Check it out, Erik Mona (Paizo Publishing) bought his copy of Swords & Wizardry long before the Kickstarter!
Jon Hershberger (President, Black Blade Publishing ) pictured above with Erik says, “Swords & Wizardry is a fun, fun game. It captures both the spirit and the substance of the original rules, from the days when the role-playing hobby was about the wonder and mystery of the unknown, and not about rules complexity and endless rules expansions, while presenting those rules in a way that is both better organized and more easily digested than the original. In far fewer pages than most ‘current edition’ role-playing games, Swords & Wizardry gives you all the rules needed to launch and enjoy an immersive fantasy role-playing campaign, much in the way the hobby’s founders did at the dawn of the hobby. And in so doing, the game casts off 30 years of “innovations” and “improvements”, giving the reader a purer, rawer, more robust game system with which to mold to ones liking. It’s great to see Swords & Wizardry gaining the kind of widespread acceptance that it has since its initial release four years ago. For my own gaming pursuits, Swords & Wizardry is one of only a couple game systems I ever consider running, whether that is for extended, campaign-based gaming or one-off games for convention play.”
