The debated Swords & Wizardry single Save – nothing new

The Adventure Begins - AD&D 2e intro box

The Adventure Begins – AD&D 2e intro box

Back in 1999, TSR released this starter box for 2nd ed AD&D. I got it “extra” in a game swap. In my opinion it’s a very good starter set for D&D. It has got a short adventure, a small sandbox area, a small village for the first adventure, a short adventure book, a few character folders with pregenerated PCs and a very nice DM screen with solid advice for the newbie DM.

But most interestingly, it uses a one save system, just like Swords & Wizardry.

So, nothing new there…

One thought on “The debated Swords & Wizardry single Save – nothing new

  1. I have to admit, one of the things I’ve been toying with for my own take on things is single save, but modified by the appropriate ability score (so Dex for getting out of the way of things, Con for resisting poison, etc.).

    Seems easier than having a bunch of numbers (which in a lot of OSR games all go up at the same time anyway).
