The Pay-What-You-Want (aka Free) version the Dungeon Delving Undying Light is finally available!
Dungeon Delving Undying Light is a trimmed down and simplified version of Swords & Wizardry. This game takes the Continual Light edition and cleans up the rules and the formatting, then adds backgrounds, more monsters, rules for morale and reaction rolls, additional minor optional rules, four optional systems (True Magic Rituals, Action Points, Body Points, Advanced Combat), and some basic explanations for the referee on how to handle dungeon and wilderness exploration. Designed to be easy to play and easy to teach to those new to tabletop roleplaying games while retaining all the fun of exploring strange new lands and crawling through dark and dangerous dungeons. Referees can easily create their own adventures and campaign settings or use adventures and setting designed for Swords & Wizardry or other early editions and variants of the world’s most popular tabletop fantasy roleplaying game. The complete game — all the standard rules, monster and spell descriptions, and guidelines for the GM on adventuring procedures — are covered in a mere 19 pages.
The Pay-What-You-Want (aka “Free”) version of Dungeon Delving Undying Light is two-columns and is letter-sized with less art that the paid version. The paid version is digest-sized, single-column with larger type and includes more art and sample blank dungeon maps and dungeon geomorphs. The text is the same exception references to the blank dungeon maps and dungeon geomorphs in the paid version have been removed. While you are welcome to download and enjoy the Pay-What-You-Want version for free, a dollar or two would always be appreciated.
