SETTING NOTES HERE.

Oneshot at 1500 GMT+10 on Sunday, played over Discord. This is mostly so I can mess around with Dungeon World. Trash homebrew setting. Make a level 2 character from any playbook, I really don't care about balance. You work as a murderlackey for GKI, a megacorp made up mostly of liches and assorted crazy people. Additionally, pick a single one-use weapon device to bring with you. Trix has already claimed the Lia pregen!

What to expect: drop pod onto a resort island, steal a car, fight your way up an abandoned hotel, murder someone and steal the data back before they can fulton away.

Alignment: RUBE GOLDBERG
Setup and trigger a crazy chain of events.

Background: Ex-Machina
You used to be an interfacing machine of some variety before downloading into a squishy body, 
but you still have a knack for wave warfare. Pick one spell or item; 
it’s jammed for the duration of the scene and can’t be used.

Bonds:
 _____________ finds me unnatural.
 _____________ lacks the vision necessary to see the world as I do.
 _____________ and I share a common past.

Gear:
⃞ Bizarre adventuring gear (5 uses, 1 weight). When you use this gear,
describe how the equipment varies from mundane equipment.
⃞ A small computerized guide to the galaxy (1 use, 1 weight). It functions
as a bag of books, except it restocks 1-use each time you Make Camp.

Moves:
Origami Universe
You are capable of creating small folds in spacetime at will. What these folds look like is
up to you, whether they be small portals, wrinkled space, warped elongations, or some
other spacial effect. When you make use of these folds to extend your reach, anything
you can see within Near range is also considered to be within Hand range of you. You
can touch, manipulate, drop, pick up, or attack any one thing in Near range as if all
intervening space between you did not exist. Be warned - this goes both ways, and what
you reach out to can reach back.

Fold Space (Wis)
When you expand your folds in space to make a portal large enough to walk through,
tell us two points in space that you can see within Near range and roll +WIS.
On a 10+, the spaces become connected - anyone can move from one to the other with
a single step across the folded space, and this fold lasts as long as you need it to.
On a 7-9, the fold is unstable: either only one person can pass through safely, or the fold
is unsafe to use for some reason, the GM will tell you why.
On a 6-, you still make a connection, but it isn't between the places you wanted it to be.
The GM will tell you what went wrong.

When the Stars Align
You are able to read the stars and create a prophecy of things to come. When you Make
Camp under the open sky, instead of healing, you may stay up all night reading the stars
for a prophecy. This prophecy will tell you about a grim portent that will come to pass
unless you do something about it, but the prophecy is vague. Choose two things that the
prophecy actually tells you:
• You get the name of someone involved in the event to come.
• You get a clear mental picture of the event's location.
• You get an idea of what action will trigger the event.
• You get a vision of the event's aftermath.

And the Kitchen Sink
You can use your folds in space to pull items from anywhere, throwing
them through your portal at high speed. You can always Volley with
the Thrown and Near tags, at any time and with nearly anything

...I'm sorry. I can't seem to remember any of the rest.



They'll Never See Me Coming (Theyn)

Theyn is a drone created by VerSO in order to better understand this whole "adventuring" business that it missed out on by a few hundred years. He has some history working for White Feather, but is currently a freelance hitman. He is a quiet, somewhat intense man who opts to let his blade do most of his talking. As a consequence, he doesn't have many friends. What friends he does have think he's a sulky jackass.

VerSO worries that this line of work is stunting Theyn's emotional growth, but does not intervene. VerSO worries that it isn't a very good parent, but does not intervene.

Aspect: Training

Replace the description to No One Looks Up with the following:
	When you climb along a ceiling without talking or attacking, NPCs will never notice you, 
	if you haven't been spotted already. Anyone actively watching the ceiling always has a
	chance to see you.
	
Bonds:
I have a running bet going with ___.
___ impressed me. I need to one-up them.
___ doesn't think highly of me. How foolish of them.
___ has my back, and I have theirs.

Moves:
+ Wall Walking
	You can climb along solid walls and and ceilings as quickly as you can walk or run, regardless
	of their texture or composition. When you are climbing, you only have one hand free to take
	actions with. You may carry one person with you while you are Wall Walking, but you can't use
	your hands at all if you have a passenger.
	
+ Death From Above (STR)
	When you drop in on someone from above, roll +STR. On a 10+, choose two. On a 7-9, choose one:
		- Deal your damage with a melee weapon.
		- Kidnap them - you retreat to somewhere nearby, taking them with you.
		- No one notices you dropping in, and your target doesn't make a sound.
		
+ On A Mirror's Edge (STR)
	When you begin free running, start moving and roll +STR. On a 10+, hold 3. On a 7-9, hold 2. On
	a 6-, hold 1, but when you spend it, the GM will add a complication. You lose all of this hold
	the moment you stop moving. 
	Spend 1-hold to do one of the following:
		- Avoid or knock aside an enemy attack and keep moving.
		- Leap around, over, or through an obstacle or enemy in your path.
		- Get up somewhere out of reach or out of sight.
		
+ No One Looks Up
	(As described in Aspect: Training)
	
+ Brutal Strike (STR)
	When you attack a surprised or defenseless enemy with a melee weapon, either deal your damage or
	roll +STR. On a 10+, choose two. On a 7-9, choose one.
		- You deal your damage +1d6.
		- You knock them down or toss them aside.
		- You maim them - a limb or sense of your choice becomes useless.
		- You terrify them - they'll do anything they can to get away from you.

Ok you know what gently caress it I lied, I might run more of these on an irregular basis so go ahead and total up XP just in case. I'll use this thread for posting times and any other information. Assuming the same players, the next one would involve you guys trying to do some sort of odd jobs for money since you're a bunch of post-scarcity cool space guys but Lia still needs to eat food at a minimum.

And Theyn was totally not as sick as he thought he was.

e: You guys got all three end of session XP things imo so there's the 3 plus whatever else you got from alignment and bonds.
