Shifting Image [Dungeon World Playbook Bundle]

Watermarked PDF

This collection of playbooks with wonderful cover art done by Nick Ladd has six new classes for the RPG Dungeon World. This bundle is dedicated to shapeshifters, deceivers, and those who would distort the perceptions of others. 

False Innocence: Ever wanted to play a psychotic knife wielding child as your character? Probably not, but here’s your chance! Either being possessed by an evil entity, or an alien organism in disguise, or just a plain murder obsessed kid, this class specializes in in manipulating your victims and then stabbing them when they least expect it. The class can influence others by giving them the Innocent, Guilty or Child-Like tags. The False Innocence excels at using these tags to maneuver themselves out of harm by capitalizing on the disposition it puts others at.

Grand Illusionist: A spellcaster dedicated to weaving illusions. Your mastery of the unreal is so great that you can give textures, scents, sounds, and even tastes to your illusions. You can draw large crowds and summon illusionary troupes to help you in your performances. If you need to move around yourself and your allies, or even need to make a quick escape from others, you can use Swap Place to relocate yourself and your companions. This class will be most effective in the hands of very creative players.

Kumhio: A oriental fox trickster that feasts on the hearts and livers. While possessing a more limited range of shapeshifting powers than the Shapeshifter class, the Kumhiop’s advanced moves can generate additional equipment and outfits to aid in its deception. You can even possess and control other people to assist in your shenanigans. Less excitingly, you’re pretty good at digging holes too. But that’s an easy way in a graveyard to get some hearts and livers. Oriental counterpart to the Eater Of Dead from the Dark and Twisted bundle.

Mimic: Every adventurer’s least favorite monster, the poster boy of cheap GM kills, is now a playable class. Choose what type of object you disguise yourself as and wait for the perfect opportunity to strike. You can move around on your own, but your mobility is lacking. Don’t worry though, your easy for your teammates to carry around and later on you can grow legs and arms at will. Or use the ageless tactic of waiting for your foes to come to you! This class excels at stacking on the hurt with surprise attacks, form dealing extra damage to tearing people’s limbs off. And if all else fails, stay still. Hide in plain sight as a mundane object. They’ll never know.

Perseus Knight: AKA the Mirror Knight. You’re a warrior who utilizes glass-plated armor and weapons that specializes in repelling magic. Don’t let the GM’s all powerful spellcasters keep you down, reflect those spells back at them and then cut them down. Their frail wizard robes won’t stop your enchanted glass weaponry. You also have the ability to show people terrible visions when they stare into the reflections of your glass-coated gear. You can show them their fears, what they desire most, how things could have been for them, and things they cannot face.

Shapeshifter: All in the name. You play an alien creature that can change its appearance. You can also reshape your body and swap your stats around. Much like the Grand Illusionst, the more creative a player can get the more effective this class’s powers can be utilized. Though this class has more in common with John Carpenter's ‘The Thing’ than your traditional shapeshifter. You’ve been warned.

I second this, I like the sound of some of these, but not quite enough to splurge without reading a good review

Product Information

File Size:
2.13 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
