I'm Burning, I'm Burning, I'm Burning (SWL) for You!

Ah, you gotta love it when people make burnt offerings to you ;)

So, what brought this latest sacrifice?

As is, apparently, Matt Finch's Swords & Wizardry Core rules. Does that mean Matt is on the outs at FGG? But wait, 2nd print of Complete is available. I'm confused. But hey, the adventure Stacey actually wrote is still up.

I expect there is some spring cleaning / consolidation going on at the FGG web store. But hey, thanks for the burnt offering. I'll cherish it forever...


  1. When have facts ever gotten in the way of a good stunt?

  2. 3rd printing all gone? Nothing of value is lost.

  3. Reminds me of when Daniel Fox bought my Dark Albion & Cults of Chaos & then tore them up to show off how fake-woke he is.

  4. The Tavern : come for the book-burning, stay for the music!

  5. Hilarious. She impaled it on a stake too, for extra woke points.

  6. “Colored people don't like Little Black Sambo. Burn it. White people don't feel good about Uncle Tom's Cabin. Burn it. Someone's written a book on tobacco and cancer of the lungs? The cigarette people are weeping? Burn the book. Serenity, Montag. Peace, Montag. Take your fight outside. Better yet, into the incinerator. Funerals are unhappy and pagan? Eliminate them, too. Five minutes after a person is dead he's on his way to the Big Flue, the Incinerators serviced by helicopters all over the country. Ten minutes after death a man's a speck of black dust. Let's not quibble over individuals with memorials. Forget them. Burn all, burn everything. Fire is bright and fire is clean.” ― Ray Bradbury

  7. I'll never understand why people don't just ask:

    "It is no longer available, we are out of all physical copies; the only rulebook we still have copies of is the Complete rules with the Erol Otus cover. All versions of the S&W rules (Core, white box, etc) are being removed from the store in the next few months as we streamline, soon only Complete and Light will be left for purchase/download. Our customers have told us that the various printings and editions are confusing and we are going to do some major consolidation in the next year.
