My Daughter's First RPG Book

So, my kid cleaned up at her end of year academic awards ceremony. She totally rocked it. As a reward for her hard work, I decided to buy her a copy of the RPG book of her choice. She's only 11 years old, so I figured I'd offer up OSRIC, Swords and Wizardry (Complete or Core Rules), Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperboria, and Lamentations of the Flame Princess Grindhouse Edition.

Yes, that last option is my little joke for you, +James Raggi. And to be truthful, I'm not one of those people who would freak out if my kid was interested in that fine product (which already is in my possession).

We looked at all of them and she decided she wanted the Swords and Wizardry rules. Since this is her first book, I figured the S&W Core Rules were probably the best option.

So, here you go. Lucy's first RPG book:

What? I can't hear you over this excellent retro cover.

Kudos, kiddo! I'm very proud of you and hope you will be as successful an RPG geek as your dear old dad.


  1. Hold it!

    You mean to say, up until now you've been DENYING her RPG books?

    You monster!

    Quick, someone run down to the tavern and round up some adventurers...
