Apocalypse World / Hardholder loses a holding.

Two countdowns that would wreck the holding hit midnight simultaneously. The town was burned by a warlord, and then the landscape opened up and ate it. What happens to the hardholder? Thanks!

Apocalypse World / Questions: Optional experience, retire to safety.
« on: March 17, 2013, 05:03:56 PM »
I have a few questions, and not much luck searching 'em out, so:

* Are characters required to take experience?  Can they refuse it?  More specifically, are they required to take advances?  There is one player whose character is maxed out, and she doesn't want to take any of the remaining options.  One of the players says this might be contary to the anti-status quo nature of the game.

We are currently going with advancing being optional -- you can take experience (useful for some prestige-type advances where experience still gives you things), but you don't have to take advances. 

* If a hardholder type retires to safety in such a way that she remains in the game, is her holding also relatively safe too, or is that too status quoey?  Or does "retire" mean retire as well -- not a holder anymore, but personally safe?

We are currently going with the holding, which is not the main holding in the game, being relatively tall-walled and isolated, and the hocus who ruled it still rules it.  But I am not sure what to do if the holder of the main holding retires.

I think that's it.  Thanks!
