Dear Fear the Boot Crew,
Considering that:
You care for “role”-playing as opposed to “roll”-playing,
You can appreciate the fact that less rules often means less distraction,
You understand that narrative negative space is a powerful tool;

Please do yourselves (and me) a service and play DungeonWorld (or any other PbtA). It just seems so perfect for you and your roleplaying style.

Better still, ask either Adam Koebel (one of the Authors) or Jason Cordova (of “The Gauntlet” and “Discern Realities” podcasts) to GM a session for you.

I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on the game that I currently believe to be (one of) the best storytelling systems around.

Cheers,
Stefano.

I just now realized how much my previous comment must sound like an ad.
My apologies.

I’m just a fan of the show and dw both.
