I've been thinking about twisting Hard Moves around a bit - I need to look closer at the MC moves, but it'd be interesting to give players the option of telling the group, "I'm putting off that bad roll's effect for now. And I'm bumping it up in scope."
More specifically, I'm imagining being able to get Hardholder-level fallout ("oh no! my hardhold!) without being a Hardholder.
Also, this is inspired by Dwarf Fortress - I'm imagining bad construction, raids, fights, and such being triggerable by a bad roll in a personal-scale conflict, when the p.c. doesn't want to personally deal with the consequences.
Kind of a "the land and the p.c.'s are one" kind of deal. King Arthur and whatnot.
Anyone seen anything like this before?
