In the before times, a “shopping maul” called Rolling Acres shut down, just before the world broke. Precious little survived that breaking, but somehow, this monument to jingle did.
Why did this hulk remain standing? What community mushroomed up inside its cracked and crumbling walls? How do they eke out their day to day? What threats do they face?
I’m starting up a short run of Apocalypse World over play-by-post for the Gauntlet community. Play-by-post is an amazing way to develop characters and situations, and I’d like to share my long experience with the Gauntlet crowd, especially with one of my favorite games. We will have a bang-up time, with properly motivated players!
I’m looking for four or five interested players who can generally post at least once a day on weekdays and a couple times over the weekend. Our game will begin in November, and we’ll conclude in February 2016.
If you’re interested in running through this Gauntlet, and “Playing to find out,” let me know in the comments below. Looking for the right mix of folks, so we might have to communicate one-on-one before the game’s “full.”

Oh, and there’s one more thing. I’m going to host regular Hangouts on Air where we’ll chat about the events in the game. It will serve a couple purposes:
– Give everyone a chance to keep up on the game in case they’re interested.
– Also, it will let us gab about interesting characters and moments. If you’d like to be involved every once in awhile, cool! I’ll work out a schedule with you. If not, no problem, but we’ll probably be talking about your character. (Not you, by name… but I am a fan of your characters, remember?)
