Added DiffLines:

* TheApunkalypse: Befitting to its name, ''Apocalypse World'' centers around sexy, edgy, and awesome survivors braving a horrific but cool post-apocalyptic world. The principle "Barf forth apocalyptica" encapsulates the aesthetic.


* AfterTheEnd: The default is roughly fifty years after a [[ApocalypseHow Class 2]] apocalypse. What exactly happened is left up to the MC and players.

Added DiffLines:

* RolePlayingEndgame: Players can retire their characters to safety as a special Advanced Upgrade. A retired PC becomes an NPC, but unlike almost all others, the GameMaster is explicitly forbidden from messing with their lives (i.e. they get PlotArmor for their trouble). The game encourages players to retire long-lived characters with the debility mechanic, which imposes permanent penalties on their stats every time they're critically injured, -- accruing too many of them makes characters largely unplayable.

Added DiffLines:

* TheFamine: Codified as one of the basic post-apocalyptic scarcities that can serve as catalysts for in-game storylines and events.


* HumanPopsicle: The Quarantine class. They get a base full of wonderful stuff, but they don't understand the culture and they aren't prepared for the damage The Maelstrom can to one's psyche.

* OneStatToRuleThemAll: Cool and Sharp both have this reputation. The other three stats apply to fairly specific situations (Hard is for hurting or threatening people, Hot is for persuading people, and Weird is for going on bizarre psychic dream-quests), while Sharp gives you bonuses to any other roll as long follow the MC's advice, and Cool is for almost EVERYTHING else.
