JOETHELAWYER'S WONDROUS IMAGININGS - For S&W Day: Anouncing a New G+ Hangout S&W Campaign! - So, last Saturday night playing in +Erik Tenkar 's game I was three sheets to the wind and asked him what this S&W day thing was all about.  He told me, and I promptly forgot all about volunteering to do something.  Until today when I saw 3000 posts.  Shit.

Lapsus Calumni -[contest] S&W: Appreciation Day adventure, part IV! -Continuing my S&W:Whitebox adventure...

Ilea jacta Est -- A 20-Sided Look at Life - Birhaakamen Fire Brew: An S&W Liquor - This reddish-amber liquor smokes when poured into a glass, usually a short tumbler. The wisps of smoke are thin and noticeable only if looked for...

Hereticwerks - The Not-So-Empty Crypt of Baljessor (Swords & Wizardry) - This is another low-level Mini-Adventure ideal for use as a one-shot or the seed of something bigger. It is geared for 1-4 player characters of from 1st to 3rd level, but you can certainly ramp it up for more powerful groups...

Starting Over With The OSR - Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day - Part I - The Wastelands of Zin - So, what do you need to start your new Swords & Wizardry campaign? How about a world?

Semper Initiativus Unum -S&W Bonus #4: Vespertilians (Bat-Men of the Moon) -I had talked back in February about the Great Moon Hoax of 1835. Well, there was an adaptation of the bat-men of the moon that I've got written up, which will be published when I finally actually put out the adventure...

Quickly, Quietly, Carefully -Magic Swords for Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day -For Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day, I made this short booklet with a system to generate unique magcial swords...

The OSR Library -S&W Appreciation Day:The Giant Warrior-King Zombie -One more 'small' thing before I'm off to sleep. It will be expanded upon later.

The Campaign Expanse -S&W Appreciation Day: At the Confluence of the New and the Old -I’m not an old school gamer by any means, despite starting at the end of AD&D 2nd Edition (and there are many who argue 2E was not nearly old school enough)...

New Grog on the Block -Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day Post #2: Why play Swords & Wizardry? -You want rules-light?  Boom.  You got it.  Want just the fighting-man, magic-user, and cleric?  You got it.

Wampus Country - Swords and Wizardry of Wampus Country -Seeing that it's Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day, let's talk about swords.  And wizardry.  Rather than spend a bunch of time going over what I like about S&W (short version: it's free and everybody puts out stuff for it which I can use in my LL game), today's post is going to be a big ol' mess of stuff along those two themes.

Pilgrims Guide Zeitgeist -Wreck of the Golden Koi a mini adventure to put a little Ruins & Ronin in your S&W -If you read the last post on ruins & ronin and thought you might give it a try, heres a little something i thought up that might help you put a little of it in your western fantasy setting


  1. Holy crap! How am I ever going to be able to read all of the blog posts about S&W?!

    1. No joke! I hope it's at least a month before they spring Mutant Future Appreciation Day :P
