Re: What Should Come Next for White Box?

I strongly recommend looking at the text of a game like Pits & Perils if you want to see short and simple descriptions of this or that bursting at the seams with flavor. :!: :idea: Okay, these folks don't have a free version of the rules :( What book has flavor text you are referencing? I would lik...

Re: White Box Rules Update/Re-design

Whitebox has always been the odd one out as it harked back to OD&D and promoted homebrew material and houserules - by disdaining WB and Core, S&W focusses on being it's own thing, rather than encouraging people to seek out the Oe itself, or write for Oe (the original reason for a clone). I stopped ...

Re: What Should Come Next for White Box?

As well as further echoing the sentiments recently expressed, I'll go ahead and be brutally honest (with myself) that I'd LOVE a WB:FMAG 'monster book'. Further, I'd rather an 'odd' monster book. More Fiend Folio and far less Monster Manual. Ya dig? Heck, to be quite frank I'd love to see the whole ...

Good point. Into The Unknown (or something in that vein) it is.

Re: What Should Come Next for White Box?

I coulda sworn someone commented in this thread about focusing on Wizard's Scroll but now I don't see it. Am I going crazy? Anyway, as much as I'd dig Into The Unknown, I find myself veering more toward focusing on Wizard's Scroll for a while. Aw, heck. Ill waffle and claim I'm voting for both. :mrg...

Re: White Box Rules Update/Re-design

Count me as yet another who not only is confused as to the purpose and/or supposed 'niche' of S&W Lite but also seeing it as superfluous and, indeed, pointless. I say this as someone who cheers and loves super lite rpgs in general even including in this cut-down iterations of existing otherwise not-...

Re: White Box Rules Update/Re-design

ia baffling name change and that's a very good thing. It wasn't baffling to me. It was to protect the version of the game going forward. I hope I'm making the right decision now. I guess we will see. Oh, no. It wasn't baffling to me or any of us here or on G+ (and I get the whys), but it may have b...

Re: S&W White Box History?

My girlfriend has experienced all of my tiny portion of this stuff since 2010 despite her not having a stake in gaming at all. She thinks all of this stuff is funny. She's laughing at us and with us and, even being an 'outsider' thinks what Charlie is doing is awesome and feels for him during this c...

Re: White Box Rules Update/Re-design

I was starting to get excited (though with a bit of trepidation) about the former former WB:FMAG's re-release but now I'm actually even more excited as to its affirming of its identify and the stomping of its big, fat foot upon the earth and extending it's already extant power. Seriously, though...a...

Re: S&W White Box History?

All things (now? seemingly?) considered and also the fact that WB:FMAG is only just now (and happily has quickly enjoyed) it's own identity, why change anything? Why not keep it as is/was? If a "The" or a lack of "game" doesn't matter in the long run (and if it did, then why not change the name whol...
