Over 300 Downloads of Swords & Wizardry Light in just over 24 Hours!

Thank you. Thank you all.

Over 300 downloads of Swords & Wizardry Light. Wow. Simply wow.

We've been getting some great feedback as well as identifying typos that need fixing (and some things that could use a slightly more detailed explanation)

I've been asked about a Swords & Wizardry Light Compatibility License. At the moment, there is none, but considering that the printed version of SWL does triple work (folder, GM Screen and rules) one-sheets are the ideal format. Just print out, drop inside the rules and you are ready to go.

Remember, magic items are not detailed in the SWL rules, so if your adventure includes magic items you'll need to include the relevant details.

The OGL must be included with any one-sheet releases, but that can always be on the third page. It would just take up needless space in the folder anyway ;)

+James Spahn , +Zach Glazar and myself have plans for Swords & Wizardry Light. It is very much a living system. In the next week or so there should be a "lighter" PDF version as well as a Word Doc file. We will be publishing one-sheets and a bimonthly zine.

As for why the Swords & Wizardry Light forum makes The Tavern's homepage scroll right to it? No idea. But in a day or two it will move to the second page and take care of itself :)


  1. My suggestion is to have low/no art version. I couldn't print it, as is, and it would be impossible to read, if I could. A layer that you could switch off or on would work as well. Something I wish a lot of publishers would do.

    Also, versions that are 8.5 x 11, as well.

    In any case, thanks, and rock on.

  2. Wow, nice work! I would second the low art suggestion for printing though.

    1. There will be a layered PDF released shortly, which will allow one to drop the art when printing
