White Box Options

One of the nice things about the Swords and Wizardry White Box Edition is the inclusion of many optional rules to allow for very customized games. The following "House Rule" rule options will be available in the Athanor campaign:
  1. Page 1: Rolling Attributes.
  2. Page 3-4: Expanded attribute bonuses for Strength, Intelligence, Wisdom and Dexterity.
  3. Page 7: M-U Advancement
  4. Pages 8 - 10: Character Races are not used. All Athanor characters are human.
  5. Page 12: AC vs. AAC — we will be using AAC.
  6. Page 16: Death and Binding Wounds will both be used.
In addition, I will be allowing spell-casting characters to use spell special effects to give some color to magic use.

I plan on keeping house rules about this short. Part of the point of using a simple rule set like Swords and Wizardry is to avoid having complex house rules!
