A Dungeon World Wiki

The fantasy genre is brimming with intelligent (and semi-intelligent) creatures with biology and culture far beyond human.  Classic GW centers on four races: human, elf, dwarf, halfling .  These four were adopted from the early fantasy tabletop games.  GMs are encouraged to start let players help them build a fantastic world where the sentient races are as unique as they feel inspired to make them.
