2018-10-29 Powered by the Apocalypse

Haha, Michael Prescott has a great post on his blog: PbtA for the Old School, explaining the Powered by the Apocalypse jargon to people more used to classic games. It made me chuckle.

For some perspective, check out this review of somebody who’s excited about the jargon: Justin Alexander’s Review of Apocalypse World from 2011. I wrote about it, too, in 2011. And then there are all the articles on Dungeon World I wrote, because I think these games have something of value to players of classic D&D-like games like I do.
