For Those Waiting on Swords & Wizardry Continual Light and Torchlight, My Best Guesses for Release

NTRPG Con is the "Con of Cons" for OSR gamers, and although I talked with a huge amount of people over many topics, one thing came up repeatedly:

Swords & Wizardry Light

I believe both Frog God Games and the Bad Mike ran out of the 4 page rules folders. I do know that the Swords & Wizardry Legion Folders were gone by sometime on Saturday. They were popular. Heck, so popular that I talked with none other than Dr. Dennis Sustare (Bunnies & Burrows / Swordbearer until 4 am Friday Night / Saturday Morning about none other than - Swords & Wizardry Light and Continual Light.

So, what about Swords & Wizardry Continual Light, the 16 to 20 page ruleset that the Frogs are going to offer free in both PDF and Print, written by one other than Three Castles Award 2017 and Origins 2017 Nominee +James Spahn (with some input by me, but the words are all James and the results are amazing)

SWCL is right behind The Blight in Frog God Games projects being worked on, and The Blight is all hands on deck. I'm going to put the following dates out for SWCL (not written in stone - these are my best guesses and I lack true insider knowledge)- summer for the PDF and fall for the free print release.

Is that significantly later than my initial hope - April 15th? Sure, but the final result is going to be so much better and how do you beat free print copies?

Where does that put Torchlight, the magazine to support all flavors of Swords & Wizardry? About 30 to 45 days behind the release of the PDF. Work on it has slowed as putting the cart before the horse rarely works. I am proud of what has been submitted thus far. It really is an amazing community.

In the meantime, I get to practice InDesign and get some more PWYW releases into the wild :)

  1. If I write a class or two for SWL/SWCL, is that too much overlap when contrasted to what James Spahn is writing?
