The Swords & Wizardry Complete Rules are now free to download in PDF form. I have been hearing roomers about this possibly happening for a month or so now and its really exciting to see that it actually has happened. Now more people can play the tabletop RPG that I have been enjoying for a few years now.
I got into Swords & Wizardry, after spending years playing tabletop RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition and Pathfinder. I was never happy with those games and every now and then when my gaming group would come over we would do a one shot of some random RPG I had collected in hopes of finding something better than the two previously mentioned games. Eventually, we stumbled onto Swords & Wizardry, and from the moment I drew up my first Character, I knew this a great game.
Swords & Wizardry is based upon one of the first versions of Dungeons & Dragons. Using the old game as a starting point, Swords & Wizardry takes the rules and simplify them, making them easier to read. If you have ever wanted to try Dungeons & Dragons, or any RPG for that matter, I really think that Swords & Wizardry is one of the better starting points for new people and a game that veteran players will enjoy.
