I've Gotten a Peek at the Far Away Land / Swords & Wizardry Mashup Playtest Rules and I'm Psyched!

Dirk Stanley sent me the latest version of the playtest rules where he converts his Far Away Lands setting from his own rule system (which is awesome in its own right) to a modified Swords & Wizardry engine, drawing some inspiration from Swords & Wizardry Continual Light.

I can not state enough how much I want to run this. Like right now! heh.

I was thinking of giving World Anvil a shot at managing my next campaign, and I was going to use The Black Isle as the setting using SWCL as the ruleset, but Dirk has severely tempted me.

As Dirk gets closer to release, I'll snag him for an interview on The Tavern Chat Podcast.

You can grab the Far Away Land Quickstart rules as PWYW to get a feel for the setting and the art here:  https://www.rpgnow.com/product/149427/Far-Away-Land-RPG-Quick-Start-Rules?affiliate_id=1446
