I feel like this might be a bit silly for the RP, but would it make sense for my character to have some Conan books that they use as a kind of religious text?
Also I love how you've taken tabletop rules (Definitely Apocalypse World, possibly The Burning Wheel) and opened them up and streamlined them for classical forum play. I see what you're doing there.
1. I see no reason why not, though I might say to not do CONAN specifically but rather "obvious Conan Reference Comic" so that we have more flexibility.
2. It's just AW. I didn't even really streamline the rules so much as remove them and keep the aesthetic. The guild is great for many things. Tabletop play is not among them. In any case, thanks! @Dark Cloud
I somehow feel like that won't be a unique occupation in the Post Apocalypse.
Though I would suggest, based on this very limited information, not making a character who you'd not at least *begrudgingly* keep around. This is a story which involves a community.
Most communities deal harshly with murderers, even in the post-apocalypse. Having fewer hands on deck when the population is already small is bad news bears.
Now, a gun-for-hire? That's a murderer who's USEFUL, so you might tolerate him as a necessary evil. A town guard with a penchant for going overboard? Also probably a necessary evil in the post-apocalypse.
