Sasha Bilton on Swords & Sorcery D&D

In Pelgrane Press's See Page XX webzine this month, there's a fun little article by Sasha Bilton outlining some changes you could make to a 4e D&D campaign to get at a Swords & Sorcery feel, similar to what I've been talking about for a while now. Aside from the oversight of talking about how no healers are available if you prohibit clerics and paladins and then going on to talk about how the warlord fits great, it's a worthwhile read. I particularly like the idea of turning orcs and hobgoblins (and other humanoid monsters) into tribes or nationalities of humans.

Hi James, thanks for the thumbs up. You're absolutely right about Warlords be good healers, I really do know this - there is one in my party! I not sure how that slipped through the net.
