004 Dungeon World Moves
A solo-rant for people new to Dungeon World or veterans who want to understand moves better. I talk about what they are, what the basic pattern is, why the "irritating" advice "Don't say the name of your move" is important, how the levels of success match up to D&D combat rolls, and talk about moves as a social contract.
