I may have throttled back on blog posting frequency this month, but in other writing arenas I have been picking up momentum. One big fat black marker scratch off of the to-do list was finishing up the fantasy supplement and revision of my old set of medieval battle miniatures rules: Swords & Shields.
The new rules—rechristened in suitably bombastic glory as By This Axe I Rule--are intended to be compatible with classical D&D and their attendant clones and spin-offs. Simple conversion rules allow you to port PCs, NPCs, and beastly critters from your campaign right onto the battlefield. Currently they support play at two different levels: skirmish/small battle (1 figure representing five warriors) or mid-sized battle (1:20).
If you like pushing lead around a table and are interested in some playtesting mayhem, drop me a line at kutalik at gmail the mail dot com and I will hook you up with the PDF.
