If you read this blog you should already have an idea of what the Swords & Wizardry Core Rulebook is. If not, the PDF link is on the left - it's a free download, enjoy.
This is a conversion of the PDF S&W Core Rulebook to Mobi (read "Kindle") and epub (read "just about every other e-book reader on the market"). So this isn't a review of the rules in question, it's a review of the conversion of the format.
Simply put - charts always suffer in the translation from PDF to any of the e-book formats. The charts here are serviceable, but not on par with PDF / dead tree. That being said, as a reference to look things up quickly at the gaming table without the need of lugging along a book, this is a great solution.
and then "POOF", it was gone from the RPGNow store. i'm beginning to think I'm cursed or something... i need to grab the Pathfinder version before it goes too...
