More Light Please! Current Plans for the Swords & Wizardry Light Ruleset and Support

If all goes well, I should have an advance copy of Swords & Wizardry Light in my grubby hands in a couple of weeks IF the Gods look upon me favorably. I expect the PDF will release around the same time. The plan is to get some advance copies into the hands of those that have expressed an interest in writing for SWL as soon as possible. Patience most certainly is not one of my virtues and Fate often has its own plans that rarely intersect with my own.

The Unholy Triumvirate has put into place Triumvirate Tavern Publishing to support Swords & Wizardry Light. The current plans are to publish a zine every 2 to 3 months (working that detail out) under the title Continual Light. The zine is expect to be 16 to 24 pages in length (most likely digest sized) and the majority of its material should be compatible with all flavors of Swords & Wizardry. New classes, spells, settings, encounters, adventures, magic items and the like. In the months there is no zine published, one or more one-sheets can be expected to be released under the TorchLight name. There will also be some other releases from TTP that aren't related to the zine or one-sheets.

Additionally there will be support and content here at The Tavern. We'll provide guidance on how to progress from SWL to Swords & Wizardry Complete (or Core or White Box) as well as how to integrate current SWC adventures into your SWL campaign. Oh, and other goodies, of course.

We are looking into a Swords & Wizardry Light compatibility logo. More on that later.

The goal is to have the initial support up and running in time for the release of Light.

I still can't thank Bill, Matt and the rest of the Frogs enough for allowing me to play with their toys. Its an honor.

Gee, looks like I'll have that time sink I need now that I'm retired ;)


  1. So, does the above plan replace the Extra Light expansion?

  2. nope - extra light is still in effect ;)

  3. Very cool, Erik. Perhaps I can write for the Continual Light zine. I think that would be fun.
