I've wondered for a while why game books aren't spiral bound – they would lay flat.

Lamination and tabs would just be awesome too.

I'm curious if anyone knows the story behind the illustration on the cover of the Player's Companion. It looks like it might be a Paladin receiving his commission, but I can't be sure and even if it is there's got to be some interesting reason why the cloaked figure is receiving (or giving?) a sword from a boy.

So I put this together today to see if I could strip character creation in my (heavily home-brewed) Swords & Wizardry game down to something that could be done in 5 minutes and still produce a fully playable character. I think it might be useful as a template for anyone else thinking about doing the same thing.

Comments on both the Quick Character Generation document and the character sheet (linked to in the document) are enabled. I'd really appreciate any feedback you have.

Question: How were treasure types assigned to monsters? I'm specifically curious about cut-off points between tiers inside the same broad treasure category (hoarder, raider, incidental). For example, what distinguishes monsters with treasure type B, D or H from each other? My guess is that it's Hit Dice, but I'm curious as to what exactly the cut-off points were so I can figure out treasure types to assign to S&W monsters I want to use.
