Apocalypse World / Apocalypse World sans MC
« on: October 07, 2015, 10:02:14 PM »
I'll be frank with you: I'm a simple man, with simple tastes, and I want to shoot some things. Unfortunately, I am the DM/MC/whatever in my group. Flat. We tried doing round robin DMing in a 5e game, and that went... Ok? I guess? But now we are back to the status quo. My question was, has anybody tried AW completely without an MC. So far, I've wholeheartedly embraced the idea of declaiming responsibility for scenic elements, names, locations and some NPC equipment, leaving almost half of it to the players. Does anybody know what would happen if the other half was dropped as well. Obviously PVP would need an impartial mediator, but those situations can be dealt with on a case by case basis. Whenever someone rolls a 6-, or takes a 7-9 with an unnamed downside, the MC moves list are there. All the other moves have their mechanics laid out in quite exact detail. Of course, I know I've missed some serious drawbacks to an MCless game, but I'm not quite sure of their specifics. Can anyone see any serious issues to this, and maybe solutions? Everyone would have to be at least proficient at the mechanics and barfing forth apocalyptica, but that is kind of a given.

Apocalypse World / Brainer gear usage
« on: October 05, 2015, 01:47:29 AM »
I would really appreciate some help with the two pieces of brainer gear I start with. Most of them are pretty obvious, but some have some features I'm not so sure about.

Receptivity drugs and implant syringe:
How long do they last for, and can someone else tag target for the brainer? A few other posts said that for as long as they last, ALL brainer moves get +1 hold and ALL brainer damage is +1 harm. But how long do they actually last?

Pain-wave projector:
When it says everyone, does it mean everyone in the area, or just who you are pointing it at?

And finally, would it be possible to buy gear that I don't start with? Not from your average shmuck, but from a specialist?

Exactly what it says on the tin. Just wondering how this is generally used, thanks!
