Dungeon World Denizens of the Moathouse

By on ::

I’m working on my GenCon adventure, and have an initial draft of the Dungeon World version of the denizens of the Moathouse. I’m curious about some of the moves, as I feel they might be weak – moves by the humans seem weak to me.

So leave a comment if you have suggestions.
