I have zero interest in OSE but damn, those books look good! I'll probably get the Dolmenwood book (box?) once it's out though.
Where do you see this? I'm just curious.Picked up a copy of the all female edited and illustrated version of Swords & Wizardry. It's funny, because it didn't sell well (I think it had a successful Kickstarter, though), but the art is better than the regular S&W Complete, it has a sewn-in binding (as compared to the POD-style glue-in S&W normally has), and you can get it cheap. Now I'll keep it as my "shelf copy", and use the regular S&W Complete rulebook as my "beater copy". YMMV, but it's a really neat-looking book.
The Brawling system in Brancalonia would be quite good for Eastwood-like pre-fight banter.That would be "Goest thou ahead, maketh my day", I think!
It sounds like something even I could consider to play...I didn't get it personally, but one of the things my son wanted for his birthday was a game off of Steam called, wait for it, 5D Chess with Multiverse Time Travel, which is a mind-blowingly cool idea. I'll never play, but it sounds awesome.
The Brawling system in Brancalonia would be quite good for Eastwood-like pre-fight banter.
For example, in regards that line:
Sting Like a Bee! As a reaction, if a creature makes an attack that targets you, you can dodge the attack and make a beating that deals 1 additional whack against the attacker.
A beating doesn't need to be physical. It can be a Charisma based insultDoesn't count unless you can dodge it and offend the creature for being so inept at striking, Terrence Hill-style!
I don't like the cover illustration much. For my S&W I stick with Whitebox and own White Box Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game, which is neat and concise.
I think the cover artwork looks better without the text, which is obviously an issue, it should be designed with the type in mind. Or they could have done a Beatles/Led Zep and had no type on the cover.

This is my fav of the covers, I like the sparse, clean lines and vivid colours of this cover.
And also that one(s) they have seen are probably, um, lets say edge cases? Something like that...I recently heard someone refer to that version of S&W as the "vagina cover", on account of it looked like one to them, which made me think they haven't seen many vaginas.
Wow, I have the first edition and never got around to playing it. It's a great rpg to read though.After long printing and shipping delays endemic of 2021, I finally got my City of Mist print goodies. I got 2 slip case sets (core rules + supplements), plus a dice set and a deck of dangers:

The core rule slipcase came with a 3-panel GM screen; the supplement set comes with a map and an envelope of pinable clues keyed to locations and events in the Nights of Payne Town book.
