Swords & Wizardry Continual Light 2nd Print, Digest Edition aiming for September 2021

As I announced earlier today on The Tavern's Youtube Channel, we will hopefully be releasing Swords & Wizardry Continual Light as a digest-sized edition in September 2021. It is a format that folks have been asking for since SWCL first released, and I'm happy to say I've assembled the right team to do such a project justice.

This will be a new printing but not a new edition. The rules will not be changing BUT there will be additional material, a professional layout, and new art.

James Spahn will be writing a micro-setting and introductory adventure. Think somewhere along the lines of B2. I'm totally stoked.

James Shields will be providing new cover art and a new Swords & Wizardry Continual Light logo.

Jeff Jones will be doing the layout. Jeff laid out Torchlight Issue #0 and he will be the layout artist when Torchlight Issue #1 releases, probably later this month.

Michael Gross will be editing the SWCL Digest Edition. Mike has (or is) worked (or is working) with Frog God Games, Troll Lord Games, Throwi Games, and others I've probably forgotten. Mike edited Torchlight Issue #0 and will also be editing Torchlight Issue #1.

Hopefully, I'll be able to add more names to this list in short order :)

We may add a basic magical items section to the rules. B&W or color art for the interior is currently being discussed.

Let me know what you think, tell me your wants and desires, and let's make this the Swords & Wizardry Continual Light that YOU want. :)

  1. Reasonably priced with numbered pages and I'm in. People need a reason to chose this over Charlie Masons Whitebox which is a complete gaming system, digest sized and goes for $5 here in Canada compared to Continual Light, under 20 pages, NO page numbers and zero layout. I did still pick up 6 copies just to support but really glad to see some effort going into the new printing as it is a great gateway game.
