Playbook: The Cultist (PBtA)
Cultist Preview Available Here
Ia¸ Ia! The dark gods of Dungeon World are beholden to you. You know their ways¸ and you speak their secrets. Those who would listen will find themselves trapped in your spell¸ brought to linger upon your every word. There is this power you have over the common people¸ this power that twists their hearts and minds. If you observe the rites and manipulate the whims of those dark things from deep below¸ you will obtain power unimagined¸ strength unknown.
Those others¸ those ones who do not bend so easily to your will¸ those 'heroes.' They whisper ill of you¸ but none know the darkness as well as one who has been born of it. They need you¸ though you know it pains them. Without your guidance¸ they would all be lost. Sometimes¸ they even believe you when you tell them that.
For you are Cultist¸ and your words have more power than those of lesser beings. A simple whisper from you is all it takes to drive them mad. When the dark things sing the song that ends the world¸ you will be there to sing along with them.
The Cultist is a playbook for the Dungeon World roleplaying game. It uses the Cult mechanic to give you suicidally loyal followers who will do anything you ask of them¸ creating a class that plays quite differently from any other.
