Bat in the Attic - Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day - Bodenberg Castle - I chose to use Swords and Wizardry as the foundation for my Majestic Wilderlands supplement because of all the retro-clones it was the one I felt to be the closest to an ur version of the world's most popular roleplaying game.

19th Level - Balancing Classes in Swords & Wizardry - Game balance. It's a tricky concept in RPGs. D&D 3rd and 4th editions made a very strong effort to balance the character classes with one another as well as to balance encounters. For my purposes, they went too far...
