Oh! But there’s another aspect.
In my Cyberpunk/Apocalypse World game, which keeps the rules unchanged but uses a cyberpunk setting (the Psychic Maelstrom is the internet), the solutions in Apocalypse World aren’t a perfect fit for the game, but that makes them even more inspiring and provocative. When a corporate mercenary has to be defined as a Brute, Warlord, or Grotesque, it inspires a new way of thinking about the character. There’s friction, but it’s an exciting kind of friction (so to speak).
