This one-page document was first included in Sword and Magic: Adventures on Fomalhaut as a sort of “mission statement”, intended to offer a personal view on old school gaming. It is consciously specific and highly subjective. Similar to The Quick Primer for Old School Gaming by Matthew J. Finch or Philotomy’s Musings, it represents a possible take on running and playing old school games in a way we find rewarding in our campaigns. I have recently realised it may be of interest separately from the system itself, so I am reposting it here. All that follows is unenforced personal opinion.
