Friday Grab Bag: Caper and Dungeon World, Baby!
Free GamesThe 200 Word RPG Challenge for 2017 has wrapped up.
Here are the winners: Winners and Finalists. Tina T. recommends the heist game Caper by Dale Elwy.
Here is Tina:
You are a group of thieves on a heist, stealing a treasure! The setting is up to you.There is an expanded RPG version and the original 200 Word RPG entry.
Challenges are secretly written on slips of paper by the players and drawn from a hat. The best part: during setup and play you put some coins on the table (action resolution is also based on a coin toss). If you manage to steal one of the coins without anyone noticing, you successfully double-cross your team and take the treasure for yourself! I love it, actual physical stealth in a heist game.

The author, Brian Holland, also has a patreon where you can support him. There is a set of DungeonHacks to make DW more like D&D. Personally, I like the differences (e.g. no set turn order). So I won't use this but perhaps you want to. The rules for diseases might be handy though. Dawit Thepchatree made a 2-pages PDF of the official compendium classes: Compendium Classes. And there is also the DW Die of Fate. This is a PDF with tables to roll on for the Game Master moves. More interesting links at the Dungeon World Newsletter.
