Seeing as I am a strong supporter of Swords & Wizardry in both it's "official" and third party formats, I thought I would drop a post to highlight some of the awesome products on sale during the OSR Extravaganza Sale! There is some good stuff, and some at a far deeper discount than the standard 15% that the sale is offering! So, what are my S&W picks?
First of all, let me highlight a couple of larger deals happening.
+James Spahn of Barrel Rider Games has the vast majority of his catalog marked at 20% off or better. That means that you can have a plethora of White Box and White Star goodness at a deep discount! Did I mention he just release issue #1 of Star Sword Magazine, the official magazine of White Star? You can see everything James has to offer right here!
The OTHER Spahn, that is to say +Pete Spahn, also has a really great deal in the White Box family of games right now. It's a great deal, if you have yet to pick up WWII: Operation White Box. If your itching for some World War II or Weird War II action, this is where you want to be. In this bundle, you Get OWB in hardcover, premium color along with a copy in softcover for table use, the pdf and three modules to kick off your campaign! About $65 of product for only $44.99. You can grab this deal here.
Now let's take a look as some new classes for your S&W Game. These are pretty cool.
+Mark Chance, of Spes Magna Games, gives us The Magus, which I have been a fan of since it's release! It's a neat little class with some simple astrology rules to add into your campaign. It's well worth the look for only $0.84! You can nab it up right here.
+Timothy Brannan gives us his latest foray into the world of witchcraft. The Warlock ports over the class from 3.X - 5E into S&W with Tim's special brand of witchcraft. With notes on using the class with Tim's other Witches, there is a real value here. The real value here is for those who want this in physical form, which is currently about 33% off. If you're looking for new spells or want to bring the Tiefling into your S&W Complete campaign, this is the book for you.
Next up is a full campaign setting, complete with some alternate rules.
Sherwood: The Legend of Robin Hood is a fantastic supplement/campaign setting. I backed this when it was a Kickstarter. I can tell you, it is well researched from a historical perspective, and that alone makes it worth the price of the book. You get a campaign setting, new classes, and some new options for your fighters. The historical data helps for setting the scene, even if you don't intend to use the book as written. The book contains information on running both a historical OR high fantasy version of the Robin Hood myth. Complete with historically based classes. This is a Swords & Wizardry book worth having!
Onward to Adventure!
Pyramid of the Lost King is a low level campaign more than it is an adventure module! With a town, a plot and several dungeon/encounter regions, this could take months of regular play to get through. With professional looking layout and editing and terrific content, this is a steal at $8.50 for the pdf or $15.00 in softcover!
Ursined, Sealed and Delivered is a favorite of mine that I have both played and run. It's a great old school module that goes beyond just being a dungeon crawl. Published by the Frogs themselves and written by none other than veteran Dennis Sustare (creator of the OD&D Druid class!) and with a cover by Jennell Jaquays, this is an already an old school classic. In recent years it has become one of my all time favorite adventures along side the likes of Palace of the Vampire Queen and Dark Tower.
There you have it. Some of my top S&W picks from the massive sale that is soon to end! Remember, purchasing from my links helps Gamers & Grognards with a 5% commission from your sale.
