    Swords and Wizardry ruleset and modules?

    I was researching old school D&D gaming and I am a big fan of The Lost Lands: Stoneheart Valley / "The Wizard's Amulet", "The Crucible of Freya" modules. So I went to Frog God games website and found this module and Barakus and many others from Necromancer Games comes in two rules sets. Pathfinder and Swords and Wizardry. It seems that Swords and Wizardry is D&D 0e edition. Which is a very easy drop in for even running this rule set in 1st and 2nd edition D&D modules.


    Is there a Swords and Wizardry ruleset or plans to make one? I would love to run these modules as a campaign. I am not a D&D 3.5 or Pathfinder fan.

    Celestianfrom the forums here has been looking at doing an official ruleset. I am not sure where the discussions with Frog God Games and/or SmiteWorks are. He will no doubt see this and chime in.

    Unfortunately Frog God Games's busy schedule kept us from aligning to get this project moving. (We had started talking January of this year). I've had to withdraw my S&W ruleset proposal due to my own workload schedules at this time.

    I'd be happy to offer help as I can. I'd even suggest using the AD&D Core ruleset as a base. It's pretty close to what is needed (and one reason I was looking at doing this project). It's no small task and needs to be created by someone with a love for the system.

    Dont do it by PM.
    Do it in the forums or at the least in Discord channels so that others can have access to and learn from the interaction.
