Ghost Lines: Mini-game AW hack thing

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Hey there. This is what I'm designing/running right now. It's a 3-page micro-hack based on Apocalypse World, Dishonored, and Ghostbusters.

Our World of Dungeons world got destroyed in a supernatural cataclysm, so we decided to move the timeline forward 1,000 years and play a new game. This is the result.

It might be playable by people who aren't us, who knows? I figure some of you will probably want to give it a whirl. I'm happy to answer questions.

Scars and Horrors must be filled in clockwise, but can players initially start filling in the dials anywhere they want?

What is the difference between clearing and silencing a ghost? What sort of actions have been necessary to silence a ghost?

Hello. This is that person who was tinkering with Ghost/Echo. This is a rough draft so far, if you want to take a look at it :D

Oh snap! Very inspiring!

David: Yep. And yeah, good questions! :)

김유근: ZeroOne looks cool!

Groovy. I like the tightly-focused advancement system... imagine a DW version: "Slay a dragon", "Plumb 3 dungeons", etc.

That steel move is pretty interesting, although if you're rolling at -1 or worse, it's actually in your interests to pick the worst option as not the worst option.

In other words, the "missing" option actually gives you more selective control than the 7-9, so if you're likely to get it, you probably want to pick the most innoccuous fate.

Could you double up the consequences on a miss? So the GM chooses and you get the one you didn't want?

Blogger John Harper says:  

Hi Josh! Yeah, the Steel move has that problem. A few playtesters have pointed that out, and I'm writing a tweaked version of the move. Thanks for the feedback!

How difficult would it be to play if you've never played 'Apocalypse World'?
