S&W WB Acquired

UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who contacted me in regards to my White Box search. Deals have been made, swag negotiated, and arrangements...er, arranged, so I'm all set. You guys are indeed the greatest role-playing fan base in existance today. I'm proud to be a part of the OSR, whatever that means this week.


Some of my regulars know that I'm a slave to whimsy and odd ball ideas. My latest has me thinking of projects to tackle once Stonehell is complete.

That vein of thought has managed to merge itself with a discussion I had with someone a few weekends ago, and I'm now thinking of coupling it with Swords & Wizardry White Box.

I'm aware that the WB rules remain available, but part of my idea involves taking a seed and nurturing it to its ultimate end--for weal or for woe. Thus, BHP White Box is almost ideal for my purposes.

Having just missed an eBay auction for one, I thought I'd cast my net upon the waters of my readers and see if someone has a gently used set they'll never find a use for. If so, before you put it up on eBay or offer it up to Noble Knight, drop me a line and we'll see if we can come to terms in either cash or swag.

I've got a set. I've never used it but the box cover has some minor damage to the cover art. The box came that way so I don't know what happened to cause the tear (and it was a complimentary copy for services rendered so I didn't return it). IIRC the tear is about an long and about a quarter inch at the widest point, slightly off of center.

If you're interested I'll snap a photograph when I get home and e-mail it to you.

I've got copies of the older WB rules on my hard drive--both the Brave Halfling PDF and Word doc files. I can email either or both to you.

I've got a couple of hardbacks and a paperback I got off of Lulu.com--not the boxed set booklets, but the whole shebang in one volume.

Thanks for the offers, guys. I appreciate them, but I'm all set now.
