The way i remember the guard fight i rolled a sucess (10+) to try to kill him (with my blade already to his neck).
So, you had your knife to this guy's throat. The MC didn't name him? Tsk, Tsk. First mistake.
Did you want something from him? Or were you just killing him? That's the first question. If you were like "I put my knife to his throat and back him the fuck down or I slice him." That's a move (Going Agro. On a 10+, they have to choose: force your hand and suck it up, or cave and do what you want.)
If you were just "I'm a cut this dude. I fucking open his throat." The MC's first thought should be whether that's even a move. He's got his NPC in the Crosshair's right? Maybe the guard is bleeding out at your feet when the sniper in the tower fires.
He apprently was heavly armored which i dident know, because i forgot to ask.
It's not about whether you ask. The MC should be making apocalypse world seem real by telling you shit and inventing shit. The guard has armor fits the fiction. You're not going to see everything or know everything ahead of time. But, that's not really important. Is the guard in the MC's crosshairs? Is he thinking all the time about killing off his own NPCs, or is he invested in his NPCs rather than the PCs of whom he should be a fan? That's the issue. Why not have the guard dead and then make his next move?
So, let's give the MC the benefit of the doubt. He's a fan of your character and he wants to make your life interesting. His guard is just a tool that's he's kept alive for a bit. He has some options like offer you a choice
. "You can kill this guard but you're acting under fire, because they've got a sniper in this big tower. You hear a ping as a bullet ricochets off the rock at your feet. What do you do?" That's a move.
Then he got a shot off and a sniper tower I dident know about either, again I dident ask since they where never mentioned, fired upon me.
What does "then he got a shot off" mean? The MC doesn't roll dice, so either the MC says "he takes a shot and misses you" or "He takes a shot. That's 2 harm to you."
Again, you don't have to know about shit like the tower. If the MC is making apocalypse world seem
real and responding with fuckery and intermittent reward
, a sniper tower is perfectly within reason. He shouldn't be dealing harm here, you rolled a 10+ but he could definitely have a sniper in the tower.
got a partial sucess, killed him and thats when i got jumped.
There aren't any rounds in AW. You've got the wounded guard bleeding at your feet and the sniper has just fired at you. The MC says "What do you do?" If you say I'm going to finish off this wounded guard," it's a valid MC move to say something like "You can kill him, but you're going to be acting under fire because of the five guards that are running out of the tower." Or the MC could be thinking, that's Seizing by Force (On a 7–9, choose 2:
• you take definite hold of it
• you suffer little harm
• you inflict terrible harm
• you impress, dismay or frighten your enemy)"
Did the MC offer you the choices? Or did he just deal harm? You didn't roll a miss, so the MC shouldn't be making a harm move here. But if you don't choose "suffer little harm" he can totally deal harm as established. And he's got dudes and snipers established.
When i attempted to look for a way out of there using sharp I failed and was hit for five damage and knocked out.
If that roll was a Miss, the MC can make a move, as hard a move as he likes. Deal harm as established (he's got dudes and snipers established).
After i awoke i was at their boss, who i told i was looking for work as an assassin. He wouldent hear about it and i was hauled away by 2+ guys (sans everthing i had) to be hung up and left to rot.
The MC is definitely not a fan of this PC. Why put you in front of the boss who is unresponsive and then haul you away from the boss if not to belittle you?
When i tried to escape i failed, again.
I don't even know what this means. You do something to escape. The MC asks you to roll. You roll a miss and the MC makes some kind of move and asks "What do you do?"
After loosing everthing, suffering damage, making a enemy of the most powerful hardholder npc in the first 30 minutes, and being hung by my hands over a gate out of the city; i just figured i couldent play the aggressive guy that i wanted to, so thats why i gave up on him.
Play with better MCs.
