Description Edit | History

de l'introduction:
Epées & Sorcellerie est un jeu de rôle inspiré du tout premier d’entre eux, publié en 1974 par Dave Arneson et Gary Gygax. Ce n’est pas une traduction, loin de là, mais une adaptation en français d’un jeu qui n’a d’ailleurs jamais été publié dans cette langue. Les règles originales sont déroutantes de simplicité et d’imprécision, pour qui connaît les versions ultérieures. Il n’en existe aucune version véritablement canonique, seulement une relecture souvent passée au filtre de l’histoire du jeu de rôle, les souvenirs des plus anciens joueurs, ou les interprétations aussi multiples que judicieuses.

Les règles de 1974 s’appuyaient elles-mêmes sur un jeu de combat à figurines, Chainmail, dont est issue toute l’histoire du jeu de rôles. J’y ai eu, en essayant de mettre au point, plusieurs fois recours, au point de renoncer à l’usage du dé à vingt faces, le fameux d20, devenu iconique du jeu, au profit des 2d6 pour lesquels il avait été initialement conçu. C'est de là que viennent, notamment, les capacités particulières des classes de personnages et de certaines créatures, qui diffèrent de celles de jeux ultérieurs de la même famille.

from the introduction (user translation):
Epées & Sorcellerie is a role playing game inspired by the very first one published in 1974 by Dave Arneson and Gary Gygax. This is not a translation, far from it, but rather a french adaptation of a game that has never been published anywhere before in that language. The original rules are startlingly simple and vague to anyone familiar with the later versions. No truly canonical version exists, only a rereading often filtered down through the history of role-playing games, the memories of the oldest players, or their interpretations which are as numerous as they are judicious.

The 1974 rules were based on the tabletop miniatures wargame "Chainmail", the historical source of all role-playing. I returned to them several times in the course of design, to the point of renouncing the use of the 20-sided die, the famous d20, icon of gaming, in favour of 2d6, for which the system was originally designed. From the 2d6 design, in particular, came the special capabilities of the character classes and certain creatures, which differ from those of subsequent games in the same family.
