As for the S&W KS it is starting this summer and is meant to open the eyes to some of our new supporter for RA who are not familiar with the rule set. We will have some nice incentives and some lower prices than retail on this kickstarter but it will not be the craziness that Rappan Athuk is. Also the plan is to get funding to get this book put into the faux-leather cover and into brick & mortar stores. Therefore, you should be able to purchase the book in retail stores this fall (especially for those who need a little break from the kickstarter).

As a bonus goal if we hit the mark we will add art to the S&W Monster book along with more monsters. As a high bonus goal we will contract Erol Otus to do the art.

Actually if someone less Blonde than me wants to start a new post about it then I can comment on it with all the info.

I'm less Blonde!

Haha, thank you!

Here is the plan: Swords & Wizardry Complete Rules

Coming in July: We are going to print the Swords & Wizardry Complete Rules in a tough, signature-stitched hardcover binding for distribution. Start Goal $10,000. If we hit our first Bonus Goal $12,500 we will print the long awaited 2nd printing of the Monster Book with new art and MORE monsters! And if we raise $15,000 we'll have Erol Otus do the Cover Art!

Kthulhu - I think that you're still a little blonde. S&W is both D&D AND OGL. ;)

Any word on what the pledge levels are going to be? I'm curious as to what the amount will be needed for the book itself.

Either way, I'm gauranteed to be a backer. =D

Though here is a question for the material itself.

Is the book going to be the S&W Core Rules (materials from some of the 'original' supplements missing)? Or the Complete rules (all rules and information from all 'original' supplements)?

EDIT: Yes I saw the wording 'Complete Rules', I jsut want to verify the definition of what I think it is.

I might not be right with my terminology, feel free to correct me.

Yes the COMPLETE rules with all it's glory.

Pledge $35 or more

Orc: Orc lairs contain the super-durable signature-stitched hardcover copy of the Swords & Wizardry Complete Rulebook, the PDF, and a pad of character sheets. But wait! Down these stairs in the next level, there are even richer rewards...

For the rest of the rewards you'll have to wait until July

Cheliax

Hmm if that's what the 'Orc Level' gets you, I can't wait for the Dragon level >_>

I'm definitely in. I have the soft copy of the S&W ruleset but haven't had a chance to play it yet. In addition to perks, I'd like to see in the lower pledges rewards that get you multiple copies of the books. For example if $35 gets you a copy, then I would enjoy seeing something like $70 or such for two copies and so forth. Most of my current players only bought the Pathfinder corebook after months of playing the game so having multiple copies of the rules to pass out when we are first learning the game would be helpful. I suppose I could buy multiple copies of the soft cover, but the new hardback sounds like it will be oh-so shiny, especially if it gets the Erol Otus art.


Paizo Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

Looking forward to this. I'll be grabbing a few copies to be sure. Pad of character sheets is great. Fingers crossed for a dm screen somewhere in there too... :)


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'm in. My wallet is already giving me the evil eye, but I'm in.

Just out of curiosity, any chance of a bonus goal for adding the gnome to the available PC races (or half-orc, but they first appeared in AD&D if I remember correctly)?

Shadow Lodge

Any further information?


Dotted for interest.

Andoran

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Hmm, it would be good to have a copy for study.

Cheliax

Is there any difference of the new Complete S&W to the existing Complete S&W book?

Anyway, to fund my kickstarter addiction I want to sell my copy of the limited Edition of the Complete S&W (signed by Bill and Matt). But I can not find a price anywhere. Does someone have an indication of how much I can ask for?

Cheliax

I believe the Kickstarter will just be for a deluxe version of S&W Complete.

Shadow Lodge

Same book, as far as anything I've seen, except with the better binding that FGG has put on their hardcovers since Tome of Horrors Complete.

I also remember one of the Frogs talking about an updated Monster Book for S&W perhaps being one of the bonus goals for this Kickstarter. To which I say...AWESOME!

I guess that will be an update of this book:

Swords & Wizardry OE Reloaded

Yes. Hopefully along the lines of ToHC, with every monster having it's own page, a description, and an illustration.

