New S&W White Box based RPG from Barrel Rider Games — The Hero's Journey

Has pretty much everything I don't like about S&W and White Box: Single Saving Throw; the weird d6+1, etc, hit dice; low level limits; d6 based skill system (1 in 6, 2 in 6, etc); minimalist ability score modifiers (from -2 to +2);  but if you like those things, it's worth a look.

Basically incorporates several of  Barrel Riders's White Box supplements. Mostly new classes.

Also uses armor as damage reduction.

Great cover, clearly inspired by the old Hobbit cover.
