An Excellent Quasi-Review of Dark Albion!

Today I'm busy getting ready to play some DCC, having just finished my Wild West game. I'm also busy putting together a Lion & Dragon campaign that I hope to start running regularly.

So, instead of writing a big blog entry today, I'm going to just pass on to you guys the link to a kind-of review/commentary on Lion & Dragon!

Over in the Swords & Stitchery blog, we get an an excellent kind of 'unboxing' review of L&D from the perspective of what it's context is in the D&D universe and the general framework of the OSR. 

Here's a quote: 

The system is described by the rpg blurbs as thus; "Lion & Dragon is a Medieval Authentic OSR game. With L&D, the rules of the original tabletop RPG have been adapted to create a more historically authentic medieval experience, to reflect the grittier and yet more mythic world of a magical medieval Europe." Which is both its boon & its bane. So is the hardback worth the price of admission, in a word yes. 

To read the rest of the review, check out the S&S blog entry!

And if you haven't done so yet, go check out Lion & Dragon!
