A Dungeon World Wiki

In Dungeon World, tags are terms used to describe things.  Items, gear, even places and monsters have tags.

Some tags have a specific effect on game mechanics: increasing damage done, decreasing damage taken, providing a bonus to a particular ability modifier, etc.  Other tags simply assist in the construction of the fiction like establishing the length of a weapon and thereby how near your enemies need to be for a character to make a Hack&Slash move with it.
