Most people who know my game preferences know that I’m a B/X D&D man and thus my retroclone of choice is Labyrinth Lord as it holds closest to that rules set and includes the least house rules…
But last year there was a Kickstarter for a new edition of Swords & Wizardry from Frog God Games – with an amazing set of people working on the revision headed up by ConTessa’s Stacy Dellorfano.
Already owning one edition of S&W Complete, and with it not being my preferred Old School rules set, I was kind of on the fence about it.
Then the shit started within the OSR “community”. I saw the kickstarter get called out for a whole pile of bullshit to the extreme of it somehow being some sort of slap in the face of the OSR and/or old school gamers.
So I backed it.
And it is lovely.
