Guess What I was a Player in Today? Swords & Wizardry Light :)

Always a DM, rarely a player. Such is both my blessing and curse in life.

That's okay though, as I enjoy running game sessions a whole lot. Heck, I got to run one last night - Swords & Wizardry Light even. Today was different - today I was a player in a Swords & Wizardry Light game.

+Tim Shorts shorts invited me to join +matt jackson , +Jim Magnusson and some of Tim's Patreon backers in Tim's SWL Campaign. Needless to say it was a blast.

I played a human thief with a 17 Charisma. Interestingly enough, Matt also chose to run with a thief with, you guessed it, high charisma.

Tim has some really awesome houserules for clerics of different faith's in his campaign world - I'm going to push him to submit that to Torchlight, as they really do add depth to the campaign.

It was strange playing in the system I hacked together and watching someone else put it through its paces. SWL did as it was meant to do - kept itself in the background and let the play take precedence.

Damn, its going to be a few weeks before the next session and I'm already looking forward to it. Assuming I survive, I'll reach level two ;)


  1. It was a ton of fun. We had a good group. And you can have my clerics' hack whenever you need it.

  2. Sounds great. Also good to see these creative collectives working together, which means we will be seeing good stuff in the future.

  3. We had our session today too - our MU charmed a hobgoblin goblin boss and epic roll play was the result - love this game

  4. As I prefer to play a cleric in the rare instances I am a player, I am most interested in seeing Tim's cleric hack. The only other "make each deity's faithful unique" attempt was from the HackMaster game. Glad everyone had fun. Huzzah!

  5. You really have to love house rules that add depth to the 'faith' based part of the game.
