Recruiting for Apocalypse World

Fifty years ago, the world ended. The skies opened up with acid rain, the seas boiled, babies were born that screamed their pain straight into the brains of their parents, and society broke down. Even those few still alive today who were around then couldn't tell you exactly what caused the end of the world, what caused society to break down as spectacularly as it did, or why the Golden Age of Legends has given way to this world of mud and crap.

There's not enough of anything to go around. Not enough food, not enough clean water, not enough light, not enough hope. There's plenty of bullets though, and fuel as long as you make friends with the local 'shine boys.

Hard holders try to keep their piece of the world from collapsing into ruin, skinners try to capture a bit of the lost beauty of the Golden Age or else make a bit of their own, savvyheads scavenge and scrounge and make the world a bit more liveable, and battlebabes and gunluggers cut through the world with a violence all their own.

So what exactly is the setting, anyway?
Apocalypse World is a post-apocalyptic game set after some undefined event that lay waste to the world. Resources are scarce, there a psychics out there, and violence runs rampant.

What do you need to play?
A copy of the playbook you want to use. Available here: apocalypse-world.com/.

You can go ahead and buy the .pdf or print copy as well, of course, but its not needed to play.

I'm holding off on posting more details, because the way the game works most of the details are discovered through conversation between the MC (that would be me) and the players, and even between the players and themselves.

Posting requirement?
I'd settle for once a week. More would be great, but let's keep expectations realistic, shall we?

If you're interested please post what character playbook you are most interested in.

Questions?
Shoot them here.

Oooh, an AW game. I'd probably be up for playing a gunlugger. How much detail do you want? Or is that something that we'll do as we go sort of thing?

Not much is needed right now, though you can start working on the basics (look, stats, gear, etc).

Somehow, z, I knew that if you bit on this game, you'd look to play an angel.

Really? I would have pegged little z for an operator or hocus, given some of his other characters.

I'm going to let this percolate for a day longer before asking for a forum. Ideally, I'd get one more player, but I'll take two.

I've wanted to play an angel since I first read AW some time ago. Not sure why.
She'll probably end up like all my other characters anyway.

Last time I played in an AW game it was with a dude battlebabe. It was actually quite fun. There were many explosions.

I have a character that I made for an AW game that Croaker started here a few years ago (Darius was a player, too), but it didn't last all that long and I really liked her build and background, so I thought I might just pull her in here, possibly with a few tweaks.

Sounds good to me. I'll work on the forum request in the morning. In the meantime, if you all want to start hashing out the basics of your characters feel free to do so. As a reminder, all of the characters know each other in passing as well.

As a quick note on names- you do not have to use any of the names provided with the playbooks. Just stay within theme, ok?

I am strongly leaning towards a stationary game with an established hardhold, at least to start the game. We'll see how it progresses from there.

I will still take one more player- any of the remaining playbooks will be fine.

For my own sake:
Merc- battlebabe
little z- angel
Red Dr4gon94- gunlugger
Marcus316- skinner

Come on Link! What's one more game? More seriously, feel free to lurk and if you do decide to jump in I will be willing to take late-comers.

Hey, have you got room for one more? I'd be keen to run a Savvyhead, if you'll have me.

Daedalus- I do have room for one more (am still waiting for Marcus to make his character, but he was looking to play a skinner anyway). Head on over to the forum, see what's there already, especially the scant details I've thrown up regarding the starting hardhold and who runs it.

Excellent, I'll have a character up tonight. Late tonight, but tonight nevertheless.

I was in Croaker's game too - I'd love to join if a spot opens up.

I played Mother, a Maestro'D - I'm not sure if that will work in your game, though, since Maestro'Ds have a base of operations.

Hey Ergo- I'm going to give Marcus until Wednesday. If nothing happens by then, we'll work you in. The game is set in a hardhold, so no worries about needing a base of ops.
