PbtA

"Powered by the Apocalypse", a game based on the rules system of Apocalypse World.

Such as system is likely to feature playbooks, an Master of Ceremonies (MC), MC principles and hard moves, and the miss-partial hit-hit dice mechanic of Apocalypse World.

Interestingly the dice mechanism of Apocalypse World is a downward spiral with moments of unconditional success. This sometimes meshes poorly with the settings of some games that adopt it.
