NTRPG Con - What Light at Yonder Table Be? Swords & Wizardry I See

Where the Swords & Wizardry Complete magic happened. Oh, and my knee...

Yesterday I ran a session of Swords & Wizardry Light. We played Beneath the Battered Dwarf Tavern and it was a blast.

We had the full seven that signed up and one standby that we added. Explaining the rules, generating characters, answering some rules questions and the like took about 15 minutes - then we were "in game".

They were a very focused group with good tactics and excellent "out of the box" thinking. All together the session lasted about 2 1/2 hours out of the 3 hours it was scheduled for.

It was also my first face to face session that I've run in a tad over 20 years (I run my games on Roll20 / Hangouts these days) and I learned one thing right away - I need to stand when I GM at a table. Don't ask me wy but it just seems to free my imagination and keep me focused.

Last night Rach and I were in a pick up game of Swords & Wizardry Complete run by Edwin Nagy. Holy shit but it was a blast being a part of a party of cannibal adventurers seeking the book How to Serve Man. Well done sir! Well done!

Today I run a second session of Beneath the Battered Dwarf Tavern then on to +Skeeter Green 's Rappan Athuk session. It will be a good day. A VERY good day.

Oh, there should be a very large Swords & Wizardry announcement this weekend. It will break here at The Tavern


  1. Big announcement! Is Continual Light FINALLY coming out? :)

  2. That pick up game was my favorite game of the weekend.
