A downloadable custom playbook pair

Download NowName your own price

Two playbooks for Adam Koebel and Sage LaTorra's game, Dungeon World. Designed by me (Ben Rosenbloom) and Trevor Murray for our collection, Incomplete Adventurer.

The Monk is a philosophical combatant, at home both on the road vanquishing foes and in the monastery debating the finer points of metaphysics. An attempt at creating some distance from the implied orientalism of the traditional d&d monk while retaining the fun fantasy of pummeling bad guys with your bare fists.

The Verdant commands the power of life itself. Through their hands, plants grow, wounds knit themselves closed, and creatures grow and change. The Verdant is an inversion of a sort of the Immolator. At their touch, life flourishes. Where destruction reigned, creation returns. The Verdant is a potent healer and support playbook, with a wide range of utility through the plants they grow.

Hi, I wanted to let you know that I riffed off this (and other influences) to create a scientific romance version, the Planetary Scholastic (https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/398661/The-Planetary-Scholastic-Playbook), for sci-fi 'monks' like Jedi or Bene Gesserit - would love to send you a copy, what's the best way to do that?

That sounds awesome!! Thanks so much for letting me know! And it's very generous of you to offer, but I was so interested that I went ahead and bought the whole bundle right away! It's my absolute pleasure to support cool games 😊

That's super kind of you! I'm still pretty new to designing in this system, so any comments (or reviews!) really greatly appreciated!

Hey, just wanted to say that, all the way in 2022, I have a player who decided to be The Verdant and it's going great. Thanks for keeping these up!
