Lost Blogs

As far as I can tell, I've already found a couple of Swords & Wizardry blogs that aren't on Erik's list, and they're pretty major contributions since one post contains an entire variant system for use with bad guys, and the other is an article-length analysis of class balance.

To get the first draft of a free, goblinoid-based variant of Swords & Wizardry, click over to Rob Griffin's blog Blood & Battle, and check it out: Using these variant rules for Swords & Wizardry, you can create characters who are orcs, bugbears, goblins, gnolls, and half-orcs. Classes available are Barbarian, Shaman, Witch Doctor, Sneak, and Warrior.

For an in-depth analysis of class balance (2200 words!) in S&W by Daniel Stack, check out 19th Level.

I found Rob's and Daniel's posts via the Swords & Wizardry Google+ community, which is -- not unexpectedly -- abuzz with activity today. The Swords & Wizardry Google+ Community is Here.

Many more posts to come, I suspect!


  1. Here's another lost post. I wasn't going to join but then I had this wicked little idea last night ...

  2. I've got an adventure posted. It rolled over at 12 am and I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere yet.
