Neat! I bet that worked great.

Yeah, I felt it went great.  We'd each played or ran in a previous AW game.

Apocalypse World / Custom Moves from Space World
« on: June 02, 2013, 07:18:06 PM »
We just finished a 13 session run of a space set Apocalypse World game, mildly influenced by Firefly.  We ran with four players, all co-MCing, and I thought I'd share a few custom moves from my fronts.

First, the Garden Ship was a Grotesque threat inspired by the Lotus Eaters.  They lived off an alien fruit that had turned them into blissed-out freaks.
When you eat of the fruit roll +weird.  On 10+, you see things so clearly; ask the maelstrom one question and the MC will give good detail.  On 7-9, you feel fucking great and have a +1 ongoing to actions that get you more fruit.  On a miss, you come to a few hours later feeling unburdened... tell the group about something you love, and then forget about it (yes, forever).

For my Reavers, I broke them up into solitary, gang, and ship moves.
A single reaver has:
Don't Blink: If unattended, it disappears from any prison.  If attended and its keepers are distracted, roll +sharp.  On a 10+, it tries to escape, but you put it down.  On a 7-9, it attacks you, suffer harm.  On a miss, it's gone.
Reaver gang:
Blood in the Water: If space and fiction allows, should you enter combat with reavers, each turn sees their numbers swell in group size until the space is full.

I particularly liked how these threat/moves played out, and would love to hear how they work for anyone else who wants to run with them.

We had town at the base of Mt. Rushmore that went by "Four Faces."

I played a Battlebabe with a hard +2 thanks to advancements.  I was given a gang by the MC thanks to my seductive badassery.  It worked fine until I left them to throw in with a slave trader who had a better chance of getting me what I wanted.  I traded up.
