Test Covers for the Swords & Wizardry Continual Light Beta - and more SWL News

Ignore the waviness - the are laying on a pillow (damn cat wouldn't give me desk space ;)

Anyhow, the Swords & Wizardry Continual Light (SWCL) Beta is going to come in at 20 digest sized pages, with even the inside covers printed on.

We have a choice of white or blue for the covers. I'm partial to the blue but let me know what you think.

Now, the full release (planned for the Spring of '17) will also include seven adventures (one for each character level in the rules) as well as a sandbox setting. Pricing to be determined.

There will be 30 signed and numbered copies (and a handful of unsigned and unnumbered copies). I'll be bringing about a dozen signed and numbered copies to Gary Con at the end of the month as well as mailing some to the higher level Patreon Backers. Gary Con copies will be handed out free (first 8 are reserved and not counted towards the dozen we will be handing out.) There will be other Swords & Wizardry Light loot at Gary Con too, so look for +Zach Glazar , +Michael Badolato and myself for SWL goodness.

I've also released a handful of SWCL PDF copies into the hands of playtesters. They are free to print out copies for their own use and that of their groups.


  1. I prefer the white. The blue detracts from the line art.

  2. I like the blue for 2 reasons:
    -Reminds my of my first copy of D&D. (I am old)
    -It stands out on the bookshelf/table better.

    Either way, it is an instant purchase. Looking forward to it.

    1. How about a goldenrod cover - to tie in with the Light idea ?

  3. It's better in white, and Rach is right. ;)
