Sword & Sorcery + Arcane Portal Review
Josh Look wrote: I like a number of Ares/Nexus games (even the much maligned Age of Conan), but man, I’ve not played one yet that isn’t a mess. I don’t think it’s just the translation from Italian. We played Galaxy Defenders quite a few times and I don’t think we played it correctly once. I’m told it’s great, but I wouldn’t know. My experience with GD aside, I was under the impression that S&S was a campaign game. Is that the case? I’d love to give it a shot if that isn’t the case.
You can play any of the campaign scenarios individually. Each scenario includes rules for how much XP, Gold, etc your characters start with. You still need to read the storybook for stuff that comes up during the scenario.
