Princess of Power
Homebrew Dungeon World Playbook
Inspiration and Examples
This playbook is meant to be used with a game inspired by She-ra: Princesses of Power (the remake of She-ra). It draws from the different princesses in the show, but mostly from Glimmer.
Other Known characters representing Princesses of Power to me include Mulan, Elsa, Xena, Daenerys and many more.
The overall theme of this character is….
Main Attribute: Constitution
Damage Die: d8
HP: 8 + Constitution
For the Honor of Grayskull!
You have a link to a mystical place of power that allows you to draw _______ energy. Describe it. You may wield that power as a weapon, choose 2 tags:
Far (otherwise it’s near unless the hand tag is chosen)
And 1 tag:
Hand (otherwise it’s near, can’t be taken with the far tag)
When you hurl that energy at your opponents, roll+Con.
On a 10+ you deal damage.
On a 7-9 choose one (whichever you choose, you deal your damage):
