Hmmm. This looks interesting. Let's read the pitch for Boons for Swords & Wizardry Core Rules:
This is a D60 table I created for my home game of core S&W but it will work with any OSR style game. The idea was to expand on the class system using a random table. Players roll on the table at 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th, and 13th levels. I found I wanted to jazz up the core rules a little without overcomplicating things and this table did just the trick. It adds depth to characters without the need for more complicated classes. This is exactly what I wanted. I love the simplicity and ease of play S&W offers but missed some of the elements in more complicated games. This table gave me the best of both worlds. Some of the boons can be stacked (GM’s option) if a player finds they have rolled the same boon twice.Alright, I'm curious. Its PWYW, so you can peek for free.

Holy shit. I LIKE this. Even if only used at first level, this is pretty damn cool. It's not overpowering and adds flavor and uniqueness to PCs. I just went back and gave a buck.
Note, although it specifically calls out the S&W Core Rules, it should work fine with any flavor of S&W. Heck, pretty much any OSR ruleset too.

I'm curious how it compares to the d20 Lamentations of the Flame Princess fan-made advancement rules (on p2 left column) https://www.google.com/amp/s/rollsanity.com/lamentations-flame-princess-character-sheet/%3fampReplyDelete
