Send in the Retroclones

I’ve recently become interested in D&D retroclones, and I was going to write a post comparing, contrasting and extolling their praises – but Rockjaw already has, so I’ll just link to his explanation, as it’s better than mine would have been.

My personal preference is Swords & Wizardry, with a side order of the OSRIC random dungeon generator. As someone said when AD&D came out – yes, Virginia, there were flamewars about RPG editions even then, albeit in the letters columns of magazines – OD&D “stimulates, rather than surrogates, the imagination”.
