Beyond Belief Games Releases S&W based Woodland Warriors

Beyond Belief Games has published Woodland Warriors - a woodland creatures role playing game based on Mythmere Games’ Swords & Wizardry. I’ve been following BBG’s updates in the S&W forums and hope to entice my wife into a game now that it’s available.

“WOODLAND WARRIORS is a fantastic little role playing game suitable for kids and adults alike. It uses the popular Swords & Wizardry Core with modifications to more closely suit the genre (for example, WOODLAND WARRIORS uses D6 throughout), which itself is based on the original role playing game of medieval fantasy adventure. Readers of Redwall and other fantasy-animal books will love this game. Set in the Alder Vale, Stonewell Abbey is a place of learning for the Kind and a bastion against evil. Players take the role of Mice, Moles, Hedgehogs, Squirrels and Badgers, who must protect their Abbey against the Verminous Rats and Weasels that pour down from the Murkenhills, intent on pillage and plunder. Danger and adventure awaits - are you brave enough to put your sword to the defence of Stonewell?”

Woodland Warriors is available for $5 on RPGNow as a downloadable, 114 page PDF. It includes a small campaign setting and sample adventure...Seems like quite a bargain. I hope it becomes available in print as well.

I dig it. As a fan of the Redwall series, that could right up my alley.

I was fortunate enough to see some of the play test drafts and I have to say, it is several kinds of awesome. The d6 mechanic works really well and the background is just wonderful. I hope to be able to run it for my niece and nephew soon.
