Swords and Wizardry White Box X-mas Sale

Another lazy post...
I thought that I would mention that Brave Halfling Games is having a sale on box sets of the third printing of the 'White Box' version of the Swords & Wizardry RPG (the 'retro-clone' of '0e D&D').

Here is the blurb from the BHP site:

THIRD PRINT EDITION – November 25, 2010.

Fewer Rules, More Imagination!

Prepare to be introduced to the old style of free form gaming! Swords & Wizardry: WhiteBox is inspired by the original 1974 fantasy role-playing game created by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson. These rules are flexible and open to interpretation – designed not to cover all conceivable situations, but to allow good Referees and Players the freedom to create and play games of their own design.

This Boxed Set Contains everything you need to play:

  • 6″ x 9″ Game Box (This is an actual game box manufactured for just this purpose)
  • Four Rule Booklets (Characters, Spells, Monsters, & Treasures)
  • A digest-sized copy of Matt Finch’s, “Quick Primer for Old-School Gaming”
  • Ten digest-sized Character Sheets
  • Set of Polyhedral Dice
  • Pencil

The First 50 orders will also receive two complementary modules – “The Vile Worm of the Eldritch Oak” & “The Ruins of Ramat!”

I already own a copy of this box set, but I'm tempted to get a second one, given the low price and the fact that the third printing fixes a number of minor typos and mistakes in the earlier printings (I'm somewhat uptight about such things).

  1. Dang, the third print has fewer rules, more imagination? I knew there was a downside to being an early adopter!