Thank you Ben for posting!

You guys really should make me an honorary Frog. :P


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Modules Subscriber

Hmm... is there any reason the Red Dragon level will allow me to add my name to the rule book as a Green Dragon slayer?

Andoran

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Hmm. Will the S&W version of RA be available anywhere? It might be worth investing in this for an alternative.

An error that was caught just after someone pledged the level, which means that BlondeFrog can't do the edit on it. It is corrected in the main text, however.

Red Dragon level means you are listed as a Red Dragon Slayer. Sorry about that!

It most definitely will be available, TOZ.

Shadow Lodge

Woo hoo! I'm a SUPERFAN!

I caved. I'm a Red Dragon Slayer. Green too. :P

Shadow Lodge

How appropriate it would be for me to pledge at the Troll level. :)

Shadow Lodge

Nah, you should pledge at the Red Dragon level. Using multiple accounts.

Andoran

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

I'm just a poor E-4. I've spent too much on Kickstarters already with Rappan Athuk and others.

Shadow Lodge

Well, I doubt you'd be interested. This Kickstarter doesn't come in a Pathfinder flavor.

Andoran

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Unfortunately I'm also a book collector. :(

Shadow Lodge

Oh well. You might even look through it and realize that the rules are a bit more substantial than simply asking the GM "Mother May I?"

:P

Andoran

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Let's not get crazy here. :)

I should go review the PDF sometime soon.

If it came with the GM's beverage of choice the answer might just well be "alright." At least, that's true in my game.

We hit over $15k, Erol Otus for cover art!!

I wanted green and Matt changed it to Red at the last minute and I missed that one referencing the green. I still think it should be green but he argued that the hardest dragons to always beat are the red ones so he won out. oh well.

Layout and Design, Frog God Games

That's true, as long as you're talking about Evil dragons. :)

But the kewlest chromatic dragons are the Blues!

Ok, I have not seen any info on the "newly written Introductory Module". Is that going to be available in print or PDF only?

And what is the title of it?

I can't believe how much money I have spent on you guys in such a short time.

I passed the info about the Kickstarter along to an OSR group I occasionally game with.


"Frog God Games has a new Kickstarter project: the reprint of the Swords & Wizardry Rules. Everyone is talking about it! These old school rules are right in line with Gary's vision of the game. It is good to see them continuing the tradition started in 1973 and keeping the flame alive. I am so appreciative of the added efforts of Frog God Games to donate a portion of all book sales to the Gygax Memorial Fund. Several other companies are similarly providing support to include, True Dungeon, Wizards of the Coast, and many others. It is wonderful to see our industry coming together to make Gary's memorial a reality." -Gail Gygax

No title yet but it will be print and pdf.

Pathfinder Creative Director, Frog God Games

Beat me to the punch, Blonde Frog. I just got the notification of Gail's awesome statement!


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Modules, Tales Subscriber

Part of me wants to support the Swords and Wizardry Kickstarter, part of me says that I can't afford it. I never played old school DnD, I started in 3.5, so I play Pathfinder now. The goodies in this Kickstarter are awesome, but I don't think I'd be playing in another system anytime soon.

The thing that makes me consider it is Bill's comment that he taught his kids to play at a young age (5? 8?), and I know that my son won't be able to grasp the Pathfinder rules until he is a bit older.

-Aaron

At TriOmegaZero: I'm only a poor E6 (Trying to make E7) and I can't afford much after Rappan Athuk and Reaper Kickstarters.

Andoran

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Hey, that Reaper kickstarter is crazy. Don't feel bad about it. :)


Going to be a record year for awesome gaming stuff on Kickstarter - I'm in for Rappan Athuk, S&W, Reaper Bones, Fate of the Norns, Traveller.

I am almost afraid to check Kickstarter now. Almost.

Let's not threadjack:
Yeah, it's a REALLY good value for $100. Even if I have to learn how to paint my own miniatures now.

Well Aaron, if Reaper makes their next goal you'll have the PDF of the rules and can teach the kids to play - and maybe paint too ;)
