The past few years have been good ones for OSR and minimalist, rules-light gaming. No longer do you have to carry the game between your shoulder blades; now it will fit between your ears or in the side pocket of your lunch kit, and in the vanguard for fantasy and science fiction gaming have been James Spahn and Barrel Rider Games. They may have not reinvented the wheel that is Swords and Wizardry White Box, but they have put some nice rims and mounted some nifty chassis on it.
In Untold Adventures James has managed to go beyond minimalizing S&WWB and has successfully minimalized the content and maximized the spirit of 0e and 1e. I ought to know; I was playing a mixture of both back then and I can't see anything that we were not using or anything we were ignoring. As far as I'm concerned, the last word in 0e and 1e minimalist has been published, all that's needed now are modules to adventure in.
Now if only BRG will give superheroes the White Box treatment...
