Swords & Wizardry Encounter Contest Extended!

We’ve decided to extend the deadline for Happy Jacks S&W Encounter Contest to May 24th, 2015.  This gives you more time to get your entries spiffed up and us more time to judge all the entries.  The rules for the contest are as follows:

Come up with your best 1-2 page encounter for Swords & Wizardry.  It needs to be something which any S&W DM can drop into their game when a quick encounter is needed, for any version of S&W. So there should be a little bit of a story, maybe a twist, a small map, etc., not just “here’s three orcs in a cave”. It should be something similar to a 1 page dungeon ( but instead of a full dungeon it’s just a single encounter including the encounter environment, S&W stats for the encounter, and maybe a bit on how the encounter came to be.

Send your encounters to tim at happyjacks dot org.  The winner will receive a hardback copy of WhiteBox Omnibus by Barrel Rider Games and the runner-up will receive a softcover copy of that same work.  So please include your mailing address.
