Ursined, Sealed and Delivered (S&W)

Note: This is the Swords & Wizardry version.

One of the One Night Stands series, Ursined, Sealed and Delivered is a newly written adventure module, but its a truly unique window into the early days of the game. The module is written by Dennis Sustare, the designer and author of the original Druid class that has become a key character class in virtually every fantasy game ever written since 1978. Ive done almost no editing of Denniss text, although the tournament format has been shifted around to be more easily used during play. The result is that you are about to read an adventure thats a direct window into the imagination of one of the great figures of fantasy gaming. Any typographical errors or glitches in the flow of the adventure are the responsibility of the editor, and all the high-adventurous moments of this fast-moving, gripping adventure are to the credit of the author. In addition to being written by Dennis Sustare, the module has cover artwork contributed by Paul Jaquays, who is also one of the great figures of fantasy gaming art. This new artwork sees the return of Pauls unique style, which will be instantly recognizable by those who gamed during the seventies and early eighties; it is an iconic, original vision of swords & sorcery that has not been seen on the cover of a module for decades. Were proud to be able to bring a new piece of Jaquays art to younger gamers who may never have seen examples of it before. He portrays a world that is stark and fierce, more visceral than art based on high fantasy, with the sort of rough-edged heroes who inhabit the fiction of sword & sorcerys earlier days, before the world-shaking influence of JRR Tolkien rearranged the foundations of the genre at every conceivable level. This module was written for play at North Texas RPGCon 2010. It uses the Swords & Wizardry Rules and has been adapted for use in Pathfinder: The Core Rules are available as a free .pdf file at the games website, www.swordsandwizardry.com. Swords & Wizardry is a retro-clone game, mirroring the rules of the original 1974 fantasy roleplaying game designed by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson. 200 copies only of the first printing.
