Apocalypse World: Burned Over Hackbook

Apocalypse World: Burned Over Hackbook

Watermarked PDF

Apocalypse World: Burned Over is a pretty deep redesign of Apocalypse World, suitable for play across wider age groups and more general audiences. No sex moves, a more reigned-in take on violence, less adult horror in the grotesquerie. 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.

It includes everything the players need to play, but as MC, you’ll still need the Apocalypse World MC book.

So is this going to be integrated into a hypothetical third edition?

Also curious to hear any responses on this!

Or is there a hardback/print version available or being planned?

I'd like to know how many pages this document contains and a table of contents if it's possible. I already have a sample version of burned over: basic moves and standart moves 1 page each, and a few playbooks like Vigilante and Unalone. Is there anything else?

Wonderful revision! I'd love to see a physical print or an expansion into a full game in the future.

So what is the "Apocalypse World MC book"?

Is it a playbook?

Is it in the 'Extended Refbook'?

It's not second edition, correct?

I believe it *is* the second edition rulebook that's being referenced. That's typically what I interpret by "not yet a stand-alone game".

Lol! I just finished reading Apocalypse World and less than a week ago this is released. The original system seems great and robust. So, if anyone can tell mi if this is worth getting (which I'll probably will anyway) do tell

Well, its more of a revision of the game. It tones down the ultraviolence & sex stylings and completely revises the playbooks. I think the xp system is a lot better, the barter system less intrusive to game flow, and I love that it got rid of the +1 Stat as a Move options. The Moves are more streamlined and Do Battle is much better than Seize by Force.

Ultimately, I think that Burned Over is a bit more grounded than AW. AW is more Beyond Thunderdome and Burned Over is more Mad Max. Every straight AW game I've seen or played has gotten very weird and kind of "high fantasy". Burned Over can still do that, but it doesn't push you that way like AW does.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
