Apocalypse World, Ironwall – Session 00

Kim, Kate, Amanda, and I get together to build an Apocalypse

We’re using the new Burned Over playbooks that Vincent’s releasing for “PG13 Apocalypse World.

(I don’t care about the rating, I DO care that the moves and playbooks feel more elegant and match much better what I’m looking for out of our relationship with the Maelstrom.)

All the other players are new to pbta-games. I’m new to AW itself.

Three women, playing three women, and no one picked the Lawgiver/Hardholder, so Imma put a real asshole in charge of the settlement and see if we can’t get a little Patriarchy Smashing Revenge Fantasy going…

I’m excited.

Together with an assembled army of ghosts, they wield forces that draw Infinity’s attention, but close the wound.
