Apocalypse World / Moves with nothing interesting on a miss
« on: June 27, 2012, 02:49:00 AM »
One of the great things about AW moves is that they always result in something more interesting than if the move didn't happen. http://www.lumpley.com/comment.php?entry=594 “On a miss, it's never nothing, it's always something worse.” Right?

But then I read the Skinner's “Artful & gracious” move: “On a miss, you gain no benefit, but suffer no harm or lost opportunity. You simply perform very well.”

That not only fails to specify something bad on a miss; it seems to *mandate* nothing bad on a miss.

Is this a bug that needs fixing? Did this slip through the net in editing? What's the recommended bad stuff to make a miss interesting for the “Artful & gracious” move?
