  • The best gaming advice: Talk to each other like reasonable adults.
  • Dice fudging is bullshit.
  • Ignoring rules is a sign that you're playing the wrong game.
  • Rather than hack on the rules of a game, stop to consider that a different game might better do what you want.
  • Rule Zero is bullshit.
  • System matters.

Brevity is characteristic of okeefe's answers. … It's a complete solution to the problem, in a small package. —SevenSidedDie

For this question in particular, asking other game designers for references is the right move. See also SevenSidedDie's answer. Cheers.

@wraith808 The answer doesn't read like that at all. A suggestion of particular Powered by the Apocalypse game or games would be a better answer.

Apocalypse World is inherently weird; it's not just the psychic maelstrom, but just about any move that requires roll+weird. Stripping the weird out will be unsatisfying. A lot of the weirdness provides information to the players and GM for keeping the game flowing. AW is a fantastic suggestion if you waive the “without anything weird” requirement.
