In my quest to find the "next interesting game" for me, I started with Dungeon World, and I was excited about it. Then I really got into it, and I didn't like it, I didn't like it at all.

He explained as he took down my number that he was very sorry, but he would contact me when someone dropped out and that he cared about the amount of time each player got at the table and how much time he could hold things together to keep it entertaining. 
I can respect that, a lot.
So with a farewell and leaving the gaming store, he gave me a few links to purchase the game pdf and also to start reading up on it.
RPGNOW had the book, so that was easy to remember and it was also easy to remember the SRD site, which I thought was …
