comment How can I have a campaign where not everyone shows up to each session?
"and the party knows the way back" -- top GMing tip, don't create situations where the party doesn't know the way back unless you know you have the room for a few more hours ;-)

comment What can I do when I accidentally gave out an overpowered item?
Or to put it briefly, "what would the PCs do if they learned of a Staff of the Magi in the hands of a small group of 2nd-level-equivalent monsters? Exactly"

comment How to ask nicely in Dungeon World
Thanks, or possibly I've remembered the in-gameness as an absolute when really it's just a preference.

OK, in that case I've obviously read some duff AW advice somewhere.

comment How to ask nicely in Dungeon World
I really don't know Apocalypse World, so I have no standing to disagree with this answer, but for my eduction is that the meaning of "Turn their move back on them"? Asking them OOC why their action should succeed doesn't seem to be an in-fiction event matching the move's description. What about if the sword's owner says, "sure, since you asked politely, here's my sword. It's very rude to refuse a polite request. Now, I politely request your bow. And gold. And pants".

comment How much damage should a character do when flung with Sonic Thrust?
"a hard, dense object" -- or put them somewhere in the middle of the scale between candy floss and depleted uranium shells.
