Game Design

Looking for my thoughts and ideas about game design? You’re in the right place.

What motivates a hero to go on an adventure?

One thing I’m really bad at when running tabletop roleplaying games like Dungeon World is finding a good reason for my players do something adventurous. Adventure stories are full of heroes leaving their homes for some reason or another. So, I thought I’d take a look at the heroes in stories I knew and figure out why they leave home to go do whatever it is they do.
