The relationship the X-Men have with Limbo and Belasco has always fascinated me. In my AW-Hack, the eXorcists, Limbo has been without a ruler since Magick, Colossus’s little sister, left. It’s been a brutal series of coups that have spilled over to Earth. It’s up to the eXorcists: Magick, Sunspot, Old Man Creed, Mystique, Domino, and Cloak to settle things in Limbo.
I’m using the brand spanking new Apocalypse World: Burned Over Hack book to make this go. This is a light hack of AW:BO. I’m adding power tags. I think the tags in AW are pretty strong, mini-moves. They’ll do the work just fine and I’m reusing a mechanic that’s already present. My changes are small for this first iteration. So far I’ve matched AW:Burned-Over playbooks to the eXorcist team based on how I see their role on that team. I’ve added power tags which I’ll explain more about later. I hope to get 4 playbooks done before RinCon in Oct. I’d like as much playtesting in before GauntletCon2019.
“In many ways, if we were to create Apocalypse World today, Burned Over is the game we’d create. It’s not yet a stand-alone game (although it may become one in time). It’s a “hackbook”: a zine that includes all the playbooks, playsheets, and rule changes from Apocalypse World proper.In many ways, if we were to create Apocalypse World today, Burned Over is the game we’d create.” -from Lumpley Games site.
Let’s make this our regular thing!
