Welcome to the Grand Temple Of Oevrumines!
Oevrumines, the brutal Lord of Mazes, enjoys public worship in only one place in the known world, namely the accursed island kingdom of Kríti, whose corsairs prowl the seas, raiding coastal communities, attacking ships, and collecting tribute from vassals. The Grand Temple of Oevrumines sits ...

Petrine Umbra, a new Cleric spell for Swords & Wizardry, and the shadow killer, a mutant menace for Mutant Future. Huzzah.
In the Acts of the Apostles, we read that through God's grace even the “touch” of Peter's shadow could heal the sick. Since so many fantasy RPG spells clearly draw at least some inspiration from Jewish and Christian scriptures, why not one more? Petrine Umbra. Insomuch that they brought forth ...

Well, my grand writing plans last week got squashed under the heel of an awful head cold that has at last faded to a nuisance. Much of last week is a blur. I even missed OwlCon because I forgot which weekend was which. Yay....

I kicked off my 1E AD&D campaign a couple of weeks ago with BTW-style character creation. Worked pretty well. A few wrinkles still need to be ironed out, but overall it was a success. Here's the unkeyed village of Safe Harbor I drew based on the players' village map.

Back to work on a new character class: the Wise One. An excerpt:

Magical Affinity: A Wise One has a special affinity for a particular type of magic: arcane, divine, or druidic. This affinity is determined by a Wise One's highest mental ability scores. Intelligence corresponds to arcane magic, Wisdom to divine magic, and Charisma to druidic magic. If two or more of Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma are tied for highest score, the player may choose an appropriate magical affinity.

A Wise One can use gems and herbs to duplicate the effects of spells on the applicable spell list as if he were a member of the applicable class. In other words, Magic-User for Intelligence, Cleric for Wisdom, and Charisma for Druid.

Wise Ones, however, do not prepare and cast spells either via pray or by studying a spellbook. Instead, Wise Ones meditate upon the facets and interstices of gems as well as gather and mix herbs. In the process, Wise Ones tap into the innate powers and properties of gems and herbs to create magical effects.

I guess as the levels go up, the herbs, gems would increase in rarity, expense? I would not limit it to those types of things. That's a good start, but I'd expand your list to monster parts, and things that aren't quite so easy to quantify or qualify... like emotions, states of being, etc.
