I know there's a lot of new blood here at Snail's Pace eager to do some AW (myself included), so I'm gonna try my hand at some Apocalypse World MCing.
I've been reading Alan Weisman's very awesome The World Without Us
and watching History Channel's considerably less awesome Life After People
, so I'm presently infatuated with a non-specific apocalypse resulting ultimately in a world mostly devoid of humans but teeming with rampant, dangerous life.
I'm a sort of visual person, so I put together a little collection
of post-apocalyptic imagery I liked. Specifically, the pieces that inspire me most are these screens from a game called Enslaved: Odyssey to the West
(which is itself notable as a future, post apocalyptic adaptation of Journey to the West, which hits pretty much all of my buttons):

As much as I'd like to include all the fantastic players already here, I know there's a whole crowd of folks like me waiting to play, so I'd like to give them the first attempt. We'll probably only use playbooks from the main rulebook, simply because it's my first shot at AW and, well, I only have those playbooks. If you're interested, post here with your intent, what playbooks you'd be most interested in, any concepts you've got rolling around in your head, and/or any brainstorming on the setting and/or its apocalypse! I'm not sure how many folks makes for a decent game, so any feedback or advice from any of the more experienced MC is more than welcome!
