So Andy K told me this morning about this movie, The Blood of Heroes
, which is apparently pretty great – the writer-director was involved in 12 Monkeys, Blade Runner and Unforgiven – and stars Rutger Hauer and Vincent D'Onofrio as post-civilization sportsmen, who of course are traveling across the wastes to the world championship of some insane hyper-violent minimal take on football. The small villages they travel through are honor-bound to play against them, and no matter who wins there's a big feast to honor them because the village is just so happy to have anything of any interest in their lives.
And as he's talking, I realize, shit, this is just a few playbooks away from an Apocalypse World game.
Figure there's a Captain playbook, kind of a mashup between the Touchstone and the Chopper? You'll need a Runner playbook of some sort – make the graphic from a photo of a jammer from some roller derby team. And probably also, rather than (or in addition to) sex moves, there are all kinds of moves for feasting with your opponents, or feasting in general. The rest I don't know. I'm undecided on exactly how the sport they play works, and whether it's called Apocalypse Ball or actually Rolfball.
What else we got?
