After reading a converstation on the DW subreddit, i thought id have a go at designing a pacifist CC. Here’s the first draft.

When the horror of fighting has become too much, and you swear to lay down your arms and do no violence again in your life, gain the following moves immediately.
In the name of Peace
You have a new stat: Peace. Peace starts at 0, but can be raised to +3 or lowered to -3. Each time you roll +Peace, reduce the Peace stat after you have resolved the move.
When you suffer harm without violently resisting, gain 1 Peace.
When you choose to stand by and not intervene with violence to stop another’s suffering, gain 2 Peace.
When you peacefully stand firm to defend a place, person, or ideal in the face of violence or opposition, roll+Peace. On a 10+, your resolve causes the aggressor to back off. On a 7-9, they hesitate, or look for support from subordinates or superiors, the GM will tell you how.
Voice of Reason
When you speak passionately for finding a peaceful resolution to a tense, charged situation, roll+Peace. On a 10+, your words move hearts and minds, and the situation calms down. On a 7-9, Your words need some action or sacrifice to give them enough meaning – the GM will tell you what.
When you forgo your vow of nonviolence and attack someone, roll+Peace. On a 10+, your soul is stained by your disregard of your vow, lose all Pacifist moves and never take them again. In addition, you are now known as an oathbreaker wherever you go. On a 7-9, your actions are understandable, but shake your belief in your cause, set your Peace to
3. On a 6, you justify your actions as necessary and right in this circumstance at least.
