White Box: Expanded Lore
by Christopher N. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/03/2017 15:39:05

This is a fantastic little toolkit for your White Box campaigns. The layout is clear with some nice black & white line-art character illustrations. The classes presented are well-balanced and round out the base lineup from White Box: FMAG. My only complaint is there is no Ranger, but that is easily dealt with. The Druid spells are concise, though GMs will have to make some rulings regarding whether or not a saving throw is allowed. (I'm looking at you, Sunburst). The expanded rules section contains all manner of optional rules, such as increased attribute modifiers, extra races, additional class abilities, and a very brief feat system. Some White Box GMs will probably have a massive coronary over some of this stuff, but it's entirely optional and frankly pretty well done. If you like Swords & Wizardry White Box, and especially Charlie Mason's White Box: Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game, this is a great resource.

White Box: Expanded Lore
by Charlie M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/28/2016 17:59:09

Disclosure: I'm the guy that made the updated White Box: Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game. I had no involvement with this book.

This is a fantastic supplement for White Box games. The New classes are flavorful and have easy mechanics, which is ideal for WB (keep it short and sweet). There is a new spell list for the Druid, instead of just using the cleric spells.

Check this new spell description:

Wild Strength This  spell gives  a  chosen  person  immense  strength  –  his  muscle  mass  rips  apart clothes

Just awesome. Every game needs a Hulk.

The feats may turn some people off, just by the name alone. But they are short and sweet (see the pattern?) and it adds a way to add more mechanical differentiation among classes. Some people will like that. And hey, you can always change the name!

The layout is clean and the art is really good. There are a few typos and grammar errors but I don't believe it's the authors native language.

All in all, I think it's a great little product for White Box games, especially at the PWYW price.
