Shadow, Sword and Spell is a fun game. Or at least I had a fun time playing a recent two adventure mini campaign. Though I will say that I really enjoy playing games and I find that in many instances the actual game being played is secondary. Get some decent players, let them do what they want and see where it goes. Generally a pretty good recipe for a fun night. But every system certainly brings new things to the table and enables different styles of gaming. SS&S is designed to emulate pulp fantasy, the world of down and out heroes and low magic. And it does those things pretty well. Having just finished up this short game I have some recent thoughts about everything.
