Advancement
Experience and advancement works a little differently in Apocalypse World than in most gaming systems. You receive experience in the following ways:

  • Whenever you fail a roll, you mark experience, and the MC gets 1 hold on you!
  • Whenever you reach Hx+4 with another character, you mark experience, your Hx resets to +1, and you learn a secret, habit, or quirk about them!
  • Whenever a move tells you to mark experience, you mark experience, and also do whatever else the move says!

When you’ve marked all five of your experience boxes, you erase them – and you get to choose a shiny new Advancement from the list below!

  • +1 Cool (Max +3)
  • +1 Hard (Max +3)
  • +1 Hot (Max +3)
  • +1 Sharp (Max +3)
  • +1 Will (Max +3)
  • Learn a new move from your Specialty list
  • Learn a new move from your Specialty list
  • Learn a new move from the Personal list
  • Learn a new move from the Personal list
  • Learn a new move from any list
