Playing RPGs since 1996 and started delving into unconventional games somewhere around 2007. I produce a German RPG podcast called PiCast and am quite active in game design.

Besides that, I am a physicist, so I know me deal of rules. ;-)

comment How can I deal with players who are reluctant to spend resources?
I remember that in The Burning Wheel you could spend a Persona point to avoid death. We would never spend that last Persona point (once we got it).

comment Hx with a PC deliberately taking harm from another PC in Apocalypse World
So this is definitely no abuse case (and I think anyone trying to abuse this is nuts for it will really hurt). Also, getting the attention of weird things via the Mælstrom is exactly what the whole thing is about. I was planning on handing XP anyways, but Hx … I'll give it to them for getting to know the world of pain that Bob lives in. :-D

I should note that this is in no sexual context where sex moves would appeal, she just wants to be shown the pain.

comment How do I record a session?
I think this is appropriate, as he asks rather explicitly for actual play recordings, also concerned with presenting it accordingly. Which is RPG-specific.

comment Tabletop RPG experience for someone only available for short interval at a time
All of these board games are available in German in Germany. "Es war einmal …", "Ja, Herr und Meister!" and "Die unfasslichen Abenteuer des Freiherrn von Münchhausen". All of them can be found on amazon and similar stores.
