Real life has made progress on Microlite74 Swords & Sorcery much slower than I liked the past few weeks. However, I have just uploaded a new draft to the Donor’s File Area (Draft 8) and I hope to have a Beta 2 release available in a few days. Major work is still being done in magic items, both the ancient lost civilization type (that is, “standard” 0e items) and the more type of magic items made by binding spirits. More detailed rules for poisons and disease are also in the works given that poison and disease are often more important in S&S settings than in more standard 0e/1e settings. Spirit rules have also been slightly expanded.
