Free Swords and Wizard Setting - Doug Eastley's Swords Of Mars Setting From The Savage Swords of Anathor Blog

This is an eleven page mini Mars setting that works with the Swords and Wizardry retroclone. While I await my Warriors of Mars book from LuLu. This micro campaign outline contains a wealth of little add ins that the author has included 
  • A full Martian sand box with plenty of room for expansion and a few old school adventure lurers for PCs 
  • Tribes and variants to play with with and add as the DM sees fit  
  • Details and add ins on culture, religion, technology, and more old school style tropes to get the adventures rolling. 
  • Beginning city state location with just enough of an  outline to get the PC's motivated 
  • Fully customizable sand box  setting
    All of this material is free to use and done completely in the old school tradition and its perfect for an OD&D campaign set or a Swords and Wizardry game. I got a chance to take a look at the Warriors of Mars game on Friday and while the material will work with that book. There is going to have to be some work on the DM's part to modify and adapt certain features. Mars is a huge planet and this shouldn't pose a problem to any old school DM at all. This setting like all of the Savage Swords of Athanor material is well done and of a very nice old school quality. All in all this is a really nice free old school sand box of Barsoomian goodness just waiting to be used.
    The Savage Swords of Anathor blog also has a ton of support material for the Swords of Mars setting as well waiting to be utilized. This is really nicely done free OD&D setting.
