comment How to GM “An arresting skinner” in a balanced, fair and fun way
This answer is tripping over not knowing important parts of how AW's rules work and what the MC is allowed and required to (not) do, and sadly I have to downvote it. (Some background: The role of the Master of Ceremonies (MC) in Apocalypse World is a coordinator and collaborator, which is why they're not called the GM (they're not master over the game). Creating new moves is one of the things the MC is allowed to do, but altering a PC's move is not, and even creating new moves is not allowed if the purpose is to nerf a PC.)

comment How do the dual wield feat and versatile weapons interact?
Z.Moe, this site isn't a discussion forum. Instead of using comments to debate on multiple answers, feel free to write what you think is the conclusive answer to your own question, using the insights you've gathered.

comment Can a character Attack and Dash in one turn?
Regarding your parenthetical math: beware that Dash does not multiply movement, it adds to movement. That works out the same with one Dash, but it makes a big difference with multiple Dash actions.

tags aren't meant to be used except nominatively in text (i.e., if not talking about the tag *itself*, don't use tag markup), and that's not the right tag anyway

comment Are these escape options for a Large creature correct?
@firion What reason do you have to doubt that it would provoke an opportunity attack when not using Disengage? If the doubt is anything more complex than "I don't know, I was just checking", then it would seem that you have a more complex question about opportunity attacks, which could need a dedicated question to be answered properly.

comment Is Curse of Strahd really hard, or am I DMing it wrong?
It's not necessary to copy it word-for-word to explain how it solves the problem. The answer would certainly be improve by including an explanation of why it's the solution.

comment Can you use your bonus action to Dash on the same turn as you cast Expeditious Retreat?
I had to re-read this twice to understand it—that crucial “and then” in the spell makes all the difference in meaning and is easy to read right past.
