ATTENTION

A couple of new rules for the community. This is a discussion community foremost, and an advertising community secondly. So...

1. One advertising post per product.
2. No posts about Kickstarters unless they are specifically for something that is for Swords & Wizardry, i.e. a Swords & Wizardry "book" is the primary funding goal. Multiple types of system support is okay, as long as funding gets a Swords & Wizardry book. Also: One post per Kickstarter. Period. If you want to talk about your Kickstarter, time it appropriately.
3. This community does not condone sexist, racist, homophobic or transphobic discussion. Any of these will get you banned from the community and reported to Google. Anyone who makes the effort to post here is a real gamer, and we will not discriminate against anyone.

There's plenty of places around the internet for advertising RPG stuff, this is for Swords & Wizardry discussion. I'm always happy to give leeway in to other systems (including the one that inspired S&W) but I would like to keep this community focused. There's no shortage of places for general OSR discussion, either.

Thank you in advance, and any questions can be directed towards me via private message.

Half page character sheet?

Anyone got a White Box half page character sheet they might be able to share or point me to?

I'm introducing my nephews to S&W this weekend and want to get some compact sheets printed out ahead of time.

Thanks in advance.

What are your thoughts on pregen characters in published adventures? I've never used them before, so it didn't even occur to me to add them in Shrine of Sruukor. I'm working on a follow up adventure so I've been thinking about what I can do better this time.

I had to leave the Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day podcast before it ended because it started late and ended late, so I missed the Flash Gordon trivia question. I knew the answer! Oh, well. I couldn't have submitted an answer anyway because my screen didn't have the Q&A button. I must have been running it through the wrong app.

At any rate, the guests were asked what first kindled their interest in Swords & Wizardry. My own answer would be two things: Backswords & Bucklers, which is available on Lulu (I have the free PDF of the main rules and I bought the PDF of the companion rule book) and a blog entry that doesn't even mention S&W or any specific edition of D&D, but it perfectly captured the spirit of S&W and reminded me of Backswords & Bucklers, which, of course, is built on a Swords & Wizardry framework. This is that blog entry:

I wish she would resume blogging.

So here's my question: I've decided to take the S&W:WB document, take out the stuff I don't like, and add in my house rules.  Would there be enough interest in yet another house-ruled WB variant to justify posting the completed PDF for others to read?

My wife is making a S&W Complete character and it's become really obvious how much neither of us like the character sheet from the book. Does anyone have a favorite sheet to share?
