Enchanter Class for Labyrinth Lord and OSR Games – Review by Kurt R
This is the first product by Brett Slocum and his newly created Welsh Bard Games and is offered as PWYW with a suggested price of $1.00; with additional commentary by James Spahn and Ian Borchardt
The first 2 pages are the cover and OGL and pages 3 through 6 are the content. The illustrations are great and very classical. The Enchanter class is a Spirit talker of sorts and I can see it being useful in many types of games, it is well thought out and includes example play in the last page and a half.
The special Class ability is Sense and Command Spirits and this is well written and easy to understand. The reaction roll determines the Spirit's willingness to help the Enchanter by casting spells for them. The Experience table is the same progression as a LL Magic-User and I think an Enchanter would be about on par with a MU of the same level.
One thing that stands out is the optional rules for quickly determining the Spirits element and level, using a standard playing card deck or a Tarot deck. Each suit is one of the elements and the face cards help determine the level of the Spirit.
I rate this 5 stars and recommend it to you without reservations.
