance to get into one of the Shared World Dungeon World groups a 5th group just opened up! We’ve been chatting about what this 5th group could be, and it sounds like the plan is a mix of Majora’s Mask, Star Trek & Doctor Who. Basic idea so far is that there’s an island/continent where time is strange that’s repeating the last week of a war over and over again. Sounds like a Star Trek/Doctor Who episode to me, and very cool! Jump in if you’ve been waiting.
The other 4 groups are close to starting now. We got 4 full teams with start dates as soon as next week. The world we’re building is very large, very Zelda inspired, and is furry as fuck. Each team is basically exploring their own corner of the world which is very cool. Cooperation between GMs should help them figure out a lot, and could serve as a mini-writer’s room as Xiim, the 5th GM, put it. It’s very promising.
We’ll be making a thread for the Shared Campaign later once things start going in full. We think it might be cool if the parties post updates to the forum to let everyone know what’s going on.
To summarize the parties based on the best knowledge I have…
Group Alpha is Human Party which may also be Unsettling Magic Party. That’s humans for you. I think they’re the only pure human group.
Group Beta is Boat Party! A very Wind Waker inspired campaign where we’re doing the Korok thing of planting trees! We got a non-anthropomorphic osprey druid, a dryad fighter, a dwarven cleric and a bear paladin.
Group Gamma is Monster Party maybe! They’ve got a Minotaur bard, a Golden Retriever Gnoll gunslinger (?) and more!
Group Delta is Pride Party! Their setting is open like Breath of the Wild and is ruled by Lions/Elves, hence pride. They got a lot of cat people on their crew.
Group Epsilon is Time Party potentially! They might be very Majora’s Mask with a bit of Chrono Trigger? Very cool!
Admittedly I know most about my own group, heh. We should each write our own groups’ log lines before we make a whole thread for this.
