Decision Time: Microlite74 vs Swords & Wizardry
As of 6pm this evening, the final vote from my players is in. They’ve been debating since early April whether to continue the current campaign under Swords & Wizardry or convert it to Microlite74. (For background see Microlite74 is "better" than Swords & Wizardry? and Small Things In Rules Apparently Do Matter.) The deadline for voting was 6pm today and all the players voted. The result was four votes for Microlite74 to one vote for Swords & Wizardry. One player abstained — like me, he can’t see that it matters as both games are basically OD&D.
So we’ll be switching to Microlite74 2.0 with house rules from Swords & Wizardry with house rules this weekend. I’ll probably put together a “Microlite74 Special Edition” rulebook for my players with all the house rules soon, but that will not be done in time for this week’s game. I’m glad this is finally settled because the whole discussion was making my mind spin.
