While things have been pretty busy in my two PBEM games (Castles and Crusades Greyhawk as GM, and Call of Cthulhu as a player) - my next goal is to get a pen and paper game going of Swords and Wizardry.
I have a copy of the White box edition in print, so I think I am going to start with that and then tack on appropriate house rules. Here is the list I have so far:
Definitely implementing -
1. Death and Dismemberment Table
2. Aspects/Cliche's - this is going to coincide with a d6 method of task resolution. I'm going to expand a little on a combination of ideas from David Bowman's Delver's Article from Fight On #4, and Matyas Hartyandi's inclusion to the GitRDone article of Fight On #6, and ideas from FATE and Risus.
Strongly Considering -
1. Altered Races (saying goodbye to the Tolkien Themes)
2. Modified Movement and Encumbrance
I haven't decided on the game world yet - I know it will be a Sandbox style game where the players can add background if they wish.
