Apocalypse World / Re: How would you handle a "Delay Action"?

It might not be a move at all, like you say. It might be just narrating, and waiting for the GM to narrate some more. The PC isn't really doing anything, he is waiting to see what Bobby does.

But isn't the rules then that the MC makes a Move?

MC: "So Bobby works himself into a rage, and suddenly screams "Fuck you, you fucking fucker" and draws his pistol, shooting hot lead at you. What do you do?"

Again with my "how do you do X from game Y" question.

So Bobby is acting all agitated, and I think he may be ready to escalate into violence. I don't want to be the one to start the shooting, so I wanna wait and see what he does.

What's the move?

In "other" games, this might be using a Delay Action on my Initiative. Then pulling out my shooter once I see Bobby going for his gun.

But here?

Acting under fire? Or is this just Going aggro, but with some "conditions"?

Thanks, that is all useful!

I guess I'm still hung up on the granular way of dealing with these things in "other games".

But so are my players, and telling them that "grabbing that door" has no effect, and that mechanically he could just have said "I dive for cover" with the same chances of success sound ... strange.

I guess we still think of these things too much as a tactical board/war-game.

I'm thinking Riot-police / bulletproof shields, or maybe just large pieces of old cars that get grabbed and used for protection.

Is this just extra armour? No mechanical effect?

Just how would one use Take someones will, anyway? It seems like all it does is give the ability to hurt someone, not make them want to do something.

Is it used as leverage then, to force them to obey or face pain?

I am thinking a corpulent, pale and unpleasant Navigator called Nostronox or something. A nasty little man who has a thing for getting into peoples heads to feel their feelings, as he doesn't really feel much himself. Some sort of trauma in his past made him all dead inside, and now unable to feel himself he preys on others emotions when possible.

A psyker who can mess with peoples heads is useful to have around, and if he hadn't been useful and protected by the guild I'm sure he wouldn't have been tolerated onboard for very long.

Perhaps the Captain (or the commander) actually managed to scare him once, and now he follows them around as much as possible, doing as they command or request, just hoping that he may cause another emotional outbreak.

Whaddaya think? Doable? Fits with the others? (Well, "fit in" is not the word. Compatible with the game?)

Sure, I wasn't quite sure just how close to 40K lore you wanted to stick. ;ind you, in Dark Heresy you have the Templar Calix, which are pretty much Jedi as far as I can tell :)

But an obese Adept or a freaky Psyker could be good fun. The Hierophant too, though if we're not doing "real" 40K I'd be a bit for a loss as to just how the religion angle "works".

I've played and run PbP games before, and I like it very well. Your method sounds fine to me.

I'd like posts about once a day, as I find I lose interest if many days pass between turns. Anything more than that will probably not work over time.

Perhaps a Mystic Warrior, then. They read a bit like a Jedi knight, but suitably 40k-ed up it needs big pauldrons and skulls :)
