White Box: Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game is an easy to learn role-playing game in the style of the Original Edition from 1974 by Gygax and Arneson. It is based on Swords & Wizardy WhiteBox.

Unleash your imagination to dream of other worlds, where you roleplay heroic characters and go on adventures, just like in the days of old.

Slay a dragon!
Sometimes even the most reluctant adventurer will hear the call of the Wilderness and set out to slay a dragon, or at least steal its treasure!

Explore the unknown!
There is no limit to the lands you can explore and magic you can discover.

Fight on!
So grab your sword, mace or wand and travel beyond the borderlands and brace yourself to face great and terrible monsters. And remember, no matter what happens… Fight on!

Is there any update/revision/additions between the two downloads (Apr 1027, Oct 2016) that accounts for the page count difference, or is it just layout changes?

Is there any differences between the B&W cover version and the Red cover version, other than the cover? Amazon lists the B&W as newer but both as the same printing. Is the interior identical?

RPGnow uses the premium color offset printing, which is more expensive to produce. It looks much better than the standard print at Lulu.

Two questions for the publisher.

1) Is there still a slightly newer/revised coming soon?
2) Will any of the old cover options be availiable again as print on demand choices. I ask as I love the previous William McAusland and Stefan Poag covers.

This is the newer/revised version.

I will add the other covers when I can. I just don't have an ETA at the moment.

I have since picked up 4 more copies of the awesome digest sized book and all supporting material for our Whitbox gaming club "Order of the Crimson Die". The rules are simple and flow like melted butter allowing amazing stories and enhanced role playing to really shine through. I have so many good adventures written now. Game mechanics slowing things down and ruining the fun is now a thing of the past. 5 stars.

I gave up all other OSR games and even dropped my 5e campaign to launch my new White Box Home brew game. It opened with Werewolves at the temple of the Dog, proceded to the God Filled Plains where giant 200ft zombie clockwork golems roam chained to the sands of time and ended with the PC's bringing down the black sun and destroying the world and becoming Gods. The most fun I have ever had at the table period. White Box is the one to rule them all. My players couldnt believe how much fun they had. I cant recomend it highly enough.

I love this book. I got the print on demand and the quality is great.

This is my favorite of all the retro-clones!

I have to admit, this sparked my love for Swords & Wizardry anew. Thank you for making this - the layout, illustrations and the new thief class are all great.

Thanks Szymon! Sparking renewed interest in the game was a goal. Thanks so much for the kind words.

What are the names of the font/s used in the PDF. Specifically the Heading Font and the Body Text font. (I really like your choice of fonts).
Customer avatar
Charlie M September 22, 2016 6:46 pm UTC
Hi Chris,
I'm glad you like it. The heading font is Blackwood Castle, the body text is Book Antiqua.

Any chance in making a hard print option? I'd love to buy a dead tree version.

Hi albert,
As of now, not on OBS.

You can get softcover books at Lulu and Amazon. All the info on the print options are at the blog:

Travis Casey came to the rescue! He created the print files for me. So now a print option is available!

Is there a quick run-down on how this is different from the default White Box?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
