Swords & Wizardry Whitebox Rules Free PDF

Mythmere Games has just released the Swords & Wizardry Whitebox Rules in free pdf form. Looking through, it seems like this edition goes even further back than Swords & Wizardry--we're talking 3 original books here.

This makes me take a moment to wonder--are we set with Old-School simulacrum products? We seem to have plenty of them to choose from--GORE, OSRIC, Labyrinth Lord, BFRPG, Swords & Wizardry, etc. Are we to the point where we see more of an emphasis on publishing original items stemming from these efforts? Ceraqinly there have been some efforts, with folks like Brave Halfling Publishing, but I know I wouldn't mind seeing a bit more support for all these systems. I do know I'll be watching this link closely.

Great news! I shall be adding this to my list of things to review. Hurrah for those charming chaps at S&W.
