Apocalypse World / How do I end a campaign?
« on: March 28, 2017, 10:59:03 AM »
Hey Y'all!

I'm nearing the end of our available time for Apocalypse World. We're about to start session 7 and because of time constraints, we'll only be able to go to session 8. (Each session is roughly 4 hours long, with 4 PCs).

Most of the PCs have 'leveled up' enough to advance moves and could retire. Threats are at the point where they are slowly being cleared/dealt with triangles are putting a lot of pressure on PCs to make decisions.

I have no idea how to 'wrap it up'. In D&D I'd have a BBEG, some loot, and an epilogue. But I'm not sure how to close it all down.

So, in your experience, how have you ended AW campaigns?

Hey folks,

I know colonial marines is a thing, but the world war 2 rpg elements, do they still exist?

Why should I try dungeon world over 5th edition?  Can y'all break it down for me in 2 or 3 short points?

He was cool with it, so we changed it. Makes it weirder, which is what he wanted! And it got weird, failing that roll brings some pretty bad things into the world.

Wow, I'm glad you brought this up. I've been playing it 'wrong' technically. I might switch over to the weird for tonight's game - would be an interesting thing to try out. The angel isn't exactly weird.

A quick rule for determining if something is a threat - Everything is a threat!

I think after your announce future badness move, I would have either.

1. Pushed the "read a sitch Question"  i.e. Would you like to read the sitch?
2. or asked, "What do you do?"

With the failed roll I would have had the car careen towards the PC in an attempt to run him over! 

i.e. The car careens towards you, iii is behind the wheel and well, you know, it's iii. He wants to kill you for what you did to his sister (what did you do to his sister?). What do you do?

(then an act under fire move might be appropriate)

Just my two cents. I'm new too and don't have a good grasp on much yet.

Damn, that is an elegant idea! Thank you sir! I've sent my players replies to their sneakiness - I'm awaiting their responses!

Apocalypse World / What Honesty Demands and PC treachery
« on: March 13, 2017, 11:36:27 AM »
Here is a situation for y'all that I'd like some thoughts on.

I play online so players can easily send me notes and lately they have been 'treacherous'

i.e. The Hardholder says, "I am installing camera's in Zit's room so that I can watch him sleep at night."

i.e. The Angel says, "I'm going to weaponize this DNA to work with Puss's DNA"

Now, all of these things are super cool, but I'm not sure what to do with the statement "What Honesty Demands."  In D&D I'd have Zit roll a perception check to see if he finds the camera. I'd give Puss a sense motive check or something to learn that the Angel is acting weird.

What the hell do I do in AW? Should players be allowed to send me PMs? SHould I reveal the contents of those PMs? How do I give the betrayed a fighting chance? (i'm their fan too!)

Thanks for your input Daniel Wood. I'll build it into the fiction for sure!

We have a weird Angel with a poor weird score. It makes Augury very interesting!
