New System Thursday, 1/21/2010

It’s that time of the week again, Adventurers! It’s Thursday and that means that we’re adding a new system to our list of over 100 supported table-top RPG game systems and settings. We slacked a bit last week due to the character changes we put in place, so this week we’re adding two! And here they are in no particular order:

Changeling: The Lost
From the twisted minds of White Wolf Publishing, the creators of hit games Exalted, Werewolf: The Forsaken, and the cult classic Vampire: THe Masquerade comes Changeling: The Lost.

The protagonists of this modern fairy tale are the changelings, or as they often call themselves, the Lost. Stolen away from their human lives as children or adults, they spent what seemed like years or even centuries in Faerie, chattel to beautiful but inhuman lords and ladies. Fed on faerie food and drink, they gradually became more fae themselves, their bodies shifting slightly to reflect their roles. Some, however, managed to escape. Holding on to their memories of home, they found their way through the winding thorns of the Hedge, the barrier between the mortal world and time-twisted Faerie.

Will you face the dangers of the Hedge and try to return to the mortal world? Or will you give yourself to the strange powers of Faerie in a bid for power? Make a Changeling: The Lost campaign right now!

Swords & Wizardry
In a throwback to oldschool gaming, Mythmere Games presents Swords & Wizardry.

The Swords & Wizardry project builds and supports free-form roleplaying games. That is to say, games where “light” rules create a framework instead of trying to cover every detail, every rule, and every situation. The Swords & Wizardry game “clones” the original rules of the fantasy roleplaying game that started it all back in 1974, when it was published by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson. We also support two games we didn’t write: OSRIC and Goblinoid Games’ Labyrinth Lord. OSRIC is a clone of the game’s 1978 “First Edition,” and Labyrinth Lord is a clone of the game’s 1981 “Basic” Edition. All these game rules are rewritten and reorganized to be easier to learn and play.

We featured the Swords & Wizardry Quick Start book by Ye Olde Games in last week’s Free System Friday. Be sure to grab a copy of it, and then you can make a Swords & Wizardry campaign right now!

Award Winning!
