New Dungeon World Starter: Lovecraftian

I had to give my Gibbering Ooze a good new home...

"We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far."

-H. P. Lovecraft

New Monster

Gibbering Ooze
Solitary, Terrifying, Amorphous
Countless jaws (d10+2 damage 1 piercing)
15 HP
1 armor
Ignores Armor
Special Qualities: Gibbering causes -1 on all rolls, Immune to normal weapons, Vulnerable to fire. Will retreat to heal if damaged by ordinary means and drops to zero HP. Fire damage to zero HP will destroy it forever, If gibbering is somehow deciphered message usually useful.(Example: “Only fire will end me; please send me.”)

A Gibbering Ooze is a horrible hybrid of a Black Pudding, Shoggoth and Gibbering Mouther. It resembles a writhing mass of ooze covered with dozens of randomly placed eyes and gibbering mouths, of different sizes and shapes. 

Instinct: Consume

Custom Move:
When you first see the putrescent mutant mass of flesh, roll+WIS. On a 10+ your mind overcomes the horror in front of you and you may act normally. On a 7-9 choose one:
- You flee from the creature.
- You stand transfixed by its horror.
- You run crazed towards it, weapon swinging indiscriminately.


On a fail choose one of the above and lose one point of Wisdom.

Goodbye Goblin Gully

I have posted several Dungeon World conversions of Dyson Logos' popular Goblin Gully adventure in the past. I emailed him and asked permission to do so. However, I have noticed his position on his site has changed.

To quote:

"Just to be clear about these adventures – they are the Copyright of Dyson Logos.
While I encourage you to take my maps and use them for your non-commercial uses including posting them to your blogs, my adventures are 100% under my copyright. So if you want to modify or reformat one of my adventures for your own use, that’s totally cool, but they cannot be republished in this edited / reformatted format.

In other words: If you want a version of one of my adventures in PocketMod format, or re-statted for use with GURPS Magic or another system, go ahead and do it but do NOT post it to the internet, to your blog, or wherever else.

If you have a book where my adventures have material released under the terms of the OGL, you will note that the adventure title remains Product Identity, as do the maps. So if you want to use the OGL to republish my adventures, then be sure to include a new map and title.

Therefore I am deleting all copies of my adaptions of Goblin Gully from my blog, the Tavern, etc. If you have a copy feel free to use privately but PLEASE do not post on the internet. Thanks.

Howard action for your own improved version of Conan the Destroyer with some additional screenplay adds by way of Lankmar.
