Swords & Wizardry Core Rules


The new fourth printing (May 2011)! Swords & Wizardry is the ENnie-Award winning "retro-clone" of the original fantasy roleplaying game created by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson. The Core Rules also contain some selected material from the supplements (1974-1978). With a thriving internet community and tons of support products, Swords & Wizardry is bringing back a lost style of fantasy roleplaying. Forget huge rulebooks - this book and imagination (and dice) are all you need! If you can imagine it, you can do it in Swords & Wizardry. The rules are simple and quick to learn, and they are infinitely flexible and expandable. Take the basic framework and "Imagine the hell out of it!"
