A Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day is in the Works
+Christopher Helton and I bounced the idea off of +Matt Finch . We'd like to run a Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day in April (still working on the day - stay tuned!) much like the Basic Fantasy RPG Appreciation Day that we ran back at the end of January. Matt's on board with the idea, so now it's time to reach out to my fellow bloggers and find out who else is on board as well.
All that we ask is that you post something related to Swords & Wizardry on the day in question (I'm leaning towards April 17th, which should be a Wednesday if my mental calendar is working properly). Play report, thoughts about the system, random table, new monster, spells, magic items, an encounter, reviews - whatever you want to write.
This time, I'll even sweeten the pot - one blog that joins us and posts will get a $10 credit to RPGNow, enough to land a PDF copy of Swords & Wizardry Complete, one of Frog God's Swords & Wizardry adventures or anything else. It will be a random blog that receives the $10 credit, but I reserve the right to add additional gifts to the pool ;)
You have nearly three weeks to prep your post - ample time to ready something. In the meantime, if you are interested in participating, add a comment to this blogpost with a link to your blog. I'll put out a post next Wednesday (April 3rd) with the blogs that have signed up, I'll update it on April 10th and then of course post on the Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day the links to the various blog posts as they go live. Well, as fast as I can update. Whatever day we actually run this I may need to take off from work ;)
