RÆDWALD
A Roleplaying Game of Outlaw Scum
In an Anglo-Saxon World
BY
LEE REYNOLDSON
An Alternate Rules Set for Swords & Wizardry: Whitebox

INTRODUCTION
The world of Rædwald is a world where the bond of the warband, the oath of loyalty between warrior and king, your word, your honour and your status means everything. It is a world where family, community, and the king's laws are a shield against misfortune.
Unfortunately for the player characters the world of Rædwald is one in which they have none of these things. Instead, they are outsiders; wolfshead outlaws. Tired of merely surviving they take coin from a lord, and now serve as his wolfpack, a band of ruthless, expendable outlaw scum.
Working in the shadows of society and the darkness of night, the wolfpack does the type of work that requires more subtlety than a warband can bring to bear, and work so low that a lord's proud warriors would balk at it. In return for this, faithful wolves can expect their lord to be a generous béaga bryttan, a giver of rings and treasure. Live long enough serve faithfully enough and you might win back a place of honour and perhaps one day become lords in your own right.

  4. Hey, Pat yes I started posting stuff at the S&W project sub-forums then OD&D and RPGnet. Now that the first draft is (more or less) done and I've started editing I thought Redwald could do with a blog, previously I'd been posting Redwald stuff on my writer's blog. Glad you like it.
