Did you or your kid get more fun out of the empty boxes than the gifts that came inside?

Are you consdered multi-classed because you work two jobs to keep up with the 100-lb sea anchor that is most rpg systems?

Take comfort beleaguered ones, the cavalry has arrived.

Swords and Wizardry Lightl is everything you need for a complete fantasy rpg experience for levels 1-3. Everything, everything, EVERYTHING is on two two-sided notebook sized pages: the four iconic classes with starting kits and spells, weapons, treasure, appropriate foes, and combat rules. Everything works on the roll of a d6 or a d20, so no more sounding like a junk wagon toting all those dice to the table.

Giving SWL as a gift and you don't want to seem cheap? Get the Character cards (beautiful artwork with a player's guide on one side and a character sheet on the other) and the Tome of Horrors Light Volume 1 for whatever you paid for SWL. Want more on-the-fly fantasy goodness? SW Continual Light, going all the way to Level 7, should be out at any time. Want to see the Light shined on other genres? Light City, for Supers, is currently in development and I imagine someone somewhere is working to shine the Light so we can seek out new life and new civilizations in a galaxy far, far away.

After delving through the dungeons of OSR I haven't yet found a treasure hoard more valuable than Swords & Wizardry Light. There are so many riches and gems inside these two pages (four pages when printed and bound together). The simplicity of this system is perfect. There is just enough information for a solid foundation with plenty of room to make it your own.

With this system you get all the information you need to take the four key classes from level one to level three. The four classes are The Fighter, The Cleric, The Magic-User and The Thief. Included are eighteen monsters from the minor foes such as goblins to the mighty foes such as wyverns. A nice mixture of humanoids, undead and monstrous creatures. The combat rules include both ascending armor class and descending armor class.

This system is perfect for both one-shots and long-term campaigns. The rules are simple enough for anyone to pick up and run a game (including my 11-year-old daughter). And it is free so what are you waiting for!?
