Character ideas and other stuff
Hey, Gm here, So at some point I would like to discuss the world with you guys the world you will be inhabiting, as player input is a big part of apocalypse world, especially the world building.

Feel free to post character ideas but be prepared that bits of them might change when the other players give there input on the world.

Character ideas and other stuff
Awesome!  Well this was a surprise posting if ever I came across one.  I'm not sure what everyone is thinking.  Are there any playbooks that are ruled out?

I'm thinking maybe the THE MAESTRO D’ or maybe a quarantine.  Curious to see what others are thinking as well but will start batting around some ideas here.

Thanks

Character ideas and other stuff
For whatever reason I was thinking MotW, but I suppose the systems are similar enough that I can swing it. Been working on a World Hack for ages now. In the other system, I usually play the flake. Is there an equivalent, or at least similar one for Apocalypse World?

Would be appropriate.  I think anyone can be a flake in this game.

I think I'd like to pair up with someone else, if they are looking to play a hardholder, maestro D, waterbearer or Hocus as the gunlugger.  I've never had a chance to play the character and I think he works better with another.  Anyone considering one of those roles?

The current names don't mean anything at the moment if you want to change them at some point, All play books are on the table, although maybe the dolphin and weasel should be the last choice.

For the Flake question, you would probably want something like the brainier, their main focus is manipulating the psychic maelstrom and generally being weird, or maybe the Savvyhead, The Savvyhead is a problem fixer, can do a bunch of weird stuff but requires a workshop,which he starts with.

Does everyone have the rule/play books?
Any questions please ask.

Re: Character ideas and other stuff
Dremmond - are you playing a Faceless?  I'm thinking two Hard based characters ins;t needed in a small group like this.  Just looking to provide variety.

so like this?

Playbook The Angel
Name: Clot
Look: scrounge wear plus utility, pretty face, one bright eye, Compact body.
Stats: Cool-1 Hard+1 Hot=0 Sharp+2 Weird+1
Moves: Battlefield grace, Healing touch
History(Hx):
  • Which one of you do I figure is doomed to self-destruction? Dusk, HX-2
  • Which one of you put a hand in when it mattered, and helped me save a life?
  • Which one of you has been beside me all along, and has seen everything I’ve seen? Hedge, HX+3
  • I am the prettiest or smartest for Hedge.
  • Dusk is my friend.

For everyone else, write Hx+1. You keep your eyes open.

Gear
You get:
  • angel kit, no supplier
  • 1 small practical weapon [sawed-off (3-harm close reload messy)]
  • oddments worth 2-barter
  • fashion suitable to your look, including at your option a piece worth 1-armor (you detail)

Character special(Faceless's Mask,Hardholder's Hold,etc)
Angel Kit
Edited for Brevity

If you and another character have sex, your Hx with them on your sheet goes immediately
to +3, and they immediately get +1 to their Hx with you on their sheet. If that brings
their Hx with you to +4, they reset it to +1 instead, as usual, and so mark experience.

Actually I think I'll do a Skinner. I've already played as a Battlebabe and Faceless, let's try something different.

History(Hx): Everyone introduces their characters by name, look and outlook. Take your turn.  List the other characters’ names.  Go around again for Hx. On your turn, ask 1,2 or all 3:
• Which one of you once left me bleeding, and did nothing for me?
For that character, write Hx-2.
• Which one of you has fought shoulder to shoulder with me?
For that character, write Hx+2.
• Which one of you is prettiest and/or smartest?
For that character, write Hx+3.
For everyone else, write Hx-1. You have no particular need to understand most people.  On the others’ turns, answer their questions as you like.

Gear

• assault rifle (3-harm close/far loud auto fire)
Serious guns (choose 2):
• hunting rifle (3-harm far loud)
• magnum (3-harm close reload loud)
Backup weapons (choose 1):
• grenades (4-harm hand area reload messy)
Armor 2 – Leather and steel armor adorned with ‘ancient’ religious symbols.  The steel portions are painted white with black or red symbols.  There is a heavy steel mesh hood and mask that complete the look giving the Chaplain a slightly monkish kind of look.
Character special(Faceless's Mask,Hardholder's Hold,etc)
If you and another character have sex, you take +1 forward. At your option, they take +1 forward too.
