Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day

Swords and Wizardry was my doorway into the OSR and the catalyst to finding a version of DnD that served my game design aesthetics and was streamlined to play.  It took what I wanted out of ADnD 2e and what I felt was lacking from DnD 3.x and DnD 4e.  Then it tread what was new ground for me, but old hat for so many others.

It was that healing potion that gets you back into the fight, so you can score a critical hit.

It was how I first learned to stop worrying and love DnD.  Even if it was my own DnD.

I'm sad to admit that I've moved away from SnW these days, but it still holds a special place in my heart.

I can truly say that If I hadn't stumbled upon it, this blog would probably not exist.

So raise a glass to SnW!
