I started a new campaign the other day, and we're now two sessions in, using the new edition rules. They're pretty cool.

If you're going for Autumn, you might want to consider having a release party at the biggest Post-apocalyptic event in the country.

Hi there, new to the forum.

Is there a place to pre-order 2nd edition? Or is it too far out for that?

Also, how is it that you're able to preview the PDF already?  I saw the reference to the Patron account, but am not familiar with that website/program.

Sign up, donate, and get access to writing?  That sum it up?

Thanks for an awesome RPG.  We love it.

No, it still seems to be a work in progress, so no pre-ordering yet.

As for Patreon, you sign up to pay x amount of money to Vincent every time he releases one of his unfinished games, in exchange you get access to them all. I think the minimum is $1 per instalment. For Vincent's stuff, $1 per is definitely worth it.

Here's the link to the Patreon

What's going to happen to Playbooks like the Faceless?

Some of them I'll update, some of them I'll cannibalize for parts, some of them I'll leave behind!

Will there be a beta test / playtest period for AW2ndEd, or is that something for the patreon top end supporters?

Few if any of the changes we're making will need much testing. They're based on the past 5 years of play, so they're basically all pre-tested. If we decide to run a formal external playtest, it'll be short and minutely targeted.

But if we do, it won't just be for my patrons, no. I'll put out a call.

I have two questions about the new edition (which I am excited for).
  • Will there be a hardcover version of the new rules?
  • How compatible will first edition fan and limited edition play books be with the new edition?

1. We'll see.

2. I expect most of them to be mostly compatible, but any of them might not be. We aren't prioritizing it.

Thanks!

I think my brain might melt out of sheer excitement. I looked over everything available from the patreon. I have thoughts, but since I am too cheap to voice them in the proper forum and am just doing the $1 pledge, I will keep them to myself.

I really, really hope AW 2nd is more like Dungeon World it is just a much better layout of a system with better basic moves, etc.

I couldnt disagree more. Dungeon World and Apocalypse World are different beasts, and feeding rules from one into the other doesnt make sense.

IMHO, of course.

I actually agree with silva in terms of the content, though I do think there could be improvements in the layout.

Apart from the confusion with Go Aggro vs. Seize By Force, I don't think there's any problem with AW's basic moves. And I think that Vince's done a lot of work shoring up particular issue.

There's some stuff that I'd like to see from DW in AW, but that's more personal preference stuff that suits my tastes and wouldn't really make a better AW.
