The Latest Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day Posts - Volume 4 :)



About Bruce Heard, D&D, and new stories - Ar: Walking with the Wraiths - Wraithlings have an attraction for all that is alive, young, and healthy, which explains their propensity for seeking illicit romantic encounters outside their usual circles...

I Am Teh Bagder! - Brokkans: New Swords & Wizardry Player Class + WIN A COPY OF SWORDS & WIZARDRY COMPLETE! - In honor of the Swords & Wizardy Appreciation Day set up by the Erik Tenkar of Tenkar’s Tavern, my contribution to this event is a brand new playable class of humanoid badgers called the Brokkans.

The Theoretical GM - Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day Is A Go - Though there are many similarities to be among all the various retro-clones, Swords & Wizardry has a few tweaks that I especially appreciate. Firstly is the support for both ascending and descending Armor Class - I get that the descending system was the original and most people who actually play are used to it, but as a newcomer I find the latter easier to grasp.

Hits to Kill - Save or Die - Thirty years ago, I moved from Fighting Fantasy solo gameplay books to playing Dungeons and Dragons...

West Coast Stat Views (on Observational Epidemiology and more) - Swords and Wizardry Appreciation day - I was always surprised to be a Swords and Wizardry fan.  In a lot of ways I was a bigger fan of the original basic and expert (B/X) D&D books released after the first run of Dungeons and Dragons (and contemporaneous with Advanced Dungeons and Dragons). But the adventures sucked me in...

iDungeon Crawl - S&W Appreciation Day - Part the First - Swords and Wizardry was the very first game that brought the OSR and it’s related community to my attention. Some years ago (2009 if the timestamp on the file is any indication), I was browsing the web searching for information about the older editions of D&D...

Alex Schroeder: Diary - Swords & Wizardry - In 2008, I came across M74 and discovered the “old school renaissance”. I learned about OD&D and its use of a d6 for hit-dice and weapon damage. I was intrigued and wrote M20 Hard Core. I also wrote a little random character creator for my rules variant...
