What If: Frozen's Olaf as a Dungeon World Hireling

Continuing from last week's post about Frozen as a Dungeon World adventure, let's talk about Olaf. If Anna and Kristoff are the player characters, Olaf is definitely a hireling. But he doesn't really fit any of the example hirelings presented in the Dungeon World book. Since we're obviously talking about a more lighthearted game, how about a new type of hireling?

Comic Relief: The comic relief provides entertainment and companionship to a party of adventurers. While their antics may not be considered valuable, they are often unexpectedly useful. You can describe how the hireling's bumbling actions help you (however implausibly) and take +skill to a roll. If you do, treat a 10+ as a 7-9. Regardless of the result, the hireling is exposed to danger.

Olaf the Snowman

He's Olaf and he likes warm hugs. Sprung from Elsa's magical powers, Olaf is by far the friendliest snowman to walk the mountains above Arendelle. His innocence, outgoing personality and uncanny ability to disassemble himself at good and not-so-good times lead to some awkward, albeit laughable moments. He may also have the world's most impossible dream, but what he doesn't know won't melt him—or will it?

Cost: Warm hugs (not healthy at all) and dreams of summer (even worse)
Skill: Comic Relief 2
Loyalty: 2
