Je me suis juré de ne jamais plus investir un kopek sur la plateforme BBE tant qu'il ne m’auront pas livré mon Pavillon Noir.
J'attendrai donc que les jeux ppa de 500NDG soient disponibles à l'achat sur un autre site ou en boutique.
C'est un crêve-coeur pour moi qui ait toujours soutenu Narrativiste Editions, puis 500NDG, ainsi que toutes les sorties ppa francophones, mais je ne renierai pas mon serment.

Une explication claire de pourquoi les "Moves" d'Apocalypse World, ç'est de la bonne came.
So thinking about another thing that I find important about AW and its offspring that I haven't seen discussed yet (if it has been, please point me the right way).

There are no "safe" rolls.
I was at DnD game recently where my wizard was out spells and I took quite a few shots with my crossbow despite the very thin likelihood that I was going to hit anything. Also whenever a search check was called for, everyone rolled even if their modifier was negative on the off chance they might succeed.

I call these safe because there isn't a downside to attempting and failing them. No consequence and no importance.

If I tried the same thing in AW such as, for example, reading a situation no matter what I roll the situation changes the situation even a little. Maybe the MC is gentle or maybe not but the act of taking action or making a move always changes the game state (if I'm interpreting the rules properly).

In that same combat, my wizard (probably a brainer now) would be hiding and not taking crossbow potshots because he'd know if he stuck his head up he could get hit. He'd be desperately doing something else to help out or get away. Or he'd be taking those risks and hoping he hits someone in an eye or something.

And I wouldn't have spent 30+ minutes rolling unimportant attack checks that I was never going to pass anyway.

This results in the dice becoming significant, I think. Every time we need dice, the roll matters. And that seems to be an important part of the underlying design behind the mechanics.

Thoughts? Am I off base? Neat applications?

Une appli amusante qui vous permet de voir vraiment comment est la luminosité sur Pluton à midi.
Un truc de geek, quoi !

La version française du petit jeu allemand Karnivore Koala vient d'être débloquée.
Pour 25 euros, frais de port compris, vous allez vous aussi pouvoir faire des jeux de mots vaseux sur ces adorables petites bêtes.
Et c'est jouable à 8 joueurs (voire même 10 si vous prenez l'extension de 44 cartes pour 10 euros de plus).

Une bonne description de ce qui rend Apocalypse World si attachant à mes yeux.
Why Powered by the Apocalypse?
Maybe you already know it, maybe not. I'm in the process of writing a Powered by the Apocalypse role-playing game: Nahual . I'm Mexican, so this is a Mexican game, based in the universe and works of (also Mexican) artist and graphic novelist  +Edgar Clement...

Voila un jeu allemand (mais rédigé en anglais) qui vaut le détour.
Les illustrations sont très fun, l'humour omniprésent et le gameplay à l'air assez sympa.
Cerise sur le gâteau, les frais de port sont inclus dans le prix, contrairement à tous ces jeux d'outre-atlantique qui coûtent une blinde à faire venir en France.
Et si le financement dépasse 25.000 euros, on aura peut-être une version française, qui sait !

Un jeu original basé motorisé sous Apocalypse World et qui pourrait plaire aux enfants, ça vaut le coup d’œil, je pense.
Epyllion Social Media Stretch Goals

+Marissa Kelly received this letter from the Council of Dragonia. They've offered to expand the NPC Dragon Deck for the Epyllion Kickstarter if we complete tasks for them! One of the first tasks is to reshare this post 10 times across G+. There are plenty of other tasks ranging from providing selfies with a young dragon to having lots of people join the Epyllion community. 

With your help, the NPC Dragon Deck can become even more awesome! Let's get flying!
