White Box Companion for Swords & Wizardry Released by Barrel Rider Games

The White Box Companion for Swords & Wizardry was just released by Barrel Rider Games "introducing five new classes: Bard, Druid, Paladin, Ranger and Thief. While none of these classes were around in 1974, White Box Companion streamlines each of them and adds new options for players while keeping the same simplicity and elegance of Swords & Wizardry White Box. All in an easy to read 16-page digest format!"

+james spahn has done good work with Labyrinth Lord and recently started working on Swords & Wizardry Supplements. His Player's Companion for Swords & Wizardry was well received.


  1. This idea: splitting off the optional characters into their own booklet, is great.

    It would be hard to get the druid spells in though.

    1. Scott, actually I hemmed and hauled about Druid spells and eventually just decided to give them full access to Cleric spells. Given the more focused spell list for White Box, it seemed like the best route to go. Combine that with some weapon and armor restrictions, some basic wilderness abilities and things just fell together naturally - if you'll forgive the pun.

      I figured that if referees want to edit or limit druid spells, that's up to them as it suits their own games.
