Recent OSR Purchases

Three very cool things I bought recently.  I am sure you have seen these on many other blogs.  Not really a review, just a couple thoughts on them.

Swords and Wizardry White Box edition released by Brave Halfling Publishing.  What can I say?  Been waiting for this for a while, but I finally got it in my grubby hands on Friday.  I love it!  Just the feel of a boxed set is so cool.  I also got the special boxed set adventure included as I had ordered in January.  This looks great next to my OCE Dungeons and Dragons box, and are almost identical in size.  John Adams has gone through his own little mini hell getting these things produced, and it was worth the wait.  Thanks John!  Also, I hope that the momentum of the boxed set produces even more products for the WB S&W edition.  Now if I could just find time to play a game of this.  :)  

Fight On! and Knockspell magazines continue to amaze me at their content.  Fan produced content for the old school games, and high quality to boot.  What terrific products to have available for us. I can't help but think back to the days of my Dragon mag subscription and the excitement I felt opening a new issue.  I get that same feeling now perusing the pages of these two great zines.
