Swords & Wizardry Continual Light

Do you consider Excalibur a decent back-up weapon?

Is what you call "Improved Continual Light" what other people call "Sunrise"?

Do the gods ask YOU what's going to happen today?

Do you consider your dad multi-classed because he works two jobs to keep you in rulebooks and supplements?

Then scat. Shoo. Go away kid, you bother me. Ain't nothing to see here.

But if you remember the days when most of the game rules and stats could fit in your head, next to your imagination and sense of humor, you've come to the right place. Pull up a chair. break out your best 3d6 and d20 (that's all you'll need), open up your snack locker, grab a pencil and a character sheet (it has plenty of room to customize it yourself), and allons bebe, laissez les bon temps rouler!

Damn, the beastiary has no listing for vampire; that sucks. Oh, well...

Swords & Wizardry Continual Light

Excellent rules-light rpg since I no longer have the time to read 300+ pages of core rules... But why does the dwarf and the thief have some little differences between SWL and SWCL?

The dwarf no longer have the defensive bonus vs. giants (+4 AC) in SWCL... In SWL, the thief have 1/D6 move silently, etc. and in SWCL he have 1-2/D6?

And I would add dark vision (60') to dwarves and elves or at least night vision to elves...

Besides that, THANK YOU very much for this practical little treasure rpg.

I was pleasantly surprised looking through this slim tome. Can we call it a tome even? S&W is a great system to build other systems off of, but I had doubts about needing another "lite" rule set. It has the standard stuff you'd expect to find like the basic classes and races, but the way it implents them is creative. Especially the "subclasses". So simple but with variety. I don't know if I'd play a long term campaign with this set, but I want to give it a try. I'll certain think of using it in my next pick up game, where I think it'll really shine. A neat experience system that, while not new, gives it a unique feeling. A small spell selection but gives you everything you may need, and expanding it would be a cinch. Same with the moster listing: not all of our favorites, but enought to go on for quite a while. Looking forward to the pod version.

Swords & Wizardry Complete from Frog God Games is a clone of the entire original D&D (OD&D) rules from 1974-1977. S&W Light is rules light 5 page version of the same and S&W Continual Light is a 16 version of the same. This is a superb rules light game for introducing BOTH new and young players to the world of fantasy RPGs. Highly recommended. My only critque is the very plain character sheet at the end of the booklet. Lots of unused space in that sheet that could be filled with more lines and/or art. This is a nicely edited and cleanly laid out version of S&W Light which should provide you and your party years of new memories and spark some old ones. Easily compatible and expandable with other pre 1E AD&D editions. Well done!

The character sheet is very vanilla. I'd be happy to throw some coin at someone that offers better - hint hint!

Ever had a non-gamer friend express an interest only to watch their face fall when you passed them a "slim" 64 page rulebook?

Swords & Wizardry Continual Light is an ideal entry level Old-School RPG, suited to lapsed gamers who haven't played in decades, or even those who have never played before. Expanding on Swords & Wizardry Light, Continual Light allows play to 7th level and beyond, and provides ample support with rules for conversion of material published for Swords & Wizardry Complete. A must have for those who value simplicity and convience in their RPGs.
