"White Box Classics: Reluctant Heroes brings a touch of 1980s fantasy cinema to your Swords & Wizardry WhiteBox campaign. You'll find three new classes - the magical halflings called Feyweave Apprentices, roguish Swordsmen, and the tiny mischievous Pucks. Referees will find two new monsters, the tireless Devil Dogs and the explosive Two-Headed Dragon, to challenge their players. But heroism is not without its rewards, and two new magic items specifically designed for the classes in this book are also available!"
White Box Classics: Reluctant Heroes [Swords & Wizardry] By James M. Spahn is a twelve page call back to those Eighties Fantasy films that so many of us grew up with on VHS. White Box Classics: Reluctant Heroes takes this premise and runs with it for $1.99. This product does this by giving us a magical halfling PC class called Feyweave Apprentices who have just the right amount of Fey blood about them. We also get a rouge like swordsmen class and in addition there's the pucks. On the otherside based in the realms of the monsters we've got Devil Dogs & the two headed dragon.
And finally we've got two magic items that line right up with the classes presented within White Box Classics: Reluctant Heroes. Now if White Box Classics: Reluctant Heroes sounds like a love letter to the Lucas film's classic Willow that's because it is along with the video game Dragon's lair.
With Disney + reviving the classic Willow film property into a new streaming series this the perfect opportunity to present an updated version of the Eighties White Box Classics: Reluctant Heroes concepts for a new generation of players.
White Box Classics: Reluctant Heroes really lives up to the source material by adding in a classic bit of Eighties fantasy goodness for the Swords & Wizardry rpg or your favorite OSR system. So where could White Box Classics: Reluctant Heroes be used?! Well that's easy within a Seventies or Eighties inspired fantasy campaign or world. There's so much solid potential to unlock with White Box Classics: Reluctant Heroes that this could be a really solid addition to any players or DM's tool box for Swords & Wizardry.
