The Latest Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day Posts - Volume 5 :)

Jack's Toolbox - Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day - So, Swords & Wizardry is one of many game systems that are indicative of the “Old School Renaissance  movement in tabletop RPG gaming. The idea is that RPGs these days aren’t like they were “back in the old days,” and that we’ve lost something in modern games that we had back then...

HexGeneration - Swords & Wizardry: Stepping Back to Move Forward -When Tenkar’s Tavern put out the call for bloggers to talk about Swords & Wizardry I pretty much dismissed it at first.  I have a love for all things OSR and I felt there was no need to sing the praises of one game over another.

Aeons & Augauries - Of Swords & Wizardry - It's Swords & Wizardy Appreciation Day. On this day it's only fair to share one of the best evenings I ever had and Swords and Wizardry was part of it.

Under Siege - Happy S&W Appreciation Day! - Swords & Wizardry is, at its heart, a rules light game where young and older players alike can gather call create characters, roll some dice, and share stories of adventure.  It does so by keeping things simple while giving power to the story teller (the DM or GM) to create worlds of adventure to be explored and plundered.

D20 Dark Ages - Why Swords & Wizardry is the #1 RPG - It was a toss up between Swords & Wizardry and Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG in my mind. And I love both, and I wish could play more of each. Both harken back to "Old School" game design...

Back to the Dungeon - Swords & Wizardry: Ot the Little Game that Could! - Swords and Wizardry! What a game! It invokes this primal primitive version of gaming...

The Iron Tavern - Is Swords & Wizardry The One? - What makes Swords & Wizardry stick out amongst the other “retroclones” other there?

Carjacked Seraphim - Totemic Paladin (S&W Appreciation Day) - In my Queston Campaign, all those years ago, I replaced regular Paladins with a different type of Paladin called a "Totemic Paladin." These Paladins had powers based upon their totem animal, rather than the standard list of Paladin powers...

Barbarians of Provo - Sword and Wizardry Appreciation Day and my first ever Crypts and Things game - As you might have guessed, today is Sword and Wizardry Application Day.  This also happens to coincide with the preparation of my first ever Crypts and Things game that is scheduled to go down this Saturday.

Realms in the Mist - Here are some house rules and variants that I use in my home campaign - feel free to steal anything you find, I hope to have some more - new spells - posted this afternoon...
