Chainsaw: done. It has autofire! This makes me happy, it's a funny use for the tag.

Yeah, the Playbook is sitting right next to me. It got handed out at Gencon with Apocalypse World books purchased there.

I played it at GenCon! It was exactly right, violent and tragic. I'll tell the story in a bit.

Bret Special

If you and another character have sex, you may give them the Faceless PDF.

Can I invoke the Maestro D' special move on that, as somebody who sort of contributed to the playbook? Travel expenses are a pain in the ass, and I've been kind of trying to cut back on casual hookups lately, regardless of the other party's tempting special moves.

This is great stuff, I really look forward to seeing the finished Faceless Playbook. Where, when, and how may it be obtained?

Vx said it was a GenCon exclusive, much like the Maestro D' was a preorder exclusive.

Alternatively, take everything from this thread, fire up your desktop publishing software of choice, and have at it. ;)

Ouch, too bad. Living in Sweden prohibited going to Gen Con for a new playbook.

Yeah, but I don't have mad skills like that. Too bad. I hope it will eventually see the light of day for all non Gen Con attendees.

Any chance that the Faceless Playbook will be found at other conventions, such as SPIEL 2010 in Essen?

For the Faceless, add to the list: I'm Right Here

I'm thinking about the way the Faceless rises out of the shadows when everyone's looking around for him and of course cannot find him or her.

Tweak mechanics to taste. My untested inclination is that on 10 or better, the player distributes 3 Harm among targets as he or she chooses. 7-9 might be 1 Harm to one target, maybe.

Best, Ron
I like this a lot. A very Jason Voorhees-esque teleportation thing. I think better than Harm might be a +1 forward to represent the 'holy shit' of your arrival.

Yeah! You could deal 1 s-harm to everyone present and hostile.

You could even make it a roll, +wierd, +sharp or +cool, I don't know. On a 7-9 you deal 1 s-harm to everyone present, and on a 10+ you both deal the s-harm and also make your entrance by killing an NPC of your choice.

Seems like a +weird roll to me.

Aww, are you really keeping it exclusive, Bret?  Though I can't possibly deny it's yours to do with as you wish, I think that's a shame.
