I've been asked on nearly a daily basis "When is the SwordsandWizardry.com
site coming back up?". The truth is, I don't know. When I have an update, you'll see it here first.
In the meantime, I've gotten permission to host the Swords & Wizardry White Box RTF File
and the Swords & Wizardry Core Doc file
. Just go to http://bit.ly/SWOpenSource
What does this mean for you?
If you like to house rule, you can go in, edit the files and print it at at home, at a professional printer or at Lulu.com. Yes, your own, customized, Swords & Wizardry ruleset
. (sorry, art assets and cover art are not included)
It also means if you have the desire to hack together a new ruleset, using Swords & Wizardry
as your inspiration, the tools are here. The S&W White Box
rules are what I hacked up to come up with Swords & Wizardry Light
I'll be looking to put together a page with other Swords & Wizardry
resources. I'll post it at The Tavern
when such is live. (If you have houseruled / hacked S&W ruleset you want to share with the community, this will be the place)
Long live Swords & Wizardry
Note - the PDF files and the POD are still hosted at Lulu
Thanks for doing this!ReplyDelete
FYI - All I'm seeing in that Dropbox folder is a .doc of White Box and a .pdf of White Box.
oops - let me fixReplyDelete
Now you've got the .rtf and .doc, but both of White BoxDelete
now fixed - sigh - best laid plans of mice and dwarves...Delete
I've been there... thanks again!Delete
What happened to the site?ReplyDelete
it's been off line for an extended period of time. I do not know when / if it is returningDelete
I did this exact thing with White Box. It was quite the learning experience.ReplyDelete
When you have the page up Erik, I'd be happy to include the PDF of White Box:FMAG
I just have to say; that Mullen cover for Core is probably my favorite cover of any OSR RPG!ReplyDelete
All of these files have been available at the new S&W forums for months at:ReplyDelete
"Yeah, just add a few house rules in..."ReplyDelete
That's how it starts. Then I ended up publishing The Hero's Journey Fantasy Roleplaying.
