Re: S&W Light - Why?

In a nutshell, Light/Continual Light is about marketing for Frog God Games and using Tenkar's Tavern blog to do it. Erik is more than happy to associate his name with a new version of S&W and actively promote it on his website. Plus, Erik has been promoting directly at Gary Con and will do so at the...

Re: S&W Continual Light - what's not to like ?

Hard to say until it is released. I going to guess it is going to be the 16 pages of rules. I am not particularly impressed with the "perks" system. There were choices in Light that could have better; a repeat of the same ones from WB 1st printing upon which Light was based. Anything else of support...

Re: White Box Rules Update/Re-design

Mythmere is little more than an alias for Matt; a placeholder for his trademarks. With Complete in the forefront, Core and WhieBox are shuffled into the shadows. Erik got dazzled by the fancy layout which makes sense since this product is being given away with Frog God orders and at conventions. Thi...

Re: White Box Rules Update/Re-design

For those you wonder the point of Light, it is simply marketing for Frog God and ego-trip for Erik. The best possible outcome is the rules-lite adventure support while the rules are more of the same with Erik's house-rules thrown in. Since, he has a blog that is followed then this presentation is so...

Re: S&W White Box History?

It is interesting that WB and Core were very close though the 3rd printing of Core. The 4th printing of Core was essentially a subset of the 1st printing of Complete. In retrospect, I find these first Core printings to be mediocre while the WB printing has become the foundation for something better....

Re: White Box: FMAG Errata and Updates

Okay, I'm curious. What touch ups will you do in Adobe? A personal print? Do you do your own covers? Is there anything I can do with the update to help out? It really comes down to a clean layout which White Box is. Also, I need to find an open source freeware version of all the fonts used in the d...

Re: White Box: FMAG Errata and Updates

Ok, you are right. I am imagining it worse than it was for my own reasons. I got a little carried away. I am looking forward to your revision to get it closer to the version I would like. Adobe Acrobat touch-up and a personal Lulu printing will take the rest of the way. I guess all I can say is I am...

Re: White Box: FMAG Errata and Updat

White Box is also not Product Identity as listed in S&W: White Box OGL legal page. Further, common law trademarks are usually enforceable only within the geographic region or locale where the trademark owner is using it in business. it just feels like you are being bullied without legal justificatio...

Re: White Box: FMAG Errata and Updates

White Box is trademarked. I was told to put it on the covers. The only other option is to change the name. White Box is not trademarked. I can find no record in TESS (Trademark Electronic Search System) living or dead. I looked at all entries and found no living trademark registered to either Matt ...
