Swords & Wizardry Light

A Quickstart for Gamers New and Old


Jane was battle weary — a few good hits and she would be slain. But the giant oaf in front of her was also bleeding from a number of deep cuts she had made with her blade. He swung his huge club... and missed! Without hesitation (but with her player rolling a die), Jane took her chance to thrust into the fiend's throat. And with a deep groan, the ogre fell before her blade!
