Here’s a shot of my comb-bound digest-sized PDFs of Swords & Wizardry WhiteBox:

I’m really excited about the WhiteBox rules. I’m planning to use them for my Forbidden Jungle campaign, but I’m not sure I can wait until that’s ready to kick off to play these.

There is a fair amount of errata in the rules yet. I’m hoping that we’ll be seeing a “second printing” along the lines of what S&W did for the Core ruleset recently, with corrections. I’ve been posting errors I’ve come across to the official forums.

    Looks good! Can the cover image be stretched to fill out the entire front? Don’t get me wrong, I am jealous, I want one of those!

    You can stretch it (up to the limits of the printer margins) but it looked a bit weird so I left it. Because of the logos on the front cover, just “blowing up” the image to fill the height of the page either crops off the title or crops off too much of the right side of the image.

    I also left the interior unstretched because the printing was pretty faint and some of the artwork looked not so good. (I also hope they darken up the shaded sections of tables and the house rules blocks as they’re barely visible in my prints.) You can see the wide borders at the top and bottom of the pages, but I figure I’ll just use them for house rule notes.

    That’s an unforeseen advantage of printing my own PDFs. I don’t feel bad about writing all over the thing if I want. I’ve always been pretty hesitant to write in books that I’ve paid for.
