Erik Tenkars Swords & Wizardry Light
I now have 3 different Campaigns on the run and am gaming 3 night per week, yes per week. I didn't even game three times per week when I was in high school, so why so much gaming I am sure you are asking.
Well its all because of Erik Tenkars Swords & Wizardry Continual Light. The absolute ease and simplicity of the game is wonderful and has had my creative juices flowing like crazy. Simply Sit-Role-Play.
The Campaigns I am currently running are The Conjunctions of Fates, Pathos, and Almost.
Each very different in feel and flavor from the others. Each set in completely different worlds and yet interconnected, with the actions and consequences in one Campaign having an effect on the others.
I have also been running 5e for a couple of years and have an on going long tern Campaign running but there is just something about S&W that gets my creative juices pumping. In fact my current 5e Home-brew Campaign started in Swords & Wizardry.
In an upcoming post I will share some of the play-tested classes I have created for play for those of you that have asked.
I am also proud to say that SWCL has also allowed me to introduce Table top RPG's to a wide range of people some of whom are now Dm'ing their own groups.
Nothing makes me happier than seeing someone I have introduced to gaming come into their own and start running their own games, its a great feeling.
Having a wife and kids has required me to change the way I run my games. I have always preferred to game around the table but I now find myself taking to the internet once the kids are in bed for most of my gaming. It has also allowed me to grow my skills as a storyteller since we run mainly theater of the mind with perhaps a map or picture of the location on display via roll20.
I still get to sit at an actual table once per week and look forward to it immensely each week.
So I wish to extend a great thank you to Erik Tenkar for this gem and for his website Tenkars Tavern.
