* I'm interested in MCing a game of Apocalypse World here
* I like bulleted lists
* I want to play with folks who aren't in any of the other PBP games with me. I want fresh blood!
* I'd like to get a post per weekday from folks
* I don't want to play this game forever, but I'd like to give it solid go
* I'm open to some LE playbooks, but some I'll probably disallow
I'm interested in exploring an apocalypse within a microcosm. Specifically, the world of Death Valley Free Prison. DVFP is a 90s era setting book for a super old game called Cyberspace. I don't care about the system, neither should you. But the idea behind DVFP has always intrigued me.
Imagine if a few generations ago, someone decided to round up all the people in prison and dump them into Death Valley. Build huge walls around the valley and just let the prisoners have at it. Send them food sometimes, let them do whatever they like. So, outside the walls of DVFP, the world is high tech and generally pretty great. But in the world of DVFP, it is a post-apocalyptic dog-eat-dog society, scarcity, violence, and of course, this is AW, so there's the psychic maelstrom.
You'd play either second or third generation prisoners, meaning the kids of bad folks, or their kids. You didn't commit a crime? Well, doesn't that suck! I'm sure you will eventually.
I've been running PBP games here for a bit. My most successful ones were Ashen Snow (an AW game) and a campaign of Lady Blackbird. My strengths are interesting characters and situations, a strong hand for dialog, and the ability to share narrative and build off of other people's great ideas.
Okay, I wanna play!:
Post your interest here. It isn't first come, first served. I will chat with all interested folks and then we'll see if we have a quorum for an awesome game.
