PLEASE NOTE: If you search online and come across a Lulu store containing Elf Lair Games products, these products are out of date and no longer current! Until I joined Drivethrurpg, my company store was on Lulu.com. I left the Lulu files active at the request of some fans who wanted the support to remain available through that site for the old versions that they had purchased. Elf Lair Games WILL NOT be supporting these old editions in the future. All current product is available at the links below. Thanks again for playing! Sally forth!

Spellcraft & Swordplay Core Rulebook

Join the new class of old school!

Hordes of slavering orcs close in. You're tired, battered and bruised, but far from beaten. You grip your heavy sword tightly, and blink at the sweat in yoru eyes. You're all that stands between the goodly folk of the village, and a curtain of eternal night. And going quietly isn't your style.

Between these covers lies everything you need to begin grand adventures of dark and gritty fantasy, high epic fantasy, or even fairy tale fantasy. All you need is some imagination and a few friends, and you're off! Inspired by the very earliest days of the hobby, Spellcraft & Swordplay uses a rules-light system that allows play in a fast, loose and cinematic style. It evokes the spirit of the old school, while providing some character customization not always present in other old school games.

Explore ancient ruins, rescue captive princesses, slay dragons, and build your own legacy of adventure and excitement with SPELLCRAFT & SWORDPLAY!

Monstrous Mayhem

The New Class Strikes Again! After awhile, goblins cease to be frightening, gold loses its luster, and underground dungeons, ruined cities and ancient temples ceace to be an attraction. Your players want new sights, new adventures, and new threats to challenge their skill, might and wits. Fear not! For those Referees who need to give their game that spark of something new, we present MONSTROUS MAYHEM, the first sourcebook for Spellcraft & Swordplay! Within these pages you will find a new Elite Path, rules for hedge magic and legerdemain, mass combat, underwater adventures, thug rules, a host of new monsters, and more! With all of these additions, Monstrous Mayhem is sure to become an invaluable resource for players and referees alike!

Spellcraft & Swordplay Basic Game

Since Spellcraft & Swordplay was released on Lulu in 2008, Over 1,000 copies have been sold. Now, we present a free PDF introductory "Basic Set," akin to those games in the legacy which S&S honors. Containing a streamlined (but complete) version of the rules and character progression to level 3, this 48-page book is a perfect introduction to the new class of old school, ideal for introducing new players to the game, or for just having an extra set of rules at the table!

Eldritch Witchery

A Return to the New Class of Old School!

Monsters, demons and devils. What horrors await you in dark caves and passages forgotten by mortal-kind? What eldritch secrets await in the dark? Will they be yours to claim or will you be claimed by them?

  • Two new elite paths, the Witch and the Warlock

  • Complete guidelines for running witch-centric adventures or incorporating these spellcasters into your existing game
  • And more!
