comment How to GM for a player who knows none of the tropes Dungeon World relies on?
What were the things that drew this player into the game? Maybe you need to start there and expand? It seems that there is a lack of awareness of more than just genre tropes due to his intense focus. So perhaps there are hooks in his original interests that could draw him more into the world.

I just went over the Paladin sheet, @SevenSidedDie. Besides describing a halberd and giving some idea what might be included in adventuring gear, what tropes are you having trouble with, exactly? And if you aren't relying on tropes in play, where does the trouble come from?

comment Random weather in flight-centric campaigns
Actually, I think picking a year and using weather data for analogous locations is a really good idea. You don't have to simulate weather at all, and get the level of detail you were after. Time in-game doesn't have to proceed in lockstep with reality, either.
