Fantastic Heroes & Witchery (hardcover)
Hardcover, 432 Pages
Prints in 3-5 business days
(This is the hardcover version of the book.) - This version 2.1 has been proofread (though some typos might remain), and more than 70 spells have been rewritten (so as to be somewhat different) and/or renamed. A couple of illustrations have been changed too. This 430 pages old-school RPG is compatible with most adventures, monsters, spells, etc., published for other retro-clones and simulacrums of the game (i.e. fantasy RPG of fighters, wizards, dragons, and underground adventures), but proposes a lot of options, such as 30 talents, 7 combat schools, 666 spells... or 40 classes, 12 races, and rules for science fantasy games with laser guns, space-suits, etc. It even proposes new rules for detailed and funny chase rules that are nonetheless simple to use.

Oct 30, 2014Wow where do you begin for one of the best retroclones on the market? Well this is the retro-clone system that you've been waiting for, this game system gives you the tools to run everything from sword & sorcery to Lovecraftian sword & planet all under a high quality hood. This one has production values that are very high, and the art really conveys the feel of the rules well. Fantastic Heroes & Witchery provides a streamlined game engine with a plethora of options that is broadly compatible with any edition of 'The world's most popular product of the imagination' as well as about 90% of the OSR retroclones on the market. This gives a DM a heck of a lot of adventure or module options. This book is intended for experienced DM's who are looking for that all inclusive system for their campaigns. It is intended for those already familiar with D&D and want to expand their campaign table top options. I'm very satisfied with what I've seen and where I can take my players with... More > this game system. All in all I've had an excellent experience with this product so far and I can wait to use this fine looking hardback at my table. This is not a 'sit on the shelf & look pretty game' instead this is an old school campaign system rpg that will provide years and years of play. I can't wait to unleash this one on my players! Cheers!< Less
May 1, 2014There are many direct clones of earlier editions of D&D out there, and they serve their purpose: to make these out of print rule sets available again for all to play. Some retro RPGs reach beyond the creation of reinstated rules, though -- they take the author´s personal vision of the classic game and share it with the world. Fantastic Heroes & Witchery is this kind of game: a cleaned-up, remixed, expanded AD&D 1st Edition with bits from various other versions, filled with new classes, spells and rules options. It was made to be directly compatible with as many of the other classic D&D-like rule sets as possible, has classes, rules and equipment for "Weird Tales" and "Sword and Planet" games, and presents everything in a concise, classy and well written package. A smashing success!
